Charted: 73
  • 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

    Oh, oh,

    At night I feel like a vampire
    It's not right
    I just can't give it up
    I'll try to get myself higher
    Let's go
    We're gonna 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
    Oh, oh,

    Higher places,
    Oh, oh,
    To higher places,
    Oh, oh,
    Higher places,
    Take yourself to higher placesWriter/s: NEIL SANDERSON, ADAM GONTIER, BRAD WALST, BARRY STOCK

  • Giovanna from New Alexandria, PaI want a break from life I have a beast I cant control I want a break...
  • Nathan Ritz from Paoli, InI saw them in concert once it was not as good as the slayer concert last year just because they played my favorite song "i cum blood"
  • Jem from Barrie, OnI agree, I'm pretty sure this song has nothing to do with drugs. It isn't talking about literally getting "higher" its talking about getting to a "higher place" like a safer place. Where you could break free of all of the opression and get to a safe place, and break away from everyone who has put you down.
  • Jerry from China, United Kingdomthree days grace is my favorite band i listen 2 them all the time(this song was preformed 1 day before my birthday)
  • Katie from Atlanta, GaI, for one, don't think this song is about drugs. In my own personal opinion, I think it has to do with breaking free from anything that puts you down. Not my favorite on the TDG new CD but it's still a good one.
  • Jessica from Alta Loma, Cai think this so song is about drugs.. "Tonight my head is spinning"....."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" "I'll try to get myself higher
    Lets go were going to light it up" "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"
