    I interpret the song as someone trying to explain a situation to someone who doesn't understand. Like trying to explain to someone who's only ever had a happy childhood the meaning of sorrow. I think the singer is stuck in a situation, he can't stay there it's too dangerous, but if he leaves it'll be fatal. 'it feels almost like holding a wolf by the ears' if he lets go he'll be attacked by the wolf, but if he stays he's not got full control of the wolf. The wolf could still escape from his grasp. But he's struggling to get the point across, people don't understand what he's feeling like or that he doesn't need a means to escape but a resolution to the problem. The red flag could symbolise the warning signs that the problem is becoming too much for him, the sign to others somethings not right. But he can not get the point across, so no one knows why he holds the red flag. It remains a mystery to them because they do not understand.
