Let me set the scene for you,
We’re standing by the fence,
Eyes fixed on the distance now,
As things are getting tense,

“I reckon we can make it
Just keep an open mind”
Try and go along with it,
And don’t get left behind

You can’t burn-out just because,
Things are going right for once,
But I’ve a feeling that you will

Some of us are eager,
Others not so much,
Some are shelved into the past,
While others keep in touch

Fast forward to a different time,
things are making sense,
Rules that we had broken then,
Are rules that we can mend

Here goes nothing,
To The Clearing,
You’ll need your courage again today

I know it's long,
I know it's rough,
They'll chase us down,
But we won't give up
And we'll sleep easy


from The Clearing, released April 29, 2016
