"Alive with the glory of love" as written by and Max Bemis....
When I watch you, want to 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 yea
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
I won't let them take you, won't let them take you hell no no
No no 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
But Miss Black Eyeliner you'd look finer with each day in hiding oh yea
Beneath the warm wood, ooh love me so good,
They won't hear us screw away the day, I'll make you say
(Alive, alive, alive with 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
Our Treblinka is alive with the glory of love
Treblinka, alive with the glory of love yea

Should they catch us and dispatch us those separate work camps yeah
I'll think about you, I'll dream about you
I will not doubt you with the passing of time
Should they kill me your love will fill me as warm as the bullets
I'll know my purpose this all was worth this I won't let you down

No I won't, no I won't, no I won't
(Alive, alive, alive with love)
I won't let them take you, won't let them take you hell no no

    General Commentlove or lust during the holocaust. i didnt even realise about the meaning until i heard it on scrubs and listened to it again and looked at the lyrics. treblinka was one of the worst death camps, and he also makes that reference to the ghetto (where the jews were kept). id like to think that hes saying that even in the darkest times love can come through, or something can give them some relief.

    General Commenti think matterman is right. theres so many clues about them being jews in occupied germany and taken together with a few different say anything songs and their other references to the war which i think must have been max bemis' special intrest makes sense, especially lines like boot stomp meadows and collect gold fillings...think its fantastically written! very complex and deep and meaningful wihtout being too obviously written, fans of this song should like a walk through hell too its pretty similar and equally brilliant!
