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

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

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

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

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

Out of Line 03:15
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

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

The Letdown 04:13
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

Dead End 04:14
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

Eventide 05:11
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

Psychobabble 04:05
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

Detrimental 03:39
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

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”.
