Stuck On You - Failure

Stuck On You starts with a near rigorous assault upon the eardrums with shrill, slow-plucked electric notes. Through such distorted static, consider the chiming notes and their step-ladder progression. In the all-consuming composition that starts this great song off most people are wont to turn it off, but if a wash of noise spread through the air in audible slivers like this are your thing, then you should definitely consider giving it a listen beyond the first...fourteen seconds or so.

It is this torturous amalgam of feedback that leads to the opening passages, softly spoken in song:

I heard you driving in my car
Then in a frozen bar,
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.


It is here that the distortion vanishes, replaced with clean, beautiful acoustics and bass that provides delightful fill as a calm before the storm of heavy, distorted sound washes over again. And all the while, the lyrical stylings of Ken Andrews do not fail as the band's name might suggest. The lyrics, while sending heated shivers of nostalgia throught my spine, I leave for you to judge.
Check it out!


From the album "Fantastic Planet" (oddly enough, it's impossible to actually find lyrics to this song that aren't all capitalized):
I heard you driving in my car
Then in a frozen bar
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.

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

[chorus]
Stuck on you, 'til the end of time
I'm too tired to fight your rhyme.
Stuck on you, 'til the end of time
You've got me paralyzed.

Holding on the telephone
I hear your mid-range moan
You're everywhere inside my room.
Even when I'm alone, I hear your mellow drone
You're everywhere inside of me.

[chorus]

I can't escape your incessant whine
When you beam it out, all across the sky.
No I can't escape your insipid rhyme,
When you shoot it deep
Straight into my mind.
