  • The plans, of a race gone mad
    A final solution to pass
    All dreams are taken from their lives
    No hope for the young all the old realize

    He is but a solitary man
    Whose prejudice will spread like a flame
    Throughout the land
    He's enslaving those who will be free
    Etching his own name in black
    For all of us to hear and see

    A yellow star for those accused
    There's no escape once you've been pinned
    A relocation only to confuse
    And all their propaganda to hide the awful truth

    Screams, in the night
    Scars so deep that they won't mend
    Screams, in the night
    In their souls they can't pretend

    Six million lives on the hands of heads of state
    They followed orders from above
    Then one man when all was lost
    He took his life, he'll never pay the price

    They cannot hide or defend or disguise
    For the truth is well known there'll be no alibis
    Judgment will pass and their fates won't be kind
    For the final solution was mass genocide Writer/s: CHARLIE L. BENANTE, DANIEL ALAN SPITZ, FRANK JOSEPH BELLO, JOSEPH A. BELLARDINI, SCOTT IAN ROSENFELD
