One Too Many

Album: Breaking the Model (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The first single from New Medicine's Breaking the Model album is about excessiveness. Vocalist Jake Scherer explained: "Everybody is guilty of that — whether it's drinking or something else. We all hit the point where we say, 'Now, I probably shouldn't have this one more, but I'll do it anyway!' That's the fun part of life. You never know unless you go too far."

    "That's also a metaphor for how we perceive music," Scherer added. "We want to cross the line."
