The story of

Virtuality

single / 2020-10-10
electronic ambient poetry / voice, piano, synths, noises

Virtuality is an incredibly deep, heavy alternative song that happened to be created after a very harsh argument. The dark state of mind of reality and life being so hard at times, and the thought of people actually painting their own reality to not be finding the real dark sides of life as bothersome, it feels, Virtuality paints a rainbow picture of that darkness in a very unusual way.

"Virtuality paints a rainbow picture of that darkness in a very unusual way"

The song is not easy to understand nor to digest, but it carries a meaning that Tilly struggles with regularly... a discrepancy of what is real, what is just wanted to be real, and what people only tell to themselves so that they don't have to look at the hard stuff. There is, on the other hand, a kind of beauty in the dark, a kind of a rainbow feeling when accepting that the bad just is and doesn't necessarily have to be "bad."

Virtuality was intentionally created in two versions - the Virtuality, Bass-meant is, as its name suggests, full of bass tones and heavy rhythm while being an allusion of Tilly living in a "basement" for many months. The Virtuality, Second(s) is a second version (some dishes, as well as songs, are as good as to be served seconds as well) - and it feels calmer while the rhythm being underlined by a clock ticking sound.

& lyrics

Virtually everything
 Grows
 Virtual spacing out
 Bright
 Rainbows´┐╝
 Black light
 Rainbows in reality
 
 Hurting yourself hurting others
 Doing the opposite of what we know that bothers
 The fathers 
 Of our want
 Just don't 
 
 Virtually everyone
 Knows
 Literal meaning
 Of might
 Raindrops
 Black skies 
 Rain drops off our pity
 
 Virtues making so much sense
 Vinted features made variously fenced
 In a sense
 Of our need
 We bleed
 
 Rainbow reality
 A black cell 
 Rainbows 
 Rain blows virtuality
 
 Maybe this world is another planet's hell
 Hurting yourself hurting others
 Doing the opposite of what we know that bothers
 The fathers 
 Of our want
 Just don't
