"Power Shift" as written by and Robin Joergen Sebastian/johansson Sjunnesson....
I really doubt this is the right side of the force
You better grab onto some hope
Cause you are going to need it as we go
Keep on fighting ignorance with even more ignorance
You'll see that sometimes the hand of fate must be forced

And we are under the gun
A bullet with our name on
Don't know where to run
Just see a dead end

And we are under the gun
A bullet with our name on
Don't know where to run
Just see a dead end

Let's sing to the anthem of the last days
There's no turning back
Let's sing together now for the last time (for the last time)

There won't be any revolution
If we don't use our gift
Whe have to come to a conclusion
A power shift

How many times did god fall asleep on the job?
I do find a lot of errors in his blueprints
Humanity being the biggest flaw
Like an inverted King Midas
We turn everything we touch to shit

And we are under the gun
A bullet with our name on
Don't know where to run
Just see a dead end

And we are under the gun
A bullet with our name on
Don't know where to run
Just see a dead end

Let's sing to the anthem of the last days
There's no turning back
Let's sing together now for the last time (for the last time)

There won't be any revolution
If we don't use our gift
Whe have to come to a conclusion
A power shift

I cannot see how my own world turned alien to me
Release me from these shackles
And I'll be the first to cross the line
Will it be diffrent on the other side?

There won't be any revolution
If we don't use our gift
Whe have to come to a conclusion
A power shift

There won't be any revolution
If we don't use our gift
Whe have to come to a conclusion
A power shift

    My Opinioni think this song, or at least part of it is about how everything we as humans do we cause damage to everything else.They are singing about how this world is coming to an end due to the flaws of man and theres needs to be a change in who leads us to reverse it before its too late.

    By the way does this band have any religious background at all? i Know they swear and all but that doesnt nessescarily mean theyre not christian, im very christian and i swear alot!!!

    General Commentexactly, at first glance lots of these songs seem satanic (particularly in eden fire) but the guy who writes them all says himself that the album isnt going to be some satanic bullshit. Its going to have deeper meaning from his deepest emotions. maybe hes making religious reference to what is to come from the opposite point of view (the evil) but not necessarily making them the favored ones.
