* AnimalMotifs: Put in increasing use with each successive album. Notable examples are, of course, "The Fox, The Crow, And The Cookie," the Spider trilogy of songs on ''Brother, Sister''.

* FakeOutFadeOut: Played with in "We Know Who Our Enemies Are". The song ends with a riff that slowly fades out, only to fade back in, before abruptly ending.

* IncrediblyLamePun: In "Fiji Mermaid", Weiss quips, "Maybe there'll be a bakery hiring/We'll need a little dough to get by." There is an audible groan in the background, which is actually printed in the lyric sheet as well.

* NotChristianRock: Sorta. In interviews Aaron Weiss--a Christian who takes inspiration from Sufism and other religious traditions--comments that his lyrics are almost entirely personal in nature, and not targeted toward any particular audience (religious or otherwise). Even so, his religious views are evident in almost everything he sings. In essence, the songs detail more the struggles and triumphs in a religious man's life rather than being anything like straightforward worship songs (though a few of those sneak in here and there).
* SequelSong: "Nice and Blue", from ''A→B Life'', and "Nice and Blue, Pt. 2" from ''Brother, Sister.''

* SingleStanzaSong: "All Circles", the closing track from ''Ten Stories'', only contains the lyrics "All circles presuppose they'll end where they begin/But only in their leaving can they ever come back 'round", with Hayley Williams' bridge paraphrasing them only slightly. Interestingly, the lyrics to this song are printed around the edge of the CD instead of in the lyric booklet.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: From "Fox's Dream of the Log Flume":
--> I asked her, "Did you ever have that recurring fantasy
--> Where you push little kids from the tops of the ride?"
--> She shook her head no
--> I said "Oh, neither do I"
* TragicHero: ''Ten Stories''' Elephant, in a sense.

to:

* ''Pale Horses'' (2015)


Added DiffLines:

** ''Pale Horses'' does this as well.
** Furthering the confusion, a typical album of theirs will have several songs that completely change tempo, rhythm, and/or melody midway through, feeling like two separate songs fused together into a single track.


Added DiffLines:

** Also "Bullet to Binary" from ''A→B Life'' and "Bullet to Binary, Pt. 2" from ''It's All Crazy! Its All False! Its All a Dream! Its Alright!''

mewithoutYou is an AlternativeRock Band (formerly) signed to {{Tooth and Nail}} Records, known for their spoken word vocals, introspective lyrics and almost hookless instrumentation. We could clarify more, [[GenreBusting but it gets tougher to with every album.]]
