Judy Humphries If previous albums represented the raging against, "Clarity" is the coming to terms- a beautiful, emotionally raw acoustic and voice revisiting of past experiences. Favorite track: Consume.

about

All of these songs were recorded to provide a different experience for the original piece written sometimes years ago. Some were meant to give the songs a different weight, others were personal reflections. Each song has its own story, and new parts of it can be brought out by translating it to something else.

Track Name: Consume
Remember the face, remember the name
Remember the place and the restrictions
Remember the past, remember how lame
Remember how fast in those conditions
Remember the pain, remember the waste
Remember the same and the different
Remember the tame and all the insane
Remember to stop for the imprint

Closed for some
Close to becoming numb
I consume

Remember the face, remember the fun
Remember the jokes, remember the cruelty
Remember our depth, remember how hard
Remember how dumb, remember the cruelty
In all of the ways I’m welcome to stay
An infinite depth causes disarray
In every day, emerging the same
I walk a mile for a lesson in strain
Several cans line up in a row
Another impact to waste on a foe
No matter the case, no matter the show
I think so

Closed for some
Close to becoming numb
I consume

I want a ten, I’m wanted then

Closed for some
Close to becoming numb
I consume

Don't come from the top, don’t let it stop. From ever blue to obscene
Don’t leave me alone, it’s never safe. A distant case of feeling
Track Name: Pose
A slim distraction sifts my way and sighs
Too weak to say it
Ineffectually leaning in
Too crass to feel it
It hits the ground from misery and lacking diet
Gone for now, but never mind that
I bit my tongue on the campy wordplay
You think you know so much

It seemed out of place
But it's just a pose
I put on a face
You ought to know

Days before, I had to leave it
A ticking time lapse
You couldn't tell me why you need it
And there's the trap
You came to me in separate pairs to mend, so I created it
And I decide when I fail
You told me I was crazy and I told you I appreciated it
You think you know so much

It seemed out of place
But it's just a pose
I put on a face
You ought to know

You saw a loophole
Track Name: Jaq
A mother fills an empty space
Prey to whom I can’t define
Another stays within a case
Disabled by infectious shine
A cloud from which this scent could fall
Aloud, a call cries clementine

I want you to continue
Continue your bloom

Stop light, stays to know
More than I intend to show
I want to
More than I’ll admit to
Less distractions in the void
Penetrate in the noise

I want you to continue
Continue your bloom

I will tear, and I am bare
Consequently I am scared
In the stare, unaware
Callous wears, strength impairs
I’m getting lost in this nightmare
Splendor rips inside a dare

I want you to continue
Continue your bloom
Track Name: Panorama
The line, the line
The fine line
I finally see the line
So closely related, so separated
The line means
What does this mean?
Everything and nothing
Everything is nothing

Panorama
Built inside of my head
Built in spite of me
Built in time

My head spins
I pinch a sight on the line
I pinch it again
I’m back where I started
This line, so dark
My head spins, I can’t see
The line

The line, the line
This fine line
I see it now
I see that all
Your false highs, your lows
Are predictable
Mine cross over
Where’s the line? The line

There is no line
There is no fine line
Track Name: The Meaning of Life
The Meaning Of Life
By The Offspring

On the way
Trying to get where I'd like to say
I'm always feeling steered away
By someone trying to tell me
What to say and do
I don't want it
I gotta go find my own way
I gotta go make my own mistakes
Sorry man for feeling
Feeling the way I do

On yeah, Oh yeah
Open wide and they'll shove in
Their meaning of life
Oh yeah, Oh yeah
But not for me I'll do it on my own
Oh yeah, Oh yeah
Open wide and swallow their meaning of life
I can't make it work your way
Thanks but no thanks

By the way
I know your path has been tried and so
It may seem like the way to go
Me, I'd rather be found
Trying something new
And the bottom line
In all of this seems to say
There's no right and wrong way
Sorry if I don't feel like
Living the way you do
Track Name: Wandering Mind
A wandering mind meets a wandering eye.
Wondering when I'll reach a low.
A passing wave with gleaming light.
Swept up in the undertow.

I can't contain my nervous shake.
And it pumps hard to a degree.
It's impossible, I'm awake?
That light was shined upon for me?

I don't care what you do. I have no reason to hide.
I've been waiting for you. Is too late the right time?

Would you still
Would you still if I will
Do you still
Do you still pop the pills

I fell down to live again.
Mostly cherished it's not mine.
Priceless prize to never win.
For me, once upon a time.

I don't care what you do. I have no reason to hide.
I've been waiting for you. Is too late the right time?

Would you still
Would you still if I will
Do you still
Do you still pop the pills
Would you steal
Would you still feel surreal
Do you still
Do you still feel the chill
Would you still
Would you still make a deal
Do you still
Track Name: I Can't Stay
The door, the barrier
The shape bending my time with you
I can’t stand to see your look as I go
I can’t stay, but I'll return for you
I can’t stand to see your look as I go
I can’t stay, but I'll return for you
I’ll never forget you
I’ll never forget you
I’ll never forget you, all others claim the same
I’ll never forget you, all others claim the same
I’ll never
I’ll never
I’ll never
I’ll never
