"Emergency Call" as written by and Matthew Albert Costa....
Skin's turning green, eyes are turning yellow
The Doctor stays rich because I'm a sickly fellow
Got the hypochondriac blues
I need your medicine to soothe
Creams and pills they've got nothing on you

Well call me the Doctor and give me the cure
Easily obsess on an open sore
Doctor, Doctor, can't get no relief
This losing sleep is misery
Won't you come and rescue me?

Spent the last week in my bed started feeling symptoms
My pshychiatrist fills me up with a new prescription
Tell me where I went wrong
It felt too good for too long
Honey you got the remedy for me

Well Doctor Doctor can't get no relief
And this loosing sleep is misery

Well call me the Doctor and give me the cure
Easily obsess on an open sore
I don't want to be sick no more

My heart's made of glass mama don't you break it
I knew that I made a mistake when I let you take it
Now this is pain only for you
I need your medicine to soothe
Creams and pills they've dont nothing on you

Well call me the doctor and give me the cure
But come back mama I'm feeling withdrawal
Please take my emergency call

How long must I wait held up in depression?
I tried to erase my past, to make a good impression
But my broken horn's lost the tune
And only shattered mirrors fill my room
Fell for you and only got me down

Well Doctor Doctor come give me the cure
Easily obsess on an open sore
Doctor Doctor can't get no relief
This losing sleep is misery
Won't you come and rescue me?

    General CommentIm pretty sure this songs describing going through several relationships and after each one's over the person feels depressed and rejected, like being sick as to where a doctor would be needed.
    then he finds a new girl and im not sure if its this blunt but it seems like he talks to her about his last relationship to try and see what he did wrong and inevitably he ends up falling for this girl he's opening up too

    "Spent the last week in my bed started feeling symptoms
    My pshychiatrist fills me up with a new prescription
    Tell me where I went wrong
    It felt too good for too long
    Honey you got the remedy for me"

    then towards the ending of the song things start becoming sour with this new girl and the whole vicious cycle repeats itself..
    but yeah thats just my take on the song, im sure theres thousands of others.
    i'm shocked no one else has posted anything!
    Matt Costa is rad. =]
