"Pink Cellphone" as written by and Chino/carpenter Moreno....
Belief in the one true power

Can't stop the sound
Can you?
Can't stop the sound
Can't stop the sound
I can't stop you
X your eyes
Let the tape roll
Aren't you gonna get sick
'Cause that's right
Good work!
X your eyes
Let the tape roll
Belief in the one true power
Can't stop the sound
Can you?
Can't stop the sound
I can't stop you
X your eyes
Let the tape roll
Aren't you gonna get sick
'Cause that's right
Good work!
X your eyes
I'll tell you, wait

So your troubles continue to multiply and to grow in a direct result of your being misguided. Deceived. Misdirected. Or fooled. All themes are variations of the basic ego gloried wide theme in which you follow the gospel truth.

....

Pursuing the wrong ideals and goals that leads you into sickness. unto.. ??.. and from this sickness sprang the belief in the one true power. (Yes.) That cure that promised to erase the symptoms that stood between you and your goal. That's seductive to hear them offer relief and comfort without disturbing the faulty system of your beliefs. (Beliefs) Belief in the one true power. (Beliefs) Forever and ever, one nation under (ego self). The father, the son, and the holy (ego self). In Jesus name. Amen.
(10 seconds silence)
Greasy filthy hand jobs in truck stop restrooms. Hot Carling? All over my chest Hot Carling? I turned hat into a verb. I hope you appreciate it. Car wing. Hot Carling Academy. It's the school where you go to learn how to butt fuck. It's In England. They don't have blowjobs there because they're uncircumcised and that is just disgusting. So they have to butt fuck. Which is also disgusting, because that extra foreskin trapped all the germs and the poop and the butt-fucking residue. It's sin. And that's why British people have bad teeth. Amen.

    General CommentWow, I'm suprised no ones managed to get what's going on here...

    Can't stop the sound
    Can you?
    Let the tape roll

    This is refering to the song itself, it has such a soft, seductive sound, and it entices you to keep listening, so you let the "tape" roll.

    Aren't you gonna get sick?

    This is referring to the last minute of the song, which apparently made the vast majority of you sick. They're asking you "why are you still listening? aren't you going to get sick?"

    So your troubles continue to multiply and to grow in a direct result of your being misguided. Deceived. Misdirected. Or fooled. All themes are variations of the basic ego gloried wide theme in which you follow the gospel truth.

    You were misguided into listening to this entire song, even it's filthy ending. Look at all the trouble it caused here, and how all the negative comments multiplied, all because you were decieved.

    It's essentially a commentary on modern day life, and how everyone is so easily misguided, you pursue the wrong ideals and goals, and essentially fuck yourself over.

    The title Pink Cellphone refers to how commercialized our society has become. Who the fuck really needs a pink cellphone?

    Song Meaninga "Hot Carl" is when you toss a girl into a bathtub, and shit all over her chest. it's like a "Hot Lunch", but in a bathtub. she turned it into a verb by adding the "-ing" to the end of it. that's also why she said "all over my...".

    poop seemed to be the subject of that last minute, so it seemed only logical that this is what was being referenced.

    the first reversal is "ttub-kcuf", which is easy to tell. the other 2 are both "gnikcufttub". try it in Audacity for yourself! it's fun for the whole family :)

    and for anyone who doubted that this was just one big laugh gag, listen to the laughter in the background when she talks about "Hot Carling". even Chino can be heard!

    as for the title of the song, her lyrics were recorded on a Pink Cellphone. it's why the sound is degraded in quality when compared with the singing, though those of you with only a shitty mp3 compressed track might not notice like we audiophiles do ;P

    General CommentIf you find the last minute of the song to be "immature" in any way, you're missing the point. The song basically stops, and she totally shifts from speaking of faith to disgust. The last minute serves a purpose.

    General Commentgod, you guys are weak. are you that easily disgusted by the last minute of this song? how the fuck do you live then, cause there's some sicker shit out int he world, jesus christ.

    and dont say how different this song is from the other deftones songs because this song and 'lucky you' from the self titled cd are similar. and btw, chino can put whatever song he wants on his album, because he's part of the band.

    I think the song is ok, but you people are taking it WAAAAAAY out of the context.

    General CommentMy guess is that because so many of the people who like this song liked it right up until the last minute, Chino hit his mark. I'll admit, I found it extremely jarring and even a little shocking (even after seeing - and loving - The Aristocrats) when listening to it, but I think that was what Chino was going for. It was to shock the listener. Maybe it's some form of criticism against those who claim to be Christians (or any religion) yet don't live like it at all. Maybe it's about hypocrisy. Who knows? All I know is that I liked the effectiveness this song has. And to those of you in the UK who were offended by this... grow up. I'm sure it wasn't meant to be taken seriously. As for the title... have Deftones/Team Sleep titles ever really meant anything, for the most part?

    General CommentIt's all about hypocrisy, the people who criticize this song need to take a step back.

    From purity to total disgust, right? So the point is that you're disgusted. So the song has a point, because the loss of purity could be anything from the desensitizing of sex to the uprising of consumerism (explaining "pink cellphone").... And then people say they liked it until the last minute, which is exactly the idea. People digged their "pink cellphones" for so long that now when we're so disgusted by it and most people reject it we've moved into total disgust for the Paris Hiltons of the world etc.. This is one thought provoking song. If you think that some of the lyrics are "random" then you need to think a bit harder. it's meant to make you think. I'll admit, i haven't figured out most of the lyrics yet but I've got a few under-developed ideas. The song has a purpose and it's serving it. The proof is in each and every one of these comments.

    OR is the "randomness" in itself significant? Maybe the lyrics are random, and only there to create the sense of purity - the "one true power" on one side of the song, and total disgust on the other. It reflects the title because, well, a pink cellphone serves the same purpose as a silver one, so the pink is pretty random but it's there because people liked a different colour, its a promotion of consumerism. A PINK cellphone serves no better than any other. These lyrics could be put any other way and still send the same message.

    Ingenious, really.

    General CommentMaybe if you check out who Anne Hardy is.. I mean, I think that the last part of the song, unecessary obviously, is just...anne saying the shit she wanted. And chino thought it was funny as hell.
    Sorry all the british people but I thought it was funny too xD just don't take it seriously. And i really don't think it was like the "meant to be" theory.

    My InterpretationI find it amusing that about half of you are completely disgusted and offended by the ending of the song. Lighten up. Yes, I almost gagged too when I started listening to what she was saying the first time, but it does serve a point. Generally, writers don't go out of their way to do something so off-putting without a reason.... unless they base their music around shocking material (ramstein, most of hip hop, etc) but in this case, it's there for a reason.

    Really, this whole song is about religion and self righteousness. The song mentions how belief in the one true power (any religion) is really just belief in the "ego self", or belief that you're superior or that you want to be superior. The song refers to the aloof tone many religious types have, as well as their aloof attitude (holier than thou) that many people in religion seem to exude. In the end, this attitude just leads to hypocrisy, insulting others in an almost horrifically vulgar manner, while being ridiculously vulgar yourself, as seen by the very, very indignant, ignorant, vulgar, yet oddly prudish tone the outro takes. One obvious real-world example would be the whole gay-marriage argument. Though not every religious person is against it, the vocal uber-conservitives often talk about it in a very, very vulgar, offensive, and disgusting manner, all the while still thinking that they're better than what they're talking about.

    The opening likely refers to how people won't listen to the point of the song. You're just going to listen, let the tape roll because you like the song, even though you don't like what the song says at the end; just ignore the message, listen to the song, and let the tape roll.
