Give us something to believe in We've been waiting Many loud distractions So frustrating Sorry, but I won't Be home for dinner This journey may take me The rest of Winter I know Change sometimes moves slow Hard walking through the snow When I find my way back home I'll know I'll know Give me something to believe in I've been musing Many forking paths It's so confusing I'm sorry But I won't be home For dinner I can't find my way back home I don't remember I know Change sometimes moves slow Hard walking through the snow When I find my way I'll know I'll know I know Change sometimes comes slow Like Springtime melting snow If I find the way I'll know I hope There's something to believe in Some true bearing If somebody found it They're not sharing Maybe we can find a bit of tinder To warm us through the rest Of this cruel Winter

No matter where He always finds me No use There is no sense in hiding Nothing I do stops it I always fall into the season Nothing I do Turns rhyme into reason Red and white smiling Killing me with kindness Doesn't make a lick of sense Greets me in the doorway Offering salvation Offer him a couple cents How do you do it? He's everywhere at once Why are you here? Where are you the rest of the year? No matter where He always finds me No use The useless shit I am buying There's just no point No dollar is safe from his fingers January Debt still lingers Red and white smiling Killing me with kindness Swore I'd never fall for it Greets me in the doorway Offering salvation All I've got is pocket lint How does he do it? He's everywhere at once Why are you here? Are you coming back next year? Hard to believe Hard to believe Hard to believe

I've been a good boy All year Been so good I've been a good boy All year Just ask my mama I'm good I've been good No, I've been great Never rude Good grades I don't beg I don't whine I do my chores all the time Hey, what's that? Look at this! Such a modest wish list Milk and cookies on a fucking plate Fuck a reindeer fuck a fucking sleigh (Play pretend on Christmas day) I'm tryin' hard to wait Mom, here's your gift Dad, here you go Uh huh, you're welcome Ho ho ho Gift me like you know you should I've been so good! I've been a good boy All year Been so good I've been a good boy All year Just ask my mama I'm good

about

Happy Holidays! December Music is my attempt to capture the ever increasing complexity of my feelings for this season. I love the idea of seasonal music but I hate the idea of capitalism and powerful white men who make all of our dreams come true. xoxo
