Fifty Year Storm are masters of rock. Their music is often raw with emotion, and “Rain on Fire” is no exception. The tune starts off as a dark and twisted love song about a romance that doesn’t feel quite right. Through the course of the track Fifty Year Storm combines multiple musical elements that include soft plucks of a guitar and the use of a violin to convey their message: confront your demons before falling in love. The song takes the realization that a person you love is incapable of being saved and uses it as motivation to end a toxic relationship. However, just when you think that the song can be classified as a breakup ballad the lyrics take you for one more emotional ride. 

Despite the song conveying a sense of liberation from a harmful romance, the last few lyrics give way to truth. “I don’t want you to stay away,” the song sings, almost begrudgingly. That one shocking admission changes the entire tone of the track. It implies that there’s more than just indignation in this broken relationship, and that despite the anger the singer feels the pain of losing someone close to them. “There’s no one else like me for you”, the lyrics sing. “And there’s no one else like me too.”
