“The Difference” by Flume (ft. Toro y Moi)

The lyrics of Flume’s “The Difference” are very nonspecific. But reading in between the lines, it seems as if the vocalist is emitting an ideology of living a sort of carefree life. But that is not to imply that he is not goal-oriented. Instead, he comes off as the type who wants to accomplish things, and said carefreeness will be in regards to not letting others who don’t share that vision distract him. And even though the titular term is not found in the lyrics, presumably that would be “the difference” between him and some associates, as implied in the pre-chorus, i.e. the vocalist’s insistence to make something out of his life.
