So tired Soul searching I followed the sounds to a cathedral Imagine my surprise to find that they were produced by Brian Eno
Past the gates Quite stark The roses trimmed and the windows dark I see the walls through a limestone crack Not red not blue not yellow but black And all the spaces left for you If the sky was synthesized you'd probably know
He taught me many things The wisdom of o bleak stratagems The prophet of a sapphire soul Presented through creative freedoms And everything I say is true Cuz if I was telling lies it'd probably show
I can tell that he's kind of smiling But what does he know? We're always one step behind him, he's Brian Eno Brian Eno
When I was stuck he'd make me memorize elaborate curses Tinctures and formulas to ditch the choir and flip the verses My whole foundation came unglued When I tried to humanize by ambient light Dipping swords in metaphors yeah but what does he know? We're always one step behind him, he's Brian Eno Brian Eno!
He promised pretty worlds and all the silence I could dream of Brian peter George St John Le Baptiste De La Salle Eno
Well all alone by the oldest stone where the shade Trees grow the creature by the water feature with a Ghostly glow making sure that time's preserved Well we reap what we sow We're always one step behind him, he's Brian Eno

Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
Stephens Stills played timbales on the Bee Gees hit, "You Should Be Dancing." He was in the next door studio laying down a Crosby, Stills and Nash album and could hear Saturday Night Fever being recorded. Stills recognized its potential to be a monster hit and he wanted to contribute.
A key line in "Africa" is "I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become," which is about drifting away from what you really want in life. Toto keyboard player David Paich, who wrote the song, felt his work was consuming him.
