I saw something more that no one else can see. I found peace in sure tragedy. And when others said "Its not your place. You don't belong". I bit my tongue, bottled it up and swallowed. My mistake for believing. I blame myself for this mess I made. In time i've seen enough to know that your words, they hold no truth. There's nothing left to hold on to. I should've seen it from the start but i fucked up and i went all in for nothing. I didn't know that there was no sense of stability. I put my faith in only to be sadly mistaken. i can't believe you're so far from what you claim to be. Each time you'll see, you'll watch reality fold. And all the lies that you told, you'll pay the price for it all because this shit is getting old. I felt something more that no one else could feel. I had hopes for something real. And i can take this time to justify, or leave the pieces on the floor still scattered and broken. I had hopes for something real. I hoped for something real. My mistake for believing. I blame myself for the mess i made. In time i've seen enough to know. In time i've seen enough but I'd still wait for you. How can i put my faith in anything? It's hard to trust any one anymore. It's all a fucking lie and i'm sadly mistaken. I should've known, I can't believe i fell for it. Never again will i let you in.
The beginning of something great!
From the opening post rock instrumentation of the 1st track to the emoting pleading lead vocals; you can tell immediately that Gates is something different & special.
At times reminiscent of Thrice & Thursday vocally "Fear" sets the sonic blueprint for how "Post - whatever" bands with vocals can be so powerful in both form and presence.
Gates angst is fresh and liberating! Agent K
