"Where Do We Draw The Line" as written by Marko Saaresto, Olli Tukiainen and Markus Kaarlonen....
On your palm an endless wonder
Lines that speak the truth without a sound
In your eyes awaits the tireless hunger
Already looks for prey to run down

So why do we keep up this charade
How do we tell apart the time to leave from the time to wait

What does tomorrow want with me
What does it matter what I see
If it can't be my design
Tell me where do we draw the line

The dance of flames and shadows in the street
Make poetry nobody's ever heard
The weight of loneliness stands on your feet
The cage already there around the bird

So why don't we join the masquerade
Before it all falls apart before our love becomes insatiate

What does tomorrow want with me
What does it matter what I see
If I can't choose my own design
Tell me where do we draw the line

Where's the cooling wind
Where's the evergreen field
Where's my mother's open arms
Where's my father lionheart
S'like the sun's gone down
Sleeps in the hallowed ground now
With the autumn's browns leaves
With the one who never grieves

What does tomorrow want with me
What does it matter what I see
If we all walk behind the blind
Tell me where do we draw the line

Whatever tomorrow wants from me
At least I'm here, at least I'm free
Free to choose to see the signs
This is my line

    My Interpretation" What does tomorrow want with me
    What does it matter what I see
    If I can' t choose my own design"

    I think it's about someone sick of others telling him what to do and now he feels completely unimportant in this world.

    "Whatever tomorrow wants from me
    At least I ' m here, at least I ' m free
    Free to choose to see the signs
    This is my line"

    I think now he is finally set free to make his own choice.
    (Sorry if I'm wrong.Thats what I can think of this song since I am always being told by my parents what to do and desperately waiting for the day I will get to make my own decision )

    General CommentThis really is a beautiful song, one of the best ever! For me it's about the girl having lost her love for the guy and already looking out for a new guy to replace him. And he is just waiting for her to say those final words, unable to take control of the situation, not knowing when it's time to go. He feels lost and is in need of love and security, but everything is gone.

    Had some emotional moments listening to this...

    General CommentThere are many messages scattered around
    inside the song, all of a bitter choice which
    reflect either a real bitter experience or a
    a trial to make it look like that.

    Eitherway, it's a beautiful song. Beautiful
    words. It means the world to me. First time
    I listened to it was 40 minutes ago, and it
    has been repeated eversince and I am not
    intending to change it to any other song
    tonight. Or tomorrow's night. Or the night
    after that.

    For me, personally, it reflcets a current
    experience that I am living.
    The line "If it can't be my design, tell me
    where to draw the line" is very real and
    very suitable for my situation.

    Goddamn women. Goddamn god.
    Goddamn music.
    I wish I was never born.
    I hate Poets of the Fall
    for making me feel.
