about

Purchase physical CD, album one: www.createspace.com/2167202
Album two: www.createspace.com/2168095

Purchase of complete digital album on Bandcamp includes instrumental versions of Red Ankh songs that otherwise contain lyrics.

Unofficially released in 2008 and remastered for release in 2013, this is an industrial metal double album by Red Ankh that features many interluding industrial tracks by alternate alias Shyft. Mostly future pop, Shyft also features a bit of darkwave and electro industrial on this album. Like on the first Blue, the metal tracks on this album were originally instrumental pieces that have been reworked with new vocals.

Lyrics tell a few stories from Shyft's dreams and writings and express internal conflict from his teenage years, but mostly deal with ethics and the paradox of understanding others.

Track Name: Pyrottii Mozkokramm
Some people they are just passengers in life
Wait their turn and never really do they take a chance
They may plan but rarely ever do they do
They have their use, propelling you and I

Some people they are just passengers in life
Wait their turn and never really do they take a chance
They may be a frustration some moments but
Competitors, we need our followers

There are those who just don't seem to learn
What good are the fools who deny science, logic
Embarassing cogs in the great machine are just
That, simple tools needed to keep all things moving, moving
But do they keep our progress back
Are they hurtful
Are images lesser beings
Than personalities

What makes a thoughtful being
What defines our powerful minds

Some people they are just passengers in life
Wait their turn and never really do they take a chance
They may plan but rarely ever do they do
They have their use, propelling you and I

There are those who just can't seem to feel
All the magesty in Universe, her beauty
They take our products and give no thing back to us
But denial on the whole is not an evil is it
We must deny things to survive
Are we evil
May be they just live easier
Lives than that of our kind

What makes a thoughtful being
What defines our powerful minds

To each its own judgment call
But there must be objective means

All our lives
We stand to justify our
Strengths in line against
these average minds

All our lives
We stand to justify our
Strengths in line against
these average minds

Some people they are just passengers in life
Wait their turn and never really do they take a chance
They may plan but rarely ever do they do
They have their use, propelling you and I

Do we need to
Empathize with them for
Us or them if
They're not worth our moments

Some people they are just passengers in life
Wait their turn and never really do they take a chance
They may be a frustration some moments but
Competitors, we need our followers
Track Name: Shyft - Slight Prison
There you are
And they are all here
Invisible prism
Locked you, dear
They call for freedom
You stand still
We’d never free them
As they have spirits to kill

It pains me to watch and it pains me to see
I’ll lock them up but I’ll set you free

I’ve set you free
but your eyes wish to stay
Looking back to him
in a tragic way
Without hesitation
I send him to you
Of this faithful gesture
You have no clue

It pains me to watch and it pains me to see
I’ll lock them up but I’ll set you free

Push you away
Track Name: Tundrome
[What a fancy, these absolutes
Can you value that without reason
If the feeling is arbitrary
Can it really be for ever]


Unconditional love is a farce with empty pockets
In reality none love ah-all
Love is earned when conditions are met and rules are followed
And when below the threshold one falls...


Love is cast away or new conditions are made, oh...


Black, white, a trap closed round your mind
Build the walls toward the sky
Don't you know I'd sooner die

Than see the world through jaded eyes
Got to see if I can try
To feel and know what is right


[Some things can not be understood
Without foundational knowledge
What is love without respect
What is honor to the beasts]


Those that do not understand honor usually comprehend loyalty
Can they be trusted
But a bond without reason is meaningless and so those
Who celebrate loyalty can't be trusted


I stray from my way and new conditions are made, oh...


Black, white, a trap closed round your mind
Build the walls toward the sky
Don't you know I'd sooner die

Than see the world through jaded eyes
Got to see if I can try
To feel and know what is right


I stray from my way and new conditions are made, oh...

Love is cast away or new conditions are made, oh...


Black, white, a trap closed round your mind
Build the walls toward the sky
Don't you know I'd sooner die

Than see the world through jaded eyes
Got to see if I can try
To feel and know what is right
Track Name: Shyft - Life Drive
so much hate so much sorrow why must it be this way,
if we'd just stop this madness but hey it's not gonna happen anytime today.

I ruin lives I turn on mine there is so much I shouldn't have done,
I guess there's no turning back but the past clouds the sun.


Life's in ruins but you're hanging on,
to what? something but it's nothing much.
Hopes and dreams but nothing real,
just hoping for something to feel.
Pain is climbing higher over the rubble always,
feeding on the fallen hopes dead dreams.
Sorrow casting onto the future,
from a past that can never come back.


So there's no light no truth no happiness and the darkness is never fading,
so it's a never ending life of death death's always raiding...life

The turning points all lead to sadness eventually the forks to a dead end,
you can keep going from there but they'll always come back my friend.


Life's in ruins but you're hanging on,
to what? something but it's nothing much.
Hopes and dreams but nothing real,
just hoping for something to feel.
Pain is climbing higher over the rubble always,
feeding on the fallen hopes dead dreams.
Sorrow casting onto the future,
from a past that can never come back.


And why would you want it? all it does is hurt you,
but oh you want it so because it's all you've got to turn to.

Defending life from life and pain from more pain,
it doesn't seem like there is anything to gain.

BUT THERE IS IT'S THERE ALL WE MUST DO IS FIND IT,
TO GET IT AND HOLD IT AND DEFEND IT!

BUT UNTIL THEN,
WE LOSE SIGHT OF IT ALL... MORE AND MORE!


Life's in ruins but you're hanging on,
to what? something but it's nothing much.
Hopes and dreams but nothing real,
just hoping for something to feel.
Pain is climbing higher over the rubble always,
feeding on the fallen hopes dead dreams.
Sorrow casting onto the future,
from a past that can never come back.
Track Name: Grind Dump (Aura for Allosaurus)
A world of bright light, glipse of oddity
Squint, open my eyes
Conflict at water's edge vrek veer verdohs
Stolen people's lives
A friendly monster, a gray dinosaur
Until he hungers
His magic, too strong, so I must speak him
Torreffee zunders

Skipping along the beach allosaurus searches for aura
Not afraid to suck it out of us
But his guilt, dekliyek, haunts him unsure if he is justified
Tears for us he sheds, oh shaiyetreeus

Could he not gather aura from elseworld
Korkoodah hoorome
He in truth is a coward, deldekka
Not to leave his home
Sir, your life, can justify sacrifice
Of many others
I am a wizard, I erkden help you
Do you want it, erz

Vosh vedosh, if this is a trick I will
Not be drek amused
How can your magic do what I can't do
I am so confused
Speaketh the monster, no impossible
You want my aura
Be gone, koraktus, this is my beach droh
Can't understand vra

Skipping along the beach allosaurus searches for aura
Not afraid to suck it out of us
But his guilt, dekliyek, haunts him unsure if he is justified
Tears for us he sheds, oh shaiyetreeus

Skipping along the beach allosaurus searches for aura
Not afraid to suck it out of us
But his guilt, dekliyek, haunts him unsure if he is justified
Tears for us he sheds, oh shaiyetreeus
Track Name: Shyft - Just Play
Life's a game
To keep us entertained
Get ready
And play

There are a few rules
There are many levels
But you can make your own
Choose your own

They change as you move
And as time goes on
And a few
Stay the same

But like I said
Before
You can
Shift it

~Though creating your own rules
Isn't so easily done
And playing by them
Isn't always fun

And making your own game
Is harder than it seems
But oh how much better it is
~Than playing the drone in this one

Life's a game
To keep us entertained
Straighten your aim
And play

Yes you can
Also choose
Who you are
Who you want to be

It's not as simple
As whom you are
It's what you do
And how you play as well

And will others join
On your side
Or will they
Oppose you

~Will there be alliance
Or just defiance
Or dreadful reliance
On the players by your side

Will they betray you
Or will they aid you
Maybe there's no use in calling them
~For the chances they create

Life's a game
To keep us entertained
Calm down
And play

Just have some fun
Some happiness
It's just
A game

You may win
Or lose but play well
Or fail
At every attempt

Like I said
Before
It is
Difficult

~So then would it be all wasted
Will this game come to be hated
Wondering why someone won't change it
You can

But what are you to do
With the circumstances in front of you
To make it right or better
~Than what it is

~Though creating your own rules
Isn't so easily done
And playing by them
Isn't always fun

And making your own game
Is harder than it seems
But oh how much better it is
~Than playing the drone in this one

Life's in flames
On rough terrain
Stop worrying
And live

Make some changes
Make mistakes
But always
Try again

~If in the game you're playing
The meaning is fading
Then bend some rules and play
A different game

And if that one is useless
Or is happiness-less
It's time to bend some rules and play
~A new game
Track Name: Shyft - Crux of Your Juggernaut
Feel the fault

Guns scare people
Knives are a menace
Suicide’s unholy
War is so perfect

Give me your yesterday
And I’ll give you nothing
I want to be rid of you
Feel maybe something

Your juggernaut frightens me
No idea when I’ll go off
The top
Or the bottom again

Its steam burns our screams
Crushed bone makes a soft sound
Powder all
In the wind

THAT’S WHAT WE ARE TO YOU ALL
I’ll shake; I’ve got all night to scream
FEEL THE FAULT, FEEL THE FAULT
I’ll get you all with broken fingers

I’m so scared
to death of you
But I’m not
afraid of you

You can
chase me down
But I’ll be the one
attacking you

Master the rays of
exceeding death
Blow holes in our
prominent jest

Of your inane actions of
total destruction
But only when it suits
your construction

CRUX OF YOUR JUGGERNAUT
And I shake in silent, metaphoric whimpers
FEEL THE FAULT, FEEL THE FAULT
I’ll kill it with my broken fingers

THAT’S WHAT WE ARE TO YOU ALL
I’ll shake; I’ve got all night to scream
FEEL THE FAULT, FEEL THE FAULT
I’ll get you all with broken fingers

Feel the fault

CRUX OF YOUR JUGGERNAUT
And I shake in silent, metaphoric whimpers
FEEL THE FAULT, FEEL THE FAULT
I’ll kill it with my broken fingers

THAT’S WHAT WE ARE TO YOU ALL
I’ll shake; I’ve got all night to scream
FEEL THE FAULT, FEEL THE FAULT
I’ll get you all with broken fingers
Track Name: New
I trust in my value, do not trust any thing
I trust in my life's love, the world keeps on turning
Can't just this stay the same, reliance is worthless
Can I really be to blame, good luck placing purpose

If I can so easily throw it all away
How can I ensure my identity, that is to say
Who am I next moment when my habits flux
How can honor sustain with value corrupt


I am in love with a monster
And the monster that I see is me
I am in love with a monster
Don't deceive, the monster is me

What you value, is your fault
What is petty, can be resolved
In the forges, of change
Turn, face the new


Sacrifice your expectations of beauty to honor
for there is no greater shining path.
Do not self deceive with notions of beauty lost
for beauty is inescapable.


I want what I have lost, action enacts event
I want what is gone from me, embrace simplicity
Can't just this stay the same, reliance is worthless
Oh why tarnish my name, symbols are not purpose

If I must evolve to survive
A beautiful tragedy is left behind
If I must convert to be free
What is left of me


Kill and suffer all
Idle, rotting hole
Never fall in to
Stale patterns, forge anew
Fight the urge to dwell
Might will serve you well
Honor's all you need
To complete the deed


I am in love with a monster
And the monster that I see is me
I am in love with a monster
Don't deceive, the monster is me

What you value, is your fault
What is petty, can be resolved
In the forges, of change
Turn, face the new


Sacrifice your expectations of beauty to honor
for there is no greater shining path.
Do not self deceive with notions of beauty lost
for beauty is inescapable.

Do not fear change on principle of what you find pretty
The pretty things are petty things.
Do not self deceive with notions of beauty lost
For novelty will revitalize.


Don't wait, find it
Reach out, take it

Don't wait, find it, Reach out, take it
Don't wait, find it, Reach out, take it
Don't wait, you bastard, act right now, generate novelty
Track Name: Day (You Made It)
Look, here comes a new day
The novelty we sought
Light shines in a new way
Our honor served us well this time
What we have feared is gone
For now embrace moments
Both pretty, beautiful
Much grander than was lost before

Forged a new life from the ashes of old
Might has sure served us well
Change we feared has brought new meaning to us
Steps on a shining path
What was lost is found on a noble ground
Values that hurt cast down
Petty things are forgotten
Monsters chained down so far away

Forged a new life from the ashes of old
Might has sure served us well
Change we feared has brought new meaning to us
Steps on a shining path
What was lost is found on a noble ground
Values that hurt cast down
Petty things are forgotten
Monsters chained down so far away

If we fail it this time
What is gained is knowledge
We can always again
Serve our needs with an ease, comfort
We trust in our values to color our choices
What we have left behind
Is shadowed by perfect present

Forged a new life from the ashes of old
Might has sure served us well
Change we feared has brought new meaning to us
Steps on a shining path
What was lost is found on a noble ground
Values that hurt cast down
Petty things are forgotten
Monsters chained down so far away
Track Name: Zarkerovense
Lead me in to the dark my friend
Zarkerovense
No more need for the light, condemn
Bend it around me
Oh, Gone are the moments of fear
Zarkerovense
Let us bow to The Darkness, dear
Let it become me

I now breath smoke and ash
My skin is scales of black
My eyes but burn ing holes
My mind's rage comes

Lead me in to the dark my friend
Zarkerovense
No more need for the light, condemn
Bend it around me
Oh, Gone are the moments of fear
Zarkerovense
Let us bow to The Darkness, dear
Let it become me

My hands but jagged claws
Cracked razors fill this maw
My embrace lacerates
My kiss tears flesh away


Once I was a kind one
I was one loved
I knew not loss or death
I was naive
Surrounded by great light
As was granted
I knew not fear of dark
I was blessed

Then came the dark master
It spun its web
Around my feeble mind
Tortured my head
I fought it no one knew
Bleeding in side
Now I am comforted
Now I am free


Lead me in to the dark my friend
Zarkerovense
No more need for the light, condemn
Bend it around me
Oh, Gone are the moments of fear
Zarkerovense
Let us bow to The Darkness, dear
Let it become me

I now breath smoke and ash
My skin is scales of black
My eyes but burn ing holes
My mind's rage comes

Lead me in to the dark my friend
Zarkerovense
No more need for the light, condemn
Bend it around me
Oh, Gone are the moments of fear
Zarkerovense
Let us bow to The Darkness, dear
Let it become me

My hands but jagged claws
Cracked razors fill this maw
My embrace lacerates
My kiss tears flesh away


I am The Dark

My loved ones run from me
I am their dread
But I'm free but I'm free
The cost of fear

I will kill for the Dark
So I can be
Behind its thirsty gaze
Not underneath


Lead me in to the dark my friend
Lead me in to the dark
Lead me in to the dark my friend
Zarkerovense

Lead me in to the dark my friend
Zarkerovense
No more need for the light, condemn
Bend it around me
Oh, Gone are the moments of fear
Zarkerovense
Let us bow to The Darkness, dear
Let it become me

I now breath smoke and ash
My skin is scales of black
My eyes but burn ing holes
My mind's rage comes

Lead me in to the dark my friend
Zarkerovense
No more need for the light, condemn
Bend it around me
Oh, Gone are the moments of fear
Zarkerovense
Let us bow to The Darkness, dear
Let it become me

My hands but jagged claws
Cracked razors fill this maw
My embrace lacerates
My kiss tears flesh away

Lead me in to the dark my friend
Zarkerovense
Track Name: Storm
Our star glows red, the trees tople, dead
The air is growing thin
Feel the ground quake, structures crack and shake
Smell of decay on wind
No use boarding up your doors to hide
The storm will knock them down
No use digging, caves colapse in side
So run, it will chase you down

Hear the wind call, call your name
Whisper for your living flesh
See the dust twist up in to claws
Great fingers to snatch you up
Where could it have come from
What god could allow this
No time to ask any of this
Fool, strap your boots on, run


Here comes the storm
Like a whirlwind of darkness
It rains travesty down upon us
The shadows as a burning frozen fog
Day falls to night
And the wind, its howl can crack the bone
But the evil's worst has yet to come
Beware the core deceives, tempting calmness


Can we survive, struggle, stay alive
We see none have before
Their screams reached us, they weren't quick enough
What have these clouds in store
Acid rain fall, shards of crystal too
A haze that burns the eyes
Inhale madness, terror born anew
And he who slows down dies

Hear the wind call, call your name
Whisper for your living flesh
See the dust twist up in to claws
Great fingers to snatch you up
Where could it have come from
What god could allow this
No time to ask any of this
Fool, strap your boots on, run


Here comes the storm
Like a whirlwind of darkness
It rains travesty down upon us
The shadows as a burning frozen fog
Day falls to night
And the wind, its howl can crack the bone
But the evil's worst has yet to come
Beware the core deceives, tempting calmness
Track Name: Ozzek
Disassociate from the violence, learn to hide what you are
Disassociate, looking down on them, learn to hate what you are
Arrogance in a word is our greatest disease (balance the extremes)
But don't let theirs fuel self deceit (you've base desires too)

We are not alone

Logic is a tool, emotion's the drive, don't forget how to feel
Cognition's the structure of sentiment, show us all how you feel
Do not analyze the world when you feel empty (purpose is deceived)
And don't judge them without empathy (you make mistakes too)

Make your mind your home

We pride our selves on knowing better than this

Desire, control it, but do not shame or destroy it
The madness, don't hide it, that gives it power to consume you

Regret becoming the evil's victim, learn to hide all your scars
Disassociate from your own ego, but this is who you are
Elegance is a state that we wish to achieve (open up your mind)
But beauty is carved understanding (what else have you learned)

Curse your heart beat, scorn your dreaming, spit upon how you live
Don't forget, it's the world that made you, unless you learn how to give


Desire, control it, but do not shame or destroy it
The madness, don't hide it, that gives it power to consume you
Family, design it, because birth does not define it
Those we choose must honor, our broken majesty and our view
Desire, control it, but do not shame or destroy it
The madness, don't hide it, that gives it power to consume you
Don't give up, don't give up, out there are others just like you
Don't give up, rise up, out there are others just, just like you

Just like you
Just like you
Just like you
Just like you
Track Name: Shyft - Z3ta Whore
Why can't we move our feet
To any eclectic beat
Every god damned night
Why can't we dance all day
In a most eccentric way
It should be our right

Why, don't just stand there man
Throw your arms up when you can
Yes, you can do it too
Believe me when I say
You can frown an other day
I'm darker than you

Let the whole world go
Forget your pain and
Forget your troubles too
Let the lights guide you
On to the dance floor
Empathy without words

Let the whole world go
Forget your pain and
Forget your troubles too
Let the lights guide you
On to the dance floor
Empathy without words

Why must the balance be
Mundane against the beauty
I must face all the facts
But in the mean moments
I'll spread all nice compliments
The dance I'll enact

Why, don't just stand there man
Throw your arms up when you can
Yes, you can do it too
Believe me when I say
You can frown an other day
I'm darker than you

But here I go!

Let the whole world go
Forget your pain and
Forget your troubles too
Let the lights guide you
On to the dance floor
Empathy without words

Let the whole world go
Forget your pain and
Forget your troubles too
Let the lights guide you
On to the dance floor
Empathy without words
Track Name: On Repeat
He wakes up an empty man in the morning
And he builds a life ev ry day
But it is often the absolute same man
That leaves him empty and fake

he wakes up a broken man in the morning
He repairs a life ev ry day
Through the same detrimental numbing habits
That make him feel the same way
It's a horrid, wretched, pitiful habit
To repeat the oldest mistakes
But we all define our selves through our habits
Can we just throw us away

Want to change but habits
Are by definition
Hard to cast away
On repeat, life is but
A flicker in existence
Running out of time

She sees a famil yer face in the mirror
So she doubts what she has become
But is there really a way to turn back now
From these new habits she's won
They were horrid, wretched, pitiful habits
She repeats an other's mistakes
But that is collateral of the changing
If there's meaning in the way


Want to change but habits
Are by definition
Hard to cast away
On repeat, life is but
A flicker in existence
Running out of time

Want to change but habits
Are by definition-
Don't say it again
On repeat, break away
Here comes the change, prepare
We are losing time

He hears the song
He knows it's time
Change with the melody
She hears the notes
Her ears perk up
Her heart knows all the words

He feels so alive
Through new eyes
He steps with great courage
She feels right at home
Through new eyes
She steps, takes his hand and

Completion is not necessary
But they adore each other
Through this they shall see proof of success
Though time may keep them going
They shall never forget what they shared
And how it freed both of them
From now on he'll wake up a whole man
And she smiles in the mirror
Track Name: Shyft - Cry
Sorrow exists only in our minds
Emptiness makes us easier to fill
I admit that I see out of a narrow mind
I feel I must destroy my enemy to see my
Love stand by my side again

Every one else has failed her in the past
I wish to stand where they have fallen, to make this trust last
I did not know then, but in side her mind
She swore that she would never cry
And nor will I

As she stood and watched her brother die
She swore that she would never cry
'There are lives more wretched than mine'
And all ill things will pass in time
All great things may come undone
Enough loss can take down any one.
But now she stands strong since she can not run
She will not back down until the deed is done

I do not care about what I have left to lose
For emptiness makes us easier to fill
I admit that I can not make the best end, but I must
Destroy my worst enemy to save my best friend

There are times when I wish to just give in
And succumb to my enemy, just let that bitch win
I have felt my worst, like I can not surivive
She swore that she would never cry
And nor will I

As she stood and watched her brother die
She swore that she would never cry
'There are lives more wretched than mine'
And all ill things will pass in time
All great things may come undone
Enough loss can take down any one.
But now she stands strong since she can not run
She will not back down until the deed is done

I felt less and paid with half of my mind
We have both split and built the other kind
There are lives more wretched than mine
But I fear more ill things are growing inside
This great world has come undone
I carry the only key to save every one
Now I will fight to the end, I will not run
I will stand by her until our love has won

I will try to find the strength inside my mind
She swore that she would never cry
And nor will I

She stood and watched her brother die
She swore that she would never cry
'There are lives more wretched than mine'
And all ill things will pass in time
All great things may come undone
Enough loss can take down any one.
But now she stands strong since she can not run
She will not back down until the deed is done

I felt less and paid with half of my mind
We have both split and built the other kind
There are lives more wretched than mine
But I fear more ill things are growing inside
This great world has come undone
I carry the only key to save every one
Now I will fight to the end, I will not run
I will stand by her until our love has won

I can sense the sadness in your eyes
But, darling, this is not your kind of life
Track Name: Birg Fore
Curse them all, the fools who deny
Truth and lies, what's before their empty eyes (open them)
Curse them all, the bastards who lie
But they're not at fault, we close our own minds

You can wire their opinions, but you won't get that shit from me
You can burn your constitution, but I will never quit, break free

All to ash, all these dreams of mine
Truth in kind, what's honor when there's divine? (no god is)
All to ash, freedom of our kind
No god is at fault, we close our own minds

They will cower down before you, why don't you make their tired eyes see
You can burn all of their money, but value lives on in the deed

You can wire their opinions, but you won't get that shit from me
You can burn your constitution, but I will never quit, break free

Why try to blind your eyes (Open them, open them)
All your life
Forget comfort, all is excitement now
Turn, face the new

Curse the groove that we've resigned to
Curse the drive that is quite far beyond you
All to ash, those bold chosen few
All to ashes, the life that we knew

They will cower down before you, why don't you make their tired eyes see
You can burn all of their money, but value lives on in the deed

You can wire their opinions, but you won't get that shit from me
You can burn your constitution, but I will never quit, break free

Why try to blind your eyes (Open them, open them)
All your life
Forget comfort, all is excitement now
Turn, face the new

Why try to blind your eyes (Open them, open them)
All your life
Forget comfort, all is excitement now
Turn, face the new

He told the dirty girl
That he loved her
He wished that she would be
Free From Harm

She said she understood
And she did
But she would never be free
From filth

Why do you not sleep at night?
Why do you feel pain?
Where is the end of the road for you?
And why was your favorite path slain?

EAT YOUR SORROW TO SILENCE IT
BUT IT WILL ONLY BREED INSIDE OF YOU
SWALLOW YOUR LOST DREAMS BEFORE YOUR PAIN DOES BECAUSE
THEN YOUR FAILURE CAN START ANEW

He told the lost little girl
Not to be afraid
He wished that he could be the one
To free her

She said she realized
He could save her from this tormented world but
She just could not
put down the filth

Why do you run from the sunlight?
And why is there no flame (inside)?
What would lie at the end of the road if
You chose your own way?

EAT YOUR SORROW TO SILENCE IT
BUT IT WILL ONLY BREED INSIDE OF YOU
SWALLOW YOUR LOST DREAMS BEFORE YOUR PAIN DOES BECAUSE

PEOPLE YOU FOLLOW ALWAYS LAG BEHIND
DIGGING FOR GOLD, THE DIRT THEY FIND
FLEEING FALSE REALITY FOR JUST ONE SINGLE TIME
Could save your whole life.
Track Name: Cut Grind Burn Dig
I don't need you to remind me of the flaws
That I grew out of one by one and learned from
You make me sick, judging me as if
I am the boy I was before I became my self

I try so hard to be transparent
If you deny this favor, I'll deny you

I do what I say and speak my mind
Isn't that enough for you
I seal my own fate with every word
Isn't that enough for you

You must know what your words mean
How can you dare to speaketh them
You fight for only comfort
Wake from your dream imprisonment

I don't claim to understand every last cause
Of what makes you feel the way that you do
But when you ask of me my advice
Do not then spit upon my every idea

I try to learn from my mistakes
So others need not pity a fool
Why don't you

How can you deny the philosophical implications of our lives
Would you be prepared for a time when a demon can erase Universe's mind

I'm just acting me but where are you
I must fight to see
Cut grind burn dig deep in to your psyche
Just so I can see

You must know what your words mean
How can you dare to speaketh them
You fight for only comfort
Wake from your dream imprisonment

Your pain you project on me
See what you're doing to your self
See beyond your cyclic thoughts
Expose your self, come take my hand

Track Name: The One Who Would
Why should I trust one more human
Have I not learned, may be I will learn better this time
This desire always gets in the way
Of all other priorities

Must I have love, else I'll go mad
Is this a bad habit that I have fallen in to
Either way love has broken me down
I am afraid of you my dear


Yet I wish I could promise...

I will see you through all of the darkness to the
Day beyond this world where we can be free

Take my hand and I'll cast away the pain
Smite those who misunderstand, hold you til the day I die

Dear, I can't give you all of those things, I'm sorry
Though my love is true, I am just a man


For you I wish to sacrifice
I don't want any one to have that kind of power
Over me, over my state of mind
But which pain is desired less

Want to give you every thing
How can I know there's any thing behind your smile
It must mean some thing if you do not
Make me happy out of your will

I wish I could promise...

I will see you through all of the darkness to the
Day beyond this world where we can be free

Take my hand and I'll cast away the pain
Smite those who misunderstand, hold you til the day I die

Dear, I can't give you all of those things, I'm sorry
Though my love is true, I am just a man

I feel all those things they've blamed on the heart
It is raw, misunderstood, but a perfect place for us to start

Do you mean to make me happy or is this just a dream I've concocted
Could your eyes speak love to any one while your mind remains cold, I fear all this

I... want to fight it
I... want to throw away all this skepticism for you
But you've got to do it too
But you've got to do it too

Feed the doubt, play it safe, you know it all too well
What's it worth, a love that is practically doomed to fail
After all trust is just a form of control
Truth be told, we are fools for even stooping this low

(No...) Just as how the unexamined life is not worth living
So too it is true for the life that is not shared
Where is the love in a world without forgiving
Is hesitation proof of conflict or care

Doubt is a sign of fear, why should true love be tamed
Fear is response to danger, if our condition remains unchanged
We have learned to distrust, now it's time to unlearn that tragedy
It is you I choose

I may not save you from the dark, my love
But I will make light among the shadows
I may not have strength to break these chains, love
But here with me you can be you

Come take my hand and I'll make you forget your pain
Fend off the fools, hold you as long as I can
Track Name: Shyft - Right
My insanity
Is mocking me
My deception
Is my eyes

I'm blinded by the
Insecurity
That is
Me

My terror
Charges ten fold
Every time
I call love's name

I grab at love
And grip it
But my grip's too hard
And it strangles and chokes

I'm falling into the pit of the void of my pain
I'm drowning in the fire of destruction of my life
I'm falling into the pit of the void of my pain
But I won't give up so easily

Burning cinder
Fury of
Crimson chaos
Fire

Is all that I see
All I feel
All right
That's a lie

MY LIFE ISN'T
AS HARD AS I
MAKE IT OUT
TO BE

But it is
Just so hard

To me

I'm falling into the pit of the void of my pain
I'm drowning in the fire of destruction of my life
I'm falling into the pit of the void of my pain
But I won't give up so easily

Is any of this
Ever worth it
Am I making
Myself clear

And if I am
Does anyone listen
And if they do
Do they hear

I am my fear
As it jeers
I am my fear
As it cheers

I feel humanity
Is stalking me
Laughing at
My cries

I'm falling into the pit of the void of my pain
And nothing else remains
What does is really lost to me
Should I just give up?

NEVER NO NOT EVER FOR THEN THEY'LL HAVE WON
MY PAIN AND FEARS AND AGONY The things that I shun
Life drive sweet clarity undying purity
There is no pit there is no pain I am free

I'm falling into the pit of the void of my pain
I'm drowning in the fire of destruction of my life
I'm falling into the pit of the void of my pain
But I won't give up so easily

I'm falling into the pit of the void of my pain
I'm drowning in the fire of destruction of my life
I'm falling into the pit of the void of my pain
Giving up's an option I reject
Track Name: Secto
Omisousius was too small for him, he yearned for some thing more
It was as though he could see beyond Dor to all of Universe
He was taught by an outcast of a Knight to find meaning deep in side
And though Agnavas taught him well, he followed on a twisted ride

To hesitate not, to discard old friends, cast aside family colors
To adopt violence, take on black, silver, skeptic turned cynic to the very end
Those not at his side were merely obstacles for him to conquer

'Hate is safe, search for knowledge is the one way to redeem my impurity'
Obsessed, digression impossible, don't ask him to obey any thing else- Secto

He declares, as was said once before
'Search for knowledge is the greatest good
Oh, as such there is no lesser loss
than sacrifice for all understood'
He believes, as all philosophers
That true wisdom is hardest to find
So one must be truest to the self
To lift dark from the edge of your mind

Fight against all odds, is that not heroic, strive to be pure, reach for the truth
Make sacrifice when, the greater good is at stake, is that not noble, of the few

He called upon the outcasts, the broken, made his team of four
It was as though he could hear the words of forgotten lore
He had been loved by his enemies but never felt the shame
Of betrayal, of broken promise, of renouncing his name
He spent his life, a madness, dedicated to sifting through The Frame
For answers to all questions, but those that would burden him with blame
Wiyinndfor, the one who loved him, she was just his pawn
Though his team would die for him, in his mind he was just one strong

Vos Eroshim Valektyntez was never the name of a god
To be the best is to beat the rest, so why should one empathize
Those not at his side were merely obstacles for him to conquer

'Hate is safe, search for knowledge is the one way to redeem my impurity'
Obsessed, digression impossible, don't ask him to obey any thing else- Secto

He declares, as was said once before
'Search for knowledge is the greatest good
Oh, as such there is no lesser loss
than sacrifice for all understood'
He believes, as all philosophers
That true wisdom is hardest to find
So one must be truest to the self
To lift dark from the edge of your mind

And true wisdom is his to find
Before all others of his kind
The gods are dreadful, uninclined
To lift dark from the edge of their minds

Fight against all odds, is that not heroic, strive to be pure, reach for the truth
Make sacrifice when, the greater good is at stake, is that not noble, of the few

Curse the edge of mind again
Sloppy is the frame
Press the edge of all moments
Curse the edge of mind again
There is just no time
Press the edge of all moments

He declares, as was said once before
'Search for knowledge is the greatest good
Oh, as such there is no lesser loss
than sacrifice for all understood'
He believes, as all philosophers
That true wisdom is hardest to find
So one must be truest to the self
To lift dark from the edge of your mind

Curse the edge of mind again
Sloppy is the frame
Press the edge of all moments
Curse the edge of mind again
There is just no time
Press the edge of all moments

He declares, as was said once before
'Search for knowledge is the greatest good
Oh, as such there is no lesser loss
than sacrifice for all understood'
He believes, as all philosophers
That true wisdom is hardest to find
So one must be truest to the self
To lift dark from the edge of your mind

And true wisdom is his to find
Before all others of his kind
The gods are dreadful, uninclined
To lift dark from the edge of their minds

And true wisdom is his to find
Before all others of his kind
He will be the god in due time
