Track Name: Christmas Break
When Christmas break comes, I'll be gettin' in my car
30 minutes down the road is not very far
And I'll see you all when this year ends
When January rolls around and the new one begins

Almost time for Christmas break
And you won't see a single snowflake
There's no snow on the ground
That's okay because I've found
I feel content in my hometown

When Christmas break comes, I'll be goin' back to work
40 hours every week as a soda jerk
And I'm hoping I won't be here late
I'm thinking I'll be off by 8

Almost time for Christmas break
And you won't see a single snowflake
There's no snow on the ground
That's okay because I've found
I feel content in my hometown
Track Name: Gift Exchange
It's that time again
Christmas white elephant
That awkward gift exchange
The results just might seem strange

You're a dude and you got a lingerie set
I heard that it was brought by your ex
I'm a cat person but I got a bag of dogfood!
The vegan got the 3 meat sampler
The lactoid wound up with cheese cobbler
Grandpa didn't exactly want a coloring book!

Everybody's so confused
These gifts will never be used
What a waste of our time and our money
We do this just because we think it's funny

It's that time again
Christma white elephant
That awkward gift exchange
The results just might seem strange to you!

The axe murderer got a brand new axe
Everybody watch your backs!
Who invited him to the party anyway?
Teenage lobotomy got a mood ring
He never even feels anything
The crystal in the middle doesn't change

Everybody's so confused
These gifts will never be used
What a waste of our time and our money
We do this just because we think it's funny

It's that time again
Christmas white elephant
That awkward gift exchange
The results just might seem strange to you!
Track Name: New Year's Bonfire
It's that time
The year is coming to an end
It's on your mind
You'll be making your resolutions

But will they last?
Will you really stop to think about it?
Put in the past
All of your unwanted habits

Bonfires in the night
Watch the flames begin to rise
Will you really change at all?
Try to burn the past away
Three hundred sixty five Days
Never changes anything

I do it too
I say that things are bound to change
But if they do
Then why do we have this exchange of

Our lists each year
Saying what we plan set straight
And then I swear
This time nothing stands in my way

Bonfires in the night
Watch the flames begin to rise
Will you really change at all?
Try to burn the past away
Three hundred sixty five Days
Never changes anything
Track Name: Time Machine For Christmas
I have Christmas memories
Playing my Gameboy by the tree
Trying to beat my Zelda game
Things have never been the same

I remember being a kid
Lookin' for the gifts that my parents hid
Going for hay rides in the cold
But now I feel I might be too old

I need a time machine for Christmas
I need a time machine for Christmas
That would be such a perfect gift

Listening to Beach Boys Christmas tunes
Cap'n Crunch & holiday cartoons
Taping Rudolph and Charlie Brown
Seeing the lights at Christmas Town

I need a time machine for Christmas
I need a time machine for Christmas
That would be such a perfect gift

Guess I should just let it go
Each year is another memory, I know
Guess I should just move along
And sing this Christmas song

I need a time machine for Christmas
I need a time machine for Christmas
So keep that in mind!
