* BaitAndSwitch: The music video for "The Man" off of ''Wonderful Wonderful'' pulls one of these by depicting the protagonists doing stereotypically masculine things only to show the repercussions of those things in the modern age; the high-rolling gambler gets thrown out on his ass when his luck turns, the daredevil motorcyclist is only [[GloryDays reliving past glories]] because of a bad accident, the bar-crawler gets into a fight with a bigger man that he started by getting shitfaced, and the Vegas lounge singer is performing for a disinterested and sparse crowd due to a severe loss in interest for that sort of hokey performance.

* YeOldeButcheredEnglish: Pops up in "Wonderful Wonderful" when the singer addresses the "motherless child".
-->Motherless child does thou believe\\
That thine afflictions have caused us to grieve?\\
Motherless child angels have closed\\
Their eyes, thou wast thrown away and exposed\\

* 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.

* LyricsVideoMismatch: "All These Things That I've Done" appears to be about the band trying to run out on their girlfriends...while wearing cowboy outfits...and then the women pursue them with boomerangs. And something about a trailer park. The UK version, on the other hand, is pure SweetDreamsFuel.
