Everybody’s watching you
Breathing in your every move
Look around when the world is empty
Look around if you’re guilty

Everybody’s after you
I wait in line to touch you
Look around if you ever miss me
Look around cause it kills me

[Chorus]
It’s over
There’s nothing you can do
There’s nothing you can say
To keep me here
It’s over
You say we’re just friends
Well playing pretend to keep me here

Every night I lay in bed
I think about the things you said
Look around, I’m the one, your only
Look around it still kills me

[Chorus]

It’s over, to keep me here [4 times]

Doesn’t anyone care? [4 times]

Everybody’s watching you and counting down your every move
Look around when your heartbeat’s empty
Look around if it’s guilty

It’s over
You say we’re just friends
Well playing pretend to keep me here
It’s over
There’s nothing you can do
There’s nothing you can say
To keep me here
It’s over
You say we’re just friends
It’s almost the end
I’m outta here
It’s over
I’m outta here

    General Comment"Over"was a song that was never intended to make it on our record. It was one of those happy accidents. I had the idea for the verse kicking around for a few weeks, but could never really get it together enough to bring it to the band. One day while we were deep into recording drums at Third Stone Studios, I approached Kenny and Gavin with a finished chorus. Between the three of us we hashed out something that would be recorded early the next day. Kenny and I jammed out an arrangement that made sense and recorded it in about thirty minutes. Marko mentioned that it should have a break in rhythm going into its last chorus. It sounded like a cool idea so we incorporated it into the song. This is one of those songs that is purely a studio track. It was never played by the band all at once. We all had a shot recording what we felt the song needed. In the end when we mixed it we ended up stripping the song down to it's rawest form. This is the first rock song our band has ever made like this. Its lyrics are unique in that they reflect a first person fictional relationship between two people where the feelings are not mutual. I came up with the idea based on a few "strange" incidents where someone has gotten too close to us as individuals based on anything but reality. I think of it as the stalker song.

    General CommentTo me this song is about a relationship between a couple, and one of the two feels like an outsider, but has feelings for the other (who doesnt appear to be an outsider). The one who isnt an outsider is admired and sought after by many other people. Both of them like eachother and were most likely in a serious/intimate relationship at one point in time, but something happened to end it. What ever ended it has led to one of them feeling betrayed and no longer cared for, as if they were 'traded in'. Now they are just "friends", and one of them is carrying on as if nothing happened, and the other (who was 'betrayed') is fighting heart break and has many unresolved issues that seem to be more easily fixed by having nothing to do with the other - "theres nothing you can do, theres nothing you can say, to keep me here, You say we’re just friends, Well playing pretend to keep me here"

    General CommentThi is the only 1 that reminds me of start static... Pretty much the only "Outstanding" song on the album... so I will have to say " This is my favorite off their new album. " too...

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy that likes a girl and they are in love but the girl may be "unpopular" or something and everyone makes fun of the guy for liking her so he says he doesnt and just says they are friends. I think no one believes him so they are "watching his every move" and she is sick of getting called "only his friend" so shes calling it over

    General Commenti seem to find the meaning in this song quite diffrently. From what i see and from what i've experence I think it's a about a couple that's been long broken up but somewhere down the road someone lied, cheated.... whatever........ one side of the relationship is still questioning do you feel bad at all? do you still see me? Do you understand how bad it hurts even after this long?
    "Look around if you’re guilty"
    "Every night I lay in bed
    I think about the things you said
    Look around, I’m the one, your only
    Look around it still kills me

    General CommentSounds like Tim's problems with people at his shows watching his every move, breathing in his every move, etc. He really can't stand people that gape at him as if he were some form of higher human being than the rest of us. And how it kills him.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of a relationship with my best friend, we dated for a long time and were well in love then i broke it off, but now he is still my best friend but i still have feelings for him and he says he doesnt have any for me and that we can never be together again, but hes always caring about me even if it hurts him. like he loves me still and unconditionally, he just cant admit it, it broke both our hearts at many different times over the past. the lines
    "every night i lay in bed
    i think about the things you said
    look around, im the one
    youre only
    look around
    it still kills me "
    are exactly what i feel/do.

    its really wierd to find a song i can relate to ALOT, but this is definately it!

    General CommentI think this can relate to any relationship that may be long distanced and how the girl may feel embarrassed she is dating someone who lives afar. The guy obviously feels hurt and loves her very much, but she insists on saying they are "just friends." Then he talks about laying in bed and thinking about the things she said. She might tell him something different than what she says compared to her friends. So that's when he says he she's her one and only because that's what she tells him, but she says another thing around her friends. Then he finally realizes she acts like two different people and ends the relationship - it's over.
