"The Company Dime" as written by and Ryan Pope James Suptic....
I watched it all come crashing down
On the verge of a world profound
Standing on unstable ground
Adding insult to irony
I think it's really gonna happen this time
Calls on the company dime
Reluctance ties up the line
With irresponsibility

No matter save for a friend
No argument can amend
Irreplaceable but in the end
One star player doesn't save the team

Now you're open to attack
Our burden rests on your back
Replace, re-track responsibility

I'm still waiting for (I'm still waiting for)
You to get over this
I'm still waiting for (I'm still waiting for)
You to get over this
I'm still waiting for (I'm still waiting for)
You to get over this

Anonymous until the ending
Spent a long, long time pretending
And a longer day spent accepting
What the world ahead would store
You only learn but not believing
That the industry is unforgiving
Everything that you've been giving
Isn't what if was before

I'm still waiting for (I'm still waiting for)
You to get over this
I'm still waiting for (I'm still waiting for)
You to get over this
I'm still waiting for (I'm still waiting for)
You to get over this

Replace, re-track
Replace, re-track
Replace, re-track

I'm still waiting for (I'm still waiting for)
You to get over this
I'm still waiting for (I'm still waiting for)
You to get over this
I'm still waiting for (I'm still waiting for)
You to get over this

    General CommentNo one's comented on this song? Ah, it's an okay song. Not the best. But I do love the "I'm still waiting for, you to get over this" parts of the song.

    General CommentUnlike most people, I thought this was a good song. It's a little poppy, but it sounds really cool. I especially like how they mix a happy sounding song with semi-sad lyrics.

    General CommentI like this song a lot. I am pretty sure it is about a long distance relationship. "The calls are on the company dime" means they are using the company's phones to communicate and save money. They are living out their relationship over the phones and it's not working, they're both making mistakes. It just wasn't meant to be.

    General CommentIn terms of the sound of the song, i think its alright, but there are a few better ones, but its still awesome seeing as how its get up kids =). i really like "Anonymous until the ending, spent a long long time pretending. And a longer day spent accepting what the world ahead would store. You only learn by not believeing that the industry is unforgiving." it seems to convey, well to me at least, the feeling you get when you're so unsure of who you are, and unsure and pessimistic about the future...
