The Getaway Plan – Red Flag lyrics

Have you ever felt
Ever felt like this?
It feels almost like holding a wolf by it's ears
It's not finding the door, it's finding a resolution

If you've never felt
Never felt like this
If you knew what you're missing
There's so much to miss
Your face to the floor
The sounds of the armies moving

I'll leave a note
Down in a box by your bed
And we'll never know where you've been
Or how this red flag's in your hand

Have you ever felt
Felt so flexible?
Like elastic we bend and like snowflakes we fall
If we can't find the door
How will we end this motion?

Have you ever seen
Such a perfect scene
They're all trying so hard just to say what they mean
And watching them fail is like watching an execution

I'll leave a note
Down in a box by your bed
And we'll never know where you've been
Or how this red flag's in your hands

In your hands
In your hands
Your hands...

This red flag
In your hands [x8]

I'll leave a note
Down in a box by your bed
And we'll never know where you've been
Or how this red flag's in your hands

I'll leave a note
Down in a box by your bed
And we'll never know where you've been
Or how this red flag that you...
This red flag that you...
This red flag that you...

This red flag that you hold in your hands

    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.
