Track Name: Tis the Season to Spend Money
Tis the season to spend money, fa la la la la la la la la
To the stores like bees to honey, fa la la la la la la la la

As they fight for that last toy, fa la la la la la la la la
That they think will bring them joy, fa la la la la la la la la

Wrap it up with bows of silver, fa la la la la la la la la
And pray that Old St. Nick delivers, fa la la la la la la la la

Their Christmas list 1000 pages, fa la la la la la la la la
As the corporate pawns work for slave wages, fa la la la la la la la la

When their stash hits the ceiling, fa la la la la la la la la
They start to feel that sinking feeling, fa la la la la la la la la

They fill their carts with all that stuff, fa la la la la la la la la
But in their hearts it's not enough, fa la la la la la la la la

Oh tis the season to spend money, fa la la la la la la la la
I think it's sad and rather funny, fa la la la la la la la la

That just because we can buy stuff, fa la la la la la la la la
We think we can put a price on love, fa la la la la la la la la

So stop your ceaseless, greedy shopping, fa la la la la la la la la
Ignore all those prices dropping, fa la la la la la la la la

Turn away from those Black Friday deals, fa la la la la la la la la
And remember millions go without meals, fa la la la la la la la la

So tonight try to be with family, fa la la la la la la la la
Remember peace and being happy, fa la la la la la la la la

Is about giving thanks for living, fa la la la la la la la la
Cuz that's the spirit of thanksgiving, fa la la la la la la la la

Track Name: The Slumberlands
sleep comes easy when
the sky does dark so soon
One minute you've just woken up
The next it's dark by noon

sleep comes easy when
The sky goes gray
And the green gives way to brown
Gives way to white
No light here in the
slumberlands

(chorus)
In the slumberlands
The slumberlands
See his face, the cold embrace
Old man winter comes again
In the slumberlands
In the Slumberlands


The deep comes creeping in
The cold it numbs your toes
Just clutch that hot cup of tea
As the steam it warms your nose

There's not much else to do
When it's minus twenty two outside
Just stoke the flames and play your games
Until Summer comes again

Chorus

Track Name: We Can't Hold Hands When We're Pointing Fingers
I'm not patriotic so to speak
But borders don't mean much to me
Freedom don't mean much
When not everyone is free
So tonight I'll lay down
And try to sleep

I try to see things in different light
That's the only way I know how to live life
But a few of us don't know
How to live and let live
And that's what I'd
Consider sin

(chorus)
Sticks and Stones can break my bones
But words will always linger
You can't hold hands
When you're pointing fingers

There's a man who's different by his looks
He lives his life by a different book
They say he's not one of us
And that makes him a danger
Why should we have to tolerate
this stranger?

But I think you'd be surprised if you saw
Just how alike we all are
You shouldn't judge a book
By what is on its cover
You see, the stranger really is
A brother

chorus

Be it muslim, christian, pagan, atheist, or jew
And all the rest, we're all human too
Just celebrate all those things
We think makes us differ
I guaranteed you'll see
a bigger picture


Let's all gather up and form a ring
Around the whole wide world and sing
The song of planet Earth
The song that tells the tale
Of when the human race and love
Prevailed

chorus

(bridge)
We swear by peace and love to stand
Heart to heart and hand in hand
Mark, oh Spirit please hear us now
Confirming this our sacred vow

Peace, love, and blessed be
Peace, love, and blessed be
Peace, love, and blessed be
Peace, love, and blessed be
