about

Following the tradition from last year, Bran is releasing another holiday digital EP for FREE! You may notice that you CAN pay for these songs, and if you choose to do so, all proceeds will go to feed and clothe the homeless in Bran's local area of Kansas City, through the Rime Buddhist Center's Homeless Outreach Program, which aims at delivering food and clothes every single Sunday to homeless camps.

The money received from purchases of this EP will go directly to buying food and clothing, which will then be donated to said Homeless Outreach program.

The songs on this EP aims at the theme of holiday cheer, generosity, winter, and of course as the title hints at, CHANGE, a perfect combination for this time of year!

Track Name: Tis the Season to Spend Money (2016 version)
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 (2016 version)
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
Oh in the slumberlands
See his face, the cold embrace
Old man winter comes again
to the slumberlands
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: Be Kind, Be Gentle, Give, Be True
In the face of the angry, shine with lovingkindness
In the face of the harsh, be gentle
In the face of the greedy, share with them generosity
In the face of the false, be true
Track Name: Letting Go
I’m letting go
Letting go
I relinquish
I release

I’m letting go
Letting go
So that I might find
Peace

I open up
I open up
To whatever I meet

I open up
I open up
It’s the only way
To peace

I soften my heart
I soften my heart
To the present moment
Here

I soften my heart
I soften my heart
And only then
Is it clear
Track Name: Keep on Standing (Standing Rock)
Big pigs are digging
Their graves
They’re trying to take
The land away again

The big pigs are rigging
The systems yet again
Hiding behind racist lies
Jump starting mankind’s demise

(chorus)
Standing Rock
versus men in black
Keep on standing
Take the land back

Taking blood
From metal veins
We can’t live off
Of acid rain

River runs,
light a match
River burns,
see it catch

chorus

Water is sacred
The blood of our Mother
Water is life
For our sisters and our brothers

chorus
Track Name: Like a Lightbulb! (Rudolph the Lightbulb Edition)
You know Dasher and Dancer
And all of the reindeer
You know Rudolph and his song
That you always hear

But now you will listen
To the new lightbulb edition!

Are you ready?

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
LIKE A LIGHTBULB!
And if you ever saw him
You would even say it glows
LIKE A LIGHTBULB
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
LIKE A LIGHTBULB
They'd never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games
LIKE LIGHTBULB CATCH

Then one foggy christmas eve
Santa came to say
"HEY LIGHTBULB!"
Rudolph with your nose so bright
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight
LIKE A LIGHTBULB

Then all the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee
"YAY LIGHTBULB!"
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
You'll go down in history
LIKE THE LIGHTBULB

Wait a minute, this is supposed to be the lightbulb edition...
There's not enough lightbulbs!
Let's try this again!

Light bulb the Light bulb Light bulb
Light bulb Light bulb Light bulb
Light bulb the Light bulb Light bulb
Light bulb Light bulb Light bulb
et cetera, ad nauseum....
