    Makes you think that none of the conspirators taking part in Julius Cesar's assassination lived long enough to die of natural causes. They all died in battle, committed suicide (sometimes imposed by others) or ended up assassinated.

    Makes you think.

    Like many plotters, they had no vision of what they were going to do after Caesar was dead. If they had, the next to go would have been Anthony and Octavian. That was what lead to their (the conspirators) deaths.

    No, you got the lyrics wrong. It's, "The eyes of Texas are upon you."
