    Debut "L"P "Apples and Sunshine" from the Chicago Indie Rock ensemble known as bully in the hallway...

    "The truly refreshing aspect of Bully is their tendency to stray from the “yawn” music that dominates the indie-charts of today. (Not that there’s anything wrong with the likes of Grizzly Bear or Bon Iver; I just don’t want my entire iTunes library ending up in a sleep playlist.) This Chicago quintet is most definitely punk rock and embraces comparisons to Fugazi and other staples of the genre. Their first LP, Apples and Sunshine, aims to break ground as a fusion of punk to jazz to funk, and serves as a side dish to the outstanding live shows put on by the band for the past two years."

lyrics

The Shake-Up!


Cashing in on friends,
While building up resumes.
New bars have become trends.
Drinking; A national holiday.
We’re consumed with the end.
And numbers we all get paid.
When someday we’ll all transcend,
And retire from this game.

One day you’ll wake up,
Blinded by your own sight.
That day will be the shake up,
That day will be the night.

One day you’ll wake up,
Blinded by your own sight.
That day will be the shake up,
That day will be the night.

We grow through mistakes & responsibilities.
We learn from the paths we all take.
Well then how come no one ever told me.
That these paths could just be lakes.

I’m swimming in a sea of change.
And I’m sorry for this cliché.
That nothing stays the same,
No matter how hard you pray.

One day you’ll wake up,
Blinded by your own sight.
That day will be the shake up,
That day will be the night.

One day you’ll wake up,
Blinded by your own sight.
That day will be the shake up,
That day will be the night.

So it’s have fun, so it’s have fun…
Cause it’s one and done.
So it’s have fun, so it’s have fun…
Cause it’s one and done.
So it’s have fun, so it’s have fun…
Cause it’s one and done.
So it’s have fun, so it’s have fun…
Cause it’s one!!!

One day you’ll wake up,
Blinded by your own sight.
That day will be the shake up,
That day will be the night.

One day you’ll wake up,
Blinded by your own sight.
That day will be the shake up,
That day will be the night.
