While everything about Warning Sign looks good on paper the track is just kind of…meh.

The song starts out well enough.  The funky bassline is nice and catches your attention right away and the vocals are actually pretty nice.  By the time they hit the bridge and the tinkling chimes come in, you are hooked.  The problem is the chorus.  There just feels like there’s something missing and a some unnecessary theremin added in.  The lead up to it feels like the song is going somewhere that it never gets to and it makes your attention wane.  It took several listens for those of us who listened to get through the song in it’s entirety without our attention drifting halfway through.  Even though the production for the final bridge is dope and probably should have been chosen for the chorus, it’s just not enough to bring us back in.

While we actually get why this song was chosen as the lead single (it is the most upbeat and traditionally Teen Top-sounding of the EP’s tracks), and it actually fits in with the more mellow direction they are attempting to go in this time around, songs like Day and Don’t Drink would have been better openers.

Lyrics:
You wanna play girl?
No more games,
Now it’s over

How long did you guess you could fool me?
You are caught in a trap that I accidentally put

Your mind was on sake, unstable
It’s trapped already baby
You can’t hide anymore lady

Oh, our eyes met
Who was that guy standing next to you
You passed me without hesitating
Don’t avoid me from now
Won’t stop, you won’t stop

Your cruel excuses are making me mad
Your messy hair
Unbuttoned shirts is telling me
You shake your hands cuz your play is over
I won’t be fooled again
I should get away from you baby

What have changed you seriously?
Where did you hide
your confidence
Why are you keep crying?
Your words are all from your scenario

I was being played by your play and that’s this story
Were you even upset baby
No you were enjoying this

You don’t know. There isn’t a wall in the world
There’s no warning sign that you are dreaming of
I know what’s inside of your innocent looking eyes
Don’t pretend you don’t know them
won’t stop, you won’t stop

Your cruel excuses are making me mad
Your messy hair
Unbuttoned shirts is telling me
You shake your hands cuz your play is over
won’t be fooled again
I should get away from you baby

I can’t go back
I can’t stop either oh
my heart is heavy

Everything you did, every single thing
When I look back, I can’t forgive you. But I just can’t
Your shaking eyes are shaking my heart now what

Your cruel excuses are making me mad
Your messy hair
Unbuttoned shirts is telling me
You shake your hands cuz your play is over
I won’t be fooled again
I should get away from you baby

I can forgive you once
Please baby help me
I can’t go back. I can’t stop either oh

Once is a mistake
Let’s get over it together

I can’t go back. I can’t stop either oh
