** ''"Healthy In Paranoid Times"'' is dropped during the bridge of "Will The Future Blame Us".

Added DiffLines:

** A common theme in most of their works. "Are You Sad?" is sung from the perspective of person trying to convince a friend this, but they won't listen, while "A Story About A Girl" is much more forceful and blatant.


** There are exceptions, though: On the heavier side, "All For You", "Whatever" & "Dirty Walls" reach a 6, while songs like "Are You Sad?", "Will Someday Change" & "Apology" are on the softer side, around a 2.



* PostGrunge: Managed to establish themselves in both the first ''and'' second wave of this style. The Bob Rock-produced ''Gravity'' was meant to get them back to basics, and the result isn't all that far removed from TurnOfTheMillennium post-grunge bands like Theory Of A Deadman.

Added DiffLines:

* YouAreNotAlone: A popular interpretation of the TitleTrack from ''Clumsy''. Some would say it's a deconstruction of the trope, in that the protagonist wants to help a friend going down a wrong path, but the friend won't let them in.
