Ohh

A plan of the 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

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

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

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

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

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

Ohh

Oo, they cannot hide or defend or disguise
For the truth is well known, there'll be no alibis
Judgment will pass and their tales won't be kind
For the final solution was mass genocide

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

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

Screams in the night
