ong Notes

* "Would You Have Me Do?" isn't really as long as the track time would suggest. The song itself could be seen as only lasting approximately 5:30, then segues into a ten minute coda that incorporates elements from most of the previous nine songs. The final ten minutes of the track consists mainly of faint, carnival-like sounds before ending with the same sustained chord that ended the coda. At around 24:11, the xylophone in the background plays the melody from Hey Jude by The Beatles.
* 'Hands On The Bible' was used in the film Big Nothing
* 'Hands On The Bible' also features a reference to two Aerosmith songs, Toys In The Attic and Rats In The Cellar. In the song, "attic" and "cellar" are switched, forming the lines "Rats in the attic / Toys in the cellar"
