Warren Buffett on Companion Cubes:

The Enrichment Center reminds you that the Weighted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you and, in fact, cannot speak. In the event that the Weighted Companion Cube does speak, the Enrichment Center urges you to disregard its advice.

    Why does lament not have a -companion-cube option? (Or some option to point it at arbitrary external textures?)

    I saw it theorized that the Companion Cube was weighted with the body of a previous test subject. That would explain the warnings about not listening to what it says (in case the body was not completely dead), and why the achievement for completing that part of the game was called "Fratricide."
