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: Fantastic Day
i didn't say i was looking
for a way to be good
i didn't say i was looking
for a way to be bad
what i said was i needed
a place to be felt
whether with a soft feather
or a leather belt

it's a truly fantastic day today
just a perfect fantastic day today

i don't mind being taken
around the block
in your car with the window
down you're so hot
under trees through the street
with the radio on
singing loud and offkey
to that tom jones song

it's a truly fantastic day today
just a perfect fantastic day today

i've got news for the teenage kids
on the corner
i don't need sega-vision
or time warner
just give me all the air
and that cool breeze
we'll buzz around like
a couple of honey bees

it's a truly fantastic day today
just a perfect fantastic day today
Track Name: Mercury
I was standing outside of the Mercury Lounge
Having a smoke with my good friend Mau
Looking at all the people go wandering by
Past the cars and the buildings and under the sky

Somebody better do something
Somebody better do something

If it isn't you then it has to be me
Designate what the picture is we see

There's a hat and a dress and a coat or two
Patent leather becomes an angled shoe
There are scars on the body and psyche too
As a movie walks by just out of view

Somebody better get it down
Somebody better get it down

It's enough to stand by and watch it go
Or we could make a leap and join the show

[Repeat First Verse]
Track Name: How Does It Feel?
how does it feel
to be the latest conquest
of a cunning conquistador?
a nick on a shield
of course you think you're something more
but you're not, you're not
and now how does it feel?

he treats you nice, he makes you laugh
oh very well, very well
but what does he tell his friends
when he's slipped from your bedroom, baby

how does it feel
to be the latest dinner
of a starving henry viii
your sex is a meal
a course, you think it's something more
but it's not, it's not
and now how does it feel?

he gets you seen, you have such fun
oh very well, very well
but what does he tell his friends
when he's slipped from your bedroom, baby

you're natalie wood
and you died tonight
you're natalie wood
and you died tonight
Track Name: There's A Girl I Know
there's a girl i know
she lives right down the street
and every night i hear her
talking in her sleep
bit it's not ever me she's dreaming of

all the time i see her
walking every day
but she just walks on by me
never looks my way
so i'll just have to find a way to say

can you see me?
am i really here?
Track Name: Say Goodbye
buckle up smooth down your hair
we're making a move
no more staring out the window
at the tree neighborhood

you guessed there's a big big world
but you don't even know
you can't imagine ocean or sand
and you don't even know snow

well that's about to change
your little room world disappears
there's a whole new state of things
but it's no new state to fear

and i'll understand
if i find you in the covers
i'll understand
if you're under the bed
i'll understand
if you're hiding in the closet
it's dark and the clothes
smell like inside your head

say good-bye
to danish wedding cookie breakfasts
say good-bye
to long wooden floor
say good-bye
to red bordello hallway
say good-bye say good-bye

say good-bye
to the couch you used to rip apart
say good-bye
to the pantry where you slept
say good-bye
to ceilings high above your head
say good-bye say good-bye

and i'll understand
if i find you in the covers
i'll understand
if you're under the bed
i'll understand
if you're hiding in the closet
it's dark and the clothes
smell like inside your head
