lyrics

Beer and blue sunset
Hear planes overhead
It's Christmas time
In the suburbs
Bills keep rolling in
Paper cut my skin
It's Christmas time
In the suburbs

A million written promises
With good intent
Another resolution
But the money's all spent
I didn't mean to let you down
But all the pigeons came around
And now I just can't figure out
Where it all went

Cricket on TV
Work then go to sleep
It's Christmas time
In the suburbs
Screaming down the phone
The bank is so damn wrong
It's Christmas time
In the suburbs

And here they come to rip it out again
The cut is deeper every time they win
I didn't mean to let you down
But all the bastards came around
And now I just can't figure out
Where it all went

And all our expectations
Are lit up in coloured lights
And all the decorations
Just highlight all the fights
But on a warm December night
If we can push it all aside
We'll be alright
We'll be alright

Barbecue for tea
Chicken and salad feast
It's Christmas time
In the suburbs
The sweetest time
In the suburbs
