"The Drought" as written by and Justin Wayne Ringle....
Unruly type of sun, willing to spare no one
From the plains up to the peaks
This heat's stealing faith from the weak

Amidst the burning breeze
From the ground up through the trees
I hear the birds complain about the lack of the rain

And it's not the same life
Here the morning's like a knife
And the river's been bone dry
Where the day is not fond of light.

Glory to the night
Shade has been hard to find
From the plains up to the peaks
This heat's stealing faith from the weak

Amidst the burning breeze
From the ground up through the trees
I hear the birds complain about the lack of the rain

It's bearing down on me
No clouds in the sky
I hear the pines crack and cry
"There's no reason to try."

And it's not the same life
Here the morning's like a knife
And the river's been bone dry
Where the day is not fond of light.

It's bearing down on me
No clouds in the sky
I hear the pines crack and cry

    General CommentThis a beautiful song. I think it's about depression, but that's just me.

    General CommentIt's most definitely about a mental illness, such as depression, anxiety, or a severe bi-polar disorder, but I also think it can be thought of in another light as well.

    After studying the song for quite some time, I honestly feel that it's about taking on the trials that we face in life head on, and that the narrator is saying that it has really taken a toll on him, and though everything is saying give up and turn around, it sounds as though he's still pushing on.

    The biggest example is the chorus of the song, in which the song becomes upbeat, with a speedy tempo and an almost hopeful sounding tone to accompany, which makes me truly believe that the narrator, though he's singing negative lyrics, is really pushing to try and find the positive in that moment as well.

    Just my two cents.
