In Exile by Thrice

I don’t usually post videos and songs on here, but this is a favorite of mine. In my opinion, Thrice is one of the best bands around right now and they have been for years. This song perfectly describes our awkward place in this world, how we’re longing for our true home and wandering this earth for just a while, without getting too comfortable, until we’re with Christ in eternity. Check out the video and the lyrics below and I also encourage check out some more of Thrice’s stuff if you never have.


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.

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.
