dry kiss

I couldn’t wait, I was terrified I had dreams about it Running away from this simple life Where not much changes I’m stuck at home, staying up at night Where my dreams slowly die I mean really is it all that bad At least I’m sober Don’t want to talk so I dim the lights Pretend I’m not here Slipping away, step into the night Just going nowhere But then I find my way home To where my love waits for me I mean really is it all that bad Just growing older That voice ringing in my ears A sound that no one hears Messages from the other side Scream into a microphone I know I’m not alone Somebody feels the way I do So I make my way home And fill my head with new dreams I mean really is it all that bad Just growing older

Where did you go I need you Nobody knows What you do Running Away You were only 12 years old Accomplice to a crime Spread the ashes all around No body ever found Nobody knows Mother pulled another one of her stunts Sister, you held all of us together She and her new boyfriend tried to dump me in the woods I’ve never been so afraid I cried into her arms They let me go Where did you go I need you Nobody knows What you do Running Away Nobody knows Intro thin air with all your secrets You had something that she wanted So I guess you had to go Where did you go I need you Nobody knows What you do Running Away Nobody knows

Laughter 02:07
I know what you’re doing I care, how ya doing These days are filled with laughter Of a kind I’ve never known The more I hear you speaking The less I feel I know Or care, what you’re doing I see what you’re doing These days are filled with laughter Of a kind I’ve never known The more I hear you speaking The less I feel I know What I’m doing

Bubble Burst 03:27
It’s an honest dream It never works In a low, I can’t get out of it Should I wait this out Or do my worst I’m singing, no one's watching No ones watching Over you, over you I’m over you We just got way too close The bubble burst Was it real, did I imagine it Gave it all I had And things got worse Keep singing, no one's watching No ones watching Over you, over you I’m over you Is this an inside joke I’m an outsider Fill me in or let me out of here ‘Cause this rehearsal feels Just like a show I’m singing, no one's watching No ones watching Over you, over you I’m over you

2020 Vision 03:26
Found a note under our door Said you went to search for more Now I’m sleeping on the floor Will you come back Broken down and super bored Now my dreams feel more like chores And I know we can’t go back We can’t go back, we can’t go back Have I seen your face before It’s this love or is this war Seeing signs I can’t ignore Will you come back Am I guilty of a crime Should I just get with the times Don’t you know we can’t go back I won’t do that, I won’t go Finding nickels losing dimes Twenty-twenty going blind Such a lonely-lonely time I won’t look back
6.
Hear the call and change course Voices in the night I could use a distraction Lean over the side I’m in love again Give in to the music Drifting out of sight Fill my lungs up with fluid Swim towards the light I’m in love again
7.
Cataracts 03:30
Alarm bells, tunnel vision No more celebrating with your Friends or your family Back to bed please, go back to bed, please Woman, get the razor Comb with love and righteous anger Alls well…if it ends well Oh I can’t look now I can’t look now Create a small incision Intraocular lens, no more Cloudy halo vision Back to bed please, go back to bed, please Woman, get the razor Come with love or righteous anger Alls well…if it ends well Oh I can’t look now I can’t look now Oh I can’t look now I can’t look now
8.
Bad Timing 03:36
I march with such bad timing And I speak out of turn But I will Keep on trying For now My light isn’t shining Your voice, still not clear But I will Keep on trying For now If I hide, you won’t find me Call out, I won’t hear But I will Keep on trying For now
9.
Let me work it out alone Sorry but I’m not myself right now It feels like I don’t exist outside these walls at all I know Last one in is the first one out When the alarm gets pulled The first one out will be the Last one is the first one out When the alarm gets pulled The first one out will be the Last one in is the first one out When the alarm gets pulled The first one out will be the Last one is the first one out When the alarm gets pulled The first one out will be the last one in It’s not like I don’t exist outside these walls at all I know
10.
Sinner 03:47
Don't kid yourself There is no way To have peace We need the fight We always have, always will Give in to struggle Savour the difficult moments Begin to show up Instead of just adding more noise I’m not gonna take it anymore I’ve had enough of your shit I’m not gonna take it anymore I’ve had enough You think you know You really don’t, it’s okay No this isn’t that This a wholly different thing Did you just blame me Am I just part of your problem Then disregard me Some sinner no more than his sin I’m not gonna take it anymore I’ve had enough of your shit I’m not gonna take it anymore I’ve had enough If we’re not gonna talk Then our hands are all tied And there’s nothing to do So let’s burn it all down
11.
Don’t hate me, I know we disagree These words are just thoughts and they’re not me
 No choice in the matter, can’t you see Inherited, borrowed, incomplete Look back I’m guilty because I live and breathe Your good intentions could be the death of me Slow down you’re repeating history Inerrant, confused, and incomplete Look back 
Where did we go wrong
12.
Why do I feel trapped when I have so much around me Things that I could reach for either to distract or take my pain away I guess it’s not enough I really don’t feel that grand And I am wanting to get back to that feeling you know I crave So I let it all fall out And I believe that I am on my way I decided long ago, that love is here so it is here I remain Oh what more can I do Be present here now until the sun is low I can’t remain down here Cause there’s a song just over there Never going back

about

“Andrew Judah’s 6th full-length album, ‘dry kiss’, was written and recorded during the darkest days of 2020. Blending autobiographical material with absurdist musings on the present tense, ‘dry kiss’ ventures into both new sonic and lyrical territory. With Judah’s familiar electric guitar taking a backseat, ‘dry kiss’ gives way to a palette of upright piano, hollow body bass, down-tuned nylon guitars, and tea towel drums. True to 2020, all the instruments—save for the violin—were performed by Judah himself.”
