Drummer Jay Blaisdell: "Overall, the song is about applying the concept of cymatics (the effects of sound & vibrational frequency on matter), to tripping hard on shrooms. Basically it's describing the trip of all trips. A hallucinogenic experience so intense that the auditory hallucinations experienced actually cause a cymatic alteration to the persons physical reality and existence, or even everyones physical reality and existence. It's a pretty fucked up scenario. I personally have had really intense trips with both visual and auditory hallucinations. The sounds hallucinated are always indistinguishable from the real vibrational sounds. The whole concept has always intrigued me."
Director Jim Foster: "As we embarked on our second video together my goal was to portray Abnormality's intense energy on a large scale while bringing their concept of a "trip" into the darkness of the mind into a reality. And as always, Metal Blade is incredibly supportive in letting bands and directors see their visions through."

I break through and bear witness
To the world melting away
To the echoes of cymatic hallucination
Vibrations translate instantly
Into patterns that invade and saturate
My perception through cymatic hallucination
Augmenting, the limits of reality
To ridiculous, capacities
The walls of consciousness are caving in
My mind expands and strives to understand
Omniscience through cymatic hallucination
This is just a doorway
To a greater state of mind
A glimpse beyond the fallacy
Vivid clarity through my third eye
Molting, toxic, conditioning
My soul cleansed, solace, unlimited
Complete integration, spirituality
Interpretation through a lens of clarity
Disintegration of disparities
Hallucinations, or reality?
