* Music/DanielAmos: Done with on-the-nose symbolism on the album ''Music/{{Alarma}}''. The dream-like story in the liner notes has a scene where an obscenely wealthy man, wearing ostentatious gold rings on his hands, refuses to help a beggar and kicks him off his doorstep. The narrator {{Face Palm}}s at this... only to notice that he has identical gold rings on ''his'' hands.

** Revisited in ''Music/{{Doppelganger}}''. “Do Big Boys Cry” wonders whether televangelists (the “big boys” of the title) ever admit their mistakes and make amends. The final line of the song is, ''“What do I do? I’m a big boy, too.”'' And “Here I Am” mentions having to watch a church service on the foyer TV (because the chapel was too crowded) and parallels that with the invisible wall that separates the band from their own fans.

* The theme of the Music/ChameleonCircuit song "Exterminate Regenerate" is the comparison of the Doctor and Davros/the Daleks in ''Series/DoctorWho''. What really sells it is that for about half the song it's hard to tell whether the Doctor or Davros is the actual viewpoint character.

* The BlakeShelton-Trace Adkins duet "Hillbilly Bone" and Brantley Gilbert's "Country Must Be Country Wide" both have similar themes: namely, it breaks down the "us vs. them" mindset sometimes present in country music fanbases, and states that Southerners and the rest of the country are not so different.

* BillyJoel's "Leningrad", where he details his friendship between himself and a Russian clown he met while touring the Soviet Union, is supposed to express how the Russians can be as human and moral as Americans are. (The song was written during the Cold War.)

* In [[PinkFloyd Pink Floyd's]] RockOpera ''TheWall'', as he goes mad from isolation and decay from behind his wall, the protagonist rock star Pink becomes, at least in his head, the same kind of totalitarian Fascist leader his dad died fighting against in WorldWarII (which would be the first "brick" Pink would build the wall from).

Added DiffLines:

* Likewise, "Ordinary People" by The Box. This was a common theme in the '80s, where the enmity between the West and the Soviet Bloc had mellowed considerably on both sides yet the people running the US government seemed determined to keep it alive.

* "The Living Years" by Mike and the Mechanics falls into this. Part of the reason the son mourning his deceased father is so cut up about his death is because he realises that a lot of their unresolved conflict was ultimately driven by how similar they are.
