Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Such a deep sleep Forgot to breathe Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Redundancy A boring thing No in-betweens Of the extremes Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Clouds are not as soft as they seem Stars always glisten the same Stuck Stuck Stuck Stuck Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream Stuck in a dream God, I just want to wake up God, I just want to wake up God, I just want to wake up God, I just want to wake up God, I just want to wake up God, I just want to wake up God, I just want to wake up God, I just want to wake up Up up up up up Up up up up up Up up up up up Up up up up up

I never said it was an easy conversation, Just not one I need to have with you I have my reasons, which I'll live with Don't need permission from you Negotiations of timing When it's all the same thing Using life as a consequence Nevermind the harm it's causing Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo No apology No apology No apology Don't wanna go through life Seeking validation From a stranger or a neighbor or an institution Before you form your picket lines, Look within your picket fences Your fantasy was never something I needed to live with Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo No apology No apology No apology No apology means no apology No apology means no apology No apology means no apology No apology means no apology

High as night in the bathroom, fan humming Drowning out a chance of thought, bare feet stuck On humid artificial wood, rippled by the moisture Harboring black mold, weighing on the air Swaying like there's no ceiling, and like fingertips aren't stuck Swaying like there's no ceiling, and like fingertips aren't stuck Swaying like there's no ceiling, and like fingertips aren't stuck Swaying like there's no ceiling, I feel so Absent Absent Absent Absent Knees locked, feel the blood stop reaching toes Thighs slow to separate from the bone Strands of hair turn to clumps, matted tile corners What I'd give to help, to make you understand Swaying like there's no ceiling, and like fingertips aren't stuck Swaying like there's no ceiling, and like fingertips aren't stuck Swaying like there's no ceiling, and like fingertips aren't stuck Swaying like there's no ceiling, I feel so Absent Absent Absent Absent I don't know what you want me to say You want an explanation but I can barely breathe Brain's evaporation and I'm just trying to hold on But I feel so Absent Absent Absent Absent Far away from everything Suddenly learned that dying was the cruelest thing I could ever do to somebody who would miss me But I can't stop feeling Absent Absent Absent Absent Ooooo ooooo ooooo ooooo Ooooo ooooo ooooo ooooo

about

Deep Sage, Gouge Away’s third studio album, started coming together in 2019 during sound checks and in small pockets of downtime between tours. In early 2020, they demoed with Brok Mende in an unassuming storage unit in Orlando. They pulled influence not only from the nostalgia of the bands they grew up listening to but also developed the sense of urgency, noise, and introspective lyrics they felt most represented them. Those demos helped shape the songs into the finished record that Deep Sage would become.

Then everything came to a halt in 2020 when a full year of plans were canceled in an instant. With the rug pulled out from under them, their backs against the wall, and no way to change the situation they were in, the members of Gouge Away had no choice but to go on a hiatus. They moved to different parts of the country and focused on their personal lives, accepting that those songs were never going to see the light of day.

But the songs lived as files waiting to be rediscovered and every once in a while, they’d get the urge to listen to them again. On New Year's Eve just before 2022, they decided to reconnect and finish writing the album with Portland, OR becoming their new writing location. While everyone was in town for a writing session, Militarie Gun had a show down the street at Mano Oculta and invited Gouge Away to play a couple of songs during their set as a surprise. It was the first show the band had played in three years and the live debut of “Maybe Blue”. Energized by the reaction, the band finished writing. They had an overabundance of material, slashing songs from the final tracklist left and right. They not only elaborated on the urgent and abrasive qualities they were known for but broadened their melodic traits too.

Deep Sage was recorded with Jack Shirley at Atomic Garden East in March 2023 completely analog and almost entirely live. The band recorded together in a live room while Christina was in an isolation booth. Her vocals projected from a monitor so the band could hear her. The goal of recording live was to sound like five friends playing in a room together, just like where they started in Florida. Unpolished and far from being over-produced, this is what the heart of Gouge Away has always been.
