"Over" as written by and Adam/kelly Brown....
You better crawl on your knees
The next time you say that you love me
Fall on your knees, 'cause this time I won't be so kind
Can't you see that this is life and life is killing me
Is it yours? is it mine?
Our sky fell down tonight, to wash away our pain

Tell me, over and over and over and over and over again
It never was time for us, it never was time to let me in
Show me, over and over and over and over and over again
It never was time for us, it never was time to let me in

You better see how evil you can be
When you see my evil smile
It's the one that you'll remember when I am not so kind
Can't you see that this is death and death is saving me
I say burn all your bridges while you still have control of the flame
I know it's hard but you...

Tell me, over and over and over and over and over again
It never was time for us, it never was time to let me in
Show me, over and over and over and over and over again
It never was time for us, it never was time to let me in

You've hardened to the point
You're hard and to the point

Tell me, over and over and over and over and over again
It never was time for us, it never was time to let me in
(hardened to the point)
Show me, over and over and over and over and over again
(hard and to the point)
It never was time for us, it never was time to let me in

    General CommentOk..here goes nothing. I think this song is talking a rushed relationship thats going bad. There doesn't seem to be any trust between the two people.."you better crawl on your knees the next time you say that you love me." I don't think that should be taken literally either. I think he's trying to say that she doesn't show much emotion because theres no trust. Ok..& I came to the conclusion that this was about a rushed relationship because it says "..it never was time for us, it never was the time to let me in." That's all I have to say about this one though..

    General CommentI think its about a person who was in a relationship and they tried to make it work but the other person was done trying or never even tried.This person is still bitter about the end of the relationship and feels that if the person that ended it ever says they they really do love them and want them back they better crawl on their knees and beg. He wont be so kind anymore because this person never cared before, what changed now? This whole situation in life is killing him, so life is killing him. the sky fell down that night, so everything ended to wash away the pain of whats been building up to the moment. The person kept telling him over and over that it wasn't the time for them and it never will be. He just wanted it to work and for this person to let him in to her life.This person better see how evil they can be because he is done being nice, after all of the evil stuff that she did to him, its his turn to be evil. the tables are turned. its one that she'll remember . the death is a reference to the death of the relationship. it was killing him before but no that its over maybe he can move on. she should burn the bridge between them while she still doesnt care because if she tries to get him back its going to painful because she wont have control anymore. thats just what i think

    General CommentTo me, the song is about an ending. A bittersweet one at that. I can see where Lateralus gets his view from, but I disagree. There wasn't any rush here. It just wasn't what was expected. He's been walking blindly - by his own will - into a relationship. He knows what's going on. He knows it's troubled. He knows it can never be fixed, and so does she...but neither want to admit it. This is him finally facing the truth. Turns out, it wasn't love. It wasn't special. It was just the same old fake relationship between two people who are always looking for something more.

    General CommentI agree with suckymusicsucks to a point, but to me it means that he's put effort into this realtionship and she wasn't willing or ready to let him in. She didn't put forth any engry in the realtionship.

    General CommentFrom Evans Blue's mySpace:

    The tables turned and I've gained control and I'll speak to you how I want to. You better crawl on your knees the next time you say you love me. You better fall on your knees because this time I wont be so kind. I won't be sweet or try to sugar coat it. I will walk all over you, just the way you want it. You are so weak now, cant you see that this is your pathetic life and that it is killing me? You better see how evil you can be when you see my smile. It's the one that you're gonna remember when I'm not so kind, you will fantasize about it one day. Stay still, now move, now scream, now shut up, your time is over boy.

    You can say we're letting loose of something more, but I say we're doing just fine. You loved how I spoke the lines you wrote to me, you loved how I sang them but tonight it's gonna be real quiet for you. Don't you get it, do I always have to tell you? There will never be a time for us. Do I always have to show you? over and over again? You've hardened to a point and you just don't seem to understand. You can't get it through that thick skull of yours. So, I've had to become hard and to the point and you should know it's hard for me but I have to. If only you realized how to act when we were together things may be different, but our sky fell down that night. It wasn't your sky, it wasn't mine, it was ours. It washed away my pain, did it wash away yours? I was holding onto something that didn't exist in you and now you've lost me and now you want me.

    You know what? It doesn't work that way sweetheart. I decide who sleeps tonight and I decide what they dream. You can get close but not too close, and I will laugh at your frivolous attempts to win me back. Can't you see that this is our death and that it is rebuliding me? I will find myself and you will not be there, you will still be looking for me but that me wont exist anymore. So close your eyes and try not to think about me, I know it will be hard for you. When you turn out the lights and you think about me for the last time I hope you remember that I wish you sweet dreams and to sleep sweet, always. Goodnight.

    I also got word that this is the next single.
