no way out

one candle in a thousand flames
do you even see it burning
surrounded by the light of those
whose lives just keep on turning
touching one and reaching out
to meet and find the light
the candle slows to flickering
near fading out of sight
heave and push and blow up big
send sparks into the air
silent screams for victory yet
no one seems to care
the candle keeps on burning
keeps on burning burning long
almost snuffing out and yet
forever burning on...
