- Creator Breakdown: A New Day At Midnight was written after his father died, and "The Other Side" in particular is about him trying to deal with this.
- One-Hit Wonder: Averted, though it looked for a while like "Babylon" was going to be his one big hit. Since then he has had several other successful singles, though "Babylon" is still his best known song and his only big hit in America.
- Shrug of God: The meaning of the lyrics of "Alibi". Gray says it was a stream of consciousness experience writing it, so he doesn't really know what it means. Same with several other tracks that he more or less comes up with off the cuff, including "Foundling".
