Blood Red Flags

Album: World War III (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Nathan Leone told Rock Sound magazine: "We were on the fence with this one forever because we couldn't settle on a verse strategy. Mateo [Camargo, guitar] had this raw rock riff and we kept over thinking it trying to make it more interesting but at the end of the day, the more we took out, the better it got. It's one of the heavier tracks on the record which are always my favorite."
  • Nathan Leone explained the song's meaning to Rock Sound magazine: "Lyrically it's about heading straight into a situation you know is bad for you. As if your heart and subconscious can see it crystal clear but your mind denies it I think so many things are lost in psychological torment as opposed to just letting them happen."
