"Picture" as written by Michael Maida, Jeremy Taggart, Duncan Coutts, Steve Mazur and Bob Rock....
Waiting by the telephone,
Breathing through a giant rubber hose.
God only knows
Photographs of you and me,
Pictures of the friends,
You used to know,
Where did they go?

[Chorus]
Don't take my picture down
Don't erase everything that we had.
Don't think I'd let you down
I might be gone, but we'll meet again
Can't find you
So I'll call your name

Riding on the satellite
Sun faded and sweaty, but that's all right,
'Cause I'm still alive
I'm stranded in this memory,
Your mouth is wide open, you can't scream
Oh you can't scream

[Chorus]

Please pick up the phone,
Please pick up the phone,
Please pick up the phone,
Please pick up the phone,
I wanted you to know,
I wanted you to know,
I wanted you to know,
I wanted you to know.

[Chorus]

    General CommentBest song on Healthy In Paranoid Times! Sheer brilliance. It's the 4am/Thief/Are You Sad/Bring Back The Sun of this album! Absolutely GODLY! Thank God this album didn't turn out like the abomination called Gravity (which was Good, but come on, OLP is so much better than that). Glad to see Raine back to his ol' school feel of raw singing.

    General CommentWhere have you guys heard the full songs? I've heard the clips and everything, but not the full finished versions.

    Maybe I'll take a look on the Clumsy Congress or the Hub.

    Or maybe you've all just heard this song live or something.

    I do agree that this album will be their best on yet by far.

    General CommentAre you sure? Cause 11 of the 12 songs have been posted by the same guy.

    I bet if I looked hard enough on Kazaa I could find them, they've had to have leaked out somehow, but I don't have Kazaa and I probably wouldn't anyways. I'll just wait two weeks for the CD to come out.

    General CommentI got it from the person that leaked it, and the poster of the songs' lyrics got it from me.

    General CommentThis song is nice. Some songs on HIPT are pretty boring though. Angels/Losing/Sleep,Picture,WipeThatSmileOffYourFace,Apology,and Al Genina are the best ones in my opinion. Where are you isn't bad..but it's not like "wow"

    General CommentBy far my least favorite song. It's not bad or anything, it's just really bland to me. Just my opinion though.
