Belated (mid-2005) US Capitol CD adds an additional track ("Empty Room") which did not appear on the 2004 UK/Europe editions, and which Capitol chose to release as a single in the U.S. with an accompanying video. (On the UK/Euro discs, track 2 "Halfway House" crash edits into "Stare." On the US version, Capitol has "Halfway House" crash edited into "Empty Room," and silence preceding "Stare," which follows it).
