Standing On Higher Ground - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

(lead vocal - geoff barradale)

I know the truth
But i can't say
And i have to turn my head
And look the other way

I'm not afraid
And i won't lie
As long as i see no wrong
I won't need to testify

I see the world
And i'm looking from a high place
Way above it all
Standing on higher ground

I breathe the air
While they're running in a rat race
Way above it all
Standing on higher ground

I feel the blow
But i don't speak
And i have to close my eyes
Pretending i'm asleep

Well i see the tears
But i don't cry
As long as i do no wrong
I don't need an alibi

I see the world
And i'm looking from a high place
Way above it all
Standing on higher ground

I breathe the air
While they're running in a rat race
Way above it all
Standing on higher ground
