Death has come
I fear not for myself
But for those I love

Death has come
With the fires of hell
And name stamped Auschwitz

Death has come
He beats me, He starves me
Yet I hold my ground against him

Death has come
For more and more
But not yet for me

Death has come
I am surrounded
So I make walls to keep him out

Death has come
To take me away
But I scream “take them”

Death is gone
And I am alone
It took away the ones I loved
