"Shasta" was inspired by the view of snow-covered volcano Mount Shasta from the Interstate 5 highway.

"Passage" is the only song to date that Vienna has recorded with no instrumental accompaniment, only vocals. It is sung from the point of view of a girl who died in a car crash. The CD liner provides no lyrics for "Passage."

"Green Island Serenade" is a separate, but hidden track found at the end of the album. It is a traditional song performed in Mandarin Chinese.

According to the album insert a portion of the proceeds from this album will go to Amnesty International and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
