"Where I Belong" as written by and Matthew Scott Taylor Tony Richard Thaxton....
Hello there, how you doin'?
I've got all these thoughts just floating through my brain
They bump and they collide and cause a flurry of confusion
And it's getting on my nerves
I try to hold myself together
fighting off this mental weather when I can (sometimes I do)
But this shitstorm's never ending
And the atmospheric pressure's calling for rain

This is what I've got going on
This is where I belong tonight

It's chaos in the courthouse
And the left side's all upset
Because the right side wants a summer home
and knows we can't afford it
I try to mediate between
This constant tug-o-war machine
But wind up in a never ending game of telephone
There's so much going on
And I just need seven minutes to calm myself back down
Now I forgot where I was
Was it me we were talking about?
This is what I feared from the start
I keep falling apart

What's going on, is this where I belong tonight?
(What's going on tonight)
What's going on, is this where I belong tonight?
(What's going on)

(Can't stand) I can't stand the thought of losing
Sentences and every island of words
(Can't stand) I can't stand the thought of losing
Everything I ever thought I that I knew

This is where I run out of words
That describe how I'm so damn hurt
This is where I fumble and fold
And take what I'm told

What's going on, is this where I belong tonight?
(What's going on tonight)
What's going on, is this where I belong tonight?
(What's going on tonight)
What's going on, is this where I belong tonight?
(What's going on tonight)
What's going on, is this where I belong tonight?
(What's going on)

(Can't stand) I can't stand the thought of losing
Sentences and every island of words
(Can't stand) I can't stand the thought of losing
Everything I ever thought I that I knew

    General Commentthis song has nothing to do with politics. It's about having an inner struggle with yourself. About having two different opinions on the same things.
    not being able to make up you're mind.
    its obvious in lines like "I try to hold myself together
    Fighting off this mental weather, when I can"
    the line about the court house, which is really the only half political thing he says in the whole song, is about the two halves of your brain arguing.
    Half of him wants a summer house but the other half knows he cannot afford it.
    And seven minutes is how long the average cigarette takes to smoke.
    It's all about being indecisive, which Justin makes obvious in nearly all of his songs.

    General CommentLove the hell out of this song. I've never been able to relate to a song as much as I can relate to this one.

    The way I see it, it's about a battle against yourself. Shit keeps going wrong, and you get to thinking, and you just get stuck. People try to help, but you're not really interested in their help because it's just creating more problems within yourself. It's like..like you're stuck in this traffic jam that exists in your mind, and you just wanna get the hell out. You want to fix the main thing that's keeping you lost in thought, but you just can't get it right and you get frustrated, and you just give in to the pressure.


    Yeah, definitely my favorite song on the album.
    It's good shit.

    General CommentPossibly about politics??

    This makes me happy.

    I think it fits with the message in Hello Helicopter, which is the track right before it.

    thats like giving up trying, giving up trying to express himself and just like giving up. and taking or accepting whatever the outcome is going to be, like hes tired of arguing.

    General CommentI agree with you, titlenregistration.
    But I think there may be more to this song for some reason. It just seems like the songs on the new album might not be as simple as usual.
