This is one of the key messages on the EP, detailing how the "anomalies" are viewed differently. The actions they take during contact are not observed differently, only the anomalies. What changes how they are viewed? The only constant is the cultural coding that defines the mind of the observer. Musically, this is one of the more three-dimensionally rich tracks on the EP... and a remix is already on the way.

Let's start with the first appearance of the grey alien. Betty and Barney Hill, they were an inner-racial married couple. They were driving home one night; they saw a bright light; they sat back in their cars; they looked at their clocks, and they'd left at eleven o'clock and it was five o'clock in the morning. So they went home, and years passed, but they started suffering from really weird neurosis--really weird things--so they went to see a shrink and the shrink suggested hypnosis. They both gave precisely the exact same account of what had gone on during that missing time. The only problem was that one of the two saw these trollish creatures doing the exact same thing that this guy thought that they were doing to him. This guy, though, saw small, diminutive, grey, wrap-around black almond-eyed creatures. So, they were perceiving the same event, but with little flourishes, which means that--whatever's happening here--is happening "from within us". And, you know, people just automatically... "I don't believe in extraterrestrials", or, you know, "I don't believe in... in fucking tectonic plate differentials", "I don't believe in 'sky beasts'", "I don't believe in extra dimensions", "I don't believe in...". It doesn't their world view. They're the center. But these things are happening to those kinds of people.
