"Hello Operator" as written by and Joe/taylor Stampley....
hello operator i would like to place a call
to the pale grey telephone that is hanging on her wall
i know this sounds crazy but could you patch me through
so she does not here me ringing
i will wait I've got nothing else to do

when she finally picks me up checking for a dial tone
to finger in the number of her new lover's telephone
i will be resting on the earlobe that i used to hunt and peck
i will slowly wrap myself around her pretty little neck

i'll begin the explanation as to why she cannot breath
you should not have been unfaithful
you should not have ever fucked with me

    General Commenti thought the line "you should know i've been unfaithful" was always "you should not have been unfaithful"

    in my head it makes more sense in the context of the song.

    the whole she's calling a lover and he is spiteful, so he cuts off her air, and while he's killing her he says "fuck you for cheating on me."

    i just love the way bazans voice sounds at the end of this song.

    General Commentmy brother made an interesting comment after listening to this song that I rather like.

    "Dave Bazan remembers one thing that a lot of christians forget- that God can be jealous."

    General CommentI really like how clam he is the entire song till he says "You should not have ever fucked with me." His tone really wouldn't sound that vengeful or angry if he hadn't been so, controlling, I guess in the rest of the song.

    My OpinionReally disturbing and violent song... makes it quite powerful, though. Really well-written.
