-->You guys are all real people out there right? Real people have real problems and the problem, that I find with a lot of people is usually in some point in your life there's a person very close to you that you love...who needs help. The problem is that usually the time when this person needs the most help, is the time when they don't want your help. This next song is about that person that everybody has or will have.

** "Naveed", especially the bridge.
--> There he's on his knees again\\
Trying hard to understand\\
Why Naveed would let a young man die\\
Convinced that he might break\\
He reaches for that phone\\
And another day has gone\\
Oh another day has gone
** "Are You Sad?" fittingly. Sung from the perspective of a person trying to convince their friend YouAreNotAlone, but they refuse to listen. Introduced by Raine Maida once as follows:

Added DiffLines:

* BlackSheepHit: While most of their discography prior to ''Gravity'' can be considered post-grunge, it was that album's lead single "Somewhere Out There" (which is more soft rock than anything) that became their biggest hit in America.

* CanonDiscontinuity: A good chunk of the fanbase rejected the Bob Rock-produced ''Gravity'' and much of the ArenaRock stuff that came afterward.
* EvenBetterSequel: ''Naveed'' was well-received and let the band make a name for themselves well enough, but ''Clumsy'' was, by Canada standards, a blockbuster, reaching diamond status.
* ParanoiaFuel: "The Birdman" from ''Naveed'' is just about an odd man Raine Maida met on the street. But the way the lyrics paint the picture, it sounds like he's singing about some kind of serial killer.
* TearJerker: "Thief," about a fan that succumbed to cancer.
** If you have a rough relationship with your father, "4am" is gonna hit home ''really'' hard.
