"Overrated" as written by Lenny Wolf, John Burt Frank and Rick J. Steier....
Well I think the time has come
To tell you how I feel about everything
That's been inside my mind
Since the day we crossed
The line into this real life fantasy
'Cause I poured my heart into
The last 3 years of wondering
What I should do
Should I cash the check
And trade in what I thought I knew
Your promises don't help to make it easier

'Cause the last thing that I need is somebody like you
To push me around and tell me what to do
I know there's a time and place where you can call the shots
But it't not here

'Cause I poured my heart into
The last 3 years of wondering
What I should do
Should I cash the check
And trade in what I thought I knew
Your promises don't help to make it easier

Because the last thing that I need is somebody like you
To push me around and tell me what to do
I know there's a time and place where you can call the shots
But it't not here

'Cause I think this whole life is just overrated
This whole life is too complicated
This whole life is just overrated now
This whole life is just overrated
This whole life is too complicated
This whole life is just overrated now

I don't remember what you said to me that night
So I just signed the dotted line

'Cause now I find out this whole life is just overrated
This whole life is too complicated
This whole life is just overrated now
This whole life is just overrated
This whole life is too complicated
This whole life is just overrated now

    General Commenti just really really like this song.

    i think it's about a 3 year relationship he's had w/ someone special to him and now he's re-evaluating everything. eh, but i could be very, very wrong.. so whatever.

    Allister kicked ass on the warped tour! and i can't wait to see them again when they come to jersey next week! ^_^

    General CommentI am pretty sure that this song is about allister's three year relationship with ::cough cough:: drive-thru records. I like drive thru records a lot, they have great bands, but they aren't living up to their potential.

    General Comment drive thru records is my favorite record label i have posters of them. including, the starting line, new found glory, fenix tx, allister, the early november. and other cool bands in drive thru records. i love this song.

    General CommentGREAT new song by allister. im pretty sure My Name Is Ben is right though, sposedly drive-thru doesnt treat them too well. big surprise. they do have some awesome bands on the label but i heard they fall short on giving them due attention (hence allister's member loss). they signed with MCA in 99, so the 3 year thing makes sense.

    either way, they rock. im seein em in NJ too. right on

    go out and get Last Stop Suburbia when it's out
