"Forever" is based on "Solveig's Song", written by Edvard Grieg for his Peer Gynt Suites.
"Don't You Cry" .This song was written to honor the memory of Thomas Youngblood’s father, who passed away when he was 12 years old. This song was remade in French as a bonus track under the name “Ne Pleure Pas.”
THE LIGHT I SHINE ON YOU.This is the second song that vocalist Roy Khan wrote about singing for Kamelot (the first was The Fourth Legacy). He once said in an interview that he hated much of the experience of touring, but the hour and a half he spend on stage made it all worth it. This song illustrates how singing for the fans helped him endure the hardships.
ACROSS THE HIGHLANDS.The idea that immortality can be a curse has been repeatedly explored throughout fiction and mythology. This song is Kamelot’s take on the idea, with a protagonist who wants to move on to the afterlife, but can’t.
The trilogy of songs that close the album on the normal edition, "Elizabeth" I, II & III, are based on the story of Elizabeth Bathory.
There is silence from the end of "Fall From Grace" to 11:00. This is because Karma was Kamelot's fifth studio album and they wanted its duration to be 55:55. In the Japanese and iTunes versions of the album, the silence was shortened from six minutes and 46 seconds, to two minutes and 16 seconds, so that the bonus track could fit in.
Once and future king.This song was included as a bonus track on the Japanese version of the album, and tells the story of King Arthur. It is the second song that Kamelot has done using the mythology of their namesake, with the first being The Shadow of Uther.
