  • Starting at 4:08 when "New Beginning" ends there is an additional five minutes of ambient music. There are long bass and guitar notes that constantly repeat. After about two minutes there are sounds of static and light breathing. Several phrases of gibberish are spoken for the rest of the song.

Album art[edit]

In an interview with VH1, Chris Taylor Brown stated the picture of a man mowing a lawn was selected to show the choices and results an individual can make in life. He elaborated, "Everyone has this path they think they should take – it's the safe route. You go to college; you wake up everyday [sic] and mow the lawn; and go to work for eight or nine hours a day. We didn't want to do that. We wanted to say that you don't have to do what everyone else does. It was an eerie picture, like it was straight out of American Beauty. So we thought it was cool to have on the front."[5][6]
