about

Marcel Wave Glasgow, UK

Marcel Wave documents an exploration of life via the medium of synthesizers, bassoon and song.

All songs are written, performed and recorded by MM Lyle, who strayed off the beaten track in 2013 after releasing the Poseurs LP as the synthier half of A Terrible Splendour, eventually becoming entirely feral.

Track Name: Misery Tourism
Some of us can twist it
Some of us are stuck
Some of us can play with it
And some of us are just all out of luck
All out of luck

When you get tired of silly games
Then you can always go back to your home
You go back there alone
When you've had your nice holiday
Then you can always go away

Misery Tourism (x2)

The only thing they got now is the only thing you want
You think you know about me but I tell you that you don't
Painted faces, sorry clowns
I'm never gonna let you put me down
So get down

So sad to see your little friend has gone
But no-one wants to be just anyone

Misery Tourism
Their pain is your joy
Misery Tourism
Their bodies your toys
Misery Tourism
Their pain is your fun
Misery Tourism
Your place in the sun
(x2)

Misery...
Track Name: Lady in Pieces
Johnny, Johnny, where is your friend now?
Honey, honey, where did you go?
Disappearing like a mirage
Fade to nothing like the snow
Why don't you shut your mouth
Cos tears fall on barren ground
Why don't you give it up
Cos in an empty hallway
Love is nowhere to be found

And it all falls away
And it all falls apart
Cos the lady in pieces
Broken down into parts
Now she throws back her ring
And she throws back her heart
Cos the lady in pieces
Is more than just some of her parts
She's a state of the art

You see a pretty girl
You think she'd look so nice
If she just had no eyes
If she just had no voice
For all your magazines
Cut up into fragments
Now can you ever put her back together

She's not human
She's just no-one
Component parts
Of your work of art
How delightful
Like, how edgy...

Chorus
Track Name: Echtes Leder
Echtes Leder
Ties that bind
Echtes Leder
Cut so fine
Echtes Leder
Round your neck
Echtes Leder
Discotheque

Echtes Leder (x2)

See that boy
See those eyes
See that boy
He'll tell you lies
Echtes Leder
Always true
Echtes Leder
Really loves you

Echtes Leder (x4)

Put it on (x3)

Who would you be
Without those clothes?
Try to hide it
It still shows
Put it on
Wear it tonight
Put it on
Tie it tight

Real leather

To feel real
We wear their skins
We feel shame
They bear our sins
Echtes Leder
Fashion star
Ecthes Leder
Abattoir

Echtes Leder (x4)
Tie it tight

Echtes Leder (put it on) (x3)
Echtes Leder (tie it tight)

Put it on
Tie it tight
Track Name: (At Night) All Cats Are Grey
The sun's rays highlight all the differences
The bright light shows up all the dirt
You have to close your eyes and fall asleep
The only exit from this hurt

You dream of these nocturnal animals
Sashay and sway from side to side
Step out the door into another world
The velvet sky is dark and wide

Have a good time all the time
No matter what they say
When the daylight says goodbye
At night you know all cats are grey

Rrraaoowrr
Brrrr
Grrroouurgh

And when the darkness comes to hide your face
And sweeps your consciousness away
And when they're really all the same to you
You know at night all cats are grey

And maybe darling, there's no Mister Right
Just Mister All right for today
And when you step out from the furniture
He knows there's nothing more to say

Have a good time all the time
You know that's what they say
When the daylight says goodbye
At night you know all cats are grey

Who do I trust? Me!
It's a catfight, can't you see?
And with that boy in vogue
I move forward with my eyes closed
Who are you anyway?
Sometimes a lapcat
Sometimes I'm a stray
Nine lives but one are secret
You can have it but you can't keep it
Your love, you can keep it

Have a good time all the time
No matter what they say
When the daylight says goodbye
At night you know all cats are grey

When the nighttime comes again to carry you away
When you have to kiss goodbye
At night you know all cats are grey

Rrrrr
Miaow!
Rraaowrrgh
