The song Ion was forced to sing while in a catatonic state after Nero destroyed her memories and Zill captured her, which was used to endlessly propagate Sharls due to the Astrocyte Modulation Virus that Zill administered to Ion. However, this Cieln's effect has nothing to do with creating Sharls: its true effect is activating "the terminal mode of a virtual Song Magic" that uses energy drawn from the world beyond the Seven Dimensions. In other words, this serves to create a Song Magic Terminal (or in simpler words, a virtual Cielnotron that allows anyone to sing Song Magic if they Synchronize with it) that has access to unlimited energy thanks to being part of the Surge Class of the Surge Concerto Terminal: the main library of the terminal, which is designed to harvest energy from other dimensions through the Ar nosurge Tube and distribute it to Soreil.[1] As this mechanism can harvest unlimited amounts of energy, this allowed Zill to endlessly create Sharls without consuming Ion's own life force, essentially making her into a Sharl mass-production machine.

However, that isn't all there is to the Song: its usage also sent signals to the world beyond the Seven Dimensions, or our world, and the PlayStation Vita game Ciel nosurge: Ushinawareta Hoshi e Sasagu Uta was what could receive these signals. Additionally, the game allowed to send energy back to the Universe of EXA_PICO by scanning barcodes: doing this would absorb and send material energy there, which would create Sharls. It was in this way that communication between both worlds became possible, even though it was through a cruder type of Interdimend than the one the Cieln Class::AR_NOSURGE; made possible.[2][3]

Finally, the reason this Song employs the opening choruses from Ciel nosurge's opening (To the Songless Hill) and why its melodies uses thinly disguised phrases from that game's title screen BGM ("Genometrics") is due to its important role in regards to the overall game world, as well as this Song being the true form of the Ciel nosurge game. Likewise, it is filled with Japanese folkloric elements because Ion's personality is greatly influencing the Song: her experiences and early childhood memories are being expressed into it, and this becomes especially true due to the fact that she isn't conscious as she sings it.[2]

This Song serves as the final ending theme to Ciel nosurge: Ushinawareta Hoshi e Sasagu Uta, as it can be heard as Ion shuts down the terminal the player used to communicate with her, the Interdimend program crashes and the final credits roll appears on screen. On the other hand, it was sung in Ar nosurge: Ode to an Unborn Star after Zill made Delta, Cass and Prim chase her to the Placenta, in the depths of Orei, to get them into a trap. After she made Ion sing this Song, the Micro Quasar began releasing energy and creating the Sharls under Ion's direction, and while Cass and Delta fought the best they could to fend them off, in the end they were overwhelmed by their sheer number and got captured by Zill.
