    Retro Rockets is about listening to the radio and not being able to hear good music any more, it talks about all 'the sounds sound the same', which is a dig at modern music sounding all the same and he longs for music 'that hits your heart and soul' like you used to get. Overall, it's criticism of modern music heard on the radio and the lack of diversity, perhaps at radio stations for not playing music outside of the current styles.

    Remember when you could hear the sound of your life on the radio,
    tiny little speakers filled the room, and your head, and you let it go.
    Nobody ever plays the songs anymore, the ones that really hit your heart at the core,
    and I don't think that I can take it any more, Retro Rockets.

    Where's the melody, that means so much to me,
    where's the identity, that's been eluding me.

    I know what I wanna hear, an I don't wanna lose it,
    too much static in my ear from the people who cruise it.

    Remember how you could turn the day into gold, when you touched that dial,
    and someone that you'd never know, raised the roof an it made you smile,
    Now I listen and it all sounds the same, music by numbers and you're playing the game,
    and if you hear to much, it'll drive you insane, Retro rockets

    Am I the only one, that wants to hear a song, that I can still recall, with great lucidity.

    I know what I wanna hear, an I don't wanna lose it,
    too much static in my ear from the people who cruise it.

    Where's the melody, that means so much to me,
    where's the identity, that's been eluding me.

    I know what I wanna hear, an I don't wanna lose it,
    there's too much static in my ear from the people who cruise it.

    I know what I wanna hear, an I don't wanna lose it,
    there's too much static in my ear from the people who cruise it.
