"It's Clear Up Here" - The first single off our upcoming EP, "Traditionalist."


Conjecture runs rampantly around.
I feel it's presence,
I hear the sounds.
Try if you must,
Try if you will.
It must be so hard to swallow that pill.

Resting on your laurels will get you no where fast.
It's just so hard to progress,
If you sit and watch the world fly past.
Let's just put this in context,
Let's set the record straight,
We'll all rot in the ground,
So make the most of today.

The door was still open,
But I have slammed it shut.
I'm free from confusion,
Been lifted from this rut.
My vision gains focus,
Become so clear to see.
Success is in my grasp,
And there's no stopping me.

The sting has faded,
Thoughts have left,
Usher in an era,
Safe from old regrets.

Usher in,
Usher in,
A new era.
A new era safe from old regrets.

Decisions have been made,
My actions have been felt,
And now I'm sure of mind,
And I am sure of self.
The blood has washed away,
And i'll admit to that.
I'll put my best foot forward,
And theres no turning back.

He who hesitates is lost,
Lost into eternity.
I'll tell you one thing,
It wont fucking be me.

It's not fucking me.
