About the Track

While sonically “Higher Education” is an uplifting roots reggae track with Caribbean influences, what lies just beyond the surface is punchy social commentary. Exploring how education has the power to determine the fates of generations, this song sees a better vision for the global community and brings on the soulful voice of Ivan Neville to relay the message. As the title track of the Naya Rockers’ upcoming album, the single lays the foundation for the record’s socially relevant tone of voice.

Lyrics

Higher, Higher, Higher
Higher Education
It breaks the chains
of a bad situation
Higher, Higher, Higher
Higher Education
It’s an option for some
Make it free for everyone
Educate future generations

 

Hopelessness, Is thick in the air
Despair, Seems to be everywhere
Education is the key
To unlock the door
To a better you and me

Ohh whoa

A little help
goes a long way
Opportunity for hope and better days
Access for all is the only solution

Higher, Higher, Higher
Higher Education


let’s break the chain of a sad situation
Higher, Higher, Higher
Higher Education  (higher education)
It’s an option for some
Make it free for everyone
Educate future generations

Don’t let the world dim your light
Gotta stay up
Stay in the fight
If you believe in yourself, others will too
and help will find its way back to you
It’s up to us To find a way
Opportunity for hope and better days
Access for all is the only solution

Higher, Higher, Higher
Higher Education


Let’s make the change
In this bad situation
Higher, Higher, Higher
Higher Education (higher education)
It’s an option for some
Make it free for everyone
Educate future generations

Higher, Higher, Higher
Higher Education (higher education)


Let’s break the change
of a broke situation
Higher, Higher, Higher
Higher Education (higher education)
It’s an option for some
Make it free for everyone
Educate future generations
