  • John Linnell, from a 2009 interview with Rolling Stone: "It was indeed written as the introductory theme [for Flood]. ...It seemed appropriate to inaugurate our major-label debut by having the listener pass through a ceremonial archway."
  • Trombone parts performed by Rick McRae.
  • The band Dashboard Confessional's cover album The Wire Tapes Vol. 1 begins with a cover of the song. Instead of introducing Flood, however, it goes: "It's a brand new record of songs we've covered / We hope you like it, here is Volume One."
