* GeniusBonus: Melora Creager is a history buff, and it shows in her lyrics. For instance, "1816, The Year Without A Summer" happened in RealLife pretty much as the lyrics describe, and the Thursday Christian referenced on ''Oh Perilous World'' was a real person (son of the leader of the MutinyOnTheBounty).
