** ''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".
