“The Rain” is part 1 of a 3 part video series based around mental health, substance abuse, and addiction. The goal is to show the depths of how bad it can really get for people.

There are so many ways one person’s struggle can ripple through their loved one’s lives.

The song itself is about seeing someone for whom you care deeply falling into a cycle of destruction. One can offer guidance, but must learn that we all must save ourselves; “you gotta help me help you”. It is also acknowledging one’s own demons, “I’ll have you know, I’m a mess.” And how trying to save someone else from “drowning in the rain” can pull you underwater just as quickly.
