Silent night, lonely night
Angels gone, out of sight
Shepherds back at their graveyard shift jobs
Magi still on the road miles off
Eat your dinner now please
Eat your dinner now please

Sleepless night, painful tooth
Nothing calms, nothing soothes
Overtired and needing your rest
Who was that who said I am most blessed?
Cries and lullabies sing
Cries and lullabies sing

Silent night, holy night
Sacred work, precious time
Small apartment, the rent is not cheap
Beats a stable that smells like wet sheep
Finally got him to sleep
Finally got him to sleep


from Christmas Incandescence, released December 11, 2020
