Onward to Olympas will be releasing their new album Indicator next Tuesday, October 9. Today they have released a second single from the album, along with a lyric video for the song.

“The lyrics to this song touch on getting serious about finding a truth to hold onto. There are times when I feel like all my struggles just run circles around me, but you have to leave your past behind and know that God has a plan for your life.” – Kramer Lowe, OTO
