Chock-full of double meaning and self-deprecation the album comments on the young American experience. From the addled addict, "It ain''t like I wanted it. It ain''t like I''m good.... I''m back on the drugs," (Back on the Drugs) to the homesick soldier, "sitting in Iraq with an MRE...yeah, Big Mac, when I get back," (Iraq) the songs portray a generation coping with their inherited future.
"Erased", an early release from the album, is getting frequent play on college and internet radio.
