"That's Incentive" as written by Christopher Walla and Benjamin Gibbard....
You see nothing to be adored, when obsession takes it's toll
You can't place you in between the pages of fashion magazines
Paper cuts from turning pages, just like a bad dream
Is it this or that or me that makes you owe? what you can't defeat

Boiled over burning clean toward the flesh blocks? in your knees
It's a lesson that just might keep suppressing appetites
Paper cuts from turning pages, just like a bad dream
Is it this or that or me that makes you owe? what

And I live this life just to bear these scars
Will the hurt subside, if you decide?
That's it's me and you this time
Is it you that always, is it you that decides

And I live this life just to bear these scars
Will the hurt subside, if you decide?
And I live this life just to bear these scars
Will the hurt subside, if you decide?

    General Commenti like this song for that exact reason: it's not typical death cab.

    General Commentand i think i'd have to concur. it's much different and i awesome.

    i'd say it sounds like punk, but that'd probably be an insult.

    General Commentyeah, but typical death cab is still pretty awesome. I guess it's always nice to have something a little different though.

    General Commenti love the line "Will the hurt subside, if you decide?" it explained my relationship with my girlfriend at the beginning. i thought we would never start because it was so fucked up.
