All songs (music/words) written by Anthony Price
'Through Endless Eyes' lyrics co written by Jennifer O’Neill Howard
The concept of "The Memory Tree" is inspired by the eponymous children's illustration book by Britta Teckentrup.
The concept of "Sugar" is inspired by the novel "What Dreams May Come" by Richard Matheson.
The introduction of "1896" and coda of "~ Closure - 1972 ~" is inspired by Starman" the 1984 film directed by John Carpenter, composed by Jack Nitzsche.
Every musician gave their own creativity to each song they appeared on; they created something uniquely beautiful.
