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.
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.

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
