another senseless week
of crowded thoughts
and crooked teeth
morning frost and frozen sidewalks
all those days that burn inside us
swell up in the silence
of snowflakes falling magically

but the magic fades into the memory
sleigh bells ringing
laughing all the way
cold hands of winter grasp
as i gasp for breath
is this my last?
no thoughts of dying
no more self loathing for today

so deck the halls with drunken folly
swallow resolutions
line our stomachs with illusions
car engines sputtering
like these smoke filled dreams
mistletoes and colored lightbulbs
and the kiss of winter
fades into the memory
angels singing
lift me off the ground
yesterday is frozen in the revery
tomorrow is melting
let's raise our glasses
to these faintly falling ashes

    General CommentIt seems like he's saying that since it's the holidays and it's supposed to be a happy time, he's trying to put away all of his problems and frustrations that have built up in the past year.
