Track Name: Commercialism
I bought my brother a video game
my brother bought my mom some fancy earrings
mom bought my dad some shirts and ties
dad got stuck working overtime

Merry fucking Christmas off to work we go
slaving away like a HO HO HO
saving all year pinching nickels and dimes
so we can blow it all at Christmas time
so we can blow it all at Christmas time

visiting the same darn houses each year
exchanging gifts with the ones we hold dear
listening to stories you don't really want to hear
if you cared you'd see them more than once a year

Merry fucking Christmas HO HO HO
December 26th back to work we go
hammerin' away until next year
so we can blow it all at Christmas time
so we can blow it all at Christmas time

I bought my brother a video game
my brother bought my mom some fancy earrings
mom bought my dad some shirts and ties
dad got stuck working overtime

Merry fucking Christmas off to work we go
slaving away like a HO HO HO
saving all year pinching nickels and dimes
so we can blow it all at Christmas time
so we can blow it all at Christmas time
Track Name: What Do You Want For Christmas?
What do you want for Christmas?
Whoa a oh oh
Well that's too bad
Track Name: Holiday In Splitsville
Happy holidays
Cuts like razor blades
when you don't really feel like celebrating Christmas
"Feliz la-di-da"
Comes off like Ha ha ha (echo)
When you don't really feel like celebrating Christmas

I spent my whole paycheck on you
Now I can't afford any food
I'm drinking cheap beer
There's no holiday cheer for me on Christmas

Irreconcilable differences
why must we go through all this again (echo)
Now I'm wrecking the halls
with spray paint & paint balls on Christmas

No more carolers outside
I'd rather commit suicide
then hang out with your relatives
one more fucking time

to decorate the tree
with things that don't mean shit to me
besides you took all the ornaments
when we called it quits

I'm not returning any of your calls
'cause everyone has gone and pissed me off
and now I'm taking back all your presents for Christmas

Happy holidays
Cuts like razor blades
when you don't really feel like celebrating Christmas

"Feliz la-di-da"
Comes off like Ha ha ha (echo)
When you don't really feel like celebrating Christmas

Got a hospital bill from your boyfriend
Seasons greetings card from your lawyer
if that's not rubbing salt in a wound
then I don't know what fucking is

I'm not returning any of your calls
'cause everyone has gone and pissed me off
and now I'm taking back all your presents for Christmas
Track Name: After-Math
10, drink some some more eggnog that's
15, eat another cookie that's
20, have another slice of pie that's
25, go ahead and make it an even 30
hope those scales are sturdy
enough to hold the weight of your fat ass
as you finally made a conclusion
that you're not getting laid over for new years
go ahead and have a few more beers
rent some movies on pay-per-view
cause nobody's gonna be near you
as you look at yourself in the mirror
you can almost already hear 'em
laugh and call you tubby
Track Name: Socks For Christmas
This isn’t the same old Christmas story
There’s no bb guns or leg shaped lamps
The mistletoe is hung way too low
And I think we gave too much eggnog to gramps

Everybody’s being naughty, the nice list is pretty short
and the elves are passed out drunk on the floor
The Christmas carolers got a face full of snow
as we kicked 'em in the ass and shut the door

Now I don’t think it’s gonna be a happy holiday
cause everything is so screwed up,
that nobody wants to jingle all the way

Everybody’s getting socks for Christmas
Everybody’s getting socks for Christmas
I’d rather dad come home drunk
and punch me in the junk
Than getting stupid fucking socks for Christmas

All the children need to wash their mouth out with soap
The only words out of their mouth are FUCK!
Grandma she got ran over
by a drunk driving a Toys'R'Us Truck

Now Santa cannot take to the sky
cause all the reindeer got an F.U.I.
And Mrs. Claus knitted so many socks
That she jammed the knitting needles in her eye

Now everybody wants to take
But no one wants to give
And some kid melted Frosty’s snow
Now the doctors don’t think he’s gonna live

Everybody’s getting socks for Christmas
Everybody’s getting socks for Christmas
I’d rather get the Butterfly Effect on VHS
Then get stupid fucking socks for Christmas

HO HO LET'S GO!

Everybody’s getting socks for Christmas
Everybody’s getting socks for Christmas
I’d rather wreck the halls till the whole place falls
Than get some socks, Some stupid fucking socks
NOBODY WANTS SOCK FOR CHRISTMAS!
Track Name: Up On The Roof
Well the kids are tucked in bed,
All the good nights have been said
Time to put the presents underneath the tree

All gifts have been wrapped,
Finally done with all this Christmas crap
Lay out the cookies for Santa and pass the vodka to me

How ‘bout you and me go up on the roof
With a bottle of at least 80 proof

We can stay up there all night
Getting tangled up in Christmas lights
And when we’re tuckered out
We’ll come down and pass out on the couch

Pitter patter of little feet
will wake us from our sleep
a hangover will remind us of how
We spent our Christmas eve
Track Name: Happy Holidays From The CIA
They planted chips inside my head
Computers underneath my bed
dissecting all my memories
of ornaments and Christmas trees

[x3]
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid
Happy holidays from the C.I.A.

Don't be afraid, don't be afraid
of everybody, everybody

They monitor my Christmas toys
and harvest all my Christmas Joy
alternate energy for cars
popular currency on mars

[x3]
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid
Happy holidays from the C.I.A.

Don't be afraid, don't be afraid
of everybody, everybody

[x4]
I'm not insane, I'm not insane, I'm not insane,
I'm not insane, I'm not insane, HEY!

I'm not insane, I'm not insane, I'm not insane,
I'm not insane, I'm not insane, YOUR ALL CRAZY!!

I've had all that I can take
might not make it through Christmas break
but I won't give in to the fear
resolution for the new year

[x3]
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid
Happy holidays from the C.I.A.

Don't be afraid, 'cause I'm afraid
of everybody, everybody
Track Name: Ruin It For Everyone
If I'm not gonna have a merry Christmas then,
neither can you!
