I have dubbed Liaison as "The Cursed Album". Its story is a twisted one. Since day one of recording this album, it was nothing but trouble. The M-BOX I was using (with my new Pro-Tools; clueless on how to work it), had no amp, so I could not hear anything I was singing. Both before and after the album was recorded, I had to reformat my PC. Some tracks were lost, along with another album I was working on. I then had to remix it through a BOSS BR-8, which created loss in the sound quality. A person, as to whom one of the songs is about, died before I even finished recording.

Once the album was FINALLY finished, I posted it up on as many sites as I could; fileden, megaupload, etc...all of which are now dead sites (you cannot download the album there anymore). When I loaded a few tracks to youtube, the sound quality was so distorted, it sounds more like static than a song. My myspace music site will no longer log me in, no matter how many times I try to get in touch with myspace to fix the issue. You can hear the whole album for free there, but no download. And, to top it all off, I cannot seem to find any copies of the in anywhere.

So, the music you are hearing is not even the final mix. It was off some tracks I posted up on reverbnation, as to let some friends hear what I was doing. This is the unpolished tunes...and only five of them, at that. The other two tracks, I had to rip off those youtube videos, so it is the LOW quality version. There are also three more tracks completely missing from this bandcamp mix, due to me not finding any copies around.

So, there you have it...if this album isn't cursed I don't know what is. Be sure to listen with a cross in your hand. Just in case. ;)

Track Name: Metaphysic Mistress
Take me piece by piece, by now it's all the same
This hunger that's deceiving me is causing all the pain
I'll never ask to dissect you as you've dissected me
To analyze my every move, to analyze me breathe

Is this social just a game to you or is it company?
Is my hand that is stretched out to you another thought to squeeze?
Is the wording I am ranting off a blessing or a curse?
Is the face that am reaching for a motion too absurd?

Oh, how I want to believe
Oh, how your wounds are discreet
Oh, how silence brings a sting
You've left your mark upon me

Taunt me piece by piece, my feeling's come undone
The pedals which this flower held are falling one by one
I'll always keep a prayer for you and cards up my sleeve
You're the first & last thing on my mind, as I rise and fall to sleep

Is this mingling a joke to you or is it what you dreamed?
Is my life that's given unto you another husk to bleed?
Is the voice that you hear on the phone an easy trick to play?
Is my heart which is held up to you no more than a display?

Oh, how I want to believe
Oh, how you're quick to bereave
Oh, how the motions deplete
You've left your mark upon me

Is the quietness which you portray an angry gift to me?
Is the solitude which you ensue a hint to make me leave?
Is the absence you're delivering suppose to be a clue?
Is the hope that I am grasping for, to go on without you?

Oh, how I want to believe
Oh, how you so make me grieve
Oh, how I tear up and weep
You've left your mark upon me

(I want you to believe)
Track Name: Your Green Eyes
Honestly! How you're taking me
Through these thorny vines of yesterday!
The memories! Dream!
Shake and scream! I want to believe
That meeting you was more than just a passing gleam.
Frequently, I'm left on the streets of rubble and rock,
Distancing on miles complete.
My energy is depleting me! I'll give you what I can,
Though it's not much, I see.

How to point it out? How to prove?
I need more than words. I need you.

The glare is on and the focus stays,
Which makes me ponder on yesterday
And I noticed all the love and the life,
As I'm staring straight into your green eyes
Oh radiance! Oh the brilliant light!
Discarding it all upon angel flight
And I care not at all what is on the reply,
As I'm peering right into your green eyes

This simple phrase, oh, which hooks you in,
It's dangerous and lecherous; a mortal sin!
I fumble through these visions of you.
But nothing's more depressing than such simple moves.

Story's come and gone! Story's through.
Start another time. Start anew.

My yearning is bottled up belief;
What seems better off cast on glassy seas?
But I'll anchor in under the moon rise,
As I'm swimming down into your green eyes
A noted hunch which gave us the fall,
This carousel was the start of it all
But I promise you; let my own truth die,
As I'm locking sites into your green eyes

Raise my sites above, clear blue skies.
Rather frame into your green eyes

[your green eyes]

Oh cleansing words change this doleful heart,
Who cares less if this world falls apart
For there's nothing much more left to disguise,
As I'm looking long into your green eyes
A life of crud which has turned to gold;
A cherry smile for a hand to hold?
And there's always something which gives surprise,
As I'm gazing deep into your green eyes

[your green eyes]
Track Name: Pure Shine
Behind the wall; The hard, mundane
Experience which I did claim
From shot to shot, from day to day;
I was in gray, I was the same
For living life, as scarecrows do
And giving up, as dyers do
Enticing words of "nevermore"
Until I saw you walk through the door

The rainbow scarf, a driving mood
That flowing dress and leather boots
Your tee-shirt with a smiley face
A bullet hole, to mark it’s place

And now the darkness closing on me fades away
You’re pure shine!
With a light that is reflecting from your eyes
And what I’m seeing is celestial
You’re pure shine!
For I’m standing in the presence of divine

Another time, another space;
To make a move with solemn grace
Your taken heart was taken then;
I should have known that it would end
For living life, as scarecrows do
And giving up, as dyers do
Was never in your humble ways
Nor would upon your skin it graze

A lovely smile, yet nevermore
A fragile touch, yet nevermore
A scented voice, yet nevermore
Upon my soul you all did pour

I found the beauty which makes my heart stop & melt away
You’re pure shine!
And the joy that I thought was lost is alive
And though the feelings must be hindered
You’re pure shine!
And you're radiance-impressing all the time
Track Name: The Long Run
Highway stretch, feeding on our yesterday
How I mused with nothing more than that silent games we played
Passing yellow; Onward, heading home
And you resting through the way chilled me to the bone

We're distracted, but together now
And neglected, but together now
Suffocated, but together now
Amputated, but together now
Moving onward, but together now
Sighting starboard, but together now
What I have feared, we're together now
Although you're not here, we're together now

Fading now, all my wanted memories
How I held on to the lies that I led to believe
Failing changes, failing luck & hope
And above all, failing you, for things I couldn't cope

Holding down my thoughts of sin
Holding to my will to live
Holding on all of what seems true
Holding out on all the moves
Watching sunsets fade away
On this ride with you today
Stroking your hair; why defend?
Knowing this all soon will end
Track Name: Sarcastic Tango & Cynical Waltz
How long will I take these misshapen words of failings?
Entangled by this web of ill-forgotten days and longing?
To times when we thought we had it all and nothing more,
But never crossed a pattern to search for something more than what we were.

When it was you with him we all had fun.
The sands inside the hourglass were falling one by one.
But as the times moved on, you both moved in separate ways.
And my life was torn in two from your friendship set ablaze.

A masterful wit and a lust which falls;
A sarcastic tango & cynical waltz.
No step-by-step or sleeping moves
Have altered that which impresses you.
The spiral downward in a want that calls;
Why did we make it worse for us all?
A silent moment, that you didn't know;
And never will that moment grow.

Night after night, I tossed and turned: A haunting glaze.
It’s hard to keep emotions locked away from those you need.
It’s even harder to stay friends with you, so logical and plain,
When the residence that we all claimed is the place in which all our beds are laid.
Now falling from me, whispers in the dark
And prayers from mumbled lips to someone only walls apart
And thoughts of solitude, foreboding, cause it’s solitude with you.
Why is capturing your heart the hardest thing one has to do?
Track Name: The Beast
Step away, my beauty, for the stench of me is foul.
My eyes are blood red stains of light. My fur is matted down.
This black oil that moves through my veins is just as thick as glue.
My fingers are protruding claws and moving towards you.

I'm so cold. I'm so cruel.
Forgive me, if I'm honest, but you have led me astray.
To take this veil of refuge and make sure it's torn away.
To comment you, on how I feel; I'm a beast.

You seem to move in silence, cause you seem to watch me move.
This twisted, shattered mess, who only wants to speak to you.
Your heart will take in nothing, for I'm nothing in your eyes.
Heaven forbid I'm allowed just five minutes of your time.

I'm so old. I'm so crude.
A moments notice to give my cryptic words of dread.
The monster that I am has let it all go to my head.
To come at you, with this ordeal; I'm a beast
To come at you...I'm a beast.
Track Name: Cup After Cup
Gut-drop and Gut-rot
Cup after cup
Breathing you in second hand
Pen motions draw
Feeling and reeling
Watching you reading
Observe you drinking
Cup after cup

Stay! Stay!

Hallowed yet unfulfilled
Cup after cup
Eating every word you say
My stare prolongs
Dreaming and scheming
Laugh through the evening
As we’re refilling
Cup after cup

I’m happy just being next to you
Don’t go away
I've never felt this calm and anxious
For you always
