When I came down the dawn poured into me
I shook'em up, the walls came crumbling
My fists kept trembling with these salty wounds
My stolen gold inside the emperors tomb

Now painting rainbows on my ugly face
I built this cardboard neighborhood's disgrace
But I ascend and serve my feverish need
Within the confines of such chemistry

It's the way I see
Everything I need
It's no way to be

Let this be our little secret
No one needs to know were feeling
(Higher and higher and higher)
(Higher and higher and higher)

But I feel alive and I feel it in me
Up and up I keep on climbing
(Higher and higher and higher)
(Higher and higher and higher)

My face blew up at such a casual sight
The smattered colors of ecstatic fright
They'll rush above me to oblivion
Outlining white sidewalks with halogen

Oh have you ever felt so goddamn strong
How come it takes some people so damn long
He tried to squeeze the lemon juice to rain
The citrus drawing out the seasons stains

Watch the basin drain
As your life lines wane
And you can't explain
As your friends complain

You've caused all this pain
And you proudly shame
Your whole family's name

Let this be our little secret
No one needs to know were feeling
(Higher and higher and higher)
(Higher and higher and higher)

But I feel alive and I feel it in me
Up and up I keep on climbing
(Higher and higher and higher)
(Higher and higher and higher)

Mother I can tell what you've been thinking
Staring at the stars on your ceiling
Thinking once there was a power that you were wielding
And now I've hit the mark
Staring at the dark
And I cannot help but ignore the people staring at my scars

Let this be our little secret
No one needs to know were feeling
(Higher and higher and higher)
(Higher and higher and higher)

But I feel alive and I feel it in me
Up and up and keep on climbing
(Higher and higher and higher)
(Higher and higher and higher)

    The beginning is deffinatly about his getting caught. Maybe with a girl hes nto supposed to be with or doing drugs and getting (higher) with his friends. And pretty much he doesn't wanna stop getting higher and higher so he tells them or possible the girl (let this be our little secret) and everything blows up into his face again, becasue he can't run away from his secrets. And the part where he says "oh have you ever felt so goddamn strong" he is saying how he doesn't understand why people care about why hes doign what hes doing "how comes it takes some people so damn long" either means to get over the fact that hes not changing or to realize that hes not doing anything wrong. And the rest of the song with him saying that hes ruined his family and name and his mother feel likes shes let him down but he "cannot help but to ignore the people staring at my scars" becasue he doesn't care what anyone else thinks. Idk maybe I'm over annalyzing it?
