Family Animals Scranton, Pennsylvania

Hello my friend! Our names are Jesse, Anthony and Francis

And we declare that doing what you’re told can be quite thankless

So we surrendered to the lurking void of rock n’ roll

And followed something coming from each of our hearts and souls

We strive for abstract expertise they can’t teach you in school

Cause every Family Animal was born to break the rules

Track Name: Blizzard Bull
Don't forget to celebrate the cause
Although I can't remember what it was

Tradition though I'm not sure what it means
But the perfect place to compliment the tree

White road
Big coat
Breathing in air
And blowing out smoke
Blizzard bull
Shovel full
Bury me
I'll achieve that ultimate buzz

A jolly bearded man named Santa Clause
A humble man who died upon the cross
Celebrate anyway

White road
Big coat
Breathing in air
And blowing out smoke
Blizzard bull
Shovel full
Bury me
I'll achieve that ultimate buzz

Old friend
My kin
Now ain't that
the darnedest thing
those weary old eyes
have ever seen
I wouldn't trade my confusion
for a thing
Track Name: The Abominable Snowman
I seen him in his himalayan home
shifting with the snow

He scurried but I'm sure I'm gaining slack
Step behind his track

On the search for the fabled frozen man
On the search and I'll do the best I can
I'll solve the mystery it's true!
Every woman or man in the promised land
won't forget my face again

I seen him on a himalayan night
Blended with the white

I approached him cautiously too close
Turned and ripped my throat

So the search for the fabled frozen man
Had to end but I did the best I can
I'm sure you'll read it in the news
That a stranger met a mysterious end
You won't see his face again
Track Name: A Deer In The Road
Falling down on christmas eve.
The tree made a mess on the floor.
And he's hoping the "invitations that I sent all must be lost in the mail. I'll just party all by myself!"

And he says "I don't want anything for Christmas. I just want to be left all alone. And there's no need for any mistletoe this year. " So he takes it down, starts choking on his throat.

The punchbowl holds enough for twelve,
he says, "I'll drink it myself!" And he does.
"I'll play all the games!" And he does.
Unwrapping the presents beneath the tree.
He rips them to pieces ungracefully.
He's writing a letter "Dear Everyone,
Thanks for coming to my party. It was a lot of fun."

Now the room's spinning around
And everything is slowing down.
He takes a rest on the floor.
and keeps his eyes on the door
"I gotta keep my eyes open wide if my guests should arrive. I'll just put a note on the door 'I drank too much, I'm on the floor'."

And he dreams of a beautiful party
And all his friends are at the door
And everybody sings to a beautiful melody.
But he's out of key, and starts choking on his throat.

Woke up to the telephone. "hello?"
He spoke with a friend. "Where have you been?! A deer in the road?".

They ran to a phone and called 911. Now several are laid up in the hospital. The few that were okay, they prayed all night. "Please god help my loved ones make it through the night"
He holds no expression upon his face.
He says "merry christmas". Then he faints.
Track Name: Happy New Year!
Gravity really brings me down
It's intent to keep me on the ground
when I don't want to stay.
Tried to speed things up a bit
I pulled the trigger but my finger slipped
I didn't want to leave.

I will tell you while I can
don't try and understand
anything at all.

Please don't misconstrue my words
I'm not speaking in terms
of anything at all.

I saw a film not long ago
It made me sad to watch the credits roll.
I waited in my seat.

I want to be the leading role
and live the story just as it was told,
remember all my lines

They're laughing at me down in hell,
angels are over my head weeping.
I put on one hell of a show,
perceiving when nothing is set in stone.

Gravity really helps me out
it's intent to keep my body down,
I never want to leave

From infinity to one
the Rapture has begun
we're nearing Bethlehem.

I know you've heard this all before
But I pray to God that you're
prepared for what's to come.

There are lines on your face now that prove my point to you.
And you'll cry, "Oh god no!", but that won't do no good. It's over.
