OH AUSCHWITZ

--------------

Oh Auschwitz!

My ghetto was a heaven,

when I came to you I fell to hell.

It's been many long years,

when asked about home,

I don't know what to tell.

My childhood is a dream on my chest,

the sun rising over another corpse,

that didn't even get to rest.

Oh, Birkenau! The wind blowing,

taking our ashes,

the pain in my heart growing.

--------------------

Oh, Aushcwitz!

Can't you remember?

The lonely girl,

my own family member.

Gone with the wind,

the sorrow, mourn and bad,

Oh, Birkenau! You took them,

and I can't have them back!

The sun rising up,

red light being casted on the chamber of death,

how many of us, destroyed?

Gone with the wind.

----------------------

Oh Auschwitz!

I am begging you.

Release me, let me go,

I am sure this is something you know.

When I will walk to face my death?

I can't live anymore, I am not a human,

I can't take another deep breathe.

Let me be another victim,

who dies on your arms.

Oh Birkenau! Can't you see my tear striped cheeks?

I am crying, with my full heart.

Let me go, let me go.

Gone but never released.
