The sounds in high fidelity are my personal luxury
The songs I love are the ska sounds that melt banana be covering
You can't have a turntable when you live in a van
X would have to pimp my ride thats something I cant plan
So now I have to listen to my compact disc
and hope that all my records they are not at risk

I miss my paradise / my vinyl paradise

This music that I make you, is for your ass to shake to
'cause something was lost along the way
All the girls at the shows, they cry, they don't have a bloody nose
Something was definately lost along the way
So I'll record this song upon a compact disc
'Cause putting it on a record is too much of a risk now

    General CommentI lived in a van for a little over a year while we were on permanent hiatus (no drummer). Despite the fact that I couldn't listen to them, I continued to collect vinyl, leaving them around the van. The second verse is about the shows that I would go to see and then the shows I would see while working at this club. The all-ages parent-friendly mostly christian indie-emo-pop crap where everyone would sway and sing together and have a good cry. Fuck that! Shake your ass & go crazy! Skank 'n go nuts!

    General CommentPoor Doyle misses vinyl because everything's put on CDs and you can't listen to records while touring unless your ride's been pimped.

    This song is really catchy and has a great ska punk sound.

    Song Meaning"The songs I love are the ska sounds that melt banana be covering"
    This is a reference to the Japanese noise-rock band Melt-Banana, which covered the first-wave ska song "Monkey Man" by the band Toots and the Maytals.

    "X would have to pimp my ride thats something I cant plan"
    A reference to Pimp My Ride, the host of which is rapper Xzibit.
