Agreed, SOAD is great! Some songs are more straightforward and easy to understand (Prison Song, Attack, BYOB) and others seem really random but I wonder if they have a deeper meaning (Vicinity of Obscenity, Chic n Stu)?
Edit: just googled Vicinity of Obscenity, that should have been so obvious to me lol!
