A.J. Minette - "While this song is not explicitly about the Faust legend, it deals with similar lyrical themes. It explores the idea of giving up one's identity and sense of self for something that is not worth it. Instrumentally, the music explores the Hirajoshi scale, functional harmony and key relationships based on chromatic mediants. Also, the bass line (lowest guitar and bass) of the chorus is a nod to Brahms' Cello Sonata No. 1 in E minor."
