Lyric of the Week: CROSS THAT LINE

Well there’s a battle line

There’s a party line

There’s a picket line

There’s a boundary line

There’s a political line

There’s a fortified line

There’s an invisible line

Where do you draw the line

Well I’m waiting in a line

Standing in a line

Stepping out of line

Throwing in the line

Using that old line

Falling for the line

Reeling in the line

Swallowing that line

I

have made a resolution

to start a revolution

I’m gonna cross that line.


I don’t believe in uplines or downlines

I have no use for pickup lines or putdown lines

I’m not out of line and I don’t get in line

I wanna freely slip across the fine lines and thin lines

Fine line between heaven and hell

Thin line between taste and smell

Fine line between love and hate

Thin line between bent and straight

I

have made a resolution

to start a revolution

I’m gonna cross that line.


Ignoring any warning not to step over the line

Building whole megillahs out of throwaway lines

Getting my way without toeing the line

Speaking in my voice without blowing my lines

Go on and read between the lines

Build across the green line

Push it over the red line

See the screaming headline

Close to the borderline

Down to the waterline

Sign on the dotted line

This is the bottom line

I

have made a resolution

to start a revolution

I’m gonna cross that line.

I’m gonna cross that line.
I’m gonna cross that line.

Written in the mid-1990s, when I was living at the Jersey Shore and playing gigs all over the state and beyond, I had hoped I could introduce it to the band I was playing in at the time should they have decided to make the leap from covers to originals. With a fast tempo and a rhythm similar to The Clash's "Rock the Casbah," it would have been a perfect "nothing will hold me back" anthem, but alas, it was my own inertia that held me back. Never recorded or performed as of this posting.
