What does "Pride" by American Authors mean? And what does it have to do with our generation's maturation?

You've all heard people talk with enthusiasm about being "right where they belong," and that's because feeling comfortable is important to people. Unfortunately for the narrator of the song "Pride" by folk, indie band American Authors, the saying may go more like "lost where you belong." That's what the song is about--feeling alone and rising above it. In "Pride," the American Authors' narrator uses pride to remind himself that he's not going to give into the temptation to give up; he's better than that. Now, this pride isn't necessarily the bad kind of pride that a lot of people complain about or accuse each other of. The narrator's pride could lead to that, but his isn't a bad thing when it first appears.
