"Writing's On The Wall" as written by and Jeffrey John/martin Burrows....
[Chorus]
When it bends you try to walk a straight line
Something more for less and in the meantime
It changes shape and shifts it takes you over
Its just a warning sign

Because the writing's on the wall
The writing's on the wall

You make a deal you swear that its the last time
No sudden moves or else your soul will be mine
And when you dance you're dancing with the devil
Its just a warning sign,
You're running out of time

You can't relate, you still escape
Because you think you've seen it all
You're right on time until you find
They've just been waiting for the fall

Because the writing's on the wall
The writing's on the wall

[Chorus]

You can't relate, you still escape
Because you think you've seen it all
You're right on time until you find
They've just been waiting for the fall

The Writing's on the wall
The Writing's on the wall
It's seven-hundred stories tall
The Writing's on the wall

Take your time it's a state of mind
Take your time just until you find
Take your time it's a state of mind

The Writing's on the wall
The Writing's on the wall
It's seven-hundred stories tall
The Writing's on the wall

    General CommentI think it's about being at the end of your tether, having nowhere else to go and having to turn and face the music. The phrase 'the writing on the wall' means a sign of impending disaster or danger., so I think it's about having to turn and face it. This also matches with the line about warning signs.

    General CommentActually, the Term "The Writing's On The Wall" refers to something that is blatantly obvious. (In other words that its impossible to miss, because its staring you in the face) I think that the song may be about alcoholism, such as the like "When at best, you try to walk a straight line." Or when he says "Something More for Less, and in the meantime" the something more could be respect and your life, just for a bit of happiness while you're drunk.
