When I watch you, wanna do you
Right where you're standing, yeah
Right on the foyer, on this dark day
Right in plain view, oh yeah
Of the whole ghetto, the boot-stomped meadows
But we ignore that, yeah
You're lovely baby, this war is crazy
I won't let you down, oh no, no

No, I won't let them take you
Won't let them take you, hell no no
Oh no, I won't let them take you
Won't let them take you, hell no no

No, oh no no no
And when our city, vast and shitty
Falls to the axis, yeah
They'll search the buildings, collect gold fillings
Wallets and rings, oh yeah
But miss black eyeliner, you'd look finer
With each day in hiding, oh yeah
Beneath the wormwood, ooh love me so good
They won't hear us screw away the day
I'll make you say

(background) Alive, alive, alive with the glory of love

No, I won't let them take you
Won't let them take you, hell no no
Oh no, I won't let them take you
Won't let them take you, hell no no

Our Treblinkah is alive with the glory of love
Treblinkah, alive with the glory of love, yeah

Should they catch us, and dispatch us
to those separate work camps
I'll dream about you, I will not doubt you
With the passing of time, oh yeah

Should they kill me, your love will fill me
As one as the bullets, yeah
I'll know my purpose, this war was worth this
I won't let you down, no I won't no I won't no I won't

Hell no no, whoa no, I won't let them take you
Won't let them take you, hell no no
No no

    General CommentWell, it was originally called Treblinkah before it was put on the new album.

    I adore this song. I get weird looks when I wander around the singing the opening lines. :P

    This song's based on film The Pianist. I just think it's interesting, taking common themes like love and sex and putting it against a backdrop people don't generally associate those themes with - ie. the Holocaust.

    General CommentActually, I'm pretty sure Max said in an interview that AWTGOL is based on that movie.

    General CommentEven if it isn't about the pianist its still obviously about the holocaust. I get chills from this song. And the music video work well with the meaning.

    General Commentmax interviewed his grandparents about the holocaust before he wrote this.
