Belong - R.E.M.

Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
She got up from the kitchen table
Folded the newspaper and silenced the radio
Those creatures jumped the barricades
And have headed for the sea, sea

Oh........

Those creatures jumped the barricades
And have headed for the sea
She began to breathe
To breathe at the thought of this freedom
Stood and whispered to her child, belong
She held the child and whispered
With calm, calm; belong

Oh........

She stood and whispered to her child, belong
She held the child and whispered
With calm, calm; belong

Oh........

Those barricades can only hold for so long
Her world collapsed early Sunday morning
She took the child held tight
Opened the window
A breath, this song, how long
And knew, knew; belong
Oh........
