- Contrary to popular believ, the demo version of Space-Dye Vest is not the widly spread via internet version where Kevin Moore sings, but rather the much more rare demo with James singing.
- Mike alludes that there is a Kevin Moore vocal demo of Lie.
- Space Dye Vest and 6:00 were written almost completely by Kevin Moore before the other members heard the songs. Innocence Faded was done by John Petrucci.
- Mike finally reveals that the lyrics to Innocence Faded were written as John's views about Kevin leaving the band.
- The end instrumental section of The Mirror eventually became the song Lie. The song also contains some extra lyrics that were cut.
