Track Name: Mother Minneapolis
Lyrics:

Say what you want but I think we’ve got it good
It’s not a question of thinking that we should –
Somehow, be entitled to so much more
It’s where we’ve grown up and it’s all that I’ve asked for

Winters can be brutal and summers can feel like hell
But still we go outside, shrug our shoulders and say, “Oh well –
Maybe, next year she will show mercy.”
But we know that it’s just a formality

Someday we will all return to her

She can forgive us but let’s not force our hand
Where you’re from, take pride in where you stand –
This land of 10,000 bands
They all proclaim the same local command:

Someday we will all return to her
Track Name: I'm Spending Christmas In Skyrim
LYRICS:

The snow is falling down
The roads are getting plowed
And relatives are on their way here
I've got to find a place to hide
Got to make my presence disappear

Well, Christmas time is great
I got nothing against you Jesus
It's just that family interaction
I know where I'd much rather be
Just turning on my X-BOX 360

I'm spending Christmas in Skyrim
Winterhold looks lovely this time of year
I'm spending Christmas in Skyrim
Grandpa's just about to carve the Christmas skeever

I'll mount my trusty steed
Maybe go kill a giant
And use his toe in Christmas stuffing
I'll head on up to Solitude
And go caroling with the bards (maybe sing "Oh Tannenbaum")

And when it's late
I'll take some nirnroot
And hang it over the doorway
But there's no one there for me to kiss
I keep forgetting that this isn't Dragon Age

I'm spending Christmas in Skyrim
I hope Santa visits northern Tamriel
I'm spending Christmas in Skyrim
My exquisite dwarven boots make a great stocking

I'm spending Christmas in Skyrim
I'm gonna get plastered on a jug of nord mead
I'm spending Christmas in Skyrim
In Whiterun we can decorate the withering Gildergreen

I'm spending Christmas in Skyrim
Stringing up lights around Azura's shrine
I'm spending Christmas in Skyrim
Sky-rim!
