On the CD version, "Telson" appears as a hidden track in the pregap. On the vinyl edition of this album, Telson is the final bonus track. There is a four-minute pregap between "Jelena" and "A Life All Mine" that often elongates the length of "Jelena" when the disc is ripped (pregaps are usually appended to the previous track in this process).
