Track Name: Christmas Distance
Excuse me a minute, I think
I’ve had a bit much eggnog
The reds and the greens are all running
with my composure, down the drain again

I want to be present while presents
Are opened in the morning
I’m just having trouble forgetting
My one, my absentee

Silent is the drummer boy as Mary holds her baby close
The herald angels shrug and look around
Platitudes of old wise men are chintzy as our tinsel’d den
And now I’m as depressed as Charlie Brown
Desperate for meaning in this

No, really, no more, please, I’m stuffed
And overstimulated
We’ve been ‘round the TV for hours
And my merry is starting to slip

God, we’re talking politics
And my merry is starting to slip

-So-
Silent is the drummer boy as Mary holds her baby close
The herald angels shrug and look around
Platitudes of old wise men are chintzy as our tinsel’d den
And now I’m as depressed as Charlie Brown (iv)
This year I’d half expect my phone to buzz in church again
Embarrassed but relieved to hear the sound
We’d snark and joke
through halfhearted toasts
