Lyrics to track 3 "are based on an original Mesopotamian myth entitled 'The Seven Evil Spirits' (translated by R.C. Thompson in The Devils And Evil Spirits Of Babylonia, London, 1903); they are freely interpreted and adapted." Note that though the song has two 'movements', it is in fact a single track.

Track 11 is unlisted on the back cover. From the liner notes: "[T]he extemporized ophthalmic release on track 11 is performed live in the studio."
