Company Car Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Mike was right
When he said I'd put up a fight to be someone
A fight to be me

But see now, I'm down
Under the pavement of Capitals Hills
And lowercase people

As time rolls by my dreams have become
That which is attainable
Now what I'm looking for

I've got the company car
I'm the one swinging at two below par
Yeah, I've become one with the ones
That I've never believed in
But I've got the company car

Hey, I'm the king of things
I've always despised
I'm the gingerbread man who got eaten alive

I'm half baked, I'm fake
But see I've got hotels
On Park Place and Boardwalk

And two hundred bucks
I pass go but, oh, life's taken it's toll
Have I won monopoly to forfeit my soul?

But see, I've got the company car
I'm the one swinging at two below par
Yeah, I've become one with the ones
That I've never believed in
But I've got the company car, yeah

All the kings horses at the foot of the wall
They're taking pictures of the man who's lost
All of his masks of pretension

He's got two faces left
His is the one that he hides
On the left behind that smile

Hiding tears and fear
That burn like an engine
It drives him away from the ones that he loves

Mike was right, hey Mike
We're one and the same
We're the faceless combatants in the loneliest game

Ah but say, I'll wave as I'm driving by
With that smirk in my eye, yelling
"Hey, I'm such a mess, check me out!"

I've got the company car
I'm the one swinging at two below par
Yeah, I've become one with the ones
That I've never believed in
But I've got the company car

Yeah, check me out
I've got the company car
Yeah, check me out
I've got the company car, yeah
