"Nazi Driver" as written by and Hiro Yamamoto Chris J. Cornell....
I don't care if it takes some time
I'm gonna make it right
I'm gonna make it right

Turn the head three hundred and sixty degrees
Bite the hand that feeds
I don't care if it tasted like Poisson
Rip the legs from the thighs
Feed the prison, open the eyes
I don't care if it tastes like poison
I'm gonna feed the prison, feed the prison

Color in the lakes of red
Pile of bones for my bed
I'm gonna take some time, I'm gonna take some time
[mystery scream]
Feed the prison
Not a tear will be shed
The only color is red, red
I don't care if it takes some time
I'm gonna make it right, I'm gonna make it right
Turn the head three hundred and sixty degrees
Bite the hand that feeds
I don't care if it tastes like poison
Feed the prison and open the eyes

Not a tear will be shed
The only color is red
I don't care if it tastes like poison
I'm gonna feed the prison
I'm gonna feed the prison
I'm gonna feed it

    General Commenthey, where are the comments on this one?? cmon people!

    anyways, i agree with you that this is about the holocaust, but i think it's from the perspective of a nazi, not a prisoner.

    "I don't care if it takes some time
    I'm gonna make it right"

    to a nazi, making it right involves killing all jews. that may take time...

    "I don't care if it tastes like poison
    Rip the legs from the thighs
    Feed the prison, save the eyes"

    the nazi knows that his actions are wrong, but he must ignore this by thinking of the prison and its prisoners as an object, ignoring the actual living beings (the eyes).

    General CommentThis song, it seems, is obviously about the Holocaust, and most likely life in the Concentration Camps.

    'Not a tear will be shed
    The only color is red'

    I recently learned about Auschwitz in school, and in that camp, crying was considered 'weak', and basically, if you cried, you died.

    'Pile of bones for my bed'

    The 'narrarator' of this song has to sleep on a crudely made bed, and is probably practically skin and bones..

    I dunno why no one commented this yet, cept me...

    -shrug- It's just a theory...besides, look at the title! 'Nazi Driver' ...but I'm prolly stating the obvious...

    General CommentRevenge on a Nazi makes sense. "I'm going to make it right", "I don't care if it tastes like poison", "Not a tear will be shed" etc.

    General CommentWould this be about prisoners revolting in a concentration camp and cannibalizing the Nazis? They eat everything "save the eyes".

    My InterpretationThe interpretation of this song is very simple. It is talking about a "Nazi Driver" or Nazi soldier delivering people to concentration camps. The Germans think they are making things right (One Master Race) and won't cry or acknowledge the slaughter of the innocent people that went to these places. The people in these concentration camps then planned to revolt against the German army (Turn the head 360 degrees...Bite the hand that feeds).

    General Comment"bite the hand that feeds" could (but probably not) mean bite the Jew's hand as the Jews were stereotypically very rich from a prejudice view from the someone like the Nazis. Or they feed other people's livelihoods with their money investments.

    but as, IceNerveshatter said, its about biting a Nazis hand.
