Train's, "Calling All Angels"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And football teams are kissing queens
Why They're Nonsensical:
Huh? Interesting picture this line puts in my head.

Train's, "Drops Of Jupiter"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance
five-hour phone conversation
The best soy latte that you ever had...
and me
Why They're Nonsensical:
Well, yes. (If you never dance you don't have a first dance.) Yes. (How do you freeze-dry romance? Take out it's moisture? The only thing that would do would 1, kill the romantics, 2, make frenching really nasty.) Yes. (Five hours? On weekends I'm awake for less than 5 hours. Would I waste money for a really long phone conversation?) No. (Who would drink a soy latte? Eww.) No. (I can't imagine you. You're standing in front of me, therefore you are real and I don't have to imagine you.)

Train's, "Drops Of Jupiter"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you even when I know you're wrong
Why They're Nonsensical:
'What rhymes with stickin'...ah yes! Chicken! Better yet, deep fried chicken! Brilliant.' And they constantly switch how they address the person; first it is 'she' then it's 'you'. Then he refers to himself as the best friend in the third person but then immediately again in the first person. It's inconsistent, and just stupid.

Train's, "Drops Of Jupiter"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Why They're Nonsensical:
It was fine that they sung about imagining no love or pride, this bit of the line makes it seem like a deep and meaningful song...but imagine no deep-fried chicken? Well, I suppose that would kill some people more than not having love or pride...but let's keep the Colonel out of this!

Train's, "Drops Of Jupiter"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Drops of Jupiter in her hair.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Ok, I know it fits the cameo of the song (and is probably a metaphor, although I can't figure out what), but Jupiter is a gaseous planet. Got that? Good. And, if it had 'drops', then those 'drops' would be deadly gas; and if they were in this woman's hair, then, she'd be suffocating.

Train's, "Drops Of Jupiter"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly
so he never did land
Why They're Nonsensical:
OK, as far as I know, in order to land you have to be up in the air flying in the first place. So this line makes no sense. (or is it just me?)

Train's, "Eggplant"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Hold up my wings cause you are the sky
Paint me by numbers and don't ask me why
I am in bloom and you are per-fume
and you are per-fume, and you are...
Why They're Nonsensical:
I love this song and it's by my fav band, but honestly...could this possibly be how he picked up Ginean? If a guy walked up to me and said that, complete with the "eggplant and caviar for you, for you, for you, for you's", I'd call the nuthouse.

Train's, "Landmine"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Then I stepped upon a landmine
And I saw my future rise
Why They're Nonsensical:
Usually if you step on a landmine, you are left horribly disfigured....and Pat Monahan is one of the most handsome men I've ever seen! Bwahaha! Maybe I need my eyes checked.

Train's, "Meet Virginia"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
She only drinks coffee at midnight.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Midnight is not a very good time to drink coffee. It will be hard for you to sleep.

Train's, "Meet Virginia"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Well she wants to be the queen
and she thinks about her scene.
Pulls her hair back as she screams
I don't really want to be the queen.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Come on Train, which is it? You can't have it both ways. Either Virginia wants to be the queen or she doesn't.

Train's, "Meet Virginia"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Well she wants to live her life
Then she thinks about her life
Pulls her hair back as she screams
Why They're Nonsensical:
What does screaming have to do with anything? Unless she does most of her important life decision making in the sack, which would be pretty sad.

Train's, "Play That Song (2010s - use COUNTRY)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Hey, Mr. DJ, when you gonna spin it?
My baby's favorite record, she's been waiting for a minute.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Somebody needs to learn patience. The DJ's been working for A MINUTE, and you're already hounding him about a song he hasn't played yet?!

Train's, "Save Me San Francisco"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I used to love the tenderloin until I made some tender coin.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Why would coins make you give up tenderloin?

Train's, "Train"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Your lip is about to shine
For a fee you'll be happy to be...mine
Why They're Nonsensical:
'Your lip is about to shine'? Train rule, but I don't quite get this line. Or why he wants the person to whom he's singing, to be his for a fee. A side note...this is a track called 'Train' off an album called 'Train' by the band called 'Train'! They must really like that word...
