Drawing the Line (4:43)

Cover of The Incident

From The Incident and 3 other releases

Drummer Gavin Harrison told examiner.com about this song written by frontman Steven Wilson. Said Harrison: “Steve wrote that piece and then presented it to all of us individually. He had a sort of guide drum track on it, so I stripped that away and tried to imagine what I thought would best thing I could do with it. I think that is one of the most interesting songs on the album. In fact, I think that and “Time Flies” are the only two real ‘songs’ on The Incident that could be taken out and listened to independently… if you had to. If you had to make a single, I would think you could make singles out of either one of them.”

    I do like the chorus. It's not the best thing ever, but I still like it

    I love the chorus and the song, the live version on Octane Twisted even more.

    It's not among my favourites but it's not half as bad as many of you claim, it's just very different compared to other PT songs. Actually, most of the time, I find myself enjoying it. [2]

    Yeah, the chorus is really nice, feels like there's lots of emotion in it =)

    I like the chorus, fits well with the previous 2 songs on the album.

    The chorus sounds like if a teen pop band wrote it...

    This song is absolutely a killer live. Can't wait to hear their next opus. PT rules the world! :)

    One of my fav songs on this PT album; I think because it stands out so much but still is composed of so many familiar PT elements

    The chorus stands out so much because it has nothing to do with any other PT/SW songs. Really, I don't think it's bad, not at all. But maybe it just goes with your mood. If you're feeling like "drawing lines" while you're listening to it, you'll enjoy it. If not, well...

    I don't think there's any shame in making an easily accessible chorus, I think this one makes a fantastic contrast with the rest of the song.

    The song is indeed excellent, the chorus is just sarcastic. Come on, everything is awesome sauce. I was shocked when first heard it though... Well, it's fresh!

    I enjoy the chorus. It is a bit poppy though.
