Refugees Lyrics - Van Der Graaf Generator
Review The Song (2)
North was somewhere years ago and cold:
Ice locked the people's hearts and made them old.
South was birth to pleasant lands, but dry:
I walked the waters' depths and played my mind.
East was dawn, coming alive in the golden sun:
the winds came, gently, several heads became one
in the summertime, though august people sneered;
we were at peace, and we cheered.
We walked alone, sometimes hand in hand,
between the thin lines marking sea and sand;
smiling very peacefully,
we began to notice that we could be free,
and we moved together to the West.
West is where all days will someday end;
where the colours turn from grey to gold,
and you can be with the friends.
And light flakes the golden clouds above all;
West is Mike and Susie,
West is where I love.
There we shall spend our final days of our lives;
tell the same old stories: yeah well, at least we tried.
Into the West, smiles on our faces, we'll go;
oh, yes, and our apologies to those
who'll never really know the way.
We're refugees, walking away from the life
that we've known and loved;
nothing to do or say, nowhere to stay; now we are alone.
We're refugees, carrying all we own
in brown bags, tied up with string;
nothing to think, it doesn't mean a thing,
but we'll be happy on our own.
West is Mike and Susie;
West is where I love,
West is refugees' home.

something special | Reviewer: Andy Pearce (Liverpool) | 10/2/13
I heard this song by accident on spotify and had to play it about 15 times , if you shut your eyes and listen to the lyrics it justs makes your skin tingle.
This is positively one of the best songs I have heard
Refugees. Great song! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/19/11
Great song! this was the very first song I listened from VDGG and blew me away! It's sad that we cannot find good music out there, everything is pop pre-fabricated without composition from the interpreters, they just perform and take care of their image, no musical contribution like progressive rock bands.
