    "Each Small Candle" Lyrics

    Roger Waters

    Not the torturer will scare me
    Nor the body's final fall
    Nor the barrels of death's rifles
    Nor the shadows on the wall
    Nor the night when to the ground
    The last dim star of pain, is held
    But the blind indifference
    Of a merciless unfeeling world

    Lying in the burnt out shell
    Of some Albanian farm
    An old Babushka

    Holds a crying baby in her arms
    A soldier from the other side
    A man of heart and pride
    Breaks ranks, lays down his rifle
    And kneels by her side

    He binds her wounds
    He gives her food
    And calms the crying child
    She gives him absolution then
    Across the great divide
    He picks his way back through the broken
    China of her life
    And there at the kerb
    The samaritan Serb turns..
    Turns and waves.. goodbye

    And each small candle
    Lights a corner of the dark...
