about

it's not the usual sort of christmas song
you might call it an ecological lament

lyrics

left alone on christmas day, i drove down to the sea
to ask the fish to check me out and tell me i'm still me (free)
they looked me up, they looked me down, they rolled their shining eyes
and offered they opinion that the tides were on the rise
"the future's bleak for human kind and those that walk the earth
their spirits burn, their bodies bleach, white crows attend their births
strange currents swirl, dark rumours fly, around the ocean floor
we've even heard that jesus doesn't love you anymore"
we're left a sad and godless crew upon our sunken ship
the frozen chants of progress blind upon our bloodless lips
one day the sea will drain away the wind will tilt our sails
but for now the pine trees dream of earth and coffin nails
