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 dunno. This song is amazing. "Watching them fail is like watching an execution." Brilliant.

    General Commentjust a note, some of these lyrics are wrong, that I know for certain.
    when I find my lyric booklet from there album I will write the proper ones in.

    but yea this is a pretty powerful song but I can't seem to come up with a proper thought out meaning ><

    help?

    General Commenta red flag in racing means to stop the race because conditions are too dangerous. It could be something metaphorically along those lines

    General CommentFirst of all, AWESOME song!!!

    um............ i think it may have to do with something along the lines of communism.
    the communists were generalised with the colour red during the nazi time. the line 'the sound of the armies moving' could possibly relate to this during WWII. Also 'watching them fail is like watching an execution'.
    but other than that, that's about all i can figure out from this song........
