Track Name: Christmas Bells Won't Stop Ringing
Christmas Bells won't stop ringing
the switch is stuck
in the on position
electricians on vacation
the town prepares for evacuation
Track Name: Christmas Time Machine
I miss those times
When I was young
And Christmas
Was all about toys and fun

Now that I’m older
Winter feels colder
And my holidays fill with rage

Driving in the snow on my
last vacations days
Because my in-laws moved
Twenty states away

Two separate trips
And two separate gifts
All because
My parents had to split

Christmas time machine
Get me out of two thousand thirteen
Take me to any year B.C.
I want to go when Christmas ain’t a thing



I buy thoughtful gifts
For people on my list
And all I get is a shirt that doesn’t fit

Black Friday massacre
Royal rumble at the mall
A jerk maced some assholes
For 10 percent off

Filling up the dump with last year’s junk
And all of the dead Christmas trees

It’s harder to bear
Each and every year
holiday cheer
means get me one more beer

Christmas time machine
Get me out of two thousand thirteen
Take me back to nineteen eighty three
When I was just a stupid baby
Track Name: Christmas in a Bottomless Pit
Celebrating Christmas in a bottomless pit
We waited oh so long
For a tree to be thrown in it
It was sad to lose our eggnog bowl
We had to say goodbye
When it hit the side and broke

Holidays they race right by
But we try and make the most of our Yule time
Every year we ask for the same things
We want good tidings, good cheer, and a safe landing

We are always falling falling
As we are fa-la-la-ing
We are always falling falling
As we are fa-la-la-ing
We are always falling falling
As we are fa-la-la-ing
Christmas in a Bottomless Pit

Celebrating Christmas in a bottomless pit
The only presents that we get
Are whatever gets thrown down it
Singing cheerful songs and ringing jingle bells
As our whole family plummets on down to hell

Chestnuts bouncing all around
It’s hard to deck the halls when you can’t stop the walls
Every year we ask for the same things
We want good tidings, good cheer, and a soft landing
Track Name: Furry Christmas
A little blue house all alone
Lost out in a lake of snow
Warm light glowing in the window
Trails of paw prints leading to the door

Look inside and you will see
Cats and dogs are caroling
They all drink from the Christmas tree
They purr and bark in harmony

Let in the lost ones and the strays
Welcome in all forgotten pets
No one’s lonely or afraid
Everyone gets a second chance


Come in from the frosty air
All your friends are inside here
There’s tender moments to be shared
This kind of kindness lasts all year
