Track Name: Giovanni Almonte - Christmas Is (Intro)
Christmas...
Christmas is...
Christmas is what?...
Christmas is gifts
Christmas is everything I want and nothing I need
Christmas is the birth of greed
Little kids got that “gimme, gimme!” kind of twinkle in their eye
Cus commercials worked them up all year to buy the lie of happiness they sell
Those toys are broken before they come out the package
That spell is spoken to the eyes and ears of our children by experts,
That know the mind
Know it way better than you or I
So I don’t want to hear about your “spirit of Christmas, Mr. Mattel” cus I can’t afford it
And neither can my son
What have I done to this boy...
Nevermind my words, what do my actions say?
My mouth speaks peace and love for this world with a song
But my wallet give him stories of death and envy in HD
Now what is wrong with this 1080p picture?

Sony is not my sons father
Microsoft makes a terrible teacher
And I could tell YOU to try harder
But my hypocrisy makes me a crooked preacher so...
What is Christmas really?
What’s the gold underneath the rust?
Where’s the good love, good will and trust?
That humanity wants better for itself
That one day we can all measure our wealth not by who has the biggest tree
But by who gives the most without money
Would that be me?...
I hope so
I try
And in the meantime I’ll gift my people something they can’t buy
Track Name: Giovanni Almonte - Christmas Is
Hey I got you something good it’s...
Not the average kind of good it’s...
Might be boring, it’s not so gory, but it’s...true

I don’t know if you’re gonna to like it but
I put my heart in every part of this
Christmas gift it’s
For you only, so listen closely

Tonight we will give with our hearts and time
We will only be kind
We will only be right here
Tonight we will dance and we’ll sing our songs
We will come as we are
Cus real is better by far it is

Hey you there, I see you smiling I
Like how you look when you’re happy you’re
So much brighter
From inside out
You inspire me

You dance, I’ll cook, she’ll eat, he’ll look
Got all night, no fights
But if you do it’s alright
Cus we’re just family
With all our insanity
There’s no place I’d rather be

Tonight we will give with our hearts and time
We will only be kind
We will only be right here
Tonight we will dance and we’ll sing our songs
We will come as we are
Cus real is better by far it is...my gift to you is my heart

---------------------------------------

Thoughts of the moon
And getting there soon
Dreams beyond reach
Of what man can assume
Inside the infinite bounds of this room
Silence will teach me what science can groom
Expanding I branch past the cast that they say I am, I know I can. I know I am.

To dream my biggest dream
Is one of my favorite things
To see beyond our means
Gives meaning to my being here

Nature teaches by example
In every part a sample
Of the whole, a fractal
A piece if everything
The very thing we seek is not out there somewhere
But within the silence of our hearts
Where that good wisdom starts
Part of the sacred geometry
A universe of electricity
Not the empty space that my teachers preached
Energy within infinity
The atom that's in you and me
And the bomb that it could all be free
Immeasurable by a company
Now this would be
Definitely,
These are a few of my favorite things

Limits and flaws
Make all that's free cost
Make fools of our wise men and kings of the dogs
Make all that is God into dogma and law
Make believe that disease is a requisite loss
These are just some of their favorite things
