"Where I Belong" as written by and Michael Elizondo Jon Foreman....
Feeling like a refugee
Like you don't belong to me
The colors flash across the sky

This air feels strange to me
Feeling like a tragedy
I take a deep breath and close my eyes
One last time
One last time

Storms on the wasteland
Dark clouds on the plains again
We were born into the fight

But I'm not sentimental
This skin and bones is a rental
And no one makes it out alive

Until I die I'll sing these songs
On the shores of Babylon
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong

Where the weak are finally strong
Where the righteous right the wrongs
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong

Feels like we're just waiting, waiting
While are hearts are just breaking, breaking
Feels like we've been fighting against the tide

I wanna see the earth start shaking
I wanna see a generation
Finally waking up inside

Until I die I'll sing these songs
On the shores of Babylon
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong

Where the weak are finally strong
Where the righteous right the wrongs
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong
A world where I belong

This body's not my home
This world is not my own
But I still can hear the sound
Of my heart beating out
So let's go boys, play it loud

And on that final day I die
I want to hold my head up high
I want to tell you that I tried
To live it like a song

And when I reach the other side
I want to look you in the eye
And know that I've arrived
In a world where I belong
In a world where I belong
In a world where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong

Where I belong

I still believe we can live forever
You and I we begin forever now
Forever now
Forever
I still believe in us together
You and I we're here together now
Together now
Forever now
Forever now
Forever now
Forever
Forever

    My InterpretationJon Foreman is talking about the Christian life in a secular world. The Bible says in Romans 12:2 "Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind."

    I love the wording that Foreman uses. For example, "Storms on the wasteland, Dark clouds on the plains again, We were born into the fight." Here, the song is talking about how every person on earth is born into a continual fight between good and evil (God and Satan who is trying to bring as many people with him to destruction).

    In the following lines, "This skin and bones is a rental, And no one makes it out alive" Foreman refers to how the bodies that we are living in aren't ours. They were given to us by God to glorify him. But when humanity fell into sin, death became a part of life and so now all people only live for a short period of time on earth before spending eternity in heaven or hell.

    "And when I reach the other side, I want to look you in the eye, And know that I've arrived, In a world where I belong" talks about how Foreman wants finish race of the Christian life strong, to be told "Well Done my good and faithful servant" by the Father and spend eternity in heaven in "the world where I belong."

    People were made to have fellowship with God and when we fell into sin, that relationship was broken. Ever since, humanity has tried to fill the void in our hearts with things of this world, but nothing will since they are only "things of this world."

    Foreman ends the song with saying how he wants to be "together" with God "forever" in heaven.
