Nine Inch Nails The Warning Lyrics

Last updated: 03/14/2011 11:00:00 AM

Some say it was a warning
Some say it was a sign
I was standing right there
When it came down from the sky
The way it spoke to us
You felt it from inside
Said it was up to us
Up to us to decide

You've become a virus
That's killing off its host
We've been watching you with all of our eyes
And what you seem to value most

So much potential
Or so we used to say
Your greed, self importance, and your arrogance
You piss it all away

We heard her cry
We've come to intervene
You will change your ways and you will make amends
Or we will wipe this place clean

Your time is tick-tick-ticking away

what I think | Reviewer: Emma | 3/14/11

I think this is about 2012, as some of us think as it's gonna be. He says: It is up to us to deside which side we choose.
As we are living right now (or some of us) we're becoming a virus that's killing of it's host (the earth). It's about the wrong way we are living but we can choose how it's gonna be; if we want to change it or go on in this way (what will lead to the end of the world).



The Warning | Reviewer: Adam | 1/26/10

This sounds to me like a warning from an alien race that has been observing the human race and it's relationship with the earth. Humanity (the virus) is destroying the Earth (the host) by way of pollution, deforestation and other means. The alien tells to 'change your ways... or we will wipe this place clean', thereby killing the virus and saving the host.
