Tyranny of the Calendar

by Hot Liquids Burn Like Fire

Track Name: Tyranny of the Calendar
Everybody has already
Done their Christmas shopping
Things are wrapped and hidden
Boxes adorned with ribbon
To and from cards neatly written

Everybody has already
Made their resolutions
A diet and a new look
A little less Facebook
Try and read a real book

Ho, ho, ho it’s
I’m alive and I’m here
It’s the end of the year
As if you didn’t
Know, no, no
It’s the end of the tyranny of the calendar

Everybody has already
Planned their Christmas menu
Same food as before
Starches and starches and starches galore
Until you can stomach no more

Everybody has already
Planned their new year’s drinking
Start with a well-oaked white
Then chug anything in sight
Toast with fake champagne at midnight

Ho, ho, ho it’s
I’m alive and I’m here
It’s the end of the year
As if you didn’t
Know, no, no
It’s the end of the tyranny of the calendar
