about

Proceeds from the sales of this album will be donated towards Planned Parenthood.

"GIANTLIFE refers to the life that those create for you; the life that those around you imagine you live. The life that isn’t always congruent with the one that you create yourself."

After over a year of releasing music, Brett Hanley of Larksburg completed his first full-length, GIANTLIFE. The album delves into themes of uncertainty and tumultuous feelings.

Track Name: I'm The Man
You have the right to tell me what I want to hear
You have the right to give me what I want
And though bad days go slow
You have the right to tell me no

I am the man who turns off the light for you
I am the man you holds the phone up to your face
When you can't
I am the man who wanders bumping into silent scenery
I am the man who cleans messes that aren't there
Track Name: I'm A Ship
I'm a ship marooned
I'm a ship removed from my natural habitat
My wet waters replace with dry mats
Can't hoist up my sails
For they don't sail no more

I know you get sea sick
When I raise my voice at you
It's just you forget how to express yourself
When you're removed

My hull capsized revealing my bare stomach
With all the hairs removed so my hull could stomach
You must take this in don't take it don't grant it

Oh yeah I'm going to go real far
Track Name: Darker
Cardboard cut out cut me out
Place me any of your rooms
I'll be the life of your party please validate me
Blinds flicker red and green
Remember what that book did read
No it's too distant that book lost its sheen
(Do you remember me?)
No I put effort into that one thing; forgetting
It's that, that just out of my reach
I stretch but my feet don't won't lift me up enough
I'll keep running my mouth but that won't make me
Reach for that validating prize upon the shelf
Hold up my cards for me
I'll prove I can surpass that fold
Then I'll prove I actually won
Look at me I got my gun
Track Name: All My Words
All the leaves upon my face
I turn to see my saving grace
All dressed in black she opens up
To spout
All the neighbors gather round
To see me laying on the ground
I open up and I try to speak
But all my words they are weak
I guess I should be going, though it feels
Like I've been gone for awhile
Track Name: Cold Waters
Thank you for holding me
And helping me swim through the cold
I've grown so young and I
Still don't know a thing at all

For long I was small and frail
I'd pull things close into my chest
Not aware that I'd become
Someone too scared to move at all

I've told too much but not enough
To make you show me teeth straight and true
Just hold my hand and I'll feel moved
Yeah I'll feel moved
To swim in the cold
Track Name: You Breathe
You're soft you're real
You breathe you heal, me
My blurred eyes bubbling
My mouth sour draining
Myself into pink rays out of your
Window
Nothing bites at my brain
I'm full of nothing: mumbling
Break this one into quarters
break me into your orders
Track Name: I'm A Spectacle
Push back hold my back
Until four walls collapse
Standing in the crosshairs no shame
No shame this time
Never understood that one
Pressed me up against the wall
Might be the hardest one I saw
Hardly looking for a change of pace
Really looking to develop new taste

Don't be there when I'm back

There's no country for me
Observe my giantlife
I'm a spectacle meant to be looked upon
Track Name: Hold Me Down
Sometimes when I'm alone
I think about when I'll leave home
I'll probably stay in the state
Never going to far

Hold me down
Don't let me too far off the ground
Don't let me go to high

Sometimes when I'm alone
I think about when I'll be old
Grandpa were you ever young?
Like me?

Hold me down
Don't let me too far off the ground
Don't let me go to high
All right
Track Name: God Sings Another Tune Now
God sings another tune now
We don't know the words
We won't ever know the words
