- John Linnell spoke about the song in a 1995 interview, four years before its release:
On this record (John Henry), one of the things we did was that John wrote sets of lyrics. I actually asked him to give me ten song titles and instead he wrote ten sets of lyrics and handed them off. So I worked on a couple of them; I came up with "Subliminal" - that was his lyric and I wrote the music, and I wrote another song called "Dark And Metric" which hasn't been released yet but will come out eventually.
