The cover shown on the right is actually half the actual album artwork.
According to artist Dave Patchett, the artwork, when seen in full, has a "dark" and a "light" side, with an asexual "hero character" appearing at ease in both.
Frontman Lee Dorrian's interpretation of it is of a life without religion, where you have to take both the good and bad and make the choices for yourself.
