about

A spiritual successor to "Couches" but instead it's a dramatization of a Christmas party.

lyrics

Children down in the living room
Children running through the halls.
I was locked here by myself
but I am not alone at all.

Broke down blockade in the hallway
Someone went up and tripped and fell,
one foot through the second floor boards
toe-tips touching the tops of hell.

Is this a party if I don't want a part of it?
This little heart of me does not endorse the thought of it
What does this heart see unrested, unaccompanied?
This little heart of me is steeped in tea and ennui.

Holi-decor on the wall hooks,
lights strung up on my last nerve.
Bitter lonesome through the year, looks
like I get what I deserve.

Is this a party if I don't want a part of it?
This little heart of me does not endorse the thought of it
What does this heart see unrested, unaccompanied?
This little heart of me is steeped in tea and ennui.
