Marlon J.D. (from the 9th album - Journal For Plague Lovers)

video

He stood like a statue
As he was beaten across the face
With a horsewhip
Where wounds already exist
A well-oiled rifle
Never lonely Marlon J.D.
If you wanna come down, come down
Give him some dignity

So say, so say Marlon J.D.
So say, so say Marlon J.D.

Learn to live without clutter
To live without luxury
Sometimes I envy them
Goodnight yourself, Marlon J.D.
He did not defend himself
He didn't even raise his hand
I will not beg because
This is how I am

So say, so say Marlon J.D.
So say, so say Marlon J.D.
So say, so say Marlon J.D.

"Bare floors, plain white walls,
No window curtains, nothing but essentials.
With no luxuries, no ornamentation,
Utter simplicity.
But it's also clean,
It's clean as a rifle."
...


PS. Here's a very short fragment of the film "Reflections in a Golden Eye" (starring Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando) which was the inspiration to the above song:
