Lyrics

The cross seemed silly given your nature
We can both agree…that’s worth fighting for
Please excuse my chuckle, as nothing more than a joke
I tell myself with reverence when I feel like I’m losing hope

The holidays are near and I need a confession
The holidays are near and I’ve lost my religion
The holidays are near and I lost my way

So if you’d be so kind
as to take me back in time
I’d do it all the same
except I’d wait there for a sign

Danger in the voice
Where will it lead me?
Victim in the sky
You’re not my deity

I can hear you through the peach leaves
shriveled up and dying as will I
I can follow your book and entertain its silly bloodshed lies
But if I can’t hear myself anymore I’ll blame you
For the holidays are near and I need to
confess…but what shall it be
God please take me out of this dream!
Oozing with holiday cheer
and fear…

[Hark how the bells
Sweet silver bells
All seem to say
Throw cares away

Christmas is here
Bringing good cheer
To young and old
Meek and the bold

Oh how they pound
Raising the sound
O'er hill and dale
Telling their tale

Christmas is here
Bringing good cheer
To young and old
Meek and the bold

O holy night the stars are brightly shining
O holy night the stars are brightly shining
O holy night the stars are brightly shining
Sweet silver bells
All seem to say
O holy night the stars are brightly shining
O night divine]

The holidays are here and I need a confession
The holidays are here and I’ve lost my religion
The holidays are here and I lost my way
So if you’d be so kind
as to take me back in time
I’d do it all the same
except I’d know there is no sign
