about

Recorded quickly during the ‘blizzard’ of February 2010 for Facebook friends, this EP was available exclusively to fans at the Marble Tea Facebook page (facebook.com/marbletea) until the app I was using to present it there went from free to unaffordable.

about

The Marble Tea Point Pleasant

Drawing mandalas and watching Captain Kangaroo...that's pretty much what it's like in here. I enjoy writing songs about my cats and cartoon insects, but I'm also fond of feeling up the tentacles that lead to the oneness of existence. That's the Marble Tea experience.

Recommended for fans of Jonathan Richman, Robyn Hitchcock, Jazz Butcher, Magnetic Fields, etc.

Track Name: My Analyst Told Me
My analyst told me
I was right out of my mind
But I could come to her at any time
Day or night, and she would make it right
For me

My analyst told me
I was right out of my head
She said there are no rewards for the dead
It's just a change that seems so strange
To us

How could she
Quote to me
From "The Book on the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are"
When she knows that this
All started out with books books books books

My analyst told me
I was right of my gourd
And judging from my name
I should wear a sword, and not be floored
By the dragons in my hall

My analyst told me
I was right out of my head
She said forget the couch lie down on the bed
And get some rest, I know what's best
For you

My analyst told me
My analyst told me
Track Name: Not Your Real Name
When I said
What's your name
I didn't mean your real name
I meant the name your lover called you
When you were standing in the kitchen
Cooking rice and vegetables
With a cat rubbing your ankle
And you were trying hard
Not to laugh
At his mispronunciation
Of the French word 'denouement'
But now he does it all on purpose

And the trees
Are so much barer now
Than they were in the fall

Yes the trees
Are so much barer now
Than they were in the fall

And I wonder what this feeling's called
I wonder what this feeling's called
And I wonder what you're called
When there's no one around
Track Name: Come Back From the Future
When you come back from the future
Will your hair be gray
From finding out all the secrets
We don't know today?

When you come back from the future
Will you save the day
And hold us up to the mirror
To make sure we're awake?
Track Name: The Center of the Universe
The center of the Universe
Is a very crowded place.
