* LyricsVideoMismatch: "Flowers in the Window", which is a sweet love ditty about the singer comparing the woman they love to the beautiful flowers around them, is set to a music video that features the band wandering into a village populated exclusively by heavily pregnant women [[spoiler:and then finding the sole man in the entire village chained up like an animal in a cage and screaming for help, prompting them to flee for their lives]]. It does become slightly more relevant if you're familiar with the term "flowers in the window" being a euphemism for "pregnant", in which case the song becomes a celebration of the singer's love for their pregnant wife. Still doesn't make the ending of the video anything less of a ShockingSwerve.
