The song is made up of vocals, as with the majority of the Medúlla album on which it exists. It is quite a dark song in which Björk attacks a younger relative for being greedy and unreliable. She has also said that on this one the vocals of beatboxer Rahzel are edited all the way, because she felt that with Rahzel, she needed to try out both the extremes. The other extreme being “Who Is It” which features Rahzel doing a one-take beatbox, creating a less-brooding arrangement.
The greatest hits tour version of “Where is the Line” varies in regards to its string arrangements. Due to its release prior to Medúlla, Björk arranged the song using the prominent strings to create a more Middle-Eastern feel to the orchestration. On the Volta tour, however, the song is dominated by heavy electronic beats and a synthesized organ, creating a much more Western sound.
