Track Name: Complicityismass
here far we fall:
it decks the halls
with bows of borrowed holly leaves

just once a year
fake smiles and cheer
and wine that's neither expensive nor cheap

the shops are full
the pigs to swill
the rich will dine on your excessive charms

our happiness is their currency
its freezing
cancelled trains
staying in

the logfire coals
and stolen oil
resources claimed to keep you all appeased

your loved ones close
the christmas roast
what are these precious seconds worth?

aspiring to some archaic scene
dickensian
gather friends
and spend

celebrate our own stupidity
exchanging gifts and intoxicated pleasantries

a story told
a bible sold
a charming if redundant nativity

does any of this sound familiar?
Track Name: Rose
rose noone knows
rose how it shows
you whisper that i don't believe
in sad salutes and rosaries,

rose on my mind and in my nose
seven hours in the snow
rose

i'll pirouhette so gracefully
in search of some eternity, rose

outside the children singing
an empty house is singing
in factories and tv screens
sombre smiles and wooden hearts and modern dreams and credit cards they're singing

rose all your beauty comes and goes
and it keeps me on my toes
and if there's nowhere else to go
Track Name: An honest appraisal
amidst the snow
nowhere to go
in vain you spin the plates

a sudden storm
on a winter morn
would lift your spirits and cancel going to work

let us see a bright day
not scrambling for amounts

ignoring that it's rich with
insistent first world doubts.

i woke to find
i'd left behind
all dreams of festivities

society has purchased me
now i'm paying off its debt
this i will not forget

let us have a good time
with friends lovers and wine

far away yes far away
WE STEAL PRECIOUS SECONDS

our eyes of tired
of your christmas time

but we stay in it's arms for the night
and it feels alright.
