The song is in 9/8 time, except for the guitar solo where the rhythm is temporarily changed to 6/4 before going back to 9/8.

It also refers to the iambic meter used in the lyrics of the song as 'Jambi' means 'Iamb' in Finnish.cite web | first = Blair MacKenzie | last= Blake | publisher=Toolband.com | title = Tool Newsletter, July 2006 | url=http://www.toolband.com/news/letter/2006_07.php | accessdate = 2006-08-03 ]

Jambi is also an Indonesian province in Sumatra, which was once part of the powerful Melayu Kingdom. Legends state that it was ruled by a rich sultan who lived an opulent lifestyle; this legend may be the one referred to in the song's lyrics.
