- The video for "Insanity" (although the song was dramatically shortened and censored for it), complete with terrifying dolls, and Mr. Elfman in a straitjacket. The song itself, as well.
- Lyrics-wise, Controller, No One Lives Forever, Pictures of You, and many more.
- "Islands" is definitely one of their creepier-sounding songs, with frenetic, moan-like singing and fast-paced background music.
- And then there's "I'm Afraid", arguably as creepy as "Insanity".
- Also the rarely-heard "Clowns of Death," which is about Nazis.
- "Your sons and daughters, innocent, lay sleeping in their beds/They'll catch them when you're not around and smash their little heads"
- "I-I-I-I love little girls, they make me feel so good!"
- "When he stole the car, nobody dreamed that he would try to take it so far. He didn't mean to hit the poor man, who had to go and die...."
- "His teachers didn't understand; they kicked him out of school at a tender early age just because he didn't wanna learn things, had other interests... HE LIKED TO BURN THINGS."
- "Hey neighbor, let me give you some advice. The Russians are about to pulverize us in our sleep tonight....But go ahead sleep tight in your bed...."
- The song "Just Another Day" is nothing but Paranoia Fuel.
- "Let's have a party; there's a full moon in the sky. It's the hour of the wolf, and I don't want to die. But no one beats him at his game for very long, but just the same, who cares? There's no place safe to hide - nowhere to run, no time to cry. So celebrate while you still can, 'cause any second it may end...."
- Well, it's true.
- Animals came from miles around/So tired of walking so close to the ground/They needed a change, that's what they said/Life is better walking on two legs.
