** The first track of the album, “The Dead Flag Blues” has the following monologue spoken in a sombre monotone, which, whether it is a DyingDream, drug-induced [[{{Hallucinations}} hallucination]], or an actual ApocalypticLog, is ''oppressingly'' dire:
-->The car is on fire, and there’s no driver at the wheel\\

** The second song, “East Hastings”, was used extensively in the movie ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'', whose director claimed that he had the song in mind when making it. The end of the track, “Drugs in Tokyo/Black Helicopter”, is [[LastNoteNightmare particularly unsettling]].
* ''Lift Your Skinny Fists'' is the band’s brightest album as a whole, but the track “Static” deserves to be here. To hear a guy babbling on about seeing the face of God and dying over a beautiful, somber violin solo creates a SoundtrackDissonance that is quite disturbing. And then there's the second half of the track, “World Police and Friendly Fire/The Buildings They Are Sleeping Now”, whose eeriness can’t be easily described in words.

* “George Bush Cut Up While Talking” consists of a strange buzz-like noise, a high-pitched voice reciting “It is a predominant question: why am I here, and what can I do to make it better? How can I do what is right?” on a loop, and George Bush giving a speech, cut up into random excerpts punctuated by quick, short bursts of applause that sound like static. The combination is ''terrifying''.
** It also doesn’t help that Bush’s speech was cut up to resemble things like “I am against tolerance”. As if the man being in office for eight years wasn’t terrifying enough on its own.
** And it happens to be part of the inspiration for [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP]] [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1981 1981.]]
