"Belong" as written by and Peter Buck Bill Berry....
Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
She got up from the kitchen table
Folded the newspaper and silenced the radio
Those creatures jumped the barricades
And have headed for the sea, sea

Ooh
Ooh
Those creatures jumped the barricades
And have headed for the sea
She began to breathe
To breathe at the thought of such freedom
Stood and whispered to her child, belong
She held the child and whispered
With calm, calm, belong

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
She stood and whispered to her child, belong
She held the child and whispered
With calm, calm, belong

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Those barricades can only hold for so long
Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
She took the child held tight
Opened the window
A breath, this song, how long
And knew, knew, belong
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

    Song Meaningthe animals were going back to where they belonged. the had been taken away from their habitat and were now returning. The news story (or whatever was on the radio) brought that epiphany to the mom. If you are, where you should be, then you'll be ok.

    She said a message to her child out of love, distilled to a word - in the hope that it will put him on the right path, one that she strayed from.
