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

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

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

Let's create a reverse sabotage and ruin our own lives 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

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

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

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

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
9.
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

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
