Songfacts®:

  • The songs on VHS are woven with a series of "interludes," or bits of audio from the archives from vocalist Sam Harris and his keyboardist brother Casey's family video albums. This interlude was taken from a video of their parents. Sam Harris explained to Pop Monitor:

    "Back in 1998 my dad was asking every member of the family what they've done this year, what they think they'll do next year and where they see themselves in five years, ten years, fifteen years. It just happened that he asked me where I thought I'd be in 2015, which is when our record came out in the States. I said something about wanting to be far way, which is just true now."
