Higher Ground

Imagine Dragons

I know when my day will come
Go back to the place that I came from
Looking back, will I think that I did it right?
I still don't sleep at night
I got these symphonies stuck in my head
And they don't leave
Filling up the silence with these notes
I don't want them to go

Ghosts follow me around these days
Haunting my head and house
My mind is crazy loud
But I won't give in to it
Take it all in stride

This life is such a ride
I live until I die
I walk into the fire
I'm searching for the higher ground

What a life
I live until I die
Won't fail unless I try
I'm searching for the higher ground

I've got that golden gun
I was born as the seventh son
Everything comes with conditions
Everyone's got their dirty dishes
I've got these memories
Stuck in my head, and they won't leave
Filling up my treetops with these crows
I wish that they would go

This life is such a ride
I live until I die
I walk into the fire
I'm searching for the higher ground

What a life
I live until I die
Won't fail unless I try
I'm searching for the higher—

This life is such a ride
I live until I die
I walk into the fire
I'm searching for the higher ground

What a life
I live until I die
Won't fail unless I try
I'm searching for the higher ground

Get it, got it, want it
Tell me what to do and I'm on it
I am the witness, the genesis, the reason
Get it, got it, want it
Tell me what to do and I'm on it
I am the witness, the witness, the witness (the witness, the witness)

This life is such a ride
I live until I die
I walk into the fire
I'm searching for the higher ground

What a life
I live until I die
Won't fail unless I try
Bleeding, keep on breathing

Higher ground
(Hey, hey)
Higher, higher
Higher, higher ground

Higher ground
(Hey, hey)
Higher, higher
Higher, higher ground
