The visually stunning four-minute clip was directed by Wes Richardson ( and builds upon the story laid out in The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues (2011 EP) and the forthcoming, 12-track concept album The Parallax II: Future Sequence.  “To see lyrics and music come to life in a video is an unexplainable feeling.  I literally am speechless every time I watch what he has done with this video,” explains singer/songwriter Tommy Rogers.  “When we decided to create a video for this song I never expected to have visuals of this quality.  Wes has done an outstanding job of taking the lyrics and creating a world that won’t let the viewer turn away.  We are very lucky to have such talented people surround us.”

Richardson, explored a design structure that would make up the creator’s dream while floating through space.  This structure is a digital blueprint of the world he once knew.  Richardson also made use of location photography, footage, and photo-real visual effects to capture the surface on the planet.
