* InMemoriam - "Make It Stop (September's Children)" was written to address the growing problem of homophobia, and to honor the memories of those that perished in the September 2010 suicides and those who have committed suicide for bullying, for whatever reasons, throughout time. It even quotes the names of the victims: Tyler Clementi (18), Billy Lucas (15), Harrison Chase Brown (15), Cody J. Barker (17), and Seth Walsh (13). The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP4clbHc4Xg video]] makes this even more apparent.

** ''Hero of War'': [[spoiler: the man in the story fails to stop his friends from committing war crimes ([[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything which are suspiciously similar to some committed by US troops in a certain prison in Iraq]]), and then falls to peer pressure and joins in. Later, he ends up killing a woman who was unarmed and holding a white flag. The man ends up going home, broken and defeated, with his love of country tainted by what he's seen in war.]]
** ''The Approaching Curve'': [[spoiler: During an argument with the narrator, the girlfriend/wife presumably drives their vehicle off of a cliff (either due to the anger or a distraction), killing them both.]]

** ''Make It Stop (September's Children)'' is half an example, as "Make it stop" is a line in the chorus, but "September's children" is not in the song.
* ObligatoryWarCrimeScene: ''Hero of War'' is essentially a string of these after the first chorus.

** For a band whose music tackles such heavy, powerful themes, they rarely ever curse. As such, any instance where they use foul language certainly counts as a PrecisionFStrike.

** For a band whose music tackles such heavy, powerful themes, they rarely ever curse. As such, any instance where they use foul language certainly counts as a PrecisionFStrike. For example, in "The Great Die-Off", the chorus says "We want it all and we want it now.". The third time it's said, however, it's replaced by a more powerful "We want the motherfucking world and we want it now".
