"Get Away" as written by and Colin/martin Emmanuel....
You stay all in one piece when broken
Kind remarks, and your words soft-spoken
Driving far from the path of destruction
Coming ever so close to throwing it all away again

Is this all some great big lie?
Twisted and working on something deep down
That you should've never kept inside

How much must I live through just to get away?
(All this tension and so alive)
How much must I live through just to get away?
(All this pressure that makes your head feel so tired)

You've been through the worst encounters
Searching out the truth, the light, and way
You have thoughts of peace and silence
Coming ever so close to giving it all away again

Is this all some great big lie?
Sick and disturbing, you want no answers
But you should've never looked inside

How much must I live through just to get away?
(All this tension and so alive)
How much must I live through just to get away?
(All this pressure that makes your head feel so tired)

And sometimes it seems easier to burn it to the ground

Can we get away now?
Can we get away now?
Can we get away now?
please just let this go away

    General CommentIs it just me, or does Earshot sound heavilly influenced by Tool. I mean, when the singer goes into the chorus of "How much must I live through just to get away?" he sounds VERY similar to Maynard that its just scary. Overall a good song, Earshot has some serious potential.

    General CommentI don't think that Earshot sounds like Tool, except for the fact that the lead singer may have a voice somewhat like Maynards. Earshot is a great band and has its own sound that is intense and very pleasing to listen to. Earshot is awesome and should not be recognized as the band that is trying to imitate Tool, but known as a band with their own unique sound.

    General CommentAvatara is right. The singers voice sounds much like Maynrds. And they do sound heavily influenced by Tool.

    General CommentI would like to say that earshot really kicks a$$, and that you can't deny the fact that the lead singer does sound like maynard from tool, but I really don't think that earshot is influenced by tool. The lyrics of earshot compared to tool are nothing alike. So if earshot was trying to be a tool rip off, than their lyrics would have to be similar to tools. I think that earshot is a great band and will continue to produce good music.

    General CommentWell, yes, "Get Away" sounds almost exactly like Tool, and Wil does sound like Maynard, but the rest of the album sounds very little like Tool. Some of the songs on the album are a little boring and repetitive, but for a first time effort it is great. I hope they improve so that we can look forward to their next album.
