"No Phone" as written by Vince Di Fiore, John M Mc Crea and Xan Mccurdy....
No phone No phone I just want to be alone today
No phone no phone
Ringing stinging

Jerking like a nervous bird
Rattling up against his cage
Calls to me throughout the day
See the feathers fly

No phone No phone I just want to be alone today
No phone No phone
No phone no phone I just want to be alone today

Rhyming chiming got me working all the time
Gives me such a worried mind
Now I don't want to seem unkind
But god (it's such a crime)

No phone No phone I just want to be alone today
No phone no phone
No phone No phone I just want to be alone today
No phone no phone

Shaking quaking
Waking me when I'm asleep
Never lets me go too deep
Summons me with just one beep
The price we pay is steep
I've been on fire
And yet I've still stayed frozen
So deep in the night
My smooth contemplations will always be broken
My deepest concerns will stay buried and unspoken

No I don't have any change but here's a few subway tokens
No phone No phone I just want to be alone today
No phone No phone
No phone no phone I just want to be alone today
No phone no phone
No phone No phone I just want to be alone today
No phone No phone

    General CommentOK, my thoughts:
    Perhaps he is actually telling the phone "NO". He is absolutely sick of the phone. He wants just one day of peace. He sees the phone as something that is continually seeking his attention and is something that is actually behaving slightly violently. The fact that it rings so much makes him almost paranoid and he has reached his limit. This is the "price" you pay for a girlfriend-she calls all the time. When he says that he has been on fire but now he stays frozen I think he is saying that he used to take it and just get mad (a feeling related to heat) but now he stays frozen and doesn't even move when he hears the phone and knows that she wants to talk. There is no benefit for him to talk to her. He can't be alone in his thoughts because he is always interrupted, he can't talk to her about anything because she keeps talking (and perhaps now he doesn't even want to tell her things anymore). The part where he sounds like he is speaking to someone asking him for money seems to me to be saying that his girlfriend is acting just like that, he has nothing more for her except something that will take her far away. And his way of giving her "a few subway tokens" is to just ignore her calls.

    General CommentI think that this song is kind of annoying, but good. Which is kind of an odd opinion. Oh well....
