  • Lyrics
  • Vocalist Mark Wystrach told Billboard the intention for this uplifting song is to put a smile on listeners' faces.

    "That's about changing your elevation, and essentially your state of mind," he explained. "Any way you want to interpret it, you can."

    "It's definitely tongue in cheek," Wystrach continued. "It references John Denver because if you want to feel good, put on a John Denver album. If you want to cleanse and lose some of the weariness of the road, head out to the Rockies and get some fresh air. Go out there fishing, or swimming, or go listen to music and have a good time. 'Altitude Adjustment' is about just wanting to get away from the bulls--t - whatever that is. There's a reason that people take vacations. They need to change their scenery."
