Trivia[change | change source]

  • The song "One Day Women Will All Become Monsters" is a reference to Shakespeare's play King Lear. Many of the lyrics from the song as well as the title of the song are taken almost word for word from the play.
  • The song "To Trixie And Reptile, Thanks For Everything" is a reference to old girlfriends of band members Craig Owens and Bradley Bell
  • Craig Owens said that the song "Baby, You Wouldn't Last a Minute on the Creek" is about Craig wanting to quit the band, not about the end of a relationship like many people thought.
  • The song title "There's No Penguins in Alaska" was a fact from inside the cap of Snapple.
  • The end of the song "Baby, You Wouldn't Last A Minute On The Creek" is actually the first track, "Prelude", in reverse
