HIGHER, THE GREATEST HIP HOP SONG OF ALL TIME
HIGHER, by the Hilltop Hoods is a song I hold dear to me. It came into my life when I was lost and was breaking away from the life I had always known to something new and more inspiring. The song and lyrics uplift me and still affect me positively even when I play it now. It's positive energy coming out of that song.
It is the greatest Hip Hop song of all time and the greatest song of the last decade.
(feat. James Chatburn)
Life tempo unsustainable Try and end all war, my days are full Tired ankles till I can't escape it all A dying hope of the unattainable Drivin' this road's like lucid dreamin' Sleep through the daytime, fly through the evening If I don't dream and give life to my demons Then please don't wake me, I'll die while I'm sleepin' Man I swore I never been here before This tour's like a storm, blew me up on the shore Don't know if I'm coming or going or who's runnin' this show And whether it's curtains or encore And everyday I spend, space and dimension Feelin' like I snap so free from the tension Breaking the connection, chasing my redemption Looking in the wrong place for perfection I brought a piece of the road into the peace of our home You the cornerstone of every bit of peace that I've known But this fever to roam, I can't leave it alone It claws at my flesh and it's deep in my bones The music brought me back to life But it was you that bought the sacrifice Lost time, lost sleep, lost point of view Lost I, lost me, lost all but you [James Chatburn:] If we go higher Tryna take the clouds Ooo-ooo-ooo-oo Lost in the nether Only way is down Ooo-ooo-ooo-oo Still we go higher Tryna sate this thirst Ooo-ooo-ooo-oo Till we fly into the sun And fall in flames to Earth Earth, Earth Ooo-ooo-oo Higher Higher Higher Ooooh She used to say You make me wanna run to you I'm so proud of your accomplishments Looked at me like I had hung the moon Now she looks at me like I'm blockin' it Cause when you're deep on a tour, no rest Not feeling human, like you failed the Turing test She don't want you to bounce too soon man I feel like Andy Kaufman, the Man on the Moon, and When I'm feelin' half-human I'm still hard to kill like Vents and Rasputin And when life get to bootin' You gotta hit 'em with the fire, Street Fighter, Hadouken Twenty-four-seven ride the clouds on a seven-four-seven Like how? Damn I've never felt more pleasant then I have right now Shook to life by the landing gear Inflight radio playin' Chandelier Now I'm standin' here with no standing room Waiting on an old man to grab a bag or two Then he tipped his hat and asked what I do I said 'dude this is what I do' And I'mma be consumed by all this so called fun I'mma burn up soon tryna touch the sun [James Chatburn:] If we go higher Tryna take the clouds Ooo-ooo-ooo-oo Lost in the nether Only way is down Ooo-ooo-ooo-oo Still we go higher Tryna sate this thirst Ooo-ooo-ooo-oo Till we fly into the sun And fall in flames to Earth Earth, Earth Ooo-ooo-oo Higher Higher Higher Ooooh Higher Higher Higher Ooooh
