about

On December 1st 2008, I woke up in a pre-Xmas funk and this is the result.

Here are two versions, a few pics, the video clips from 2008 and 2009, and one from 2011 with all the lyrics so you can carol along with The Dark One! And all of this FOR FREE, with no strings attached.

Happy Nonchristmas to all! (...and peace and blablabla...)

Track Name: No Plans For Christmas (2008)
NO PLANS FOR CHRISTMAS

The black, black forest with its black, black animals is calling my name
Just too bad I couldn't find the broom, now I've got to go home by train instead
Oh, I must have screamed while I slept. Well, the windows are all shattered
A most lovely effet I must keep in mind for the carolling.

Oh Glory Hallelu,
All the stuff I put myself through
I hope I'll go down with the flu
And sweat it out on Christmas Day

Throw the turkey away and eat some hot curry
That'll set some holy fire to my guts and my butt
And that's just the start
Then I'll play it by ear
My plan's no plans for Christmas

The black, black gates of the black, black forest open up with clockwork precision
The soil that brought this lovely flower forth needs to be fed all over again
It's mealtime for you, too
They'll be cunning and quick so you won't have the time to cough up your stuffing
And all at once, that happy warm feeling hits you flat in the chest

Oh Glory Hallelu,
All the stuff we put ourselves through
Why can't we just all get the flu
And sweat it out on Christmas Day

Throw the turkey away and eat some hot curry
That'll set some holy fire to our guts and our butts
And that's just the start
Then we'll play it by ear
My plan's no plans for Christmas Day

Just how do you explain the irrepressible urge to hurt someone
When the food is good and the welcome is warm?

Throw the turkey away and eat some hot curry
That'll set some holy fire to our guts and our butts
And that's just the start
Then we'll play it by ear
My plan's no plans for Christmas this year
