Thrice “In Exile”

I’m a HUGE fan of Thrice and their new album is amazing. Here’s one of my favorite songs from the album “Beggars”, its called “In Exile”. Lyrically its about our view on our life here on this earth, how temporary this place is for us because we have Heaven to look forward to. I added a video with the song on it so you could hear the song as well as read the lyrics.

I am in exile, a sojourner
A citizen of some other place
All I’ve seen is just a glimmer in a shadowy mirror
But I know, one day we’ll see face to face

I am a nomad, a wanderer
I have nowhere to lay my head down
There’s no point in putting roots too deep when I’m moving on
Not settling for this unsettling town

My heart is filled with songs of forever
The city that endures when all is made new
I know I don’t belong here, I’ll never
Call this place my home, I’m just passing through

I am a pilgrim, a voyager
I won’t rest until my lips touch the shore
Of the land that I’ve been longing for as long as I’ve lived
Where they’ll be no pain or tears anymore

My heart is filled with songs of forever
The city that endures when all is made new
I know I don’t belong here, I’ll never
Call this place my home, I’m just passing through
