Track Name: Santa Claus Is Coming to Town
You better watch out
Better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why,
Santa Claus is coming to town

He's making a list
and checking it twice.
Gonna find out who's naughty or nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees when you're sleeping.
He knows when you're awake.
He knows if you've been bad or good.
So be good for goodness sake

O! You better watch out
Better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why,
Santa Claus is coming to town

The kids and girls in boyland
will have a jubilee.
They're going to build a toyland town,
all around the Christmas tree.

You better watch out
Better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why,
Santa Claus is coming to town
Track Name: Hymn to the Fallen (Acoustic)
How do you believe what you see
Rising stern in the wind
What you seek is eternity?
A season gone, now begins

How do you perceive what you see
Tears erode you to sand
Slow but sure, till you cease to be
Yet firmly still there you stand
Proud and clear
Knowing the end is drawing near

Will all be unsound?
How many stories told of rises and falls?
We wish time could be unwound
Waiting on a noble call

The seasons gone and the kingdom come
Foretold in no written pages
Here ends undone
Our search through the ages

Will all be unsound?
So many stories told of rises and falls
No tears left but to frown
For those who've fallen

If eyes for eyes pay the price
What sacrifice could break this cage of ice?
Track Name: O Come, O Come Emmanuel
O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny
From depths of Hell Thy people save
And give them victory o'er the grave
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel
