Crossing the Line is sung during the episode Rapunzel's Return after Cassandra reveals she is the biological daughter of Mother Gothel and how she cut ties with Rapunzel and she is determined to create her own destiny to achieve the dreams and glory she's always wanted for herself after her betrayal was revealed.


Rapunzel: This has to stop now

Whatever it is that you're going through

We'll face it together, me and you

Just like we've always done

Cassandra: No! This has to stop now

This thing where you think that you've been my friend

And don't even hear how you condescend

The way you've always done

Rapunzel: Cassandra, listen (I'm listening)

I know it isn't true (Isn't it?)

Just look into my eyes, (Well)

I know you feel it too (Perhaps I do)

Cassandra, listen (I'm listening)

I swear it's not too late

So before another line gets crossed

And everything we've had is lost

Just wait

Cassandra: No, I won't wait! There's a line between the winners and the losers

There's a line between the chosen and the rest

And I've done the best I could, but I've always known just where we stood

Me here with the luckless, you there with the blessed

And that line between the beggars and the choosers

Is the line you never let me quite ignore

How I tried to jump that great divide, but I've never got the chances you were given

You don't know how much I've been denied, well, I'm not being patient anymore

I'm crossing the line!

And I'm done holding back

So look out, clear the track,

It's my turn!

I'm taking what's mine!

Every drop, every smidge

If I'm burning a bridge,

Let it burn!

But I'm crossing the line!

And for us, if we're over, that's fine!!!

I'm crossing the line!!


  • When Cassandra sees herself inside Rapunzel's eyes is similar to the way Wuya is shown inside of Raimundo's eyes at the near of the beginning of the Xiaolin Showdown episode In the Flesh. Plus, the Idol of Vershaftsbezeigungengien can be shown inside Rapunzel's eyes during the episode Happiness Is...
  • The way Cassandra points her finger at Rapunzel during the song is similar to the way Raimundo pointed his finger at Omi, Kimiko and Clay during the Xiaolin Showdown episode Days Past.
