about

The dictator, Mussolini imagines himself the political descendant of Caesar bringing Italy back to it’s imperialist days of the Romans. He sets his eyes on Ethiopia, a place in the sun. He will bring Italy back to its deserved, ancient glory. He will protect its people from the rise of socialism in the east. He will protect the rich and liberate the poor. He will be the father, brother, husband and best friend to those who follow; the enemy and final judge for those who do not. The mission becomes sacred in a new, ever morphing doctrine. Everyone and everything in the State. He will make his nation great again!

lyrics

I don’t think it’s crazy
But it’s a sign of the times
We want the best
Lest we forget
We won’t regret.

I can make it easy
I know you’ve got a dream
Believe in me
I will set us free
It’s so easy
If you follow me.

Remember a time
When kings trembled at our feet?
This is a sign
We will bring them to their knees!

We deserve, we deserve our place in the sun, ya
We deserve, we deserve to be number one
God and Cesar wrote it in the history books it’s plain
We deserve, we deserve to make our nation great again! 2x

Some people have gone crazy
You know, they’ve lost their minds
There’s jealousy, tyranny, hypocrisy
I bring security, trust in me.

Forward we march freely
out of love and duty
From obscurity, to liberty,
we march forward to the drum beat.

This is the time
When you will tremble at my feet
I am the sign
I am the law, I am the creed.

We deserve, we deserve our place in the sun, ya
We deserve, we deserve to be number one
Kings and Jesus wrote it in the history books it’s plain
We deserve, we deserve to make our nation great again.

We deserve, we deserve our place in the sun, ya
We deserve, we deserve to be number one
Kings and Cesar wrote it in the history books it’s plain
We deserve, we deserve to make our nation great again.
