Company Car - Switchfoot

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
Capitol Hills, with lower case people
As time rolls by my dreams have become
That which is attainable, but not what I'm looking for

I've got the company car
I'm the one swinging at two below par
See I've become one with the ones that I never believed in
Cuz I've got the company car, yeah

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 200 bucks I pass go
But oh, life's taken its toll
Have I won Monopoly to forfeit my soul?

I've got the company car
I'm the one swinging at two below par
See I've become one with the ones that I never believed in
Cuz I've got the company car, yeah

All the king's horses at the foot of the wall
They're taking pictures of the man who's lost all
Of his masks of pretention, he's got two fisted luck
His is the one they find someone else behind that smile

Guarding tears and fears, he burns like an engine
Driving away all the ones that he loves
Mike was right, hey Mike!
We're one and the same
We're the faceless combatants of the loneliest game
And to say I'll wave as I'm driving by
With that smirk in my eye, yelling
Hey! I'm something, man! Check me out!

I've got the company car
I'm the one swinging at two below par
See I've become one with the ones that I never believed in
Cuz I've got the company car, yeah check me out...
