The Last Christmas (Single)

lyrics

An angry man is yelling at America on TV
I’m pretty comfortable saying he ain’t talking to me
He says we've come too far from who we really are
and everybody seems to agree
So this may be the last Christmas that any of us will see

Everything is falling apart
So the plans are quite involved
And even though we've got ideas
Nothing really can be solved
So if thats all then that's all

We used to just be civilized, decades going strong
Somehow we all found a way to grow up and get along
Never being honest about what was going on
It's a heavy load to carry, we were doing it all wrong

'Cause now it has turned out maybe we weren't being true
Angry at Latinos, along with Muslims, Blacks, and Jews
What's a nation of immigrants to do?

It doesn’t feel like we’re standing on the brink of all out war
But feeling like that hasn't stopped it all from happening before
Maybe it’s just time now
Maybe we’re running out of steam
And this may be the last Christmas that any of us will see

Are we circling the drain?
Is this real or just a dream?
This may be the last Christmas that any of us will see
