Difference...back then!


The Difference back then mattered a lot
We were believed to be the defects and them the perfect ones
For that we were sent away living in camps to rot
Difference back then killed all hope
Believing the untruth killed our mothers and fathers
Believing their lies killed our sons and daughters
6 million killed because of who they were
5 million children die because they couldn’t find a cure
This madness happened years ago because of one mans heart
Because of that difference back then Germany tore apart
You wanted to get rid of us because we looked so strange
But today the difference now is that we’re still here and that will never change
