Here in the midwest, winter can get a little lonely and people can get the blues. We lean on music and on each other to get through the dark and cold, and offer up this collection of alternative Christmas songs in hopes that it can do the same for you.

In the spirit of the season, all Bandcamp sales of this album will be donated to The Black String Triage Ensemble, a group of classical musicians who play music at Milwaukee crime scenes after the law enforcement teams have left. Unless you live under a rock, you know that Milwaukee has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes - from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. Please give if you can to support the innovative and heartfelt work of this organization.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and hope to see you at one of the live concerts showcasing this work.

Track Name: Santa Claus
Santa Claus
Eats what he wants
Goes where he pleases
And nobody resists

Cause he's Santa Claus
He do what he do
He where the same suit
To every photo shoot

Santa Claus, Santa Claus
Oh my cookies, Santa Claus
This world crumbles and gets lost
But still believes in Santa Claus

Santa Claus
His laugh is a cough
He slides down the chimney
To put candy in socks

Santa Claus
He lives where he wants
And nobody knows
Anything else that he does

Santa Claus, Santa Claus
Oh my cookies, Santa Claus
This world crumbles and gets lost
But one day a year Santa Claus
Yeah one day a year Santa Claus
One day a year Santa Claus
Track Name: Shutdown Mode
This Christmas, I'm going shutdown mode
I'll spend it all alone
and then I'll get so stoned
That I won't know
If it's Christmas time at all
Track Name: No Tears
This is a challenging time
It's cold and often lonely
Let's sing together and feel wonderfully
And not let Christmas be
What we expect it to be
Track Name: Cold Cold Cold Cold
Cold Cold Cold Cold
Let this Christmas time be
Cold Cold Cold Cold
Oh so so cold
That there's nowhere we should go
Track Name: Christmas is a Time for Dreaming
Christmas made these plans for me
Empty room on an empty street
Broken heart moved by broken feet
To the bed for and endless sleep
