SAGE4 (formerly SAGE) is a dark and dynamic band based out of Chicago that blends hard rock, heavy metal, gothic, progressive and alternative music with female vocals from singer Tracey Sage, who is described by Sea of Tranquility as how Maynard James Keenan (from TOOL/A Perfect Circle) "might sound had he been born with ovaries".

The band also features internationally renowned virtuoso guitarist Mike Walsh from the band Hess, bassist Vito Marchese from the band November's Doom (The End Records) and drummer extraordinaire Mike Mousel. SAGE4 captivates their audience on all levels with intense live performances, dark and aggressive melodies, edgy, thought-provoking lyrics, impeccable musicianship and killer style.

GRAVES

Out of place like the moon in the daytime sky
Wonder how, wonder why you were in my life
Seemed so right at the time, seemed so right at the time
But now I know, out of sight
Now I know, out of mind

As I lay you know to rest
I realize it’s for the best
These choices are all up to me
So in my mind you’ll rest in peace
I decide you’ll rest in peace

Out of time to repay for all of your sins
One chapter will end as the next one begins
Into the light you pass on, into the light you pass on
But now I know, from my world
Now I know, you are gone

As I lay you know to rest
I realize it’s for the best
These choices are all up to me
So in my mind you’ll rest in peace
I decide you’ll rest in peace

Ghosts in the graveyard have followed me
Haunt my thoughts subconsciously
Held me back so subtly
I never knew it wasn’t me, it wasn’t me

As I lay you know to rest
I realize it’s for the best
These choices are all up to me
So in my mind you’ll rest in peace
I decide you’ll rest in peace

SAGE Lyrics by Tracey

IN VAIN

She stirs in sleepy syllables
A thick toxic half-slumber
Her breath dissolves in drips
That dim the lines upon the monitor

All that she went through in vain, in vain, in vain, in vain

Below the threshold of fear for the unknown
When every prayer has lost
So sick with the notion of living
Prolonging life at any cost

She swells in a chemical storm
Fading in clouds of radiation
Reduced to an inhuman form
Beyond the realm of comprehension

All that she went through, in vain, in vain, in vain, in vain

Below the threshold of fear for the unknown
When every prayer has lost
So sick with the notion of living
Prolonging life at any cost

So many promises commanded down with certainty
So many wasted days imprisoned in sterility
So many images that haunt my dreams and shake my sleep
It was not meant to be

Below the threshold of fear for the unknown
When every prayer has lost
So sick with the notion of living
Prolonging death at any cost

All that she went through, in vain, in vain

BACKBONE

Imposed their limitations
Boundaries on what they set for you
Chose the situations
They wanted to be right for you
Locked in their perceptions
Of everything you thought was true
But it’s not you

Don’t know what you want
Don’t know what you’ve got
You can’t stand up (without a backbone)
You can’t stand up

Followed their directions
Decisions already made for you
Led by their suggestions
Shown the path you should pursue
Obeyed their regulations
Did everything you’re supposed to do
But it’s not you

Don’t know what you want
Don’t know what you’ve got
You can’t stand up (without a backbone)
You can’t stand up

Always done what you’ve been told
Bought the stories you’ve been sold
You can’t stand up without a backbone

Don’t know what you want
Don’t know what you’ve got
You can’t stand up (without a backbone)
You can’t stand up

STEAL MY THUNDER

STEAL MY THUNDER

I won’t stand in your shadow
I won’t hide in the corner
I won’t step aside, no
I won’t let you take over

Why do you try to top me?
Why do you try to stop me?
Why do you try to beat me?
Why do you try to defeat me?

Steal my thunder, drag me under
Where the limelight never shines
Steal my thunder, makes me wonder
Why you always want what’s mine

Why do you try to break me?
Why do you try to fake me?
Why do you try to cage me?
Why do you try to upstage me?

Steal my thunder, drag me under
Where the limelight never shines
Steal my thunder, makes me wonder
Why you always want what’s mine

Demand the center of attention
Dominate the entire conversation
Jealousy is a waste of emotion
Get over it, there is no competition

Steal my thunder, drag me under
Where the limelight never shines
Steal my thunder, makes me wonder
Why you always want what’s mine

Always want what’s mine
