More info:

From Lance's original J Church website: "Tide Of Fate was inspired by camping in Death Valley with Karin from Spitboy. Hating my job and my mundane life. The dumb metaphor being fast-forwarding through the movie Urgh - A Music War on crystal meth (which I would never do nowadays). Panama is just a dumb long metaphor for petty changes in music scenes. All the characters represent someone from Tim Yo to Gerard Cosloy. The chorus is a palindrome. No Doves Fly Here was originally done by the Mob, one of the Crass bands that really changed my life. That track was only featured on the CDEP version which also included the Sleep single. Birthday is also on the CDEP but hidden way at the end. Part of the layout included a photo of two women holding a huge bored cat. This became the t-shirt design for our first US tour."
