Torrential Rain's "Differentiate"

December 22, 2021

Die Band hat in den letzen zwei Jahren durchaus ihr Talent bewiesen, aber mit diesem Jahresabschluss hätte wohl kaum einer gerechnet.

Seit Anfang 2020 veröffentlichte die Band bis heute, Quartal für Quartal, eine Single nach der anderen. Neben einer Millionen Streams (Over all) festigte sich TORRENTIAL RAIN den Platz in mehreren Editorial Playlists. Nach 'TIME WILL TELL', 'WHY DO I CARE' und 'OBSTACLES' steht der versprochene vierte Release jetzt auch schon in mehreren Playlists.

Songwriter Christopher Danner gibt einen Einblick: "In der gesamten Zeit, in der wir jetzt Singles gemacht haben, konnten wir die verschiedensten Stile miteinfließen lassen, um zu sehen, was gefällt uns und was funktioniert. Ich glaube, es ist am allerbesten ein Jahr aufzuhören mit einem Song der ordentlich reinhaut.[...]"

Lyrics:

Holding on to words
Clinging on to thoughts
Trusting vows once made
Love or hate I can't differentiate
I can't differentiate

Holding on to words
Clinging on to thoughts
Trusting vows once made
Love or hate I can't differentiate
I can't differentiate

Love or hate

Take me down
Into the depths I've sworn myself to never see
I've gotten used to second guessing being part of me
Taking my time before
Faking the image of a
Person that's got everything under control

But there's a feeling deep inside of me
I'm not the man that I once claimed to be

Holding on to words
Clinging on to thoughts
Trusting vows once made
Love or hate I can't differentiate
I can't differentiate

But how did I end up in here?
A burnt out mess at the end of a year
At the end of a year

I didn't listen to myself and everyone around me
Trying to adhere to what influenced me profoundly
Casting out the hated deadweights
That are residing inside of me

Staring into my soul
I never thought I would feel so cold
Hating just what I see
I never thought I would want to be

Isolated from what makes me
Hold on through misery
Time I wasted without facing
It might not set me free

Holding on to words
Clinging on to thoughts
Trusting vows once made
Love or hate I can't differentiate
I can't differentiate

Love or hate

I feel my own ambition breathe down my neck
Always trying to elevate myself into greater heights
Yet it only leaves me feeling like a total wreck
And lying awake through most of my nights

The flame is fading out in me
Why won't someone stop me from eating up myself?

Break me down and take what you need
Take what you need
I've fallen victim to my very own greed

Holding on to words
Clinging on to thoughts
Trusting vows once made
Love or hate I can't differentiate
I can't differentiate

Holding on to words
Clinging on to words
Trusting vows once made
Love or hate I can't differentiate
