It's all in your mind. So show your fear on your own time and keep it out of my sight. I'll tell you now that there is no compromise. Just like the sun we will rise. Don't spend your time investing all you have into another life. It's something you can't afford. So flip your lock and open, ambition's at your door. I spent most of my twenty years afraid of moving on. And with passion and my mothers help, i chose to follow a dream, and made a man of myself. You, you only take what you're handed because you can't think straight on your own. You take things for granted and act like you never knew. Maybe you'll never know. So fucking open your eyes. Just like the sun we will rise. It's in my mind. I toss and turn in my bed thinking of everything. I'll keep my eyes straight ahead holding the flame tight. You told me that you'd give anything up. You told me that it's the one thing you've always dreamed of. In time there's no compromise. So fucking open your eyes. You, you're the one to take everything for granted. How's it coming along? Please tell me. What's on your mind? I'll tell you mine, no compromise.
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
