"The Final Solution" as written by and Joakim/sundstr�m Broden....
Country in depression
Nation in despair
One man seeking reasons everywhere
Growing hate and anger
The Fuhrer's orders were precise
Who was to be blamed and pay the price!

Wicked propaganda
Turning neighbors into foes
Soldiers of the third Reich searching homes
And then the former friends are watching
As they are rounded up one by one
Times of prosecutions has begun

Ever since it started
On Crystal night of thirty eight
When liberty died
And truth was denied
Sent away on train on a one way trip to hell
Enter the gates Auschwitz awaits!

When freedom burns
The final solution
Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
When millions burn
The curtain has fallen
Lost to the world as they perish in flames

There was a country in depression
There was a nation in despair
One man finding reasons everywhere
Then there was raising hate and anger
The Fuhrer's orders still apply
Who was to be blamed and send to die!

Ever since it started
On Crystal night of thirty eight
When liberty died
And truth was denied
Sent away on train on a one way trip to hell
Enter the gates Auschwitz awaits!

When freedom burns
The final solution
Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
When millions burn
The curtain has fallen
Lost to the world as they perish in flames

When freedom burns
The final solution
Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
When millions burn
The curtain has fallen
Lost to the world as they perish in flames

    Song MeaningThis song is about the jewish people that were sent to concentration camps in WWII by the nazi's.

    "Sent away on train on a one way trip to hell
    Enter the gates Auschwitz awaits!"

    Auschwitz was the biggest concentration camp of them all and is located in Poland.

    "When freedom burns
    The final solution
    Dreams fade away and all hope turns to dust
    When millions burn
    The curtain has fallen
    Lost to the world as they perish in flames"

    This part is about the hope that the jewish people lost and where their lives were ended by the nazis, a part of the jewish people were killed by gas in so called "showers", other were burned alive.

    Song FactThe Final Solution to the Jewish Question (die Endlösung der Judenfrage) was a German plan for the extermination of the Jews during WWII. The policy focused on the deliberate and systematic genocide of Jews across German occupied Europe.

    It was formed by the Nazi leaders in January 1942.

    General CommentAs with most of Sabatons songs the lyrics are pretty straightforward. This one concerned with the persecuation and holocaust against the jewish people during World War II.

    On a note, it's one of Sabatons few songs that deal with a theme other than a specific battle, instead focusing on another aspect of the war.

    I really enjoy how they used the synth at the beginning of the song.
