The song "The Red" by Chevelle is about a person who often has anger problems. For example, when it talks about 'seeing red again,' it means he's getting angry and losing control. The color red often refers to anger. When it talks about asking who makes him see the red, it's most likely from the point of view of a person he is seeking help to control his anger, a counselor or someone of that nature. They are asking who, or what makes him angry, what their triggers are. .
