* BlatantLies: "Our Lies" exemplifies this trope, with the singer variously claiming that she was never conceived, the bones in her face weren't there all along and that she loves your coffee cake.
* ConceptAlbum: "Oh Perilous World". "Unknown" is also a concept album dealing with Melora Creager's real life encounter with a stalker.
* CreepyDoll: “Gingerbread Coffin”.
* GoodbyeCruelWorld: "A Quitter". The title has a double meaning in French, which phonetically translates to "has left."

* LyricalDissonance: Inverted with their appropriately dark and foreboding cover of “Bad Moon Rising”, Creedence Clearwater Revival's peppy song about impending doom.

* GeniusBonus: Melora Creager is a history buff, and it shows in her lyrics. For instance, "1816, The Year Without A Summer" happened in RealLife pretty much as the lyrics describe, and the Thursday Christian referenced on ''Oh Perilous World'' was a real person (son of the leader of the MutinyOnTheBounty).
