The world’s going crazy but what can we do
Confusion and madness all around you
Read the signs, heed the warning

Enemy aircraft darken the sky
Sirens are screaming “We’re all going to die!”
Read the signs, heed the warning

A world that’s in trouble is no place to be
So come from the heavens, come set us free
Read the signs, heed the warning

  • George wrote this song on 20th September 1986, the same day that he wrote two others, which was a rare thing in those days.
  • The key is A major and the guitar solo is played backwards.
  • The synthesizer parts were all recorded in one long take after deciding which sounds to use. They all come from a Roland synth that may have belonged to The Sicillians and was still at Paul’s Howell Road studio. It had similarities to the Wasp which George owned, in that it was a digital synth with analogue controls.
  • When played live this song required heavy use of the smoke machine and strobe where possible.
