Warning Lyrics - Green Day

Review The Song (8)



This is a public service announcement, this is only a test
Emergency evacuation protest
May impair your ability to operate machinery
Can't quite tell just what it means to me
Keep out of reach of children, don't you talk to strangers
Get your philosophy from a bumper sticker

Warning live without warning
I said warning, live without warning

without, alright.

Better homes and safety-sealed communities
Did you remember to pay the utility?
Caution, police line, you better not cross
Is the cop or am i the one that's really dangerous?
Sanitation, expiration date, pushing everything
Or shut up and be a victim of authority

Warning, live without warning
sponsored links
Say warning, live without warning
Say warning, live without warning
Say warning, live without warning

Without alright

Better homes and safety-sealed communities
Did you remember to pay the utility?
Caution, police line, you better not cross
Is the cop or am i the one that's really dangerous?
Sanitation, expiration date, question everything
Or shut up and be a victim of authority

Warning, live without warning
Say warning, live without warning
Say warning, live without warning
Say warning, live without warning


This is a public service announcement this is only a test

Warning | Reviewer: Lauren Armstrong | 5/20/13

I think this song is absolutely distructive, in the best way possible. It's messing with my head... in a really good way... and i love it so much. I really dont see why people dislike this song, it's so relaxing and calming. The tune sticks with you for life. I love it when Billie goes, "without, alright." Since he has the most beautiful voice.

"Rules are for Squares" is right... | Reviewer: Lisa | 9/4/09

I kind of like this Green Day more... the ones who went against the mainstream and insulted George W. Bush with every ounce of their freaking hearts! I loved the ones who could quickly switch from headbanging rock to soft acoustic songs like these that you hear in commercials. Now, it seems like they're just trying to fit in. And I liked their old music more... Longview, Stuart and the Ave., Basket Case... Those 3 songs, along with loads of other old songs, can't compete with any of the songs from 21st Century Breakdown... maybe they could compete with SOME from American Idiot, but not most...

I'm just saying, this old Green Day was MUCH better, and I totally miss them.

Expiration Date | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/18/09

My god, does toothpaste have an expiration date? That's like putting an expiry date on soap, fer chrissakes.

Or beer. Why is there an expiry date on beer? You buy some, you drink it, you buy some more

Best before: lunch...

The reason cops get you for Graffiti is just that. It's vandalism. Would you like it if somebody spray painted your house? Or maybe your Car?

To the City, a Dank Bridge is just like their car.
A miss-colored Wall is their house.

This song is very Fight Club-ish.

There are the people who run their lives by the product only you, and when the product owns you, the corporations own you. And if you let them own you, you don't form your own opinion, but instead, follow anthers philosophy, because the bumper sticker told you.

question everything | Reviewer: Raven | 8/7/08

"...question eveything/Or shut up and be a victim of authority" is my favorite line, if only for the fact that it's so damn true. How many times have you actually questioned a really ridiculous rule? [ie expiration dates on toothpaste? I mean, seriously. It's toothpaste.] And how many times have you been given a jackass answer like: "Because I said so", "just 'cause", "I don't know", et cetera, or (my personal all-time favorite): "Shut up, punk."
I love this song just because it throws everything right back at those figures of authority.

Living by the rules | Reviewer: Stephen | 7/15/08

The song is meant to express how everything we do isn't always necessary and how rules confine our right to express ourselves be it verbally, socially or artistcally. As a graphitti artist the line "Is the cop or am I the one that's really dangerous?" appeals to me most because my art never hurts anything, It livens up dank bridges or drainage lines yet cops act as though if they didn't stop every little thing, Regardless of how miniscule the offense the world would come crashing down. I would not go so far as to say it advocates anarchy and rebellion but rather to express yourself and be yourself no matter what it means.

AWESOMENESS | Reviewer: punkmonkey | 8/8/05
