How to make text take the shape of a container?

I want to make my text into the shape of a rectangle (just two words--one on top of the other), which fill up a mask but do not spill outside the bounds of that mask. It's hard to describe what I mean; I need the text to look distorted, like it's trying to bulge out of its container but maintains a rounded rectangle shape. Is there a way to achieve something like this in Ae? I've played a bit with spline paths and making text follow the splines; this is sort of a different, but related concept, I just don't know how to do it. All suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
