Track Name: Scatterlings + Refugees
We are scatterlings and refugees, we have never known peace
We have never known a home
Home is wherever we are when we’re together
Peace is the sound that we make when we’re alone

I rang the New Year in
In a field out in the suburbs
Somewhere outside East Berlin
I watched the fireworks
Burn the night
And I wondered where you were and if you were alright

We are scatterlings and refugees, we are bastards, we are orphans
We don't ever make a sound
Traversing the oceans in perpetual motion
Our feet don’t ever touch the ground

We went dancing
Old soul records playing in an alleyway
And we are old souls, you and me
Disappearing at the dawning of the day

We are scatterlings and refugees, we have never known peace
We have never known a home
Home is wherever we are when we’re together
Peace is the sound that we make when we’re alone

And when my telephone rings in the dark
You say ‘Hey, I’m at the White Cross on Las Vegas Boulevard’
No matter where I am, I’ll be on a plane
I’ll go anywhere to see you again

We are scatterlings and refugees, we are angels, we are monsters
We never mattered anyway
We're the patron saints of rented cars and last goodbyes in airport bars
And in the morning, like ghosts, we slip away

We slip away
