"A Line in The Dirt" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
She locked herself in the bathroom again
So I am pissing in the yard
I have to laugh when I think how far it's gone
But things aren't funny any more

I drew a line into the dirt
And dared her to step right across it
And she did

So I am knocking on the door again
I say, "Do you want to be alone?"
She says, "No I don't wanna be alone,
But I think that you do."

I drew a line into the dirt
And dared her to step right across it
And she did

And I know she's right
I know how it would be
If I had my own way with the world
As I know it should be

She locked herself in the bathroom again
So I've been shutting down the lights
And I don't know if I'll ever go back again
I'm drivin' straight into the night

I drew a line into the dirt
And dared her to step right across it
And she did

    My OpinionA song with the phrase "pissing in the yard" really shouldn't be so gorgeous.

    Actually, the magic is in the hearing. Just looking at the lyrics I wouldn't have guessed I'd like the song so much.

    I'm a bit of a sucker for ME's falsetto, though, and the piano and especially the horn(s) add so much depth. The song has a wintry desolate and yet contemplative beauty to it.
