We march along through endless darkness into darkness We tread the over-trodden certainty that makes Blood Road

Birdsong frames our lonely marching song As we trudge on on on and on laughing into darkness We go crying into darkness

The darkness almost comforts us enfolds confuses us It covers us and waits for us like patient parents waiting It never lets us down won’t leave us un-caressed

Darkness loves us seduces us preparing us and raping us

Blood Road to Buchenwald

Along this road we know our way The way from darkness into terrifying darkness

Along Blood Road we have a certainty

Along Blood Road we laugh and cry

Beyond Blood Road we know we’ll die
