company calls lyrics – death cab for cutie

i’ll take the best of your bad moods and dress them up to make a better you,
’cause all the company calls amount to one paycheck.
i’d squeeze a heart through my fingertip but i type too slow to make expressions stick.
and it’s like tv with a microchip.
set your sights to sink the partyline, ’cause it’s so tired.
set your sights! destroy this mock-shrine, ’cause it’s so tired.
let’s cut our losses at both ends and aim your car away from all our friends,
leaving the dishes stacked in the sink.
i’d keep a distance ’cause the complications cloud it all,
and mail a postcard sending grettings from the eastern bloc.
synapse to synapse… possoibilities will thin or fade.
your wedding figurines… i’d melt so i could drink them in.
