Track Name: Josephine Foster and Rachel Mason - To Flip the Final Gesture of a Potentate (Fidel Castro)
TO FLIP THE FINAL GESTURE OF A POTENTATE
(Fidel Castro)
words by Josephine Foster
music by Rachel Mason
 
Just listen, listen
 to me breathe
 the world is wide
 
upon its knees
 they feel the vigor
 of my disease
 they raise their cups
 and hold their breath
 
to see me die
to toast my death
they wait for breath
to see me breathe!
they would seize
the air I breathe
they would seize
the air I wheeze!
 
and so I lay a final log upon my lip
and light the thing on fire to flip
from my mummy animate
the final gesture of a potentate
