about

Dedicated to the memory of Reza Barati

lyrics

Light a candle for the ones who thought
That we’d be bound by the law
And the ones who thought
That they would not be tortured anymore
Light a candle for the children who are learning how to hate
For the women and the men, it’s all too late

Fly a flag for the ones who stayed
To greet the newcomers
And the ones who tried
To stand against the King’s gunners
Fly a flag for the children of the dispossessed, who still
Hold their heads high while swallowing such bitter pills

Let us all rejoice
We built this land
On the blood of the people who were here when it began
And we have a choice
Will we build our future
On the blood of the people who are reaching for our hand?

Light a candle for the ones who thought
That they would not be tortured any more
And the ones who fought
For justice under occupiers’ law
Light a candle for the children of the brutalised
Who will be our leaders in the future
Bitter pills
