I slept through the holocaust,
They murdered almost all of us,
They raped and burned everything else.

I slept through the holocaust,
Dreamed that I was in a field,
Strong and made of steel.

I slept through the holocaust,
Woke up in time for the parade,
The flash and your arms.

I slept through the holocaust,
I was an afterthough,
And wandered around empty streets.

    General CommentThis whole album is completely political, and it is not written to condemn those of yesterday. Rather the song speaks to modern day ignorance of the western world to the rest of the world's pleas for help.
