Guess who calls you up sometimes and then hangs up the phone
You wonderin' if you did wrong to someone you know
I only call you when I think you won't be home
But when I hear your voice I hang up the telephone

In my imagination I know what to say
Deep in my mental antisocial games I play
I want to talk to you but I can't get past your sweet hello
And when I hear your voice I hang up the telephone

It would be quite advantageous if I could be more courageous
So many things I want to tell you, maybe someday I may just
I always call you when I'm feelin' all alone
But when I hear your voice I hang up the telephone

What do I do when I call you up? (Hang up!)
What do I do when I call you up? (Hang up!)
What do I do when I call you up? (Hang up!)
What do I do when I call you up? (Hang up!)
What do I do when I call you up? (Hang up!)

I pretend I'm talkin' and my voice sounds like a dial tone
Can't deal with it or without it, my excuse is dry as bone
I go to pieces and my blood turns into fire - ha
I'm burnin' up inside consumed by my own desire
I wanna get with you but you'll never love a liar
I am the loser - the abuser of the wire

I'm holdin' on to you by hangin' on your stiffing drone
But when I hear your voice I fall into a silent hole
I only call you when I think you won't be home
But when I hear your voice I hang up the telephone

What do I do when I call you up? (Hang up!)
What do I do when I call you up? (Hang up!)
What do I do when I call you up? (Hang up!)
What do I do when I call you up? (Hang up!)
What do I do when I call you up? (Hang up!)
Hello?

    General CommentAh, I like Ron Thal's sense of humour :) Gotta love the ending.
    This song is self-explanatory...so generally, it's about lack of self confidence, I think.
