about

A stew of Martin Luther King, The Pledge of Allegiance, electronic drums, distorted vocals, crunchy guitars,80’s synths and Beatle harmonies.

lyrics

Humbled by his lack of faith
The hippie turns and slinks away
From everything he had to say
when things were going good.

Change is like a bloody vein
The sunshine on a winter day
He sees the truth but he won’t pay
With alligator arms.
Throwing rocks at what he hates
Don’t change the fact that nothing’s getting done.

I pledge allegiance to the flag
Of the United States of America
And to the republic for which it stands
One nation under God
Indivisible
With liberty and justice for all.

Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na nothings clear

It’s not a test it’s Happening Today
Really really Happening Today
It’s not a test it’s Happening Today

Ancient men and modern times
And fluid facts and blurry lines
And outrage at the apathy
Makes everyone feel fine
Throwing rocks at what we hate
Makes it seem like there's no real good guys.

I have a dream that one day
This nation will rise up
And live out the true meaning of it’s creed

Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na now is here
It’s not a test it’s Happening Today
Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na nothings clear

This is really Happening Today
It’s not a test it’s Happening Today
It’s really really Happening Today

It’s not a test it’s Happening Today
It’s really really Happening Today

Na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na nothings clear

It’s not a test it’s Happening Today
It’s really really Happening Today
It’s not a test it’s Happening Today
It’s really really Happening Today

about

Strangely Alright Seattle, Washington

Strangely Alright are sonic time-travelers. They paint paisley patterned pictures that shimmer with the 60’s mercurial blend of darkness and innocence, they mesh psychedelia and pop melodies together, they run rock muscle through the most danceable of tunes and they are the perfect blend of past and present. ... more
