  • my love i see those rising flames
    are those the sabbath candles glowing
    no my love, but you will rest the same
    i haven't seen you since the separation
    i watched you pushed along by the crowd
    on the train you swore we'd stick together
    still i look for you even now

    a million judenkinder, the dulling of the stars
    barefoot across the crystal nacht but we
    can't get thru the bars
    where are you now does heaven pay the price
    can the one who wipes your tears away
    make faith from this ice

    unbar the door for i must come in
    the kingdom of memory, burrows of the night
    i'm no survivor i was not yet born
    but i'm drawn like a sacred rite
    the past it belongs to you
    frozen forever like that lone tattoo
    silent before you i can be your tears
    but i'm locked outside by six million years

    your memories our shield, we will not forget
    we will not forget...
    schreibt und forschreibt for us
    we will not forget
    to our hearts we'll clutch each name
    we will not forget
