Where do you stand?
What is your statement?
What is it you're trying to say?

What's in your hand?
What's in your basement?
What's in the cards you don't play?

Are you holding the key or are you intending
To pick the lock of Heaven's gate?
It's confusing to me the message you're sending
And I don't know if I can relate

What's your line?
Tell me why you wear your cross of gold
State of mind
Or does it find a way into your soul?

Is it a flame?
Is it a passion?
A symbol of love living in you

Or is it a game?
Religion in fashion
Some kind of phase you're going through

We all travel the extremes from cellar to rafter
Looking for a place in the sun
So I'm trying to see what you're headed after
But I don't know where you're coming from

What's your line?
Tell me why you wear your cross of gold
State of mind
Or does it find a way into your soul?

What's your line?
Tell me why you wear your cross of gold

For some it's simply something to wear around your neck
Just a chain, jewelery, Is it decoration? Is it an icon?
Or proclamation? An icon of what? What?
For some it's simply something to wear around your neck
Just a chain, it means a lot more than that to me

What's your line?
Tell me why you wear your cross of gold
State of mind
Or does it find a way into your soul?

What's your line?
Tell me why you wear your cross of gold
State of mind
Or does it find a way into your soul?

What it, tell me what it means?
Tell me what it means?
Your cross of gold
