about

i turned into a christmas tree
Recorded in 2007

lyrics

the north star
shined so bright it blinded me
and I ran into a christmas tree
and it fell right on top of me
i stood up and my

arms were branches
hair was tinsel
and feet were presents with bows
now you know

my eyes turned christmas lights
fingers changes to ornaments
when i got scared all my pine needles fell out
and the kids shout

they said help him
my future it looked grim
go my whole life needing a trim
that's when one kid grabbed me by my limbs
and took me inside

cut off my branches
pulled off the tinsel
opened my presents as shoes
now they do

peeled off the christmas lights
broke off all the ornaments
now i could see the star
that blinded me when I got here
and they all cheered
