Track Name: Xmas
Intro Riff:
(C D) Em (4x)

Verse 1:

Em C G
It was mid to late December and I hoped it wouldn't last
Am Em (C D )
I was feeling pretty haunted by the ghosts of Christmas past;
Em C G
I kept thinking bout your kisses and the presents that you brought
Am Em
And how this year I am all alone with what I haven't got

Intro Riff (2x)

Verse 2:

It was mid to late December, and I hoped for the new year;
You might say that I had get fed up with all this Christmas cheer
I kept thinking bout the way I'd been and reasons you would leave
And I knew that it was why I was alone on Christmas eve

CHORUS:
G B7
And the one thing I would ask for, I'd want if I got my way
Em C
Is just to have you back here by my side on Christmas day
Yea the one thing that I’d ask for, I'd want if I got my way
Is just that I don't wanna be alone on Christmas day

Intro Riff (4x)

Verse 3:

It was mid to late December and I hoped that it would end
I just couldn't stand the holidays without my special friend
They came back “return to sender”, all the Christmas cards I sent
Now I'm sitting here just wondering bout where you might have went
Track Name: Best Intentions
And you can drink my blood on the rocks
if you just want a taste, you can lap it off my face
but you can drink my blood if you want
but I hope that you choke and your eyes fill up with smoke
right near where my body broke
but acting on your best intentions
don't you think its condescending, baby? Lately?
And you can drink my blood on the rocks
if you just want to try, you can lap it off my eyes
but you can drink my blood if you want
washed up by the waves with no hope of being saved
in my shallow water grave
but acting on your best intentions
don't you think its condescending, baby? Lately?
but acting on your best intentions
don't you think its condescending, baby? Lately?
Track Name: Sweet Athena (Live at Beast Fuck Studios)
Sweet Athena, they’ll have to crack my head open to get you out
yea, once you meet her, they’ll have to crack your head open to get her out

And you came to me like a mystery
and all you left me was your name
and all you wanted was your misery
and now I only want the same for

CHORUS

And way back when I first set eyes on you
I fell down and broke my teeth
but you bent down and helped me pick them up
from off the concrete floor beneath oh

CHORUS
Track Name: The Fall (Live at Beast Fuck Studios)
The Fall

The leaves are burning on the trees
But soon they will be brown
And carried off into the breeze
And scattered on the ground

And I’m filled
with an emptiness
And I just
cannot say if it is all
Inside my head
or if its just
If its just the fall

The summer wind was once a friend
But now its grown so cold
Is this how my life’s supposed to end
Or just how I get old?

And I’m filled
with an emptiness
And I just
cannot say if it is all
Inside my head
or if its just
If its just the fall

from grace
right on
my face
and/or off the world’s
its probably just the
fall from grace
right on
my face
or off the world’s

its probably just the fall

Track Name: Complicit (Live at Beast Fuck Studios)
Complicit
You say there’s nothing we can do and what will be will be
But that is so far from the truth, you just choose not to see
I know you’d like to blame it all on our society
And I know that I’m complicit, you’re just a little more complicit than me

You notice other nations can avoid the murder toll
Enacting legislation marking thoughtful gun control
So when you say the problem can’t be solved by policy
Well I know that I’m complicit, you’re just a little more complicit than me

And the 2nd Amendment that you’re so quick to recite
Allows gun regulation’s within federal oversight
So when you try and tell me it will make us all less free
Well I know that I’m complicit, you’re just a little more complicit than me

So don’t tell me you’re sorry about the routine tragedy
Without taking a second to look at your priorities
And if there’s nothing we can do and what will be will be
Well I know that I’m complicit, you’re just a little more complicit than me
you’re just a little more complicit than me
you’re just a little more complicit than me
