about

This eponymous debut album by Hitherside was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Hitherside’s very own engineer/producer Sam Oerlemans in their home studio, dubbed 7th Circle Studio. He is also an accomplished multi-instrumentalist who played all the instruments on the album. All the songs were written by Sam and singer, Jennifer Summer. Many of their songs are based on personal life experiences. They landed an endorsement deal with PreSonus Audio Electronics with the release of their debut single/video, ‘Insignificant Other’. PreSonus quotes that “Hitherside is a radio-ready, Alt-Rock, one-two punch that explores the dichotomy of heavy guitars paired with female vocals. The result is intense, emotional and highly listenable music”.

Track Name: Karma Comes Calling
Doorbell’s ringing
Who can it be
It’s that kind of delivery.
Yet again.

Who you think you fooling
Should’ve seen it coming.

Ricocheted ego off your looking glass
Caught up to you from your malevolent past
Ring ra ring ring
Karma comes calling

You bit off more than you could chew
But all the while you’ve learned nothing new
It must drive you insane
Was the high worth the pain

Could’ve seen it coming

Ricocheted ego off your looking glass
Caught up to you from your malevolent past
Ring ra ring ring
It’s that bitch again
Karma Comes Calling

Here comes karma
Just around the corner
She’s got a thing or two to show you
It’s coming soon

Was the high worth the pain
Should’ve seen it coming.

Don’t you go and think that you can do whatever you want to
Illusion plays inside your head like you got it right
Instead you’re gonna need a miracle

Or a special hiding place to go
Hear the sound of footsteps
That’s karma catching up to you

Ricocheted ego off your looking glass
Caught up to you from your malevolent past
Ring ra ring ring
Ring ra ring ring
It’s that bitch again
Karma comes calling
Track Name: Over the Edge
She charms you with the wink of an eye
Chemical romance the curious kind
Decide to give it a try

Visions of pink elephant skin
Acid dreams and hallucination
You’re stroking the sky

Light her up, swallow it down, breathe her in till you’re floating around.
You’re hooked. She takes you over the edge.

You’re comin’ down fast like a ton of lead bricks
Wondering where to get your next fix
So cold and alone

Desperation’s doing you in
Sweating and dreading are wearing you thin
Feeling lower than low

Light her up, swallow it down, breathe her in till you’re floating around
You’re hooked. She takes you over the edge.

Her strangle on you is stronger than yourself
She pumps you up with inabilities

Light her up, swallow it down, breathe her in till you’re floating ….
You’re floating around
Light her up, swallow it down, breathe her in till you’re floating around
You’re hooked. You’re hooked
Light her up, swallow it down
She takes you over the edge
Track Name: Insignificant Other
You’re out for the day, or so you say
Mystery strips my mind, then becomes conscious again
Did I cling onto a dream
Suddenly I see that love comes at a price.

Look at me
Hear me
Do you hear me
Speak to me
Is this a fantasy
Look at me
Look at me
Hear me
Do you hear me
Speak to me
This is my reality

I am the Insignificant Other
I am the Insignificant Other

I stay alone while years hurry on
Here I am nowhere to turn, but to myself
Finally, time will mend me
Finding a home for my soul, that’s what it takes.

Look at me
Hear me
Do you hear me
Speak to me
Is this my destiny
Look at me
Look at me
Hear me
Do you hear me
Speak to me
This is my reality






I am the Insignificant Other
I am the Insignificant Other

Since I’m not seen, you see no tears I weep.
Since I’m not heard, you hear no cries of pain.
If you don’t speak to me, how will we ever grow?
You won’t know my tales of sorrow.

All of those years one after another
As the Insignificant Other

I am the Insignificant Other
Track Name: Learned to Loathe
Everything changes
We started out strong, but all has gone terribly wrong
Your true color shines through
Revealing the darkest of grey
Making it so sad to say that

I’ve learned to loathe you
And even more
I won’t shed a tear should you walk out that door
Loathing you is a daily routine
You surely must know what I mean
I’ve learned to loathe you
I’ve learned to loathe you

Compliments gone
No love in the air
Nobody to lean upon

Are you aware of just what I think
Or do you not care that we’re here on the brink
There’s no denying that I feel like crying
There’s something that you ought to know

I’ve learned to loathe you
And even more
I won’t try to stop you should you walk out that door
Loathing you is a daily routine
You surely must know what I mean
I’ve learned to loathe you
I’ve learned to loathe you
I’ve learned to loathe you

I feel like running away
There’s a side of you I wish I never knew
It’s only a matter of time before I go
Before I go out of my mind
It’s only a matter of time before I leave
Before I leave you behind

There’s something that you ought to know
It’s only a matter of time before I go
You leave me no choice but to loathe you
Track Name: Asked But Not Answered
There you go
You’ve gone and done it again
Feeding your habits nearly left us stone broke
I'm wondering will it ever
Come to an end

I have one foot out the door
But I'll ask you once more

Why? What did you have to do that for
It was completely uncalled for
Why? What did you have to do that for
Now I wonder what else is in store

Next time around
There's something else that I found
I can't believe it
But you have another
That's making me
The insignificant other

This anger fills my heart
It's tearing me apart
This rage is running through my veins
It keeps me in chains

I have two feet out the door
But I'll ask you once more

Why? What did you have to do that for
It was completely uncalled for
Why? What did you have to do that for
I don't know if I can take anymore

Why? What did you have to do that for
That was completely uncalled for
Why? What did you have to do that for
I don't think I can take anymore





What did you have to do that for
That was totally uncalled for
Why? What did you have to do that for
Now I know I can't take anymore
Track Name: Out of Line
You call me up again
Staking your claim in self-defense
Tearing me down's your aim
And the aching's making me feel so sick
You've had your say
Now be on your way
You're my bone of contention
Every single solitary day
Drop kick my heart
Then go and tear it all apart
Callin' me honey
While stealin' my money
Snip and chip me away
You prey and betray
You're way out of line
What you call yours
Started out as mine
That's something you cannot deny
You don't want to believe
Or even conceive
You are way out of line
You've had your say
Now be on your way
You're my bone of contention
Every single day
Drop kick my heart
Then go and tear it all apart
Callin' me honey
While stealin' my money
Snip and chip me away
You prey and betray
You're way out of line


Push comes to shove
Just gimme it straight
Choking, provoking me with a debate
You've got your reasons
Like you know it all
There's no cohesion
You're taking a fall
You're way out of line
So way out of line
Drop kick my heart
Then go and tear it all apart
Snip and chip me away
You prey and betray
You're way out of line
So way out of line
Track Name: In Solidarity
Let’s go and lay it on the line
So simply this message defined
Rolled into one
All combined.
In solidarity

I’ll warm your blood that runs cold
You’ll be my secret untold
That’s hand in glove from above
In solidarity

You catch me I fall
You catch me I fall
‘Cause after all

We’re one and the same
Like fire to a flame
It’s how we became in solidarity

The wave in your ripple effect
Is a feeling I’ll never forget
All in a row, not alone
In solidarity

I’m dreaming what’s on your mind
You’re weaving ties that will bind
Common ground is what we found
In solidarity

‘Cause after all

We’re one and the same
Like fire to a flame
It’s how we became in solidarity

We’ll get in on the action
Stand our ground, spin it round, shut it down
Follow the other direction
Take it to a higher ground


We’re one and the same
Like fire to a flame
It’s how we became in solidarity
Catch me I fall
Catch me I fall
Because after all
It’s how we became in solidarity
Track Name: The Letdown
Time takes its toll you see
On a union that is not meant to be
Stagnant days and lonesome nights
Is it ever gonna feel all right
Mediocrity plain as day
You’ve really got nothing to say
Over and over in my mind
I wonder

Is this as good as it’s gonna get
I ask with a sigh
Feels like it’s as good as it’s gonna get
It comes as no surprise

You know I’ve been let down
Most of the time you’re not even around
Feeling so far removed
Being so used and confused

Is this as good as it’s gonna get
My eyes are open wide
Looks like it’s as good as it’s gonna get
It pains me deep inside
How can you not see why

Lost in time, dimension and space
Almost as if I’m running in place
Like a slow and silent midnight train
You pass me by as my sorrow remains
Rainbow light shines so bright
But the rain still falls on me
It falls on me

I’ve been
I’ve been letdown
You know I’ve been letdown

Do you even notice yet
That this is as good as it’s gonna get
Track Name: Dead End
Sometimes people don’t realize
That the cause of love’s demise
Comes from a lack of compromise
Like a downward spin into oblivion
Down to the ground our bridges have burned
But you don’t seem concerned
What I have to tell you
Is something long over due

You’ve got to know this is the end
No chance to make amends
There’s no more need to pretend
We’ve come to a dead end
Never to rise again

Sometimes people don’t know when to say goodbye
When a love they visualized
Doesn’t materialize
Stop looking the other way
As if everything’s ok
No point in holding on
When it’s all gone

Don’t you know this is the end
It’s not hard to comprehend
There’s no more need to pretend
We’ve come to a dead end
Never to rise again

Have you no idea of the state we’re in
I have no doubt that it’s over and out
There’s nothing left to be said
But to say that we are dead

You’ve got to know this is the end
There’s no more need
Need to pretend
We’ve come to a dead end
Never to rise again
Track Name: Eventide
I vanish in the night
My best part of the day
Where I dream away my plight
And sleep my dread away

Daylight ending
Peace is on its way

Come on twilight, bring the dark of day
Close my eyes and let me be lead astray
I dream a dream so real yet not quite what it seems
And in my mind, I find the freedom to unwind
In total bliss
I cannot miss
This feeling deep inside

Break of dawn arrives
Nightmare once again
Sanity deprived
Time and time again
Time and time again
Daylight rising
War is on its way

Come on twilight, bring the dark of day
Close my eyes and let me be lead astray
I dream a dream so real yet not quite what it seems

Eventide on my side
My best part of the day
Where I sleep my dread away
Eventide
Track Name: Psychobabble
Welcome to the world of modern myth
Sin in belief without all the evidence
Nothing revealed, nothing explained
Simplification’s well maintained
Do we listen, do we care
Messing with our minds, better beware
Looks like they are out of hand
Calling for truth upon demand

Do we understand our rationality’s
A twist on reality

Who we are, whatever we’ll be, we should follow our dreams
That’s the psychology

Pretend that we are wise to the game
Nobody needs to complain
We might be good enough
Just as we are

Do we understand our rationality’s
A twist on reality

Who we are, whatever we’ll be, we should follow our dreams
We can have anything
That’s the psychology

Psychobabble dumbs us down
Givin’ us the run around

Pretend that we are wise to the game

Do we understand our rationality’s
A twist on reality

Whatever we’ll be, we should follow our dreams
We can have anything
That’s the psychology
Don’t believe everything
We don’t have to agree
It’s a dichotomy
Is it our prophecy
Track Name: Detrimental
Is it not plain to see

For years you've shattered my life
You have rattled my fragile bones
And it's all too well known
Evil's your reflection
Sinister smile all the while
You don't know when enough is enough

Why does it have to be this way

Is it not plain to see you kill me with your detrimental mentality
And as my world crashes down, indifference adorns your face

I stand at absolute zero
I'm totally numb and then some
What have I become
Here in isolation
Happiness I seldom feel it
I yearn to buy it, beg for it, steal it
I yearn to buy it, beg for it, steal it

It doesn't have to be this way
It hurts me to say

That it's so clear to see you kill me with your detrimental mentality
And as my world crashes down, indifference adorns your face

Can't you be good, friendly and fine
Like you were once upon a time
Now you're maliciously cold
Wickedly two-fold
All in your demented mind

How can it be you don't see you kill me with your detrimental mentality
And as my world crashes down, indifference adorns your face

Why don't you see you kill me with your detrimental mentality
And as my world crashes down, indifference adorns your face

Imagine how it would feel
If you were here in my place
