"Overtake You" as written by Jasen Rauch and Rob Graves....
Time
It's eating me alive
Unable to rewind
Sink deeper while I'm climbing
Never to arrive

I gave you everything
But still you need to feed
And underneath it all I'm screaming out

Just carry on
Just prove me wrong
I know that I'm dying right now
And it seems that I'm so far gone
But not for long
I'll just be strong and keep knowing
That now I will overtake you

Just one that you can use
One risk but you can't lose
Play the victim while abusing
Anyone you choose

Painful consequence
Of standing on your lies
I'm barely breathing but I'm screaming out

Just carry on
Just prove me wrong
I know that I'm dying right now
And it seems that I'm so far gone
But not for long
I'll just be strong and keep knowing
That now I will overtake you

I know that I'm dying right now
And it seems that I'm so far gone
(Overtake you)
I'll just be strong and keep knowing
That now I will overtake

You'll come to get me, but you'll end up dead
You'll come to get me, but you'll end up dead
You'll come to get me, but you'll end up dead
You'll come to get me, but you'll end up dead

Just carry on
Just prove me wrong
I know that I'm dying right now
And it seems that I'm so far gone
But not for long
I'll just be strong and keep knowing
That now I will overtake you

You'll come to get me, but you'll end up dead
You'll come to get me, but you'll end up dead
(Overtake you)
You'll come to get me, but you'll end up dead
(Overtake you, overtake you)
You'll come to get me
(Overtake you)
You'll come to get me

    General CommentThis is a great song. I guess it could be called a great "battle song" for the fight with the inner demons of addiction. I kind of wish they would mention God, and how he's helping "overtake you" ... but I guess their kind of a cross-over band, and they don't want to seem too cheesey or something... I guess Red's just hoping we'll assume he's getting help from God. (because we can't win this fight alone)

    General CommentDoes anyone else get the feeling that this could also apply to overtaking time as well as struggles in life?

    General Commentyou know, the fact that we all eventually die at the hands of time but that is not the our end thanks to God

    General Commenti'm actually really glad they never mention god in their songs. that way people like me can love their music too.
    Red is one of my favorite bands but i am barley religious and do not like bands who mention god.
    they can have the god implication, i don't care about that, but i take this song as an terrible fight with a friend that made them into enemies, and he wants to "overtake you" and "you'll come to get me but you'll end up dead".
    i dunno, that's how i see it.
