Happy Holidays

Late at night
I hear their screams
obscenities
infidelities
and I can't believe that its Christmas eve

And this is supposed
to be a joyous day
but they take that away
And I'd like to say

Happy Holidays
and Merry Christmas
I just don't understand
how you could do this
You set us up
to take the fall
And for this family
It won't be
A Merry Christmas at all

And this is supposed to be
about love and not hate
they debate
and belate
this checkmate
And I can't relate

and I just don't understand
how they can take this away
this precious day
and I have to say

Happy Holidays
and Merry Christmas
I just don't understand
how you can do this
You set us up
to take the fall
And for this family
It won't be
A Merry Christmas at all

Now children are crying
alone in their beds
no visions of sugar plumes
dance in their heads
And their straining their ears
for sounds of Santa Clause
but all that they hear
are your screams without pause
Their waiting for hope
their waiting for dreams
but there is no more
in stark reality
I hope you are happy
with what you done
you've ruined Christmas
you've made it not fun
I'm shunning you now
so please go away
'cause I may have to repeat
these words that I just can't say...

Happy Holidays
and Merry Christmas
I just don't understand
how you could do this
You set us up
To take the fall
And for this family
It won't be
A Merry Christmas at all

It will never be
A Merry Christmas at all
