In this night that highlights dawn,
I stay dormant for I have feared this moment,
I have feared that this time would come.
This is the time someone must silence your voice.
Vengeful and fierce are the thoughts that I bear with me.
The last strain of hope is gone.
I am calculating the risk and I am ready for desperate measures now.

Thrown into the lion pit; a fight of life.
I failed you all and I am too afraid
to become a slave to the base of urges,
but a situation like this requires concessions.
I will not allow someone like you to destroy what we have.
I do not want to be like you but I have no choice; you leave me no choice.
In my eyes, clashing views on everything I am.

I take a closer look to see there are only illusions.
Everything that defined me all I believed has been withdrawn.
Reality tears apart itself, now tell me that this is not a matter of life and death.

This is a matter of life and death.

This is my consciousness, my ego, my self-sabotage.
This is indispensable.
This is what my feelings sound like.

I am more afraid of the ones that obey than of the disease itself.
See the signs of this emergence and raise the awareness,
it's time to be resistant.
I find so many reasons to why you should be extinct,
so many reasons yet no one will win,
so I will fight this fight for one last night.

Fuse together with my painful strife to be under the knife.
As I flex the joints of this hand you might find that you don't stand a chance.
Prepare for impact.
Let the darkness commence and this is where it ends.

    General Comment‘All These Feelings’ is a premonition of the “fight of life” between two Derangers : MÃ¥sstaden has decided that “someone must silence your voice”, no matter what the cost. The repetition of the phrase “This is a matter of life and death!” conveys the sincerity of the threat they (and we, in the real world) and facing. In fact, it seems that this song is a rallying cry, a plea to the population of the earth to confront the force of globalisation and eradicate its evils. It depicts "the ominous force of war", which is in essence a war against all evil. The verse at 3:12, for example, calls upon us, as human beings, to take responsibility for bringing this evil to justice: “See the signs of this emergence and raise the awareness. It’s time to be resistant… so many reasons why you should be extinct… I will fight this fight for one last night.” They fear the spread of this plague, that it will infect their people: “I am more afraid of the ones that obey than of the disease itself.” Action must be taken. Battle is declared. The inhabitants are restless and frightened, uncertain of what will become of their city; yet some speak of victory, and inspire with tales of the past. This is the feeling recieved in this track from 5:40: the reminiscence in the ambiences and clean guitar, coupled with the strident guitar melody gives a real sense of hope.…
