"Overdone" as written by and Andrew Volpe Timothy Convy....
I'm a snake in the grass
Watch your feet, let me pass
I'm tight and afraid
I can't eat I can't change
And all the little mice
Are dancing in sunlight
While I shuffle pass
Just a snake in the grass
And oh, I'm overcome
And oh, now I am new

I am in love again
I am consumed by it
I am in love again
Under drugged and overdone

I'm a snake on a shelf
Just a pile of myself
While the mice in the walls
Find joy in it all
But I'm bad, bred to suffer
In the dark, in this room
I'll explode, I'll escape
Get me out, make it soon

Oh,
Oh, oh I am in love again
Oh, oh, I am consumed by it
Oh, oh, I am in love again
Under drugged and overdone

If there's a god that could save me
I'd ask that he open the skies and do it now
But it's just a chemical, I'm not a snake
I'm just falling apart again
Look at me, I'm sobbing like a child

I am in love again
I am consumed by it
I am in love again
Under drugged and overdone

Oh, oh, I am in love
Oh, oh

    General CommentI definitely see what you mean with the euphemism, but I interpret it differently. I think he feels like a broken person, possibly from a past love. He slithers around, depressed and thinking that he is inherently bad while other people are happy (mice). Then he falls in love with someone and he begins to change. He feels different and that maybe he isnt a snake, and that mind set is just a chemical imbalance like depression.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song
    i love how he actually admits to crying because most males dont admit that they cry and i hate that. any guy that isnt afraid to cry (at the right times. not all the time) is automatically awesome. when i heard that line i just was like AWWWWWW!!!!! and i wanted to just hug him
    lol

    Song MeaningThis song is clearly a euphemism. Need I say more?

    Song MeaningI can't say definitively what I think this song is about, a full personal interpretation still eludes me. But I disagree with the notion that the entire song is some sort of euphemism.
    I definitely feel like the metaphor for the snake is that there is a lack of trust, they are often symbolized as something untrustworthy and dangerous. Perhaps he feels that way about himself? He's a 'snake in the grass', as though there's a hidden danger about him that he can't trust his love with. He /wants/ to love this other person, yea. I feel almost to the point of obsession. But he feels like he is a danger, too. He feels as though he doesn't deserve it. He is 'bad, bred to suffer'. And that reality is driving him mad.
