Lyrics

It's not home
Where men sell their souls
And the taste of power is sweet

Where wrong is right
And neighbors fight
While the hungry are dying in the streets

Where kids are abused
And women are used
And the weak are crushed by the strong

Nations gone mad
Jesus is sad
And I don't belong

I don't belong
And I'm going someday
Home to my own native land
I don't belong
And it seems like I hear
The sound of a welcome home band
I don't belong
I'm a foreigner here
Singing a sojourner's song
I've always known
This place ain't home
And I don't belong

Don't belong
But while I'm here
I'll be living like I've nothing to lose

And while I breathe
I'll just believe
My Lord is gonna see me through

I'll not be deceived
By earth's make-believe
I'll close my ears to her siren song

By praising His name
I'm not ashamed
'Cause I don't belong

I don't belong
And I'm going someday
Home to my own native land
I don't belong
And it seems like I hear
The sound of a welcome home band
I don't belong
I'm a foreigner here
Singing a sojourner's song
I've always known
This place ain't home
And I don't belong

I belong
To a kingdom of peace
Where only love is the law

Where children lead
And captives are freed
And God becomes a baby on the straw

Where dead men live
And rich men give
Their kingdoms to buy back a song

Where sinners like me
Become royalty
And we'll all belong

Yes I belong
And I'm going someday
Home to my own native land
Where I'll belong
And it seems like I hear
The sound of a welcome home band
Yes, I'll belong
No foreigner there
Singing a sojourner's song
I've always known
I'm going home
Where I belong
Yes I've always known
This place ain't home
And I don't belong
