* [[AmbiguouslyGay Ambiguously Trans]]: The most common interpretation of "Somebody Told Me" seems to be that the girl is dating a transgender man who dated the singer pre-transition. The song is ambiguous, to say the least...
-->''"Somebody told me that you had a boyfriend''
-->''Who looks like a girlfriend that I had in February of last year."''

->''Jealousy, turning saints into the sea,\\
Swimming through sick lullabies,\\
Choking on your alibis,\\
But itís just the price I pay,\\
Destiny is calling me,\\
Open up my eager eyes,\\
Cause Iím Mr. Brightside.''
-->"Mr. Brightside"

Added DiffLines:

* IJustWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: One reading of "Mr. Brightside" could be a case of this, as the lyrics imply that the singer is being cheated on by their significant other but is either too disinterested to care or has such low self-esteem that they let them go so they can be happy, even at the singer's expense. Given that it was written after the lead singer had gone through a bad breakup due to being cheated on, this is probably the intended reading.

* LyricalDissonance: Quite a few of their songs feature upbeat, engaging melody lines combined with lyrics that range from downbeat and somewhat depressing (e.g "Runaways") to NightmareFuel (e.g the "Murder Trilogy").

* BookEnds: ''Sam's Town'' begins with "Enterlude" and ends with "Exitlude." The latter is a reprise of the former with an added verse at the start.

* CallBack/CallForward: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in the songs "A Matter of Time" and "Miss Atomic Bomb" of ''Battle Born''. The two share several phrases ("laughing with your girlfriends", "falling back on forever", etc.) and are part of the same story. "A Matter of Time" comes first on the album, making the lines in "Miss Atomic Bomb" a CallBack. However, "Miss Atomic Bomb" is a single from the album and the one most fans heard first, so when later listening to the album in order, "A Matter of Time" serves as a CallForward.
