@Robert, I'm afraid not- it seems to be about desire. Those things between the refrain lyrics speak of "you and your sweet desire"

The song is about faith. We are all given a measure of faith " from the first day". If we choose to give it up or not embrace The Holy Spirit; thats a slide for sure. It's magic. Listen with a different ear. Rev. Rob

When they sing 'higher and higher', they're making an anti-drug statement.
They mean that we shouldn't have to use chemicals or external substances to get our high. Living should be a high in itself.

(I just made that up. Does it sound impressive?)
