ROGER WATERS
"To The Windward Isles"

[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!"
