It’s Christmas time and all your heroes are dead

So love yourself, your family and friends tonight instead

There’s panic on the streets you know, it’s looking rough out there

They mistook Rudolph for a drone and shot him out the air

We’re waiting for a victory

We’re hoping for a sign

We’re waiting for the winter sun to slowly rise and shine

It’s Christmas time and all your heroes are dead

So love yourself, your family and friends tonight instead

It’s Christmas time and all your dreams are gone

But Santa’s on his way to bring a new and hopeful dawn

They said that Santa got detained while trying to cross the border

They said he hadn’t got his visa paperwork in order

Brian, 60, mortgage paid, screams scientists are lying

School kids marching in the streets to stop the planet dying


It’s Christmas time and all your heroes are dead

The ghost of Daniel Johnston came and hovered by my bed

We talked about some random things then finally he said

Merry Christmas and True Love Will Find You In The End


Burn it all, throw it all on the fire

It’s Christmas Day; a new age is on the way
