This is my reign. I am succeeding.
Come meet the creature you’ve been feeding.

You had a scheme to get yourself a little more.
Go out and scream, “We can just ignore the poor.”
Now here I am. I’m your new reality.
Something that you couldn’t see,
Something hiding. That was me.

So you want to shape opinions,
Bend the truth until it breaks.
But you never saw me rising.
Yeah, you never knew the stakes.
Are you ready for, ready for
A civil war, civil war?
Democracy, democracy: never coming back.

I speak my mind. They don’t like me. I don’t care.
A better you: I say the things you wouldn’t dare.
And don’t believe it could never happen here.
I don’t share your little fears.
I’ve been waiting all these years.

So you want another million.
Only weak men feel remorse.
But you never saw this building.
I’m gonna win it like a dark horse.
Are you ready for, ready for
A leader you must adore
America, ‘merica
Not comin’ back.

Oh, can’t you see the glory we’re creating?
Like a dream where we don’t even hear them when they suffer, when they scream.

Oh, the people who deserve will rule forever, without fear.
We’ll never have to listen to those women. No one cares.

Oh, the little girls will smile at us and giggle.
And the boys will see us as their idols, as their rivals.

You thought that I could never happen
Check it out - I beat the odds.
Isn’t this the thing you wanted?
We will live like Roman gods.
Are you ready for, ready for
A dinosaur we’ll restore.
The demons of ‘33:
They’re comin’ back.
