"Higher" as written by and Zachary James Baker Matthew Charles Sanders....
Freed of the world
Shed of the weight
Onward to see you my friend
Light years above
(Take me higher)
Time seems to wait
(Take me higher)
Promise to see you again

It haunts to remember
All the memories of that day
Pre-flight demonstration
Led to desperate voices fueled by flames
Now I'm out here waitin'
Hoping you would send a sign
Came a million miles
And the earth grows small as I lovingly leave it behind

Freed of the world
Shed of the weight
Onward to see you my friend

We seem to have found it
All the hope we've been denied
There's more than we've been told
Had to find it on the other side
Now I must be dreaming
Face against the frozen glass
But there's no return now
And the blazing worlds salute
As we go flying past

Freed of the world
Shed of the weight
Onward to see you my friend
Light years above
(Take me higher)
Time seems to wait
(Take me higher)
Promise to see you again

Meet you in the stars tonight
There you find me drifting in the ether within the hill

    General CommentFollowing Exist's theme of leaving earth behind to embrace the cosmic perspective and leave the world and its evil ruling class behind (refer to the stage)

    Simply put, its about an astronaut leaving earth, and feeling euphoria for leaving the world and its strife behind.

    One of the easier to understand songs of the album honestly.

    My InterpretationI know this isn't the actual meaning of the song, but I imagine it to be about death. The references to flight can be imagined as the crossing over into the afterlife. As the narrator looks down upon Earth from the afterlife, he realizes how miniscule our Earthly problems really are.

    Lyric by lyric each line seems to be referencing both an astronaut going into space or dying. I don't think this double meaning is intentional but it is definitely interesting to see the parallel between these two ideas.
