The man himself on Overtime (while searching for unattainable lyrics): "This thing is heavy. I wanted to make a driving Stranglers-style song. Thick pop. I'm pretty sure I redlined everything, and just limited it to death. I wanted to pack as much forceful energy into a tube and send it onto some futuristic motorway where it would bump and edge out other songs sent the same way. It's about the daily grind in some dystopian city, and the need to push on at all costs. It's unquestioned labor, and singing while you do it. My voice is about as thick as it gets on this song, as I wanted to convey a multitude of people chanting as they work. "And the relative passage, you have to fade to fade up.": In essence, this means in order to get to heaven, you have to fade out, to fade up."
