about

As a kid, a pair of light-up sneakers could make you feel like you're strapped into a cold, metal jetpack, just a button press away from launching you into the clouds. Similarly, this album is not a major release--it was made in a home studio by one guy who daydreams about being a rockstar a lot. For all intents and purposes, this album is Brandon Lorrekovich's new pair of light-up kicks.

In his first studio album, "Jetpacks & Light-Up Sneakers," you'll explore Life, Love, Mental Health, and Mortality through the eyes of a charismatic man-child.

about

Brandon Lorrekovich Seattle, Washington

If you had to sum Brandon Lorrekovich up in one word, it would have to be: All. All of the words would be needed to describe him, because his character is frightfully complex; his mind, a labyrinth of great wisdom and ‘90s film and television references. Brandon is highly regarded for his contributions to publications such as JET and Modern Falcon. He also attends regular glass-staining seminars. ... more

Track Name: Just Around The Coroner
It ain’t over ‘till it’s over
‘till the blood rush to your head
Till the miles between relapse and reason
Have confined you to your bed
Night ain’t over ‘till the mornin’ after all
‘till the moon unravels over your shoulder
Our day is just around the coroner

He don’t know what did her in
But not for bein’ poorly read
‘twas the sounds of silence and throes of violence
That kept him in his head
The fight ain’t over ‘till the war is after all, oh
‘till the white ashes settle over the smolder
Our day is just around the coroner

It’s not what he said, it’s just how he seemed
Or maybe it was something in your dreams
That our day is just around the coroner

Our day is just around the coroner
Our day is just around the coroner

Well, you are nowhere to be seen
But you could be so much more to me
Yet you call me the absentee

It’s not what he said, it’s just how he seemed
Or maybe it was something in your dreams
That our day is just around the coroner

It ain’t over ‘till it’s over
‘till the blood rush to your head
Till the miles between relapse and reason
Have confined you to your bed
Night ain’t over ‘till the mornin’ after all
‘till the moon unravels over your shoulder
Our day is just around the coroner
Track Name: The Chimney Sweep
Surprise, surprise, I'm late today,
When I arrive, I know what he'll say
I'd be here sooner if they let me sit up front
The smoke I blow could power the train

It seems in fear the words are there
When all is good, it's too good to care
But the people know I've never walked the mile
But if you check my shoes, we've got the same pair

I left my heart and soul at the door, but I want more
The walls are thin, but the ceiling's tall, and I'm scared to fall, I'm scared to fall
Cause I'm the only thing in my way

I'm growing old, I'm growing pale
The thoughts in my head are growing stale
Staring out the window won't get me in the sun
But if I go am I doomed to fail?

I left my heart and soul at the door, but I want more
The walls are thin, but the ceiling's tall, and I'm scared to fall, I'm scared to fall
Cause I'm the only thing in my way

it's been a while since I could breathe without the sensation
of soot filling my lungs, or seeing calloused thumbs
I think it's time I packed my things and took a walk outside
to find something to say, or just enjoy the day
there's nothing in my way
Cause I won't hide anymore

I left my heart and soul at the door, but I want more
The odds are thin, but I want it all, and I'm feeling tall, I'm feeling tall
Now there's nothing in my way
Track Name: Give Me a Rest
You didn't call, but I wouldn't write
I guess I didn’t count on you to play nice
I used to stand tall before you made me your nest
I hid from that part of me and swallowed the rest

Your fingerprints left stains all over my hairline
Your presence is enough to twist up my spine
Damage was done, with no one to blame
Because I never considered the sake of my name

So, I resign to the words I recite
To the single breath I’ll hold through the night
In hopes they subtract from the sum of my fears
and you won’t be here
in time, so I can give me a rest

Absence is bliss, leave the whole world outside
You fight my indifference from the curves of my mind
I try not to bite when I need a hand
Our fickle life knows none but collapsible plans

You test my reflex, though you know I’ll react
It’s all part of my magnificent imbalancing act
I’ve been waiting all night for the stars to align
I’m losing to the street lights by my own design

So, I resign to the words I recite
To the single breath I’ll hold through the night
In hopes they subtract from the sum of my fears
and you won’t be here
in time, so I can give me a rest
Track Name: Life is So (feat. Kellie Rose)
I see a little frost, it’s getting colder
I feel a little cross, I’m getting older
I’m just a little lost, or so I told her
But I… I just go

Around with my head in the clouds, can I get a witness?
I can be strong for two, I eat my spinach
Even though I’m all mixed up inside I think I’m finding solace in you

You aren’t afraid to become an echo (like me, like me, like me) I wanna go wherever you go
A hopeful heart is a heart that may roam My hopeful heart is glad to call yours home

Life is so simple in a daydream (let me show you what it looks like to me)
Even in a dirty mind like mine, what’s mine is ours
And we can still have our truth
Shelter me, I’ll shelter you
Heaven knows it’s true
Live for me, I’ll live for you

It’s getting kind of late, gotta be up early
Should be in bed by eight, but it’s ten-thirty
Tomorrow we’ll be tired and a little bit irate
But it’s all worth it

(Kellie)
You say it's worth it, that your building us a home
But I want it right now
I'm feeling so alone, you sleep so tight
and trust in your daydream for what it is and what it could be
Oh, I wanna believe

(Brandon)
I just know

I won’t be scared when the winds of change blow
I ‘m gonna go wherever you go
A hopeful heart is a heart that may roam
My hopeful heart is glad to call yours home
Life is so simple in a daydream (let me show you what it looks like to me)
Even in a dirty mind like mine, what’s mine is ours
And we can still have our truth
Shelter me, I’ll shelter you
Heaven knows it’s true
Live for me, I’ll live for you
Track Name: Slip Away (feat. Andy Glover)
You were young and confused
A l’il battered, a l’il bruised
You needed someone to play along with your game

Took one look in my eyes
And said, “Are you one of my kind?”
But I knew we weren’t one in the same

Now try as I might
from behind a blue light
I can’t help but find your world in my hands

But at the end of the world
where it twists and it curls
I won’t be there so please understand

I’m sorry I couldn’t let you slip away
before I became just another mistake
I’m sorry you couldn’t see it my way, too
But someday you’ll find someone like you

(Andy)
[I'm sorry I couldn't let you slip away
Let you slip away]

At the end of the day
when I commiserate over my mistakes
I know I took too long, I shouldn’t have stayed

I’m sorry I couldn’t let you slip away
before I became just another mistake
I’m sorry you couldn’t see it my way, too
But someday you’ll find someone like you

I’m sorry I couldn’t let you slip away
Let you slip away
