This first one is dedicated to my fellow lost and/or stuck adults.

Carbon Leaf - "What About Everything" [mp3]
Holiday quiet on these streets, except for some stubborn leaves
That didn't fall with the fall, and now they clatter in vain
Holiday sky, midnight clear
Wind is high, hard to steer
Old muffler rumbles like an old fighter plane
In search of some rest, in search of a break
From a life of tests where something's always at stake
Before time takes each year, like a knife cuts it clear
It's school, then work and then life that just sharpens the blade
I think about time for fun
I think about time for play
Then I think about being done, with no résumé
With no one left to blame
What about fortune and fame?
What about your love to obtain?
What about the ring?
What about everything?

No, really, though, it's a holiday song. It says so. It's just a holiday song about all the shitty things you feel when another year is ending with no progress made on any front, and everyone else seems to be celebrating their great lives.

Next we have a song for dysfunctional family holidays.

Something Corporate - "Forget December" [mp3]
New Years Eve came, but nothing had changed
All the problems just got worse
We sat in silence
No routine science could heal the sickness we rehearse
And if I'm talking, my words are mocking
the deaf ears they have fallen on
These words are tainted with years of jaded
innocence that's all but gone

"Jaded innocence that's all but gone." Jesus, ouch, how did I not remember that was in there?

I actually have soooooo many Christmas break-up songs, and that was super nice a few years in my life but none more than 2011, whoo. Here's a favorite.

Fall Out Boy - "Yule Shoot Your Eye Out" [mp3]
And I'm of good cheer 'cause I've been checking my list
The gifts you're receiving from me will be:
One awkward silence
Two hopes you cry yourself to sleep, staying up, waiting by the phone
And all I want this year is for you to dedicate your last breath to me before you bury yourself alive

I could actually do an entire playlist of these angry, spiteful Christmas songs for your ex, if anyone's in need. You just let me know, I've got this shit covered.

It's all downhill from here. )

Brad Kavanagh featuring Tasie D - "We Shall Overcome" [mp3]

People come together now as one
Every race and colour, we're under one sun
Shelter, turn your back against the wind
Things'll change, you'll turn the page
It's time to begin

Watching people smiling in the rain
We're thankful for the gift of life today
Another year is coming to an end
Together we will make it through
Just turn to a friend
Although despair lingers on
Dry your tears, just keep on

We shall overcome
Tear it down, dry your eyes
Build it up and start again
Thy will be done
Tear it down, dry your eyes
Build it up and start again
