Track Name: Christmas Will Be Soon
We must not fear this as it grows near
Christmas will be soon
Luring like the moon

Decorate your untamed nature
Christmas will be soon

Now, let go of Solstice and save our souls
Christmas will be soon
Very very soon

Idols come and go,
Melting like the snow when sunlight comes
Play their drums
Play their drums

Cut down our twig shrine
Sit 'round the big pine beneath a star
This is who we are

One last toast to has-been ghosts
Ooh, Christmas will be soon

Let's stop burning Yule logs
In faith of fool's gods our kids won't know
Idols come and go

Ordinary folk floating like the smoke
We are adrift
Take this gift
Christmas!

Oh, now not one more word
I'm looking forward
So change your tune
Christmas will be soon

And the winds have changed now (The winds have changed)
And we are strange (And we are strange)
Now will you change your tune? (It will be soon)
Christmas will be soon

Decorate your untamed nature
Christmas will be soon
One last toast to has-been ghosts
Ooh, Christmas will be soon

Christmas will be soon
Christmas will be soon
Christmas, Christmas, Christmas
Track Name: Aurora Borealis
Beneath apocalyptic snowflakes from above
We're not in peril, we are in apocalove

So let's go walking, or Christmas shopping
No, let's do something a bit more shocking
Let's go to the windmill
Let's find some catharsis
Let's go to the graveyard in cover of darkness

And it's okay, I've done this tons of times
Well, maybe once a year since I was very young
It will be fine, okay?
I do this all the time
And nothing could go wrong
Unless that's what you'd like

Is this the first time that you've ever seen Aurora Borealis crush mankind?
The wind chimes chiming with the screams
A pretty winter night
Your hand in mine

The horizon is a fog from the breath of everyone
And I hope you're having fun
I just had to share with someone

This is the empty building that I call my home
Baby it's cold inside, don't leave me here alone

There's no good movies, but there's a fire
Well, scented candles that are on fire
So let's take the night off
Be joyful and joyously enjoy the moonrise
And let it destroy us

See, it's okay
As long as we believe we'll be okay
As if anything could go wrong on Christmas eve
Okay, you know I'm glad you're here
So I can show you this before I disappear

Is this the first time that you've ever seen Aurora Borealis crush mankind?
A flashlight underneath my chin
A pretty winter night
Your hand in mine.

Now we're swallowed by the fog from the breath of everyone
I can barely see you now, but your smile is a frown
Yeah i knew it had to stop because I always mess it up
And I get it if you run
I just had to share with someone
Track Name: SAD
Every winter I'm a wreck, yes
Miss my family, merry Xmas

Every day that I am snowed in
I'm a coward, I'm corroding

Seasonal Affective Disorder
Everything can stop on a quarter

(Cold plus hopeless: Cope less)
Got no prospects
It's the snow's fault
(Cold plus listless: Kissed less)
Got no girlfriend
Pass the snow salt

We have a saying back in my hometown
"When you're feeling down, sunshine fixes everything."
But here, winter is getting longer
Everything's frozen still
Beautiful things no longer give me the chills

Seasonal Affective Disorder
Maybe I should just move to Florida

(Cold plus relapse: collapse)
I am no elf
No Saint Nick, man
(Cold plus morose: comatose)
Trapped in myself
I'm a sick man

Seasonal Affective Disorder
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Track Name: CryptoSanta
Classified project, moving light
Privately funded silent night
North pole station satellite
Red and white laser beams are focusing
Converging on a tyrant king

New dimensions!
Full of presents!
For the children!
In the trillions!

With a little bit of brains
Maybe we can do away with the lack of candy canes
Make Christmas every day
Through scientific enterprise, maybe we can open eyes
We can revolutionize the way we move merchandise

(It keeps on giving, it keeps on giving, it keeps on giving, it keeps on giving)
No more naughty, no more nice
Just a present and a price
(As seen on TV, as seen on TV, as seen on TV)
It's a pillow, it's a pet
It's a miracle it hasn't happened yet

Oh god. Something went wrong.
I can't let you see me like this.
I walked through the path of the beam.
At first I thought I was okay, but overnight my hair turned white.
I've been gaining weight...
Involuntary spasms, like a bowl full of jelly...
Outbursts of laughter...
We must not tell the shareholders.
That would be bad.

Whoa, something to do with DNA
Something to do with gamma rays
White flowing beard won't go away, go away
Laser beams from outer space
Converging on my mutant face

New dimensions!
Now I'm presents!
Like Pandora!
Oh the horror!

Body horror, tendons snapping
Ribbons and wrapping, stocking stuffing
Skin is sloughing, bones are bowing
Something is growing
Something. Ohhhh!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
