Roger Waters - To the Windward Isles lyrics

REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE To the Windward Isles REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE & CHORUS It comes today REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE The wind of change blows this way REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE & CHORUS Blows this way REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE In Sante Domingo and elsewhere To slaves of sugar and despair REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE & CHORUS Silver, sugar, indigo Silver, sugar, indigo Silver, sugar, indigo Silver, sugar, indigo Silver, sugar, indigo Silver, sugar, indigo Silver, sugar, indigo Silver, sugar, indigo Make even the wisest man "idiot!" Make even the wisest man "idiot!" REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE Bring freedom to the REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE & CHORUS Colonies Act on principle REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE Equality, fraternity and REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE & CHORUS Liberty REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE Are REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE & CHORUS Not just words after all REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE But REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE & CHORUS Sugar is sweet REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE And REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE & CHORUS Coffee is strong Hope goes down with the sun REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE And REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE & CHORUS The sun goes down behind CONDORCET & MARIE MARIANNE Mountains of silver Valleys of sugar And shiploads of indigo Make even the wisest man "idiot!" REVOLUTIONARY SLAVE & CHORUS Make even the wisest man "idiot!" MARIE MARIANNE So come ye ships Across the sea Let's case into the deep This shame and misery In Paris they condemn our rage Condorcet stands his ground and says: CONDORCET My friends if we believe in freedom Then we must unlock this cage COMPANY Vive Condorcet, hear him scold them The frigid reactionary old men Good God above, it's over Enough is enough Enough, enough, enough To the Windward Isles Revolution has arrived They will only free us when They need us to fight for them CONDORCET & MARIE MARIANNE Cast into the deep sea This shame and this misery Silver, sugar and indigo Make even the wisest man "idiot!" CHORUS Make even the wisest man "idiot!" COMPANY "Idiot!"
