"Overrated" as written by Mary Holladay (holly) Lamar and Dennis Matkosky....
Maybe I’m jaded and bored
Always lookin’ for more
Waiting around for the next big fix
I know
I’m a wreck I’m a mess
But I couldn’t care less
Don’t know what it would take to change me

Every body is so afraid to be different
Please excuse me now if I don’t get it

I think sex is overrated
So is always getting wasted
Designer drugs and dead end jobs and
Classic rock is so outdated
I’m so sick of therapy and all the things it’s done to me
How can I be satisfied when everything is overrated?

Maybe the problem is me
But I won’t make believe
And I can’t take this mediocrity
What if this is a test and I deserve what I get
Will I wake up with all the answers?

Every body is too afraid to be different
Please excuse me now if I don’t listen

I think sex is overrated
So is always getting wasted
Designer drugs and dead-end jobs and
Classic rock is so outdated
I’m so sick of therapy and all the things it’s done to me
How can I be satisfied when everything is overrated?

Wo-oh [x6]
When everything is overrated
Wo-oh [x6]
When everything is overrated

Can’t stand the normal
Can’t stand the ordinary
Find me anything
That’s extraordinary
Show me something
Show me anything
Am I the only one?
Am I the only one?

I think sex is overrated
So is always getting wasted
All my friends and family
They make my life so complicated
I’m so sick of apathy and TV show reality
How can I be satisfied when everything is overrated?

Wo-oh [x6]
When everything is overrated
Wo-oh [x6]
When everything is overrated

    General CommentWell, to be honest Im a bit disappointed in what Ive heard off the new album. I love LTJ dearly, but I think they reached their peak at Hello Rockview, and did a good job with Anthem, but they seem to be selling out :(

    General CommentSounds like he's getting tired of the rock star party lifestyle and wants to take it easy and do his own thing.

    General CommentI love Less Than Jake and all, but I find it completely hysterical that after singing about drinking is overrated ("so is always getting wasted") they're calling for someone to bring Jager onstage.

    At least, they were when I saw them.

    Still a good song, and inhib, both you and 21deadmonkeys are right when you say they sound like Bowling For Soup, lol.

    I don't think they sold out, though. I was actually surprised with the horn section on the latest album, I expected a lot less, judging by how much the horns were lacking (or at least...how little you could hear, whatever) on Anthem. Still, the new album's great, you have to love LTJ no matter what. ;P

    General CommentA lot of ska bands that have been around for a while have been doing this. When I say this I mean releasing an album that seems bitter and angry or is completly different from their previous albums. ex LTJ - In With The Out Crowd, RBF - We're Not Happy Until You're Not Happy. Hopefully these guys don't stay bitter cause they are two of my favorite bands.
