"Call Back When I'm Honest" as written by and Gillespie....
Get in, get in, it feels like it's almost time
Acting like this you know you'll get the first prize
Sickness makes us larger than life
This makes us larger, larger

Here is a message for your phone
Wanted you to know, this is getting out of hand

Drinking, drinking, I'm feeling all so slow now
Waiting, waiting for that feeble last round
This all makes us smaller than life
This makes us smaller, smaller

Here is a message for your phone
Wanted you to know, this is getting out of hand
Here is a note then for your book
Open up and take a look, inside is filled with lies

Be what you want to be
When you're doing what you do
Feel what you want to feel
When you're coming so unglued

Do not make you answer
Speak your thoughts right now

Here is a message for your phone
Wanted you to know, this is getting out of hand
Here is a note then for your book
Open up and take a look, inside is filled with lies

Here is a message for your
Here is a note then for your
This is getting out, this is getting out

    General Commenti think song is about someone who is losing control and their trying to self-medicate to forget about their problems or something along those lines...

    General CommentIt's about someone who's is being consumed by their huge drinking consunmption. And losing their morals, memory, themselves.

    "When you're coming so unglued"
    "Here is a message.."
    "Be what you want to be.."
    etc. etc.

    General CommentI think this song is about another person acting…fake? Acting like something else because he says “acting like this you know you’ll get the first prize”. Then he is drinking and leaving a message saying that she/he/whoever/whatever is getting out of hand. He writes a note for their book, showing which side is filled with lies. Hes saying to be what they want to be when theyre doing what they do while they just keep getting out of hand. Argh - his lyrics are too amazing to try to put into any other words to help each other understand.

    General Commenti think that it is about someone seeing a friend's life fall apart.

    pride always comes before the fall
    and that's basically explained in the begininning about how sickness makes us larger..

    then that pride leads to the breakdown of other things..

    "becoming unglued", drinking, lieing about your condition.



    ps. i'm personally in love with this album.

    General CommentAlright, no one likes 'correction nazis', but I've noticed that some of the mistakes in these lyrics could matter to the meaning of the song, so I've decided to enlighten you all. lol well here you go, the song lyrics according to the lyric booklet, and confirmed by my ears... lol:


    Get in, get in, it feels like it's almost time
    Acting like it, you know you'll get the first prize
    Sickness makes us larger than life

    This makes us larger, larger

    Here, here's a message for your phone
    I wanted you to know this is getting out of hand

    Drinking, drinking, I'm feeling oh so slow
    Now waiting, waiting for that feeble last round
    This all makes us smaller than life

    This makes us smaller, smaller

    Here, here's a message for your phone
    I wanted you to know this is getting out of hand
    Here, here's an idea for your book
    Open up and take a look inside
    It is filled with lies

    Be what you wanna be
    When you're doing what you do
    Free what you wanna free
    When you're coming so unglued
    Don't act like you have to speak your thoughts right now

    Here, here's a message for your phone
    I wanted you to know this is getting out of hand
    Here, here's an idea for your book
    Open up and take a look inside
    It is filled with lies

    Here, here's a message for your...
    Here, here's an idea for your...
    This is getting out...
    This is getting out...


    *FYI--some of the major corrections are the "an idea" instead of "a note then", "inside/It is filled with lies" instead of "This side is filled with lies", "Free what you wanna free" instead of "Feel what you wanna feel", and "Don't act like you have to" instead of "Do not make you answer", just in case you can't see them or don't want to change all of it.

    Anyways, absolutely love The Almost, and this album, and this song, and every song!!! (I'll think about the meaning later.)

    Peace!
