"Over It" as written by and Joseph Donald Mascis Jr.....
Can not make it here
I'm over it,
I've been feelin' weird
Get over it,
Cannot wind up free
I'm over it,
Is there more to see
I'm over it,

What else should I do,
If I run around for you,
What am I supposed to do,
Keep it comin' oh they do,

We still last so long
Got over it,
Up on the late
An all go over it,
Cant escape the task
Not over it,
Wait if you need a ask
I'm over it,
Oh wo hoo

Its you
Having picked me out its true,
I would do
Life's so easy to get through,

I'm in arms offense now its makin' sense I see,
If I go any where I can buy most things I need to believe

I got lost in thought I'm over it,
All I almost lost not over it,
I got friends to get, get over it,
Hasn't happened yet I'm over it,

Now its time to do
All the things you say are true
I been waitin' now we do
Wen I needed you came through,
Can I run right into you
Gettin' lost in nothin' blue,
I need everything that's true
Would you pick me over you,
Now after all that's been I'm glad I show all we've seen

    General CommentI've been on the fence
    Now it's makin sense
    I see

    Sometimes I overthink
    I feel my heart sink
    I need...to believe.

    General CommentI'm a latecomer to Dinosaur Jr. Having listened to pretty much every other American Underground band I could find over the lat few years since getting into Black Flag, I neglected some of the more obvious well known bands. I just discovered Dinosaur Jr the other week when I saw the video for this on Scuzz, and I've been listening to it on repeat ever since.

    My Interpretationi think this songs about keeping your chin up and not being a sad sack all the time basically. musically its all pretty chirpy and upbeat and then the fact that he says 'im over it' and 'get over it' about a thousand times in the tune makes me think that its about just letting go of things which have gone wrong or could go wrong and learning to just go with the flow.
    thats just my opinion though so...

    General CommentI always interpreted this song as about J and Lou's long estranged friendship with each other. I think the lyrics are about how they've patched things up over the years and are glad they got over it.

    General CommentI think it's about being stuck in this life that is filled with 'damned if you do, damned if you don't' situations. You can't escape it, and he's saying he's 'over it,' in the sense that he now understands life is about ups and downs, getting lost, falling down and starting again. It's about acceptance and riding out life for what it's worth.
