* TakeThat: "As I Am", wrote by John Petrucci, is directed to {{Queensryche}}'s Mike Stone. Specifically, it was written after Mike tried to give John some tips on playing guitar (hence the line "Don't...tell me how to write").

*** ''Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence'' begins with the static that ends ''Scenes from a Memory''.
*** ''Train of Thought'' begins with the chord that ends ''Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence''.
*** ''Octavarium'' begins with the faint piano note that ends ''Train of Thought''.
