Basic Trope: The lyrics of the song don't make any sense.

  • Straight: The lyrics of "Running" by The Tropers is full of non-sequitur sentences.
  • Exaggerated:
    • Just about every song by The Tropers is composed of an incoherent and utterly surrealist string of inscrutable lyrics.
    • The lyrics in the song consist of no real words at all.
    • "Word Disassociation" by Lemon Demon, in which no word has anything to do with the two next to it, aside from the title itself.
  • Downplayed:
  • Justified:
  • Inverted: The lyrics are straightforward and easy to interpret.
  • Subverted: The lyrics doesn't make sense until it reaches to the second verse where it talks about running a race.
  • Double Subverted: Then the rest of the lyrics drifts away from the meaning and talks about increasingly deranged things.
  • Parodied: The song is titled "The Conservative Platform" or some other title that implies whatever iyts supposedly about is pure nonsense.

  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: The song is an instrumental.
  • Enforced: See Justified.
  • Lampshaded:
    The world is not blue,
    Everyone is doubt,
    I see airplanes under ocean,
    Do you know what we talk about?
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
