lyrics

Hang me
Hang me
From the top of the christmas tree
From the top of the christmas tree hang me
Then throw me out when January comes

Sleep tight
Sleep tight
As I fill the room with light
As I fill the room with light sleep tight
And then bust me when I finally burn out

I am replaceable
Biodegradable
Trying hard but completely unsustainable
I am a birthday cake
With one bite out of it
Desiccated but not freaking out about it

I’ll rot
I’ll rot
Just some garbage you forgot
Just some garbage you forgot I’ll rot
Until I am absorbed into the soil

I’ll grow
I’ll grow
Through the refuse and the snow
Through the refuse and the snow I’ll grow
Until my roots reach all across the earth

I am reappearing
Bold and domineering
And not nearly adequately god-fearing
I am an ice cream cone
Thrown on linoleum
Laced with knockoff adderall and lithium

Prepare
Prepare
Can you feel it in the air?
Can you feel it in the air, prepare
I’ll not be so easily cast aside

I’ll rise
I’ll rise
Like a phoenix to the skies
Like a phoenix to the skies I’ll rise
And rain fire down upon you from above

I am invincible
Imputrescible
Vengeant and completely incoercible
I am an ancient god
Wrathful and furious
And in the end I’ll always be victorious
