I've never exactly held the "Retake Mass Effect" movement in a very high light. I don't agree with their methods, their ideals, or their name. And I especially do not agree with their usage of "hold the line" as it makes rather little sense to me and I can think of several other phrases that would be much more fitting for them.

I especially don't like the phrase because it makes me think of Retake every time I listen to Toto's song Hold the Line. Which is an awesome song which doesn't deserve to be associated with them (mainly because it has nothing to do with them in the first place).

Anyway, I was listening to Hold the Line and thought...maybe I should write lyrics to Hold the Line about "Hold the Line"! And thus this waste of time was born, poking fun at the most extreme elements of the movement.

(I may eventually do a version that follows the life of Major Kirrahe.)

So a one, and a two, and a three (equals six)...


It's not for the people who're loving you all
It's not for the people who're so satisfied
It's not for the people who played through the end
It's not for the people who rate it so high
But it is for the people who are
Just peeved that Shepard died

Hold the line
If I don't like, it's not fine, oh-oh-oh
Hold the line
Mass Effect is all mine, oh-oh-oh

It's not for the people who don't dumb it down
To just the colour of the light, oooh-oooh
It's not for the people who cheer you guys on
It's not for the people who respect your right
To tell the story you want
The story that you wanna write

Hold the line
If I don't like, it's not fine, oh-oh-oh
Hold the line
Mass Effect is all mine, oh-oh-oh

It's all for the people who're screaming your name
Yet insults are all that they say, oooh-oooh
It's all for the people who call themselves fans
But continue to hate you until you obey
They want BioWare to give in
So they're just gonna blame EA

Hold the line
If I don't like, it's not fine, oh-oh-oh
Hold the line
Mass Effect is all mine, oh-oh-oh
Hold the line
If I don't like, it's not fine, oh-oh-oh
Hold the line
BioWare is all mine

BioWare is all mine

BioWare is all mine

BioWare is all mine, oh-oh-ooohhh...
