Edelwiess Pirates “I want a brutal, domineering, fearless cruel youth. Youth must be all that. It must bear pain. There must be nothing weak and gentle about it. The free, splendid beast of prey must once again flash from its eyes. That is how I will eradicate thousands of years of human domestication. That is how I will create the New Order.”- Hitler Hitler's power may lay us low, And keep us locked in chains, But we will smash the chains one day, We'll be free again. We've got the fists and we can fight, We've got the knives and we'll get them out. We want freedom, don't we boys? -Edelweiss Pirates Song
