about

Immediately following our move back to Arizona, we decided to make a short Holiday EP. We sat in our kitchen with one mic, a guitar, a mandolin, and a basket full of junk used for percussion sounds. We recorded everything and spent a few weeks patching it all together into the Lonely Exile Here EP. Happy Holidays everybody!

Track Name: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
God rest ye merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay;
Remember Christ your Savior
Was born on Christmas Day
To save you all from Satan's pow'r
When we were gone astray.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

From God our heavenly Father
A blessed angel came,
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same,
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

"Fear not, then," said the angel,
";Let nothing you afright;
This day is born a Savior
Of a pure virgin bright,
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan's power and might."
O tidings of comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.
Track Name: Green Grows the Holly
Green grows the holly
And so does the ivy
Though the winter winds blow never so high
Green grows the holly

Gay are the flowers
Hedgerows and the ploughhands
The days grow long, long in the sun
So fall the showers

Full gold the harvest
And grain for your labor
With God must work for daily bread
Or else man will starve

Fast fall the shed leaves
Russet and yellow
But resting buds are smug and safe
Where swung the dead leaves

Green grows the holly
And so does the ivy
The God of life can never die
And hope says the holly
Track Name: Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel
O come, oh come Emmanuel
and ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
until the son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, O come, Thou Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai's height,
In ancient times did'st give the Law,
In cloud, and majesty and awe
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel
Track Name: Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming
Lo, how a rose e’er blooming,
From tender stem hath sprung.
Of Jesse’s lineage coming,
As men of old have sung;
It came, a flow’ret bright,
Amid the cold of winter,
When half spent was the night.

Isaiah ’twas foretold it,
The Rose I have in mind,
With Mary we behold it,
The virgin mother kind;
To show God’s love a right,
She bore to us a Savior,
When half spent was the night.

O Flower, whose fragrance tender
With sweetness fills the air,
Dispel with glorious splendor
The darkness everywhere;
True man, yet very God,
From Sin and death now save us,
And share our every load.
