Atlas Genius – Refugees lyrics
Roads of gold are forever dulled
Taking stock of what you lost
And what you want to take
Roads of time will be straight again
If we stop, we can see ahead
The mountains desecrate

So as we caught ourselves astray
We're floating on our own
Hoping to reach tomorrow

These ghosts of ours, we sent away
Like refugees, nowhere to stay
A carousel of fallen days
Like refugees, nowhere to stay

Tried to cross at the quiet edge
Fell asleep at the shallow end
The hours turn to grey
I want to feel like you meant it
I want to think that we held it all
As the fever starts to take

So as we caught ourselves astray
We're floating on our own
Hoping to reach tomorrow

These ghosts of ours, we sent away
Like refugees, nowhere to stay
A carousel of fallen days
Like refugees, nowhere to stay

I put my thoughts through a metal sift
To separate my truth as illusion
And what I find, I will forgive
'Cause there aren't really any solutions
You said you felt so alive right at the summer's edge
This moment never resolves 'cause
There is no end

These ghosts of ours, we sent away
Like refugees, nowhere to stay
A carousel of fallen days
Like refugees, nowhere to stay

This road is unknown
We let go of these ghosts

This road is unknown
We let go of these ghosts

This road is unknown
We let go of these ghosts

This road is unknown
We let go of these ghosts
