The Meaning Behind The Song: “In My Side” by Vision Video
As a music enthusiast, I have always been fascinated by the way songs can capture emotions and experiences in a way that mere words often cannot. One such song that has recently caught my attention is “In My Side” by Vision Video. I remember stumbling upon this song at a friend’s house, and from the very first note, I was captivated.
With its haunting melody and poignant lyrics, “In My Side” delves deep into themes of pain, betrayal, and darkness. The song opens with the lines, “Yeah your words are sharp, the way they cut into my skin. You know I’ll want to feel it again.” These words paint a vivid picture of a toxic relationship where the speaker is willingly subjecting themselves to emotional harm. It can be interpreted as a metaphorical representation of being drawn to pain, perhaps out of some twisted desire for familiarity or emotional intensity.
Throughout the song, the motif of a knife is introduced, symbolizing the tangible pain inflicted by someone close. The lyrics, “That I feel your knife in my back, I can feel your knife in my side” evoke a raw and visceral imagery, suggesting a deep sense of betrayal and hurt. The repetition of these lines only amplifies the emotional intensity, drawing the listeners into the dark and tormented world of the speaker.
The chorus, with its powerful refrain of “And my body’s bare in this murder scene, and it’s always there reminding me,” further emphasizes the magnitude of the emotional turmoil the speaker is experiencing. It creates a sense of inescapability, as if the pain and trauma are constantly hovering over them, a haunting presence that refuses to dissipate.
While the song is undeniably dark, there is a certain beauty and catharsis in its honesty and vulnerability. It speaks to the universal experience of pain and the complexity of human relationships. We have all experienced moments where we willingly subject ourselves to emotional harm or find solace in the familiarity of our own suffering. “In My Side” confronts these emotions head-on, forcing us to confront the darker aspects of ourselves and our experiences.
Released as part of their album “Inked in Red” in 2021, “In My Side” showcases the unique fusion of rock and gothic rock that defines Vision Video’s sound. With Tom Ashton’s production, the song amplifies its emotional impact, combining atmospheric instrumentals with raw and honest lyrics.
Despite its dark themes, “In My Side” offers solace to those who have experienced similar emotions. It serves as a reminder that we are not alone in our pain, and that through music, we can find a sense of connection and understanding.
