"The Warning" is a song hinted at in PDF lyric sheets of With Teeth. The song's lyrics were not legible on the PDF. It is not known if it even was recorded or not, along with "My Dead Friend," "Message To No One," and "The Life You Didn't Lead," the latter two also hinted on various posters and PDFs. "My Dead Friend" was hinted at during an interview pre-With Teeth.

When the 2019 Definitive Edition vinyl of With Teeth was released, the PDF was re-created as part of the packaging. Lyrics to "The Warning" were made legible and it was finally revealed that "The Warning" from Year Zero has its origins in the track from the With Teeth sessions.

Interestingly, the line "celebration of ignorance" was later used in "Ahead Of Ourselves" from Bad Witch.


  You can take this as a warning
  You can take this as a sign
  He is already among you
  Waiting for his time
  And it is coming
  Yes indeed
  A celebration of ignorance
  Self-importance and greed
  The virus will eat the host
  The virus will eat the host
  Your time is tick tick ticking away
  Your time is tick tick ticking away
  And you won't do a thing
  It's already over
  Tick tock
  Tick tock
