"When Girls Telephone Boys" as written by and Chino/carpenter Moreno....
Always the same old taste just new injury
Well I'll wear the claws if you'd like that
Yeah if you'd like that we can ride on a black horse
A great new wave Hesparian death horse
I can call you when I get back
Yeah when I get back I will call
But don't speak, don't say nothing
In case we ever do meet again
Something's wrong with you
Well I hope we never do meet again
You always sharpen your teeth 'cause you're like that
And you're like that everytime you pull heart back
And her compact's carving deeper in your lay
I would call but I forget where the phone is at
Guess I'll talk to you when I get back
Yeah when I get back I will call
But don't speak, don't say nothing
In case we ever should meet again
There are some things wrong with you
I hope we never do meet again
I hope we never do meet again
I hope we never do meet again
Something's wrong with you... and I hope we never do meet again

    General CommentI think when he says "something's wrong with you" he's talking in the girls perspective. As if a girl said that to him once before and it's echoing in his head. Best song on "Deftones"

    General CommentChino is talkign bout another toxic relationship. It seems the girl is always callign him and he considers her an annoyences. The line "You always sharpen your teeth 'cause you're like that" means shes alwas getting ready to attack him emotionaly.

    "and you're like that everythime you pull heart back"
    means her affection never lasts

    From the sound of it this relationship was realy bad and chino wanted it to end bad.

    Otherwise one great song on an already great album.

    "Its Heli-Sensitive" which makes no sense but sounds like the wierd stuff deftones would put in there albums.

    General Commenti think Noble35 is right, just being the position of wanting a realationship to end, yet being to weak to actully just cut it off. i think when chino is screaming "yeah, when i get back i will call" he is just sort of letting the relationship string along until the end where he finds the strenght to just drop the girl's ass.

    General CommentDefinitely one of my favorites on 'Deftones'. This has to be the heaviest song on the album, hands down. The girl at the beginning of the song is obviously talking about a condom, since one of them says something about 'this thing's worth it' and she says 'it's hella sensitive'. Plus, she's breathing hard.

    General CommentIt's about a fight on the telephone with a crazed lover.

    I love the lyrics, "I'll wears the claws if you like that, and if you like that we can ride on a black horse." Basically he's saying if you wanna start shit, bring it, I'm fucking ready.
