Why I like Thrice

September 22, 2009

One of Aaron and my favorite bands, Thrice, came out with a new album recently. It’s AWESOME and AMAZING! It’s the only thing we play at our apartment right now.

Their lyrics are deep  and powerful. I feel good when I listen to their music. The meanings behind their songs are more than skin deep, they can touch you to your core if you understand them with your heart.

One of my new favorite songs is called “In Exile.” It’s about not being content with what Earth has to offer and knowing that you don’t belong here … and longing for something more.

I am an 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 I’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;

I’m not settling for this unsettling town.

 

(chorus)

My heart is filled with songs of forever –

Of a city that endures, where 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 there’ll be no pain or tears anymore.

You can also listen to the song HERE.
