Track Name: In the Trap of the Mountain King (feat. Shedlyn)
verse 1
I'm swiping left and right before Christmas night
typin up messages no end in sight
(she got three pictures and an overbite
and the way she write, well she ain't bright!)

ah what the heck have an in-person view
she got cute frecks and her texts are blue
(that means iMessage and an iPhone too)
give me twenty minutes know what I'll do

I'll meet her on the Ave in my Rav
light the tree, see Santa, have a laugh
getting stopped by kids for my autograph
happy hour Til 7, so my tab is half

Santa saying ho (got me thinking it's a message) can't pretend to know but I'm cautious bout the wreckage
double deck perspective, check my prime directive>
not tryina make mistakes cause things are kinda festive

chorus
Matching with the ladies on that dating app
she acting kinda shady (it's a trap)
mashed taters with the gravy, ham is on the map>
Christmas dinner plans with her fam (it's a trap)

verse 2
Christmas Eve got that liturgy
incense and smoke, holy mysteries
(who takes a first date out to a church?)
I do fool, that's just how I work

get out the church we gowin get some grub
look for tacos with a spicy rub
al pastor, (now you're in troub)
turn tako cheena to an impromptu club

it's Christmas on the dance floor you know I'm acting tough
all them little gangsters gotta show me love
pranksters and drankers in fluffed ear muffs
(do right by baby Jesus don't use fisticuffs)

things were going great but she started getting weird
she was pulling at my fingers, tugging on my beard
she bit me on my haunches, said "here's the thing
you've seduced the fairest maid of the mountain king"
Track Name: Lonely Christmas (Don't Let Go)
it's Christmas time in Boynton Beach
mama's cooking chicken but she's out of reach
she's on the left coast I stayed home in Florida
chose to be alone and pray for the Lord ta>
be my Christmas gift, cause I'm feeling adrift
feel weighty mortality, wish this spit would lift
Holiday formalities, car crash fatalities
next year I outlive dad, messed up life dualities
joy and pain not the same but they mix like paint
create a new color, so some things are gained
this year left me drained, my best girl walked away
did everything I could to be good and to convey
that I care but I swear it all vanished like air
but if I'm learning from life, I'm no worse for the wear
now I'm confused about home and is it in sight
is it where I grew up? or where I sleep at night?

hook
it's been a lot of years, it's been a lot of time
life is like a climb, grab that nook on the incline
don't let go for your life, don't let go 'less you're done
there comes a time for all when we cannot hang or run

temptations abound, tryin not to run aground>
I put back upon my head that Royal Ruckus crown
all I want for Christmas is my boy flatline
we made a double album, it's about dang time
homie's over there, and I am over here
but we storming the Bastille like we were some musketeers
like Robes-pierre, we incorruptible
but I stand against that dude, the state's destructible
all I want for Christmas is no president
can we get congress to dissolve their torments
fomenting this mess, media creating stress
Facebook comments, nauseating work distressed
gotta love my neighbor whether Donald or the Aytch>
put away my light saber, forgive the KKK
all I want for Christmas is peace above all things
return their hate with love, I would die for the exchange

forgiveness...is the revolution
beauty...will save the world
Track Name: Sleep Now, Children
it's christmas time...
holiday...

sleep now, kids, it's a wonderful life
call it quits, get some rest tonight
it'll be alright, tomorrow holds promise
the light of Christ, shines and causes
hope to burn bright, enlightens all people
our king is good, his kingdom is peaceful
he promised to return, right every wrong
heal the infirm and make the weak strong

from the land before time there was a grand plan
to form a love enshrined, in a god-man
wasn't robbery, fatherly, can't understand
properly planned, shed the blood of the lamb
eve bought the scam, Adam made a mess
said no to the Father, Mary said yes
the savior as child, virgin's delight
unscrambles all pain, uncreated light
