Tonight my head is spinning
I need something to pick me up
I've tried but nothing is working
I won't stop, I won't say I've had enough

Tonight I start the fire
Tonight I break away

Break away from everybody
Break away from everything
If you can't stand the way this place is
Take yourself to higher places

At night I feel like a vampire
It's not right but I just can't give it up
I'll try to get myself higher
Lets go were going to light it up

Tonight we start the fire
Tonight we break away

Break away from everybody
Break away from everything
If you can't stand the way this place is
Take yourself to higher places

If you can't stand the way this place is
Take yourself to higher places

Break away from everybody
Break away from everything
If you can't stand the way this place is
Take yourself to higher places

Higher places
To higher places
Higher places
Take yourself to higher places

    The song means that if you don't like your life, then do something about it to make it better. The line "If you can't stand how this place is then take yourself to higher places" kind of explains it all :3 Anyway I love this song, from the very first time I heard it.

    i think that this song is his of how he wants to escape the life that he's in right now, and restart. Go to something higher than where he is. Where he can do good. This song may contain drugs, but that isn't the meaning of the song. Three days grace isn't usually about that stuff. Just saying. (: But it's an amazing song, drugs or not.
