60 Years Later / After the Camps


They were our neighbors Torn from our community How could this happen How could this happen Nurseries and barber shops Sold at bargain rates Sold at bargain rates “Please, take the horse and chickens” And the fields left fallow And the fields left fallow Crying for children's laughter Young lovers' meeting Young lovers' meeting Near barbed wire, guard towers Boredom and hot dust Boredom and hot dust Faded memories. At last Soft voices speaking Soft voices speaking To those who did not witness Utter disbelief Utter disbelief It will not happen this time They are our neighbors


他们是我们的邻居 从我们的社区被剥离 这怎么可能发生 这怎么可能发生 幼儿园和理发店 以廉价出售了 以廉价出售了 “请牵走马带走鸡” 田园荒芜了 田园荒芜了 迫切需要小孩的笑声 年轻恋人的相会 年轻恋人的相会 靠近铁丝网和岗楼 百无聊赖,滚烫的尘埃 百无聊赖,滚烫的尘埃 对于那些没有目睹的人 这完全难以置信 这完全难以置信 如今此事再也不会发生 他们是我们的邻居

A nick on the jaw The razor's edge of manhood Along the bloodline


下巴上割伤 成人的剃刀锋 沿着血缘
