You can blow out a candle
But you can’t blow out a fire
Once the flames begin to catch
The wind will blow it higher
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
-The man is dead

And the eyes of the world are
watching now
watching now

From the song, Biko, by Peter Gabriel, 1980

Though I very much welcome your comments, I am probably not going to run many/any of them on this one.

    Candles have always fascinated me too. I love how they can burn for so long but then at the end, you really do have to be careful about their potential to start a fire.

    Great piece. Thanks for running this. Word needs to get out.

  • I thought that was a Simple Minds tune.

  • Jim Keltner

    You were born too late FOARP as usual. It was written by Gabriel and the Simple Minds version is lame in comparison.
