  Artist List   /   Red   /   Innocence & Instinct (Deluxe Edition)


12. Overtake You (Deluxe Edition Bonus)

Innocence & Instinct (Deluxe Edition)
by Red


Time, it's eating me alive,
Unable to rewind,
Sink deeper while I'm climbing,
Never to arrive,
I gave you everything,
But you still need to feed,
And underneath it all I'm screaming out:

Just carry one, just prove me wrong
I know that I'm dying right now.
And it seems like 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 must want what you can use,
Won't risk what you can lose,
Play the victim while keep abusing,
Anyone you choose,
A painful consequence,
Of standing on your lies,
I'm barely breathing but I'm screaming out

(Just carry on)
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 know I will overtake you


Behind the Song:
The first full-song bonus track on the Deluxe Edition, the song “Overtake You” rivals “Death of Me” and “Out From Under' as the album’s most aggressive song. Lead vocalist Michael Barnes is at his best as he confidently screams, “You’ll come to get me but you’ll end up dead!” According to songwriter-guitarist Jasen Rauch, “This song is proud, boastful and arrogant in challenging something you believe you can truly overcome. It was fun to write, and it’s definitely fun to play.”
