  • In an interview with Soundblab, asked about this song's mood and lyrics, JL mentions:
"End of the Rope" is a little closer to a pastiche, a slow ballad that's a desperate cri du coeur. I love the Perry Mason theme, I particularly love the piano... There's certain things I'm always trying to rip off and I suppose that's one of them.
  • Video directed by Chris Smith, who would later direct the video for "Aaa", using footage previously used for the projection screen at TMBG concerts.
