"Overcome" as written by Mark Tremonti and Scott Stapp....
Don't cry victim to me
Everything we are and used to be is buried and gone
Now its my turn to speak
Its my turn to expose and release whats been killing me

I'll be dammed fighting you, it's impossible, impossible!
Say goodbye, with no sympathy!

I'm entitled to overcome
Completely stunned I'm numb
Knock me down throw me to the floor!
There's no pain I can't feel no more
I'm entitled to overcome, overcome

Finally see whats beneath
Everything I am and hope to be
Cannot be lost

I'll be dammed fighting you
You're impossible, impossible!
Say goodbye with no sympathy!

I'm entitled to overcome
Completely stunned I'm numb
Knock me down throw me to the floor
There's no pain I cant feel no more
I'm entitled to overcome, overcome!

(Overcome!) You'll never know what I was thinking before you came round
Take a step, take a breath, put your guard down
(Overcome!) I cannot worry anymore of what you think of me
I may be crazy but I'm buried in your memory

I'm entitled to overcome
Completely stunned I'm numb
Knock me down throw me to the floor
There's no pain I cant feel no more

I'm entitled to overcome
Completely stunned I'm numb
I'm entitled to overcome
Completely stunned I'm numb
I'm entitled to overcome
I may be crazy but I'm buried in your memory

    Song MeaningI strongly believe he wrote about overcoming his drinking addiction that caused him to be removed by his band members earlier this decade.

    Overcome is the first song on the album which is known in the music industry as the "tone setter" or "message letter"; bands will use this as sending a message.

    Along with this, the Overcome music video shows Scott and the other members in a concert(s) with a reunion setting in between these concert shots. When Scott was removed by Creed it happened by pure embarrassment. Scott passed out during the opening song at a concert in Chicago during 2004, and then once again in Orlando, which he later admitted he had no memory of the Orlando show. It was obvious alcohol was starting to take its toll on Scott and the band, so Creed was forced to have to let him go.

    With all this information it would appear that Scott has bettered his life and has Overcome his addiction.

    But meanings of songs is like the Bible; its what it means to YOU, what you take from it, and how it helps you through your triumphs and/or tribulations.

    God Bless...
