5 minutes 4 seconds| At the halfway point of the piece, a female voice can be heard saying, "Now boarding to leave Krypton." The second occurrence of this voice, played backwards and altered to sound male, faintly appears to be saying, "You will fly for a hundred years." This happens in a lull where an eerie echo anticipates the return of the battling guitars that began Escape Krypton. I picked up on this bit of unintended backward masking only on subsequent listening, and only after I had, in a late edit, inserted a small fragment of the Baptist hymn, I'll Fly Away, to flesh out the little march that ends Infant Kal-El.
