Dave 'Avey Tare' Portner wonders, "how I even wrote this song, does this not occur to almost everyone?" as he croons about the state of our planet. Josh "Deakin" Dibb told AUX Magazine: "I was really psyched on the lyrical content of it from Dave's perspective in terms of liability. I guess it's one of the closest things we have to an environmental song. That's him struggling with the reality of our environmental footprint. I get really pysched on that side of it. It almost reminds me, energy-wise, like what was cool about the JB's. And Bob Marley. Not that I think most people would pick up on any sort of message in that regards, but I think that's sort of cool, that it kind of feels like that to me when playing it."
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
