  • This untethered track is about a guy who falls hard for a clairvoyant. "I was walking through Brooklyn and saw a neon sign that said 'psychic visions,' so I decided to write a song called 'Psychic Visions,'" Electric Six frontman Dick Valentine told Songfacts. "It's about a gypsy woman that is captivating, and the guy in the song is paying tribute to her awesomeness."
  • This song was written by lead singer Dick Valentine (Tyler Spencer) and guitarist Johnny Na$hinal (John Nash). Na$hinal produced it.
  • In the video, directed by Justin Lowe, Dick Valentine goes to a magic lemonade stand, where he enters a portal that takes him to strange worlds. He ends up getting married to a mouthless woman and getting in a fistfight in a swimming pool. He says it was his favorite video to make.
