Anomalistics is the scientific approach to understanding unexplained phenomena. Where technological measurements fail to account for an observed phenomenon, the mind is left to rationalization... or, in the case of television, this leaves a gap for sensationalization. For the track as a whole, the lyrics take the scientific route while the music goes with televised sensationalism. The "You Can't Spell Psychadelic Without Chad" part of the title comes in thanks to Tristan Skybreak, who noted that a search in iTunes for "Chad" pulled up tracks that had misspelled "psychedelic" as "psychadelic". Applicable? Definitely.

For the past ten fucking years I've been filling up these little black books with quotes pertaining to things that I had some special interest in. Then, over the next couple years, I started to learn what it was that I had a special interest in, and it was anomalistics. There's such a rich, rich anomalous history in this world that people don't give themselves over to because classic empiricist reasoning demands that they not. I hated the fact that science approached things the way that it did, with just this cold, hard calloused empirical reasoning: I can smell it, I can see it, I can taste it. There are fringe aspects of science--metaphysics, parapsychology--but everything else kinda really tends to dwell in the shadows or in the fringe areas, you know, and that's where T.V. picks it up.
