Track Name: EnsionD & Rhyme Flow - Hearthbeat
Yes. There's consumerism here.
But there's a level of love in a numerous sphere.

You gotta dig beneath the corporate levels of entertainment.
And below all of the raiment is a meaningful statement -

You take this druidic paganistic element of celebration
tie it to a baby king of the Jewish Persuasion.

You get a whole craze sweeping the nation.
You getting families too impatient for their two week vacation.

Yeah, and if you're working then you're automated
into White Elephant, or Secret Santa obligated.

You probably hate it, cause your paycheck isn't big enough
for friends, family now co-workers, man it's frickin' tough.

But despite it all I still love it.
This appeal that I feel, I know I'm real lucky

Cause if you have others - in your life to bear it with.
Christmas can be corny but fun for those you share it with.

---

Carolers and they're singing in the streets and
Twinkling of the ornaments they're blinking on the tree, now
I don't mind the cold in the air
I got a pot of hot chocolate I'm hoping to share

It's the little things I like about it.
Family all around only time I don't mind it crowded.
Usually I'm a cynic
But when Christmas is here, it's the spirit I get in it.

---


Yup, I'm like a kid again, a citizen
of the North Pole, wrong gift? Throw a fit again

Sending my siblings all of my wishlists
Cruising down the Candy Cane Lanes is the business.

Home Alone on the tele.
And I got a gallon of eggnog up in my belly.

And it's silly but it's really true.
The holidays are jolly when you have others to feel it too.

I know that parking at the mall gets overloaded
But it's worth it when the smell of Cinnabon hits your noses

And it's cold when you're going for a tree, toes frozen
But looks like a miracle, when lit up in your home.

Whether secular or not, advertised or a sponsorship
Reason for the season goes beyond the conglomerate

It's about you, and your present company.
The memories you make are the presents if you're wondering.
Track Name: PhonicB∞m, Rhyme Flow, & Technickel Pony - The Christmas Heist
Verse 1:

1% of the world is too rich.
And of those 1% are crooks with cruel tricks.

And they use loopholes and tactics to mad profit.
It’s exactly why I’m standing up dammit, to now stop it.

The first mark is a pharmaceutical corp.
Who’s jacking up pill prices and keeping limited stores.

They in bed with heads for financial medical gains.
And they overcharge insurance to rack up premium claims.

So, call up my angry black hatters.
Let ‘em crack they knuckles why the crackin into the data.

And they’re gonna fiddle and meddle and move allocations
From their offshore holdings to our - settled location.

Christmas morning - they gonna get a bad call.
How their assets went from massive to tragically mad small.

Now you wondering how this song is festive
So stick around two more verses, and you’ll reap investment.

Verse 2:

Mark 2, a Non-Profit that’s frontin as a religion
They’ve been leechin off their faithful while runnin them like a prison.

And their “Fundraiser” for some rare illness in children
Pull in billions of dollars that’ll never get to fulfill them.

That ain’t right, in fact it’s a shame plight.
So our team goes ghost, so we can infiltrate night.

Finding files of evidence to pin their corruption
To flip this scheme you need means for disruption.

As such these tax shelters do help them function.
So if these go missing, they’re screwed. No assumptions.

Next day, it’s in-ternal eruptions.
The day after XMAS man, a malfunction-

Their billions of dollars of assets have vanished to dust.
While the media’s calling them saying they’ve managed to bust.

An anonymous gift to the rare illness has funding.
But the other half of that is enroute out of the country.

Bridge:

I never said I was a good man.
But yo we had a pretty good plan.

Those folks were runnin’ pretty lewd scams
You know we HAD to Robin Hood them.

And I ain’t never hurt a good fam.
But these pigs gettin’ cooked H.A.M.

About time someone took them.
We got the greedy gettin shook man.

Verse 3:

The 27th, I’m callin my man North.
Tell him “Nick, you got the transfer the one that you asked for?”

He starts laughing from his gut, it’s as jolly as hell
He’s like “I asked for a donation, what you gave us was well…

let’s say that every single boy and girl that lives on the planet
Regardless of race or creed, is getting gifted from Santa.”

I was like “Word, I’m just glad that you’d need it.
And this time next year I had plans to repeat it.”

Fast forward 12 months, I’m wakin up by the tree.
There’s a little wrapped box from Santa to me.

Open it up start to laugh, that punk he gave me coal.
With a note saying “Flowny you’re naughty because you stole”

Tossed the coal onto a pile i’ve been keeping for years.
Feel the friendship in the air, hearing tidings of cheer.

Call up Teddy and Phonic and say “Let’s suit up tonight.”
Now it’s tradition every year to run the XMAS DAY Heist.
Track Name: Silver Paradox & Intersekt - Starfall (feat. Itchigotchi)
We're going down in flames, but I'm keeping you alive.
Don't want to play this game, but I will if you survive.
I'll be the fuel to your fire, though its eating me up
If that is what you require, c'mon, fill up your cup.

Burn me and leave me as coals,
at least your glow will burn bright.
I know that I wont grow old
But maybe you'll last the night.

(But maybe you'll last the night)
Baby, you'll last the night.

So I'll struggle to convince you
Gotta keep your spark alight.
Wish upon my falling star;
I hope its worth the fight.
We're going down in flames, but I'm keeping you alive.
Don't want to play this game, but I will- if you survive.

Burn me, and leave me as coals.
Burn me, and leave me as coal.


We're goin' down in flames
But at least you'll know my name
As I save you from your mind games
But isn't it a shame
I'll be the one to blame
For helping you reclaim
Your lost dignity
So just leave me
That's the way it's supposed to be
I'm giving it my all, why can't you see
I wouldn't do this for just anypony
So see if you can't remember me

You don't gotta respond in kind
Cause I'm of the mind
That you'll find
That I crossed lines
That weren't mine to cross
but I turned blind eye
Just so I could see you fly

You'll thank me later
Right now you call me a dictator
But I'm dodging all the haters for ya
I'm comin' straight for ya
And soon
I'll be your liberator

I can't let your star fall
(Though the other lights die)
Cause I can't handle
(Losing my sunlight)

I can't let your star fall
(Though the other lights die)
Cause I can't handle
(Losing my sunlight)
Losing my sunlight
(Losing my sunlight, losing my sunlight)
Losing my sunlight

We're going down in flames, but I'm keeping you alive.
Don't want to play this game, but I will if you survive.
I'll be the fuel to your fire, though its eating me up
If that is what you require, c'mon, fill up your cup.

I can't let your star fall.
I can't let your star fall.

So I'll struggle to convince you
Gotta keep your spark alight.
Wish upon my falling star;
I hope its worth the fight.
We're going down in flames, but I'm keeping you alive.
Don't want to play this game, but I will- if you survive.
Track Name: Heather Feathersong & PegasYs - Mama Loves Christmas
The holidays are magical for reasons oh so clear
They bring that certain feeling worthwhile each year
Easter celebrating the spring
Halloween surprise and fun
Be thankful on Thanksgiving
And Valentine’s show your love

Each holiday Mama would remind us
For all the reasons we are loved.
But there’s one holiday she cherished above the rest
Mama, loves Christmas

Chorus
Mama loves Christmas for all the simple things
Decorations on the tree, stockings hung so carefully
The music and joy that it always brings
To us every christmas morn
Unwrapping presents by the tree
Mama loves christmas for all things big and small
But there’s one thing about christmas mama loves most of all
Christmas brings us together, no matter how far we roam
Mama loves Christmas
Cause it brings her children home.

As we continue to grow and build lives and families of our own.
Mama I hope you know we’ll always turn to you
For when we are down and unsure of ourselves
I know you’ll be there to cheer us on, like you always do

And I will always remember those magical years
The way you smiled when you told us Santa had been here
Nor will I ever forget what you’d say about every gift you’d get
“This is beautiful, I will always cherish it”.

I can never forget how much you loves us
Mama loves Christmas

Chorus
Mama loves Christmas for all the simple things
Decorations on the tree, stockings hung so carefully
The music and joy that it always brings
To us every christmas morn
Unwrapping presents by the tree
Mama loves christmas for all things big and small
But there’s one thing about christmas mama loves most of all
Christmas brings us together, no matter how far we roam
Mama loves Christmas
Cause it brings her children home.
Track Name: Francis Vace - Standing In The Snow
Standing in the snow,
throwing rocks at her window,
Hoping that there’s someone home,
The wind begins to sting,
My teeth are chattering,
Can she hear me down below?

It’s cold outside,
and the winter chills leaves you with nowhere to hide,
Her voice is getting thin,
And it’s warm inside so you should let her in,
Let her in


By the fireside,
you hear a rock collide,
and through the window a friendly face,
you fumble for your keys,
the cold wind makes you sneeze,
but at least now she’s warm and safe

It’s cold outside,
and the winter chills leaves you with nowhere to hide,
Her voice is getting thin,
And it’s warm inside so you should let her in,
Let her in
Track Name: Einarx - The Light (feat. Kutina)
we pass the hallways of the stars
never knows what is comin' on
we shoot for the moon, shoot for the moon
aim for your biggest desire

though the path on you
is all dark and misty so you can not see it through
just run for the light, run for the light
aim for your biggest desire

when fragments of the starlight drench your heart
(run for the light, run for the light)

when a voice of moon fills the hallways
(run for the light, run for the light)
Track Name: JackleApp - Winter (Shad0wMeister Remix)
I once saw you running from them what did they do to you
They turned you into a fool, but you are nobody's fool
They took something special from you, something you would not release
Shed your tears and let them freeze, shed your tears and let them freeze.
They don't know you like I know you all those ponies are the same
I swear I won't go away, I swear I won't go away

There's a girl that I know
Feathers as white as our winter's blanket of snow
But I know But I know
Her heart is longing for someone to call her own
But she's all alone, alone

Now the snow is getting heavy won't you please come back with me
Won't you please come back with me, won't you please come back with me.
Track Name: EnsionD & Rhyme Flow - Hearthbeat (Vahts Remix)
Yes. There's consumerism here.
But there's a level of love in a numerous sphere.

You gotta dig beneath the corporate levels of entertainment.
And below all of the raiment is a meaningful statement -

You take this druidic paganistic element of celebration
tie it to a baby king of the Jewish Persuasion.

You get a whole craze sweeping the nation.
You getting families too impatient for their two week vacation.

Yeah, and if you're working then you're automated
into White Elephant, or Secret Santa obligated.

You probably hate it, cause your paycheck isn't big enough
for friends, family now co-workers, man it's frickin' tough.

This appeal that I feel, I know I'm real lucky
