The balance
The path is made
Nothing standing in my way
Indifferent, but turning gray
Over the fragile ground we laid

It may be calm for now
Oh, but somewhere else...

It's raining down
Under the promise of a dark and heartless sky
Raining now
We know the flood is coming
Don't close your eyes

The solace
The serenade
Every season in its place
The shelter
The only name holding misery at bay

It may be calm for now
Oh, but somewhere else...

It's raining down
Under the promise of a dark and heartless sky
Raining now
We know the flood is coming
Don't close your eyes

Raining down
Under the promise of a dark and heartless sky
Raining now
We know the flood is coming
Don't close your eyes

Raining down
Under the promise of a dark a heartless sky
Raining now
We know the flood is coming
Don't close your eyes

    Ryan Clark:
    “When the sun is shining in our own lives, it’s important to remember that it’s raining down upon someone else.

    It can be difficult to truly see outside yourself – especially when everything seems to be coming up roses. When we suffer, we expect the world to stop and suffer with us… But when we’re basking in the glow of good fortune, we’re often blind to those whose lives are in turmoil. This song is a reminder, to myself as much as anyone else, to be mindful at all times of the difficulties others face.

    I wrote the lyrics to this chorus while we were on tour in Europe in 2010. I’ve been anxious to use them ever since. Originally, the melody was much different and I intended on using them in a slower, more melancholy tune."
