He showed up all wet
On the rainy front step
And the war he saw
Lives inside him still
Measure the bones
Count the face
Pull out the teeth
Do you belong to the human race
Here is a dancer
Who has no legs
Here is a healer
Who has no hands
These are the answers
Stacked like wood
She stands with her brother
With thousands of men
Her head has been shaven
By a black uniform
Tears on her pillow
She tightens her lips
Touches the number
Tattooed on her wrist
The sigh says "Treblinka"
Slowly 'round
The raven flies
Scours the trees
Where they hide
The beast he threatens
"You wont survive"
She rises her fist
And whispers in her sleep
"I am going to live!
I am going to live!"

Here is a healer who has no hands
Here is a thinker who has no feet
Here is a teacher who has no face
Here is a builder who has no back
These are the answers
Here is potential gone for good

The mat on floor says welcome, the sign on the door says no
Says 'No coloreds allowed unless you're playing in the show'
She raises her fist and whispers in her sleep
“I am going to live!”
Blood in all the streets, running like a flood
I reach out my hand, touching death itself

War is a wicked bird that never comes to a rest
An evil bird flying in the dark
Slowly 'round
Scours the trees where they hide
The beast he threatens
“You won't survive”

Can't you stop the war, bring it to a close
You are tall and strong and I am a just a child
He showed up all wet
The war lives inside him still
The years passed by
Make a blessed world where I can be a child

There is no more love and no more longing
Ugly girl, pretty girl, faggot, Jew, do you hate them?
Fire from the sky, burning down my life
Took my first steps into this corridor of death
Just outside of victory, 19 of us died
If I'm good enough to live, then we've got to find the space
For them in our hearts

This train is gonna carry my mother, father, and my sister.
One hundred people Gypsies, queers, and David's stars.
Do you shock the monkeys, cover our eyes with clear blue skies.
Faggot, faggot, do you hate him cause he's pieces of you.
Her head has been shaven by a black uniform.
She touches the tattooed numbers on her wrist.
In the doors of the chambers there's one door of hope.
I reach out my hand, touching death it'self just a holy day in sarajevo.
I can hear my heart pounding like a clock.
I dream of flowers on a hill.
I dream of my mother smiling.
When I close my eyes I dream of peace.

Razor on the wire
Blood in all the streets, running like a flood.
Fire is the sky, burning down her life
Again she cant breath.
"Do you belong to the human race"
Touches the number, tattooed on her wrist
There's no where to hide, no where that she can go.
Tears on her pillow.
As she tries to shield all her painful tear.
They say “shes a Jew” as thought being born was to be here
There is no one left who can protect her.
She closes her eyes, hoping to sleep, Hoping it is all a dream.
She would wake up, happy with love,
She would open her eyes and give all peace.
In the morning, she awoke, hoping to see,
Where all of God's children again would be free
But when she woke up,
They were all still so weary.
She stood in front of all the others and shouted,
“We will persevere!”
One morning she will wake up, happiness will be hers.
But until that day, she will hold back all her fear.

Count the face,
skin and bone.
One hundred people,
in a railroad car.
Gypsies, queers,
and David's Stars.
Touches the number,
tattooed on her wrist.
Again she can't breath.
Slowly 'round,
the raven flies.
The beast he threatens,
"You won't survive"
