about

A song about bands growing in success but forgetting everyone they knew and losing their identity along the way

lyrics

CROSS THE LINE

HAD A SHOT OF FAME AND SUCCESS
WE PATTED YOU ON THE BACK, WISHED YOU THE BEST
OFFERED OUR RESPECT AND SUPPORT
IT WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING, THAT'S WHAT WE THOUGHT
IT DISGUSTS ME HOW SUCCESS CHANGED YOU
SURPRISED HOW QUICKLY YOUR EGO GREW
DON'T WANT TO KNOW THE PEOPLE FROM YOUR PAST
REMEMBER THE FAME MIGHT NOT LAST

'SOLD OUT YOUR FRIENDS SOLD OUT YOUR CLASS
BEWARE SUCCESS MIGHT NOT LAST
SOLD OUT YOUR FRIENDS SOLD OUT YOUR CLASS
ONCE YOU CROSS THE LINE YOU CAN'T COME BACK

SO YOU FABRICATED A STREET LIFE HISTORY
TO GIVE YOURSELF SOME CREDIBILITY
GANGS, GUNS, DRUGS AND POVERTY
LYING LIKE THAT HAVE YOU GOT NO DIGNITY
GOT NO TIME TO STOP AND CHAT
MIX WITH THE UPPER-CLASS ACTING THE TWAT
NOTHING TO THEM BUT THEIR PET PLEB
AS THEY NOD AND PAT YOU ON THE HEAD

'SOLD OUT YOUR FRIENDS SOLD OUT YOUR CLASS
BEWARE SUCCESS MIGHT NOT LAST
SOLD OUT YOUR FRIENDS SOLD OUT YOUR CLASS
ONCE YOU CROSS THE LINE YOU CAN'T COME BACK

RUBBING COCKS WITH THE MEDIA TYPES
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH SYCOPHANTIC ARSE WIPES
SOLD YOUR SOUL FOR A SLICE OF FAME
GOT NO RESPECT GOT NO SHAME
TOOK A CULTURE BORN FROM THE STREETS
SOLD IT ON TO THE UPPER CLASS ELITE
SWALLOWED THE FAME, SHIT OUT YOUR PRIDE
AS YOUR INTEGRITY SLOWLY DIED

SOLD OUT YOUR FRIENDS
SOLD OUT YOUR CLASS
CROSS THE LINE
YOU CAN'T COME BACK
