  • The title is a pun on the word "democracy", as discussed in the song’s lyrics.
  • The lyrics of the chorus (Lies to my left, wrong to my right, compassion unknown, this must be the twilight zone. A grizzly affair, caught unaware, why am I so scared? Where have all the flowers gone?) echo the lyrics of The Cross (Ghettos to the left of us, flowers to the right).
