Anthrax – The Enemy lyrics

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
Screams-in the night
In their souls they can't pretend
Screams-in the night

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's be no alibis
Judgment will pass and their tales
Won't be kind
For the final solution was mass genocide

    This is definitely and obviously about wwii. It's talking about the Final Plan that Hitler implemented on the Jews. The Jews were given a yellow star in the Holocaust to make them recognizable as Jewish. The were about Six million people killed in the Holocaust. They were "relocated" like the song says to prison or work camps that was told to be a vacation or something of that sort. "He took his life" means that Hitler committed suicide once the Allies were closing in on him.
