He took the reins of power in 1933
The appointed deputy fuhrer of the N.S.D.A.P.
This is the story of Rudolph Hess, a brave and loyal man
Gave his life for his beliefs because he loved his land
On that night of May, 10th in 1941
He boarded an Me-110, for his mission had just begun
Destination-Scotland, the Duke of Hamilton he must seek
But what was to unfold from his emissary of peace?

Sieg Heil-Rudolf Hess, your legacy lives on
Your courage and your honour keeps us marching strong
Sieg Heil-Rudolf Hess, amongst the gods you lie
You live on in Valhalla, 'cause true heroes never die

Imprisoned, for his proposal of peace
An attempt at White unity so the brother's war would cease
Held as a private prisoner for the duration of the war
Until October 1945 when the trial hit the floor
Hess was found guilty of crimes against peace
Sentenced to a life in hell for fighting for his beliefs
Then for the next 40 years he'd rot in a Spandau cell
'Cause he tried to end the war, they sentenced him to hell

(Repeat Chorus)


Now stripped of his identity and left to rot away
No longer known as Rudolf Hess,
Number 7 his new name
Until in 1987 on August 17th
When Hess began his journey in to eternal sleep
You're gone but not forgotten,
You live in our hearts and minds
What you have done to save your race
Sends chills down my spine
Every year on the 17th we fly our flags up high
And salute in remembrance
A true martyr of our time

(Repeat Chorus) x2
