- Narm: In "156" there's the line "From my boat I can see your house". For some reason Jonas mispronounces "boat" and it sounds like he's saying "From my butt I can see your house", unintentionally making it funny.
- Tear Jerker: Thanks to Jonas's fragile voice and the band's penchant for Lyrical Dissonance, they have a ton of these. The one-two punch of "White Lips Kissed" and "Louise Louisa" at the end of Kites, and the old lady singing at the end of "Sometimes Life Isn't Easy" on No More Stories are standouts among the numerous examples.
- True Art Is Incomprehensible: Jonas believes lyrics that only hint at a meaning are better than the ones simply stating it.
