"Stuck on You (Failure cover)" as written by and Ken/edwards Andrews....
I heard you driving in my car
Then in a frozen bar
And I claimed I didn't care for you
But your verse got trapped inside my head
Over and over again
You played yourself to death in me

I thought I'd drop you easily
But that was not to be
You burrowed like a summer tic
So you invade my sleep and confuse my dreams
Turn my nights to sleepless itch

Stuck on you 'till the end of time
I'm too tired to fight your rhyme
Stuck on you 'till the end of time
you've got me paralyzed

Holding on the telephone
I hear your midrange moan
You're everywhere inside my room
Even when I'm alone I hear your mellow drone
You're everywhere inside of me

Stuck on you 'till the end of time
I'm too tired to fight your rhyme
Stuck on you 'till the end of time
You got me trapped inside

I can't escape your incessant whine
When you beam it out all across the sky
No I can't escape
(stuck on you 'till the end of time)
your insipid rhyme
(I'm too tired to fight your rhyme)
When you shoot it deep
(stuck on you 'till the end of time)
Straight into my mind

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who's in love with another but just keeps trying to avoid acknowledging it. Perhaps their heart was previously broken and they don't want to admit they're back in love again? Either way, he/she doesn't want to admit it, so they think they can just drop the person and move on. "I thought I'd drop you easily. But that was not to be. You burrowed like a summer tic. So you invade my sleep and confuse my dreams. Turn my nights to sleepless itch."

    General CommentThis song is amazing, and Paramore did an amazing job of covering it. It's definetly about not wanting to like some one, but then always finding yourself thinking of them and such.

    General Commentalthough all the memebers of paramore are indeed Christians, this to me, is definitely not about God.

    its a cover for one, and the lyrics seem to be clearly about someone not wanting to/having a hard time trying to get over someone.

    also:
    i love the tuning in this song. in "stuck on you" and other songs they use guitar tuning that is similar to oldest emo bands from the 90's and i love it.
    it gives it a real dreamy type of feel.

    General CommentAll of you people who are talking about how it's "about someone breaking up with someone and they can't get over them", you're 1/3 right.

    It's 3 metaphors in one song. It's a metaphor of a song getting stuck in your head that is also used to describe a failed relationship (or possibly having a crush on someone?), but also, if you looked deeper into the song, you'd see that it's also a metaphor for a drug addiction.

    Ken Andrews (the lead singer of failure..the band who originally did this song) had some drug issues, and used his music to talk about alot of his problems (see: Dirty Blue Balloons, The Nurse Who Loved Me, etc.).
