God rest ye merry gentlemen
We're empty but full of dreams
Seen it on the gallery walls
Read it in books and magazines
Second Person of the Trinity
Saviour dearest friend
Two worlds crash and flesh and blood
There in bethlehem
Your love's whisper tapping on the wall
And then breaking down my door
Come and claim the ???
Come and claim what's rightfully yours
It's amazing you should seek me
I've been hiding out for so long
It's amazing you should greet me
And call my heart your home
At this time of visitation
I see how deeply that I'm spent
Melt the snow around this cold heart
With the fire of your intent
It's a tired world this Christmas
It's getting wearier by the minute
We've hit the quota overextended on the limits
Of sadness, badness and madness
Come to think of it
Come and wake the sleeping
Come and give them rest
The numb dumb damned depressed possessed naked and undressed
Hark the herald angels sing
We've heard good tiding from on high
All escape routes have been sealed off
Every alibi strangles and dies
Deity hits the newsstand
Jesus the Father sends
Two worlds crash in flesh and blood
There in bethlehem
At this time of visitation
I see how deeply I have spent
Melt the snow around my heart
With the fire of your intent
Joy to the world the Lord is come
