Warning Sign

Album: Future Dust (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Matt Thomson sings about trying to get someone to face up to their self-destructive tendencies.

    You flew too close to the sun
    Watch it as it comes undone
    What a shame, try to play the game
    Thought that you were having fun


    Thomson told Kerrang: "Something can be so plain from the outside to see, but you can feel so helpless when the person doesn't acknowledge it."
