Description
TheDanseLeviathan originally posted his tune "Nocturne for Piano and Cello" - www.macjams.com/song/70771 and I immediately felt a "tinker" in my bones .... he graciously allowed me to post my version without hearing it first (brave man) ... I hope he doesn't live to regret this .... the title of the song "Omnes Homines Mendaces Sunt" is a Latin phase bascially meaning "All Mankind Lies" or depending on how you look at it ... "All Men are Liars" .... Magnatone was kind enough to listen to my rough draft (and pointed out the clipping) ... I did the best I could to minimize this ... however, due to my lack of mixing skills may not have succeeded 100% .... it is what it is .... (tinker) ....

Lyrics
You might ask yourself
Is there really such a thing as angels
Does God really listen and send them to you
Just when you need them most

The reason I came to you
Was because I felt you crying
the reason I left you
Was because I heard you lying

You broke my heart
with your self-serving lies
You stole my soul
When I realized

that you didn’t care for me
I could see it in your eyes
I could see it in your eyes
You destroyed me with your lies

It came as no surprise

Thank you so much K ....
... for your continued support of my tinkerings ... and of course for vetting (thank GOD I actually decided to mess with it a little more first) as opposed to my first inclination to just POST POST POST ..... even if there are still some glitches I definitely prefer THIS version to my first draft ....

Thanks Rok .....
... I do enjoy a good haunting ...... I need to figure out how to get that slightly more echoey hollow sound in my vocal tracks other than reverb ... you know the one I speak of?

Truth
We break hearts when we lie
We break hearts when we tell the truth
We break
and the Cosmos cries for us
tears, falling like stars

and lies remain lies
and truth remains truth

Alannah this is really cool. It is sinister, lonely, haunting - you set the mood so well in this! I'm impressed and I definitely enjoyed!

Powerful stuff! Great backing track and you're at your vocal best here! Emotional performance. I love how you arranged the backing vocal track and your use of effects on that track.

Thanks A ....
... actually there are a few backing track(s) .... I don't seem able to apply certain FX to certain parts of a track with the software I use .... so I end up with multiple pieces of stuff here and there and mix each track a little differently to get all those FX ... and of course there is always my love affair with REVERB and ECHO ! haha

Hi Alannah....
Great tinkering. Enjoyed this a lot.

The title, if said by a man, is not to be believed, as all men are liars, so a man would be incapable of saying this with truth. Ergo if he said it with a hint of a smile on his lips then that's probably nearer to the truth, but still a lie or as Alanis said 'Isn't it ironic'?

Take care.

Paul

Haunting vox, I always like the spoken parts you sometimes do. Gives a real contrast to your songs. You have a beautiful voice, I am always impressed by the way you use it, in all the ways you do.

Thanks so much Tokai ....
... I have been a little out of the "tinkering" mode of late ... and now seem to be getting back into it some .... my voice needs a good "highway run" I think to get things back on track .....

Powerful and emotional, partly as a result of the haunting music and of course also because of your wonderful vocal! Great music from both of you!

Wow - this is so cool. Really atmospheric and I can almost hear it as a soundtrack to one of those Twilight films or something of that ilk. Excellent stuff Alannah (And Adam!)

I am always striving for the "perfect haunting" ... just don't feel like I have quite gotten as far as I would like with that quest .....
