"The Shifter" as written by Peter Wilhard Ingvar Dolving, Anders Martin Bjoerler, Jonas Fredrik Bjoerler, Per Moeller Jensen and Patrik Jensen....
Generic, symbolic bullshit
Simplified, cliché rehash
It's all streamlined, adjusted to match
Pimped-up junk rides and a minimum life span

Consider a truth (and you hate it)
It's all just a game to you (so you lose)
I'll give you a clue (a foul taste to prove)
If you do what they pay you to do - What are you?

A common thief should feel more pride than you

Washed out, dumbed down crash site
No brain conceptional straight faced lies
An army of well-dressed mannequins
House-broke clones without a clue as to why and what for...

The harder you fight it (the more your lose)
Because it's all right there (in the fine print)
Never mind how you go about it
The sad truth; it's just a part of the process...

A common thief should left more pride than you

Move - Move the goods
Push - Keep pushing the product

    General CommentI think that this song is about the shit state of capitalism and the consumer system. it's all lies and propaganda and the clothes and models part of it is ruining so many people lives. I think this song is a great big "Fuck you" to this particular system.
