Caitlin of Lacrymosa on "Sylvia (If It Meant)":
"Selah's roots are in Delusion. I wrote Selah after I moved to New York, a place where I learned a remarkable amount about myself, about humanity, and about the world. "Sylvia (If It Meant)" is mostly about the delusion of love. Sylvia, the character, represents a version of me that benefits from hindsight. I first introduced her in "Se Tu M'ami" (on the 'I Was Once (Oh)' EP). I asked her to "help me see the other flowers," as I was stuck on Roses. In "Sylvia (If It Meant)," I am stuck on Buttercups. I like the subject of flowers. In them I find color, texture, shape, beauty, movement, and emotion. I chose the Buttercup in reference to "Build Me Up (Buttercup)" by the Foundations and a tragic Halloween run-in I had with a boy sized Buttercup I knew many years ago."
