"Through The Water" begins with an undeniably passionate piano, conveyed with each keystroke. The instrument conducts emotions and leaves listeners captivated. This enchanting melody lingers for a brief yet evocative twenty seconds, creating an almost-cinematic moment where time slows, reminding us that life is not about the breaths we take but the moments that take our breath away.

"Falling, in my own sin. Can you hear me calling on your name?"

Alanzo's voice emerges from the calm of the keynotes. It resonates as if a celestial being has graced the air. His voice, chilled and emotive, echoes an emotional plea: "Falling, in my own sin. Can you hear me calling on your name?" It's a cry for deliverance amid personal turmoil. He acknowledges the redemptive power in his religious beliefs. The artist describes water as a symbol for his transformative plunge into salvation. The emotional depth of the single intensifies with each new delivery of the chorus.

A pause follows, pregnant with meaning. Harmonizing with a deep bass, Syl Carter demonstrates his lyrical mastery. His words weave a tale of aimless days and a struggle in the darkness with blinded eyes. He rhythmically expresses his disarrayed emotions, feeling out of place and seeking clarity. Admitting that appetite led to addiction, he sings, "All the vices that I am fighting, then I heard a voice giving life in me." Amidst the chaos of battling his personal demons, his revelation resonates deeply.

"All the vices that I am fighting, then I heard a voice giving life in me."

"Through The Water" is a moving journey told through song. It captures feelings of tough times and the process of finding strength in difficult moments. Syl Carter and Alanzo skillfully blend words and melodies to create something beyond just music; "Through The Water" embodies life's struggles and victories.
