Singer Alex Gaskarth told Kerrang! that "Cinderblock Garden" is "A straight love song." Said Gaskarth: "It's about finding love in a situation which isn't ideal; life can survive all things if you let it. It's a story about a couple who are having to live in a city, when the girl wants a garden. Maybe it's not ideal conditions for this love, but we can make it work."
A concrete or cinder block is a large rectangular brick, which is used in the garden to define spaces or create a raised planting bed. Garskarth sings here of making the best of what they've got, so that his lover can be "the girl with the cinderblock garden."
In Gary Numan's "Cars," the message is that cars lead to a mechanical society devoid of personal interaction. This didn't stop automakers from using it in commercials. Both Nissan and Oldsmobile have used it in ads.
