tried to tell myself but it was too late too late to take this out but don't you see how flat it could be? they're just trying to keep it up but I'm not sure why I had too long to learn my lesson but who the hell is the teacher? I guess that's the question, right? sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la if we ever get the hell out of here if we ever learn a single thing if there's ever some things to learn, tell me I'm always up to learn something new now if we ever get the hell out of here I GUESS I NEVER LEARN, GUESS I NEVER LEARN but you never know I guess I should have tried some more yeah, got a nice a little story to show you today yeah, you'll never know the truth is so hard to bare but now I have run out of patience it's time to sell it! yeah but the price is too high but I never really know how much it feels to you blah blah blah but! guess this is the part of the story where there's no real ending I guess you like those kinds of things where nothing ever ends, and I know why it's a round table without (set on) the head of a person's lies sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la if we ever get the hell out of here the point of entry was missed by the start of this day there's nothing, no there's nothing I guess I never really learned a thing all those useless hours spents in classes (something that never mattered I guess it's just another reminder of the frail trying to find a light that isn't there) you're so clueless, oh you're so clueless you're so clueless, oh, you're so, so, so-so I guess it's in the middle where you are nothing to shoulder, and you're nothing at all wait for next year my friend

Giving myself up back then seemed so much easier to swallow whole But I think about the times I wouldn't reach out to anyone but my single self detached imagination oh, I think about the simple degenerations but I would reach out to anyone but you anyone who had an interest but I don't blame myself for you or anyone at all because it wasn't meant to be and nothing would change that for you or me for you or me, no. nothing could change that either way looking around, thinking about what's been going down to your reflect-tations of simple desires that were never fulfilled and what do you want from this? what do you want from this? cause nothing ever seemed to matter to you, to you, to you nothing seemed to matter at all but I think about all the times that we spent alone running, waiting for a moment to end even though there are only five minutes left to really grasp those changes that we have forsaken for a better life i left it then so what do you want now? cause I can't decide anymore for, anymore for you it's over.

about

The year is 2014 A.D.!

In the ever approaching non-existent deadline that I have for completing How Scandinavian's 2nd album and 6th EP, I felt that I had to release SOMETHING that vaguely demonstrated the new prowess of a new recording setup and the current live incarnation of the band.

This was pretty much the only way without rushing out the upcoming new EP set for summer release.

So enter "The Educator". Written in about two days, and recorded and mixed in one. Taught to the band for live performance just a week before said performance. It's a child of spontaneity.

Throw in two live takes of a jazz-influenced number and an old 'Dolorous' deep cut and what more could you ask for in a single? At least one that has nothing to do with where HS currently is attempting to go. Not that it's bad or anything to throwback once in a while.

So here is "The Educator", part past and part future. Don't forget to thank your teachers for where they put you in, or made you avoid being in. Whatever.

We have a music video for this one: youtu.be/Z10MAF-ZtYM
