    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.
