Bleed American album at
Jimmy Eat World's, "A Praise Chorus"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
So come on Davey, sing me something that I know
Why They're Nonsensical:
This one seems to be pretty nonsensical, 'til you check the liner note -- who the heck is Davey? Answer: He is the lead singer of the band, the Promise Ring, who Jimmy Eat World used to open for back in the day. Many of the verses in 'A Praise Chorus' come from the Promise Ring.

Jimmy Eat World's, "Sweetness"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The sweetness will not be concerned with me.
Why They're Nonsensical:
...say what?! What do you mean, "sweetness will not be concerned"? You are absolutely right..."sweetness" cannot be concerned at all whatsoever... so why even mention it?
