    The lyrics to "Exiles" were written by Richard Palmer-James, an English musician who was a friend of King Crimson vocalist John Wetton and a former member of Supertramp.

    Palmer-James wrote these lyrics after living in the Netherlands for many years, and the lyrics reflect his realization that he was never going back to England. He was now an exile in the Netherlands. He still had some fond memories of England, but it was no longer home. He had left it behind in pursuit of musical stardom, and he found that he no longer belonged there.
