  • Like "Nanobots", this song is about the rapid growth of the human race. "The words have a very blank, disengaged view of human reproduction. The lyrics neither celebrate nor condemn the expanding population. But the music is cheerful." - John Linnell in a 2009 interview with Rolling Stone[1]
  • On each verse, there is a pattern of beats per measure: 7, 6, 7, 6.
  • Most of the lyrics of this song can be found printed on the walls just outside the bathrooms of Woodberry Kitchen[2], a restaurant in Baltimore, MD.
