These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
However, your mileage will definitely vary regarding the lyrics pertaining to 9/11 and aspartame.
Anvilicious is the point of certain songs in Friend of the People.
Broken Base: The reaction to the more pop-oriented sound of Lasers compared to his previous albums.
He has a Take That to those fans, saying "Funny how I'm only sick, if you never catch a thing..." (A large section of his fans have a tendency to only think he's good if his lyrics have no meaning or the meaning is so subtle it's hard to catch. Anything less complex and he's "dumbing it down" even if the message is the same. May double as being Cursed with Awesome.
"Kick, Push" is about the escapism of a skater and crew. "Kick, Push II" is about the group, but it details why they need the romantic getaway from the hell that is their lives.
"Daydreamin'", "Words I Never Said", "The Emperor's Soundtrack", "Happy Industries", "Streets On Fire", "Twilight Zone", "Spray Paint and Ink Pens", "The Pens and the Needles", even "The Show Goes On"...if you were to list every single A+ song the guy has made, this page would be extremely long. Because while he only has 3 albums out...he has many, many mixtapes with many, many great songs, notably the Fahrenheit 1/15 trilogy.
"The Instrumental". This song is laced with Genius Bonus. Lupe even gave a analysis of it.
Death of the Author: According to his own analysis "The Instrumental" is partly about this (specifically the fact the two characters have their voices removed and doctors taking notes are representative of the audience having their own ideas).
Tear Jerker: "Kick Push II" again, as well as "Fighters".
What anyone's heard of "Beautiful Lasers" so far.
Although it's a positive song, his brand new "The Show Goes On" is a Tear Jerker for multiple reasons, including that it's the single to an album that he and his fans had been waiting/fighting for since three years.
"Words I Never Said" is intense, but has hope in it despite all the darkness in it.
I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
Fear is such a weak emotion thats why I despise it
We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
So scared of what you think of me, Iím scared of even telling you
Sometimes Iím like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
Iím locked inside a cell in me, I know that thereís a jail in you
Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts is finally yelling through
