Song Description

A conscious plea that there must be more to life than a basic 9 to 5 and a meaningless existence. A call to action. The secret to living is giving.

Lyrics

THERE'S A LIGHT AS BRIGHT AS THE SUN ON THE HORIZON
BUT IT'S NOT THE BEACON WE SEEK IT'S JUST A SMOKING GUN
SO WE TRY TO HARDEN OUR HEARTS TO FACE THE NIGHT
BUT WHERE THERE IS SMOKE THERE BURNS THE FIRE
OF EVERY HUMAN DESIRE

THERE IS A HIGHER PURPOSE
THERE MUST BE A HIGHER PURPOSE

IF THERE IS HOPE WE COULD MOVE TO FILL THE VOID
SO MANY FACES TO FEED SO WE AVOID
THE CALLING OF OPEN ARMS
THE BLEEDING OF BROKEN HEARTS
WHEN TEARS FALL CAN YOU HEAR THE NOISE?
THE CALLING OF OPEN ARMS
THE BLEEDING OF BROKEN HEARTS
WHEN TEARS FALL WE HEAR THE NOISE

THERE IS A HIGHER PURPOSE
THERE MUST BE A HIGHER PURPOSE

I'VE FOUND A BRIDGE A PATH ACROSS THE WATER
A WAY TO LIVE AND I STAND AT THE BORDER
I'M ON THE INSIDE I'M LOOKING OUTSIDE
TAKE ME TO PARADISE TAKE ME HIGH

THERE IS A HIGHER PURPOSE
THERE MUST BE A HIGHER PURPOSE
THERE IS A HIGHER PURPOSE
THERE MUST BE A HIGHER PURPOSE

AND I BELIEVE THERE'S A HIGHER PURPOSE
I BELIEVE THERE'S A HIGHER PURPOSE FOR ME

FOR YOU FOR ME I BELIEVE THERE IS A HIGHER PURPOSE
FOR YOU FOR ME I BELIEVE THERE IS A HIGHER PURPOSE
FOR YOU FOR ME I BELIEVE THERE IS A HIGHER PURPOSE

Compassion, love and empathy are not merely Christian values but are the essential elements of humanity. We rise united. We fall divided.
