Creed – Higher lyrics

When dreaming I'm guided to another world
Time and time again
At sunrise I fight to stay asleep
'Cause I don't want to leave the comfort of this place
'Cause there's a hunger, a longing to escape
From the life I live when I'm awake
So let's go there
Let's make our escape
Come on, let's go there
Let's ask can we stay?

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

Although I would like our world to change
It helps me to appreciate
Those nights and those dreams
But, my friend, I'd sacrifice all those nights
If I could make the Earth and my dreams the same
The only difference is
To let love replace all our hate
So let's go there
Let's make our escape
Come on, let's go there
Let's ask can we stay?

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

So lets go there, lets go there,
Come on, lets go there
Lets ask can we stay?

Up high I feel like I'm alive for the very first time
Set up high I'm strong enough to take these dreams
And make them mine
Set up high I'm strong enough to take these dreams
And make them mine

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

Can you take me Higher?
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me Higher?
To a place with golden streets

    This song is amazing, like one of thee best songs ever written, if not instruementally, then defiantly lyrical wise. To me its him telling of his biggest desire, which is to make the sanctity and pureness of his dreams a reality. The beginning of the song, he wishes that he would never have to wake up from his dreams, he wants to stay in that world. Then he starts to tell of how he appriecaiates the evil in the world because they make his pure dreams special. But torwards the end of his song he says that he would gladly give up unearthly dreams for the world to change into his dreams. And the Chorus (especially at the end) gives the feeling that he knows what world possesses his desires: Heaven, so I think hes either asking God to take him up or asking Him to bring His Kingdom down here.
    Anyway great song.
