Trivia[edit]

  • The song "One Day Women Will All Become Monsters" is a reference to Shakespeare's play King Lear. Many of the lyrics from the song as well as the title of the song are taken almost word for word from the play.
  • The song "To Trixie And Reptile, Thanks For Everything" is a reference to old girlfriends of band members Craig Owens and Bradley Bell[7]
  • The song "There's No Penguins In Alaska" is made up from a number of Shakespeare's sonnets. The chorus comes from line 5 of Shakespeare's Fifth, the term "murderous shame" is borrowed from line 14 of his Ninth, and the lyrics "The worst was this; my love was my decay" are taken from line 14 of his Eightieth.
  • The line "star-crossed lovers" from the song "Expired In Goreville" is derived from William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
  • Sandie Jenkins is a woman from Bradley Bell's church who would call his mother, and he could not recall where he had met her, thus the track title.
  • In a Podcast interview with AP Magazine, Craig Owens revealed that the song "Baby, You Wouldn't Last a Minute on the Creek" is lyrically about Craig wanting to quit the band, not about the end of a relationship like majority assumed.
  • The song title "There's No Penguins in Alaska" was originally a Snapple fact from inside of the cap.
  • The end of the song "Baby, You Wouldn't Last A Minute On The Creek" is actually the first track, "Prelude", in reverse.
  • In the song, "All Nereids Beware", the opening line "This spring of love resembles the uncertain glory of an April day" is a modern adaptation of a line said by Proteus in the Shakespearean play The Two Gentlemen of Verona.
  • The Phrase "I'll Stop Stabbing When You Stop Screaming" is printed on the side of the liner behind the CD tray.
