The lyrics deal with contemplative themes, albeit seen in a more positive manner compared to the band's earlier work.

Miscellanea

  1. Yield: In chemistry, yield, also referred to as reaction yield, is the amount of product obtained in a chemical reaction. The absolute yield can be given as the weight in grams or in moles.
  2. Yield: In finance, the term yield describes the amount in cash that returns to the owners of a security such as the interest or dividends received from a security. Normally, it does not include the price variations, at the difference of the total return. Yield applies to various stated rates of return on stocks, fixed income instruments, and some other investment type insurance products.
  3. Yield: In viticulture, the yield is a measure of the amount of grapes or wine that is produced per unit surface of vineyard, and is therefore a type of crop yield. Two different types of yield measures are commonly used, mass of grapes per vineyard surface, or volume of wine per vineyard surface.
  4. Yield in college admissions is the percent of students who choose to enroll in a particular college or university after having been offered admission. It is calculated by dividing the number of students who choose to enroll at a school, which is often based on their decision to pay a deposit, by the number of offers of acceptance and multiplying by one hundred. A higher yield indicates greater interest in enrolling at a particular school of higher education. The yield rate is usually calculated once per year based on admissions statistics. As a statistical measure, it has been used by college ratings services as a measure of selectivity, such that a higher yield rate is a sign of a more selective college. For example, the yield rate for Harvard University was 76% in 2010, while the yield rate for the Dartmouth was 55%, and the yield rate for Colorado College was 37%.
