No-one ever told me there'd be days like these
Water's runnin' out but the grass is green
Stuck in the 'burbs with the Zanex teens and me
Where do I belong?

I don't know what it is right now
I've got less faith than I have doubt
(But I want to believe)
Oh, God give grace to the young and brutal
We're uninspired but not unuseful
(I want to believe)
There is a way (a way) a way

No-one ever told me there'd be days like these
Water's runnin' out but the grass is green
Stuck in the 'burbs with the Zanex teens and me
Where do I belong?

No-one ever told me there'd be days like these
Sinking in a sea of our apathy
Stuck in the 'burbs with the Zanex teens and me
Where do I belong?

God shed your grace on the brutal, the faithful
The desperate, the wasteful

Where's the hope for the teenage loner?
We all dance 'til the music's over
(Who do we believe?)
Oh, save the bees, is it World War III?
I'll afford my car but not gasoline
(Who do we believe?)

No-one ever told me there'd be days like these
Water's runnin' out but the grass is green
Stuck in the 'burbs with the Zanex teens and me
Where do I belong?

No-one ever told me there'd be days like these
Sinking in a sea of our apathy
Stuck in the 'burbs with the Zanex teens and me
Where do I belong?

God give us grace to be
Brutally faithful
And make up for wasted time

No-one ever told me there'd be days like these
Water's runnin' out but the grass is green
Stuck in the 'burbs with the Zanex teens and me
Where do I belong?

No-one ever told me there'd be days like these
Sinking in a sea of our apathy
Stuck in the 'burbs with the Zanex teens and me
I'm right where I belong
I'm right where I belong
I'm right where I belong

    General CommentIf any of you don't know what this song is, it's the bonus track in/after Field of Daggers on The End is Not the End. If you bought the album off iTunes, I think it's a separate song. Yay you! :D
