Never Again

Album: The Swarm (1998)
  • Feel this,
    To all those races, colors, and creeds, every man bleeds for the
    Countless victims and all their families of
    The murdered, tortured and slaved, raped, robbed and persecuted
    Never again, to the men, women, and children.
    Who died in their struggle to survive, never to be forgotten.
    Reuven ben menachum, yo

    Yo my own blood, dragged through the mud
    Perished in my heart still cherished and loved
    Stripped of our pride, everything we lived for
    Families cried, there's no where to run to, no where to hide
    Tossed to the side, access denied
    Six million died for what? Yo a man shot dead in his back
    Helpless women and children under constant attack
    For no reason, till the next season, and we still bleeding
    Yo it's freezing, and men burn in hell, some for squeezing
    No hope for a remedy, nothing to believe
    Moving targets who walk with the star in their sleeve
    Forever marked wit a number, tattooed to your body
    Late night, eyes closed, clutched to my shotty
    Having visions, flashes of death camps and prisons, no provisions
    Deceived by the devils decisions, forced into a slave
    Death before dishonor for those men who were brave
    Shot and sent to their grave, can't awaken, it's too late
    Everything's been taken, I'm shaken, family, history, the making

    [Chorus]
    Never again shall we march like sheep to the slaughter
    Never again shall we sit and take orders
    Stripped of our culture, robbed of our name
    Raped of our freedom and thrown into the flames
    Forced from our families, taken from our homes
    Moved from our god then burned of our bones
    Never again, never again, shall we march like sheep to the slaughter
    Leave our sons and daughters, stripped of our culture
    Robbed of our name
    Raped of our freedom and thrown into the flames
    Forced from our families, taken from our homes
    Moved from our god and everything we own

    Some fled through the rumors of wars
    But most left were dead, few escaped to the shores
    With just one loaf of bread, banished, hold in for questioning
    And vanished, never to be seen again, I can't express the pain
    That was felt in the train to Auschwitz, tears poured down like rain
    Naked face to face, with the master race, hatred blood and David
    My heart belongs to God and stay sacred
    Rabbi's and priests, disabled individuals
    The poor, the scholars all labeled common criminals
    Mass extermination, total annihilation
    Shipped into the ghetto and prepared for liquidation
    Tortured and starved, innocent experiments
    Stripped down and carved up or gassed to death
    The last hour, I smelled the flowers
    Flashbacks of family then sent to the showers
    Powerless undressed, women with babies clumped tight to their chest
    Crying, who would've guessed, dying, another life lost
    Count the cost, another body gas burned and tossed in the holocaust

    [Chorus]

    Never again, never again
    The final solution is now retribution
