Track Name: Local News Legend - Bikes & Bonfires
F Bm Dm Bm
Capo 2


I dont think its right for
me to be with somebody

you told me to stop whining
i told you to quit crying now

you told me to quit lying
i said see somebody else

i dont think its right for
me to be spending money

on thing i think i need
on vodka, beer and speed
im a big catastrophe
no wonder my family hates me

F A Dm Bm
i should think off the reasons why im gonna need to stay clean
think of all the reasons why i can’t sit and day dream
get out the house and maybe just see a little sunshine
try and raise awareness and protest the pipeline
show me whats it like to have fun without drinking
bikes in the city bonfires and singing
seltzer water living and hanging with april
gotta change myself or ill end up getting killed (last line x4)

F Bm Dm Bm

I think it’s time for me
to learn to be somebody

i wanna learn to draw
or maybe get a job

sorry to the folks i robbed
maybe even move to utah

i think it’s time for me
to learn how to say sorry

for all these things i did
for all these things I hid

from my parents, god forbid
i wanna hear ya did good kid


F A Dm Bm
i should think off the reasons why im gonna need to stay clean
think of all the reasons why i can’t sit and day dream
get out the house and maybe just see a little sunshine
try and raise awareness and protest the pipeline
show me whats it like to have fun without drinking
bikes in the city bonfires and singing
seltzer water living and hanging with april
gotta change myself or ill end up getting killed


F A Dm Bm
i thought of all the reasons why im gonna need to stay clean
thought of all the reasons why i can’t sit and day dream
ill get out the house and see a little sunshine
I can raise awareness and protest the pipeline
i know whats it like to have fun without drinking
bikes in the city bonfires and singing
the seltzer water living and hanging with april
learned to love my life and i hope that you can too

i know whats it like to have fun without drinking
bikes in the city bonfires and singing (x4)
Track Name: Local News Legend - Neutral Spirit Hotel
D F#m G A

i think i say I’m quitting drinking every other week
but it’s so hard to stop when it’s the only thing that lets me sleep
and im so scared cause all my moneys gone and i can barely walk
but it’s okay, because at least it makes it easier to talk

Bm E A D

please dont think that I am just some drunk
because i am, but lets be honest that seems pretty punk
but punk is lame, and im so tired of it all
so let me die, and ill see you at my funeral

D F#m G A

6 AM I wake up and I have some awful shakes
i go to wash my face, but all i see is someone that I hate
and I’m so scared, cause all my love is gone and I can barely feel
but it’s okay, they hate me anyways, and none of it feels real
Bm E A D

please dont think that I am just some drunk
because i am, but lets be honest that seems pretty punk
but punk is lame, and im so tired of it all
so let me die, and ill see you at my funeral
Track Name: Local News Legend - Doth Make Cowards
A Bm D A

If there was a way to
compare you to polonius
i think that id be hamlet
and id stab you through the curtain

and if there was a way to say that I’m ophelia
id probably drown myself in flowers
just to fucking spite you

and when it finally got to
having mutual feelings it felt like something i didnt deserve
and when it finally got to being on bad terms again
i just had decided

maybe that was okay

Bm D A

and that’s okay
and that’s okay
maybe I’m not okay
and that’s okay
i’ll be okay
Track Name: Mary Wander - I Feel Like a Woman
Oh I feel like a woman today
Like no one wants to listen to the words I have to say
Oh I've been interrupted 6 times today
I'll say something and no one hears til a man repeats the same thing
Too skinny too fat you don't shave your legs what's up with that?
Too skinny too fat you don't shave your legs what's up with that?
Oh I feel like a woman today
Oh I feel like a woman today
Like no one wants to listen to the words I have to say
I feel like a woman today
Oh I'm so sick of getting yelled at on the street (what up)
Hey mami sexy babydoll
Keep walkin look at your feet
Too slutty too shy you don't wear a bra
What's up with that?
Too slutty too shy you don't wear a bra
What's up with that?
Everybody now
I feel like a woman today
Oh I feel like a woman today
Like no one wants to listen to the words I have to say
I feel like a woman today
Track Name: Mary Wander - Song 4 Mom
I can't figure you out
I want a stable figure to think about
But the truth is you are always changing
You've lived many lives but you keep on moving

I can see you in the audience at the show
I can see you making dinner and gathering us around the table
But I can only remember seeing you cry
Like one time or two times or three times in my life

And the data shows that your love for me is unemotional
But it's tangible, I can see all the things around me, around me

I can always count on you
To invite me over to play music in your living room
And I love all the ways you try to connect with me
And sometimes it doesn't work, but you keep on trying

Can't you see all the ways that you love me
I can see all the ways that you love me
And I can't believe that we've come this far
Track Name: Apes of the State - Sidewalks
This song isn’t about you bet you thought it bet you want it to be true
But truth is, I could write a thousand songs about things I loved more than you
You’re easy to fall for like cracks on the sidewalks but I’ve just been looking for
something to die for
You make me wanna break stuff and bang my head against the wall
And I mean that in the best way possible

This song isn’t about what you think it is what you think I’m missing
But I gotta get you out of my head, before I make a bad decision
Cause I can find you in any single city I go to everywhere
And I only fell in love with you because I happened to be here
You make me want to bang my head against the wall
And I mean that in the worst way possible
Track Name: Apes of the State - Hot Summer Night
I don’t have trouble drinking
I just have trouble drinking like normal adults do
If I still drank then I would drink like the summer that I graduated highschool
Vodka in my basement, 8 people passed out in my bed
The night when Kourtney fell out of the treehouse and we all thought she was dead

We’re all going to hell for all the jokes that haven’t aged well and if we ever lose ourselves try retracing our steps, where haven’t we looked yet ?

And we’ve all moved on now
And we all live our separate lives
But I became who I am by shedding my skin on those hot summer nights
I don’t miss the good old days
I don’t miss any certain time or place
I just miss the headspace of not having to care about anything at all

Cause we were 17 and we thought that we knew everything
And now I’m 27 I feel like I know nothing
I guess that’s part of growing
I guess that’s part of growing
I guess that’s part of growing

I don’t have trouble sleeping
I just have trouble sleeping when I’m supposed to
I sleep in late cause I stay up late watching videos of my friends playing music on youtube
Cause I miss them when I’m at home
And I miss being on the road
And when I close my eyes it’s 6am and we’re dancing in my bedroom singing

We’re all going to hell, our hopelessness just hasn’t aged well and
If we ever lose ourselves try retracing our steps, where haven’t we looked yet?

And I can’t wait to get to hell, it’s gonna be one big giant party
A summer night in Staten Island, naked and dancing, just don’t start without me
