Because the holiday season could use a little cynicism.

Lyric Video:


Deck the halls with holly
Acting like you're jolly
Light a ceremonial log
Hang your ugly stockings
Spend your nest egg shopping
For a baby you believe was a god

Me, I'm not so lucky
Holidays are sucky
Santa never comes to my home
Every year he forgets
Never brings me presents
Now that I'm living alone

I just want to forget about Christmas
I've lost all my holiday cheer
I just want to forget about Christmas
Maybe he'll remember next year

Give the tree an angel
Lights you must untangle
Buy a fruitcake nobody wants
Gather all your aunties
Their children and their nannies
For an annual exchanging of socks

I'm still all alone here
Don't see any reindeer
I don't think they're coming at all
Guess I'm off the nice list
Ready to say fuck this
And buy myself some stuff at the mall

I just want to forget about Christmas
I don't care if Santa's real
I just want to forget about Christmas
Even if it takes a whole year

Maybe I'll move to somewhere far away
File a change of address
Somewhere where Santa Claus won't know my name
I'll get away from this mess

I'll pack my things and I'll leave in the night
By New Year's Day I'll be gone
I'll get weird looks from the people I meet
They'll stop and ask me what's wrong

And I'll say...

I just can't quite forget about Christmas
Though it was a week ago
I can't seem to forget about Christmas
I just can't let it go

I just want to forget about Christmas
Now I know Santa's not real
I just have to forget about Christmas
There won't be a next year
