They Thought They Were Free

When they came for the communists,
I remained silent;
For I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
For I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
For I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
For I wasn't a Jew.

When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.
