Lyrics: 

Standing on the precipice
Forever looking down
Dreams of having broken wings
Come crashing to the ground

Scared to face the day again
I'm yearning for the night
Tired of everybody saying
It will be alright

Standing high, high and higher
Looking for a way out of this hell
Standing high, high and higher
Wondering if the whole damn world can tell

Staring at the stars below
My mind is finally free
I can barely catch a glimpse
Of the broken part of me

Standing high, high and higher
Looking for a way out of this hell
Standing high, high and higher
Wondering if the whole damn world can tell

Standing high, high and higher
Looking for a way out of this hell
Standing high, high and higher
Wondering if the whole damn world can tell

Great lyrics, and the production is top-notch! I really like the phrasing of the chorus. The lyrics are really relatable. Very nice!

Really solid alt-rock tune. Great hook and vocals--I particularly like the instrumental break!

What an awesome new song T.C.! I love everything about it! The music is top-notch with some really great solos! Your vocals are mighty damn fine on this! I especially love how strong you sing the chorus. And speaking of the chorus, what a powerful lift you have created there! Every time it came around I was ready to lean in and sing along! The lyrics are outstanding! Er, I mean brilliant! They are really Really GOOD! And that video is really special too! You produced something really entertaining to watch that ties in so well with your song.

So, DUDE, I don't think I'm wrong to say this is the best song of yours I have ever heard (and you have written some great ones!) Sitting in the Rain has always been my favorite but it just might have to step aside for High and Higher! Really great work!
