Track Name: New Year Affair [@theOrphanBar]
New Year Affair [@theOrphanBar]

Come up north you know it won't sustain,
The longest icicles that have ever been
It's cold in your arms, orphan ghost
Percolating inside the host

A new year affair
Down at the Orphan Bar

I feel like I'm coming down with something
I feel like I'm coming down something
And on top of it my abominable abdominal pain is walking all over it

Ghost of future past participle
Present and he's unstoppable
He’s stuffing the bird and calling his boss
He’s leaving work to come get cranberry sauced

It's a new year affair
Down at the Orphan Bar
Track Name: Solstice
Solstice

Solstice
dig us out and swallow the dark sky
Solstice, Solstice
from here on out we'd follow any light
Solstice
Let your cool sky bleed back home
Twenty-one, Twenty-two
Northern hemisphere
Turn
Turn us on
We'd follow any light

Drive our sky in
Let your cool sky bleed back home
And when nothing's left, but nothing left
Solstice
Fold in on yourself

At your mercy
We’ve evolved
Your shortest day
At your mercy must revolve
It must revolve
We’re forever not envolved
We'd follow any light
And mark your longest
Track Name: Santa Does the No Fly Zone
Santa Does the No Fly Zone

There's a party up North and you’re not invited
It's for the pure with so much love they're enlightened
Giving their only hands all around open hearted
They're world renowned for keeping up where they started
And all of his friends
Answer on the call
Delivered on time
Little toy soldiers and big eyed dolls

The world's his atlas,
The sky his throne
He's just days away
From the no fly zone

He keeps his word
In the clear or the storm
And he sets the tone
From which all magic's born
But he's losing ground
As the planet warms
And his wooden sleigh
Breathes no emissions

He's taking his act on the road
He flies alone into the no fly zone

His mighty chariot
Everywhere but home
Propelled by reindeer
As champions they're known
The world's his atlas
The sky his throne
He's just days away
He do the no fly zone
Do the no fly zone
Papa noel does the no fly zone
Creeps your house and home
Do the no fly zone
Track Name: Last Minute Man
Kringle: Last Minute Man

Last minute man
The last minute man

Like the back of your hand
He knows he's the last minute man
All told he, he could do
Do it with 50 names
With creepy cries
From all the children of the world

The Last minute man
Last minute man
All told he was never one to

Say he's the one to
Say he's the one to
Say he's the one to
Say he's the one to

Last minute man
The last minute man

All told he was never one to
Say he's the one to
Say he's the one to
Track Name: A Little Prayer of Mine [Orphan Ghost]
A Little Prayer of Mine [Orphan Blues]

Look at the corn cob wrinkles on my dank red face
I’m the orphan ghost that was displaced
Step into my office, come out into the cold
Feel me feel mine and see how the other story goes

A little prayer of mine
to see you
walk a hundred thousand miles
in my donated shoes

I got the spirits down inside of me
A side dish of tomorrow, I’m leftover no one’s memory
You don’t always get another go around
Heavy Lord, how do you, how, how do you

Look down on the people on the ground
At the speed of sound and mach twos
From the starting line you pin some of us to lose

How can i be a marvel when all I ever knew
Was stomach knots and the sound of siren drowns and honk town
In exchange for your virgin mama take these orphan blues
