When “High Hopes” released …., Brendon Urie tweeted, “I spent too long not setting my expectations high enough, worried about how it felt to fail. I hit a point when I realized I had to aim high and fail, fail, fail in order to keep growing. This one is for all of you who helped me go for it all. I thank you.” Urie didn’t say indicate that his words had specifically to do with “High Hopes,” but this was the emotion he chose to share with his fans upon the song’s release, and that emotion certainly fits with the lyrics meaning.

The song will be featured in the National Hockey League’s promotional campaign for the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals, which is a fitting choice given the upbeat song’s motivational themes.
“I spent too long not setting my expectations high enough, worried about how it felt to fail,” Urie wrote about the song. “I hit a point when I realized I had to aim high and fail, fail, fail in order to keep growing. This one is for all of you who helped me go for it all. Thank you.”

At this point, Panic! At The Disco’s studio recordings are well beyond a standard rock band lineup. Released today, their new song “High Hopes” opens with a blaring brass section and Brendon Urie’s crisp vocals soon join—a collection of backing vocals behind them in multiple sections; classical strings feel in place, though sitting closely to the aforementioned and joined by some electronic music stylings in the approximately three-minute track.

Had to have high high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn’t make a killing
Didn’t have a dime but I always had a vision
Always had high high hopes
Had to have high high hopes for a living
Didn’t know how but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high high hopes

Mama said
Fulfill the prophecy
Be something greater
Go make a legacy
Manifest destiny
Back in the days
We wanted everything

 

Mama said
Burn your biographies
Rewrite your history
Light up your wildest dreams
Museum victories
Everyday
We wanted everything

Mama said
It’s uphill for oddities
The stranger crusaders
Ain’t ever wannabes
The weird and the novelties
Don’t ever change
We wanted everything

Stay up on that rise
Stay up on that rise
Stay up on that rise
Never come down

 

Mama said don’t give up, it’s a little complicated
all tied up, no more love and i hate to see you waiting

They say it’s all been done but they haven’t seen the best of me
So I got one more run and it’s gonna be a sight to see

Had to have high high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn’t make a killing
Didn’t have a dime but I always had a vision
Always had high high hopes
Had to have high high hopes for a living
Didn’t know how but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high high hopes

Always had high high hopes

I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high high hopes
