Atlas is the sixth song from Coheed and Cambria's 2015 album The Color Before the Sun.

Like the rest of the tracks on this album, this song exists outside of The Amory Wars canon. The band's singer, Claudio Sanchez wrote this song about his to-be-born son, Atlas. Concerning his job requiring him to leave for periods of time, Claudio explains, "although I’m leaving him, he’ll be the anchor that will allow me to remember where home is, and no matter where I am in the world he will be with me. Home doesn’t have to be a structure that sits somewhere, you see. It’s just the comfort of family, I think."

Lyrics Edit

We carried on unnoticed, thinking that all dreams were ours for the taking
And out of that we found ourselves back at the start of it all
So scarred and incomplete
Only now I’ve come to this moment in my life
Fitting pieces to a puzzle with no regrets
But if I had just one chance left
I’d hold on to her close with what little confidence I have
Make no mistakes, as your life’s surely about to change
For the better half
Now on your marks get set, clock starts to count
Cause boy everything’s about to go down

So sleep tight, little Atlas cause when your daddy goes off just you know
That you’re the weight of his anchor, the love that is guiding him home

Oh I’ve had my share of leaving this retreat
But never did it once feel anything like you, you see
And if there’s one good thing that comes from my away
It’s that you won't be anything like me
Oh, and so better for it you will be

So sleep tight, little Atlas cause when your daddy goes off just you know
That you’re the weight of his anchor, the love that is guiding him home
The love that's guiding him home
The love that's guiding him home
The love that's guiding him home
The love that's guiding him home

There’s no running away from what’s been done here
Will you sink with the ship or will you burn it down?
Now give us the man that you’ve been hiding
Cause this is your life now
This is your life now
This is your life now

So sleep tight, little Atlas cause when your daddy goes off just you know
That you’re the weight of his anchor, the love that is guiding him home
So sleep tight, little Atlas cause when your daddy goes off just you know
That you’re the weight of his anchor, the love that is guiding him home
