The Oracle on Warning Sign

November 19, 2012 - submitted by Sanaa, Australia
Q. Yesterday's Sydney concert was absolutely amazing! But I was just wonderding, why did Chris decide to sing Warning Sign when in one of his interviews he said never wanted anything to do with that song?
I'm not complaining it was so great hearing it!
The Oracle replies:
Warning Sign has been in the set (on and off) for months during the MX Tour. Like you, I was really pleased to hear it again.
I remember being so shocked and happy to hear it again in Nice.
I know Chris wasn't keen on the song being included on AROBTTH but as for not playing it live... the band do go through phases of liking vs. disliking songs and sometimes they rediscover songs and find a new love for it.
I'm sure we've all changed our opinions on things during our lives especially with the passing of time.
It just goes to show that even if it's reported in print or captured on video/audio it can always change.

Q. Dear Oracle,
Recently you have answered a question from Stephen affirming that there's a song of AROBTTH that was "sort of dedicated to a flower". Could you tell us which is it?
Thanks a lot and greetings from Argentina!
The Oracle replies:
I'll tell you the song yeah, it's Warning Sign.

Q. I'm a HUGE Warning Sign fan. Can you please tell me where this was recorded? I know it wasn't in Sydney as the title mentions.
Thanks!
The Oracle replies:
You're right it wasn't recorded in Sydney, 2003 but 2005 in Toronto.

Lyrics

A warning sign
I missed the good part then I realized
I started looking and the bubble burst
I started looking for excuses

Come on in
I've gotta tell you what a state I'm in
I've gotta tell you in my loudest tones
That I started looking for a warning sign

When the truth is 
I miss you
Yeah the truth is 
That I miss you so

A warning sign
It came back to haunt me and I realized
That you were an island and I passed you by
And you were an island to discover

Come on in
I've gotta tell you what a state I'm in
I've gotta tell you in my loudest tones
That I started looking for a warning sign

When the truth is 
I miss you
Yeah the truth is 
That I miss you so

And I'm tired 
I should not have let you go

So I crawl back into your open arms
Yes I crawl back into your open arms
And I crawl back into your open arms
Yes I crawl back into your open arms
