Caring 07:06
Desperate, lonely Nihilistic Empty, longing Turning sadistic find your place in community and protect each other from these wretched natural laws that bind us and don't give a damn no thing in this world is unnatural every thing we are is a product of the cold, violent system that forged us The one of different skin is your sibling The one of different language still sings the same song We want the same thing The one of different belief is a best friend Waiting to see This world through your eyes The money and the fame are immaterial I know that the cosmos tempts us to mimic what it has done To take, to oppress the weak But don't you see, we've invented the weakness Enough of choosing values that reflect our strengths Circular reason will leave us unfulfilled I know it hurts to expose our selves but please extend your hand The one that speaks of hate, they have been hurt Those that feel this rage, they are more afraid of you Than they will admit Those that claim hatred know of it not If they knew us well enough to hate, they Would see we're all deserving of love, like them like them Desperate, lonely Nihilistic Empty, longing Turning sadistic The one of different skin is your sibling The one of different language still sings the same song We want the same thing The one of different belief is a best friend Waiting to see This world through your eyes Systems of hierarchy encourage this Compete with them 'til there's no one left But public puppeteers who hoard all of the wealth Who believe what ever puts coin in their hand

You wish to end A pain that you just Don't understand Don't understand An ally in this But never have you had One to call friend One to call friend Affection in side You'd rather die Refuse to connect Refuse to connect You're mentally ill Awed only by violence Won't introspect Self no suspect Get lost Back off You're unqualified to Handle our lives Get Lost Back off You are a disgrace to Harpistik strife While you study the art of death there's No time for joy No time for joy While you think this comes as a strength, well, Pain you employ Pain you employ Apathy and anger are easy, such Entitlement Entitlement To end suffering by killing the suffering Convenience Convenience Get lost Back off Your fury pales by a Compassionate mind Get lost Back off You'll be forgotten and We will be kind Your pride, it marks fragility I'm sorry, I must laugh To feel threatened by a passive value Certainly you must be daft All prejudice starts with the likes of you Who never forgive Always insist that None may resist the Judgment of your first guess You are me The part that I didn't need Childishness Childishness Where's the consent Where is the temperance Impatience Impatience Get lost Back off You're unqualified to Handle our lives Get lost Back off You'll be forgotten and We will be kind Your pride, it marks fragility I'm sorry, I must laugh To feel threatened by a passive value Certainly you must be daft All prejudice starts with the likes of you Who never forgive Always insist that None may resist the Judgment of your first guess

In the hollows of mind, where we're all confined The echoes are deafening, subconscious reckoning The tyrant in side, it has always always lied Fearing vulnerability, can't comprehend unity Revenge or punishment, revenge or punishment Identical, Identical Revenge or punishment, revenge or punishment Identical, Identical Oh the killer, it claims, zero sum be the name Of the game that we play, as if we're coded that way Tolerance for the weak, cheapest escape does it seek As if an is is a must, as if an is is a must There's more than you, there's more than you Structural proof, a higher truth Order control, chaos anarchy False equivalence, false dilemma Repressed knowledge all around, written, waiting to be found Scholars, fighters, big and small, masses remember not all all Science to open your eyes, dissolve hatred and the lies We can have peace, and the fullest of lives While you dance in the shadows, our compassion grows, aglow You've no one to follow you, grace not your attitude Oh, your anger is apathy, does not a thing for me A god of death knows not mercy, death is a coward's peace Revenge or punishment, revenge or punishment Identical, Identical Revenge or punishment, revenge or punishment Identical, Identical There's more than you, there's more than you Structural proof, a higher truth Order control, chaos anarchy False equivalence, false dilemma Repressed knowledge all around, written, waiting to be found Scholars, fighters, big and small, masses remember not all all Science to open your eyes, dissolve hatred and the lies We can have peace, and the fullest of lives Repressed knowledge all around, written, waiting to be found Scholars, fighters, big and small, masses remember not all all Science to open your eyes, dissolve hatred and the lies We can have peace, and the fullest of lives Reason, your logic rests upon a postulate that blames the victims Dig deep, there are details further down, evidence whispers to you all around, why can't you admit you might be wrong You do fear every thing you see You'll stray endlessly Your arrogance will be your demise And you'll be all alone until you open you eyes

Once an old dead wasted land It called to me, it reached for my hand Promised wonder and adventure To any one who'd show it their dreams Now I've left that wasted land A symbol of my loneliness I can't shake its pull on my mind It beckons me to leave you behind Now I know my sense of us Was mirrors then, was devoid of trust Society was all other Community a conformist lie Endless longing Self-imposed isolation Bitter, frightened A cult of the hero Compassion, weakness What a fool I have been The love I wanted A thing to get, to take She held out her hand Just like the old waste land Some thing for me, to become mine Now I understand All that the gods had planned Yet it was their children who knew Play, work, achieve together Alienation, be gone No gods, no masters Why trade when one can provide Why hide far away from society No gods, no masters In that old, dead, wasted land Our skills beget Notions of power Scarcity, it all disappeared But traditions They filled up its place The ruins, the artifacts Core values that Were arbitrary Property, divinity, lies Hierarchy from Good will's demise Overcorrection, blank slate Nihilism And solipsism Overcorrection, An individualism New disconnection Earth was worse, I trusted them Those archists that Topped me with a crown Tyranny of majority It had tricked us In to inaction Old gods' ethics Demand trial by neglect None are islands But they sure had us fooled Harpistiktu saw They felt compassion for all But were silenced We faced worst violence Amendment we made But too little too late Even those who prayed refused aid Now they understand But blood is on our hands Victory, again, bittersweet Play, work, achieve together Alienation, be gone No gods, no masters Why trade when one can provide Why hide far away from society No gods, no masters

And in the end there is no thing left to pray for 'Cause every thing is either lost or has been found So just bang and crash and clang and dance until you fall apart 'Cause otherwise you'll have to start all over again

As gods above We are freedom itself Floating on content and unity Our purity’s divinity perfection With nothing to do Only to be And feel these energies Completely secure in the void of eternity How could this be Fantasy Is it real Or is it only Just imagination Perception’s inflammation As the avatars below We are slaves to ourselves Drowning in sadness, segregation Our hate’s fearful misfortune There’s just so much to do To love hate laugh confuse lust and awe, wonder abuse We are fully secured in to the system But could it be real Does that make any sense How these events Take place in some harmony Of madness or happiness Peace or chaos Why are we here What’s the meaning of this Our second reality Perhaps we’ve just forgotten But if we’d return To our purity Combined source and experience Perhaps we’d just do it all again How could this be Fantasy Is it real Or is it only Just imagination Perception’s inflammation But could it be real Does that make any sense How these events Take place in some harmony Of madness or happiness Peace or chaos

about

This is the companion album to [Feind], and a concept album that expresses Shyft's escape from nihilism, hatred, and revenge. Contrasting the dark, harsh, and absolutely evil atmosphere of [Feind], here there is brightness, color, hope, and joy. Aggression and darkness are not entirely lost here, as there's still a long fight to be had following the vanquishing of one's inner (or escaped) demons, but it's a unifying cause that remains, an uncertain but shared road toward utopia.

Both albums are loaded with body music, but where [Feind] is fight music, here we have dance music. The psychological thrillers return, but it's their more whimsical moments, and they are accompanied by clips sampled from more light-hearted inspirations.

about

Shyft Denver, Colorado

This is Shyft’s gabber/hardcore/breakcore/drill’n’bass project. Distorted heavy bass kicks, thick synths, and powerful melodies are the aim here- unless it’s chopped up progressive percussion. Influences come from many places, and not just the gabber or brain dance scene. It ranges from techno, trance and house genre classes to organic genre classes such as folk and metal. ... more
