"Superbug" as written by Liam Coverdale-howe, Chris Corner and Ian Pickering....
I aim to bug you on your vacancy
Never complicate but you talk it cheap
You sense but you don't know
Too lame to catch a cold

Slowly the signs will read you dumb
Surely the times will feel you numb
I know the pains you took to show me
And I'm nothing but your superbug for asking

I hate to bug you on your certainty
Never compromise-you're always weak
You care but you don't show
Too proud to catch the flow

Under all the truth and facts there's faith enough
If you can't live on love alone it isn't love

Slowly the signs will read you dumb
Surely the times will feel you numb
I know the depths you sunk to show me
I want the life the world still owes me
And I'm nothing but your superbug for asking
Answer-stamp me out

And I'd love to break your fall but no one's asking me
Answer-stamp me out

Slowly the signs will read you dumb
Surely the times will feel you numb
I know the pains you took to show me
You said it hurts your head to know me
And I'm nothing but your superbug for asking
Answer-stamp me out

    General Commentwow, no comments? this is an awesome song!

    no clue as for the meaning, but, there is a sense of pride in this song.
    more of - "i guess i don't mean anything to you, but it'll catch up to you someday."

    Song MeaningI think this song is about a woman who refuses to move forward with the relationship but at the same time doesn't give a clear no. So basically, it's unrequited love from the narrator's (guy's) point of view.


    I hate to bug you on your certainty
    never compromise - you're just always weak
    you care but you don't show
    too proud to catch the flow

    The first line sounds a bit sarcastic when the second line is delivered. It's like "you're so certain we won't work. Yeah right! You're just weak, girl."


    slowly the signs will read you dumb
    surely the times will feel you numb

    The signs you're giving me, make you look dumb and will eventually make you feel cold and numb towards any relationship.


    you said it hurts your head to know me

    Self explanatory. Pretty much, "I hate to bug you, but you gotta give me an answer so that I can move on."



    and I'd love to break your fall but no one's asking me
    answer - stamp me out

    I'm right here, but it seems like you don't want me. Just give me an answer and I'll leave.


    It's a recurring theme where he wants an answer, but she's either on the fence or is just trying to ignore him. I love the jaded rock sound on this track! Kind of reminds me of Nirvana.
