Added DiffLines:

* DoubleMeaningTitle: The song "Even Now" uses the title phrase both as a description of time ("even now, after all these years...") and as a description of the current state of the relationship between the protagonist and his ex ("I guess we're even now").

* AGoodNameForARockBand: One version of [[http://verticalhorizonfaq.tripod.com/#q17 the story]] goes that while Keith Kane was writing down a list of possible names, he wrote the word "vertical" then drew a horizontal line along the bottom of the word. The rest, as they say, is history.

* NeverSayGoodbye: The message behind "Forever."
--> '''Matt Scannell:''' You just need to mourn it, you need to shoulder it for a while and kind of move through it until you can get back up straight again and move on, or at least not let it go. That's what this song is about, it's about not letting go, but not letting it stop you.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: The idea behind "You're a God," which is stated to be based on the level of power others have over a person or vice-versa.
--> '''Matt Scannell:''' Really, the title is ironic: you're a god and I am not--well, that's actually not true anymore, because now you're ''not'' a god.
