A Knock at the Door

Talked with a survivor shared a story shed some tears
After all the time and distance looked like he was living through those years
He was born in the early forties a childhood not easy to enjoy
Spent his days without security his worries a lot for a little boy

How could he have known what would be in store
That everything would change with A Knock at the Door...

Soldiers took all his belongings he was thrown onto a train
Without a word about his destination the sound of wheels on tracks echoes in his brain
The train arrived the sky was cloudy the air was filled with a burning smell
Children taken from their mothers standing outside the gates of hell

Once there was a town now it is no more
Everything can change with A Knock at the Door...
Used to have a family then there came a war
Everything can change with A Knock at the Door...

In the morn they’d count the living then he’d wait till he was fed
Soup and coffee full of sand and water seeing bodies hanging wishing he were dead
I remember that survivor how he took me through those years
He gave me more than just a story…

Everything can change with A Knock at the Door...
Everything can change with A Knock at the Door...
