One of Tori’s most epic B-Sides, with a clear classical influence.

The line "They say your brain is a comic book tattoo" was used for the title of the comics anthology Comic Book Tattoo based on Tori’s songs. The book was edited by Rantz Hoseley, the friend Tori wrote the song about in the first place and "Flying Dutchman" was also adapted in comics for the anthology. It’s actually the opening story and was written by Rantz Hoseley himself, although he didn’t want to in the first place because he felt too close of the song.
