I know you never had the strength to reveal a life that wasn't broken. And I understand the strength it takes to rebuild and try to mend the pieces together. You've seen more shit and more pain then many men. And when no one cared for you, I let you in. I watched you bury your head in your hands and I'm here to let you know I understand. I understand what it takes to move on and put the past away. So put the past away. Our lives were so much the same. The only differences now are the hopes and opportunities. But if you try your strength will regain. You have to pull this one through for you and your family because you could turn it around. Turn this around.I know you never had the strength to reveal a love that was promised. And I understand the strength it takes to rebuild or burn it down and start all over. (At least know I understand) I've been let down by many friends and I was hoping you weren't them. These days I know where my trust is. But aside from this I understand. At least know I understand. I know there's hope inside you man. I know there's hope you just need to find it.
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
