Deep in to the recording of their debut album, this single builds on the theme of dark inward looking soul gazing. It takes the pain and suffering and spits it back out in a biting and angry salvo aimed at ghosts from the past. The string and guitar laden track packs an emotional punch, starting with contemplation before all hell breaks loose with a glorious crescendo that clearly evidences the catharsis in Cate’s vocals. There’s a sadness amongst the fire.

Look at what you’ve done, look at what you’ve lost..


Take the lead
If you need
Why sit in between?
Why disagree?

Take the lead,
Find the need.
You’re in between
Ready to disagree

I could lower the level if I wanted to
But you’re so stuck with a vision

You’ve taken the lead
You’ve found the need
We’re in between
Ready to disagree

I’ll take the lead
I’ve found the need
I’m in between
Why not disagree
