All songs are written, produced and performed by Kalmly.

The Story: Within a community, there may exist an ignorance of the individual’s standing. Evil behaviour (in the eye’s of the aforementioned individual) is driven by others’ means of self preservation (the unhealthy ego, general insensitivity, etc), not conscious vindictiveness. The individual then does two things: first increase their own self worth, viewing others as incompetent and lesser (e.g. the Individual being the bigger person) and second, victimising the self through acts of social sacrifice. Sacrifice is therefore concluded to be born of introducing this individual to negative experiences.

Taking from the same, the songs are linked by the overarching theme of positive approaches to dealing with negative experiences. Since if the individual doesn’t, he/she inevitably becomes part of a community which collectively promotes the same detrimental mindset.

Choice of Sonic Appeal: The album features Kalmly's recurring contrast between a punchy falsetto voice (used for high energy choruses) and a more intimate, lower voice. Marimbas have been the primary percussive force for multiple songs in the album. Sections are used to offer a rhythmic variations above all else, and emphasise distinctive patterns on the kick drum (namely an alternation between a four on the floor beat and a Charleston variant).
