about

This is the last Larksburg album. All the people that were ever on a Larksburg album live too far away for us to keep things up. I don't want to put out any more records under the name with new people playing with me, it just wouldn't feel right. I've been wanting to release music under a different name for a long time now anyway. Whether people are listening or not, we don't want to force ourselves to make another album, especially since we're so proud of this final one.
Hazel will continue to make music as Twinkle Park and I will be releasing music under a new name hopefully sometime in 2019. I'll also continue to be a part of the band Gabriel. If anyone would like us to play a show as Larksburg, we'll see what we can do. Thanks for understanding and thanks for listening.
-Brett

Track Name: Orange Shoes
You like to wear your orange shoes
when you feel like being my change hanging loose
you're in my pocket when I walk around
with every step I take you make a sound

You like to wear your brown hat
when you feel like making me your baseball bat
swinging me at everyone
I admit I don't hate the attention

You like to wear your grey shirt
when you feel like wrestling me in the dirt
we haven't showered in a week
so we're starting to smell great

You like to wear your orange shoes
Track Name: I Think You're A Beam Of Light
I think you’re a beam of light
shining thru a prism of gold
you shine thru whatever, whatever you think is valuable
and if you are not what I thought that you might be
I’ll get over it I’ll get over it just you wait and see
but I don’t think I’m wrong I don’t think I’m wrong at all
you are what I think you are, you are for sure
You are a beam of light shining thru a prism of gold
you shine thru whatever, whatever you think is valuable

and if you don’t see, the value in anything at all
I’ll be the one to make you something, I’ll be that one for sure
I’ll make you something for you to shine thru x4
but if I don’t succeed I won’t get over it
I won’t get over it
I’m not a beam of light shining thru a prism of gold
If I could shine thru anything I’d shine thru your soul
Track Name: Bunch Of Stars
Woman watches motorbikes explode
near towers of light
Running barefoot convinced of it
sympathy for the sentiment
You have no control over what you do
even if what you do is good
A bunch of stars dare to drift
wherever they drift in their moments of bliss
Fruit baskets dropped into pools
to reach shores and never be eaten
You have no control over what you do
even if what you do is good
Track Name: My "Don't Be Scared"
Let's create a reverse sabotage
by throwing away the minipill
we didn't need it anyway

So dance and see something good
dance and see something good in yourself
So dance and see something good
you know I can't make you see something good

People like to make fun of the way your brain works
but the way your brain works isn't funny
Yeah people like to make fun of the way your brain works
but the way your brain works isn't funny

And the way you talk isn't funny
and the way you laugh isn't funny

You can cover your eyes during the scary parts
You can close your eyes during the scary parts
You can close you eyes during the scary parts
You can cover your eyes during the scary parts
because this is my "Don't Be Scared"
so don't be scared
Track Name: Hell Could Be Beautiful
Hell could be beautiful with you there
hell would be beautiful with you there
Hell is a beautiful place with you there
Hell could be beautiful with you there

You are my home and we live there

(Repeat previous lyrics)
Together in that home made of your flesh made of your bone
Track Name: They Might Just Kill You
If you were to die now
I'd be the only witness to one of the greatest deaths of all time
and probably no one would believe me

and I don't know what stupid kind of things you get in your head
but they might just kill you

Dreams are just dreams they're not supposed to mean anything
Dreams are just dreams but I dream of you all the time
Dreams are just dreams they're not supposed to mean anything
Dreams are just dreams but they might just kill me

Could I be the only witness to your greatest address
of love and compassion?
Words that slipped from your lips over my head
when you talk imagination you pop off and you go on
Track Name: Ochre Juno
When I get up there
I'll be calling the shots
telling angels to walk
telling those angels to run
telling angels to swim
telling those angels to go cold
Have you heard?
Some of those angels go cold
all on their own

Shoulders to shoulders
necks to necks
collarbones to collarbones

I'm sorry Ochre Juno
I just think you're so beautiful
and my ears prick up at the mentioning of your name
even though I don't know anything about you
I don't

So what's the worth of a killing machine?
I just want to find out the worth of this thing
So what's the worth of you, Ochre Juno?
I imagine it's a lot

So I built a killing machine
I just don't use it
So I built a killing machine
I just don't want to use it
Track Name: I Saw The Sun/Flirt/Everything Happens
I saw the sun from Apocalypse Now
I read the book from Heart of Darkness
I heard the song from the dance recital
and I saw you
Tip of the cuff and a bullet gone up
past your nose and you fell into the brush

I wanna flirt in front of your friends
and make puzzles out of pens
mistake bugs on your shins
I forgot the smell of incense
so I keep going back to dreamland

Everything happens so don't you worry me
with your beautiful brown eyes
so many people have brown eyes but your eyes
are skyscrapers scraping the sky tonight
Track Name: Shine, Shine, Shine
Untouched thing
untouched thing reaches out to me
soon to not be untouched
You told me you how you were afraid to wear your hair down
My heart broke and
I asked “Who taught you to express yourself in a way that makes you feel like less?"

But

I know what you are and you are nothing short of incredible

This little light of mine, mine, mine
I just wanna see it shine, shine, shine
Shine on me tonight

Little beam of light, light, light
You're the brightest light I've seen in my life
You're the brightest light I've seen in my life
You're the brightest light
You shine so bright

I'm not a beam of light
and that's alright
I'm something else
and that's alright
Maybe you're not a beam of light
but that's alright
maybe you're something else
and I think that's alright
