See Caesar, see Brutus, see success is like suicide

from Coldplay (Ft. Jay Z) – Lost (Remix) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Brutus was Caesars friend and stabbed him in the back for the good of Rome. Brutus was afraid that Caesar had become too powerful and would be a dictator thus why he stabbed him. If Caesar hadn’t been successful he would have stayed alive. Success kills.
