Cause For Concern Lyrics

So what's it to you?
You're down another 8 ball
I haven't even got a cue
And you look dreadful
When you jump to what you'll resort to
Singing, "Chance, we ain't gonna hurt you"
When there's fuck-all-else to do

You could eat the foam from...

    I'm not certain, but to me it sounds like a dysfunctional relationship, where specifically the girl is abusive to Wilbur. The girl can do almost anything to hurt Wilbur physically, but because of how society currently stands, if wilbur were to complain about it to anyone, people would shrug it off. "Theres no cause for concern"

    I might be wrong but I think its about a girl who suffered trauma and the girl is scared to hurt him and he is saying that she won't. Idk im bad at explaining things

    So essentially my interpretation comes from the line “we will eat the foam from the head rests”. Basically the song is about Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571, in which a group of people, notably the Uruguayan rugby team and their supporters, crashed into a mountain range and had to survive for 10 days in the Andes with limited food.
    Essentially what happened was after going through the initial food they began eating the plane, such as the foam from the head rests and eventually partook in voluntary cannibalism to stay alive. Hence the cause for concern, of someone killing and eating the other such as kicking the teeth into their head or hurting eachother for food.

    I just want to say that it says »Chance«, not »Charles«. And I agree with the theory of the-toxic-relationship. Maybe he loves »you« (the partner) too much. Because of this, he's »ok« with the wrong behaviour-»there's no cause for concern« because he'll love them anyway.

    It sounds to me as if its about a toxic relationship where the other partner had a drug addiction, specifically to cocaine. When it refers to "your down another 8-ball" it can be used as another term for cocaine and shows that the partner is taking the drug once again. Due to the affects of the drug, it causes the partner to act out with violence. When it states "When you jump to what you'll resort to" it refers to them acting in abusive manner. It seems that the partner wants help in their addiction but struggles. When it says "You look so dreadful" it refers to the partner being unhappy about their abusive acts but doesn't know how to get help . On the other hand in Wilbur's pov, he loves and cares the other so much even though he gets mistreated. When Wilbur says "There's no cause for concern" it's like he is trying to excuse the partners abusive actions and saying it everything is fine between the two. When it says "Charles, we ain't gonna hurt you" is like his partner promising him that they will stop their abusive actions but breaks the promise every time.

    I love this song, but Im kinda unsure of the meaning... so part of me agrees with the 'abusive partner' theory but i think it can be about a couple, in which the guy's (wilburs pov) friend told him that this significant other is not good for him. in this version, the course would be about how he ignors the red flags. the 'we aint gonna hurt you' and 'Charles, we aint gonna hurt you' parts are about his previous relationships and the current one, as all of them told him they're nit gonna hurt him but he always got his heart broken.

    I'm not sure if anyone will agree but to me it sounds like it's about a problem of being bullied. Specifically because of the line (Singing, "Charles, we ain't gonna hurt you.") Which to me sounds like more than one person saying in a mocking way that they're definitely not gonna hurt whoever Charles is in the song

    I thinks its about a couple and the husband keeps on getting abused by her wife, but nobody cares or believes it. He eventually gets used to the abuse and starts considering it as a routine.
