This Year
So we're not coming home for Christmas this year There's just not much we can do I wish I could say everything is ok But that just wouldn't be true And I don't wanna lie, so I ain't gonna tell you What we've been doing to get through this spell So Mama don't worry And please shed no tears I promise we'll be home next year I still see everyone, we hang out on the phone Just drinkin' and carryin' on As we try to pretend we can all see the end And things will be back before long But their eyes tell the truths of the months they've been through And I just wanna see Dad and you So Mama don't worry And please shed no tears I promise we'll be home next year So we're not coming home for Christmas this year But Ma, Merry Christmas to you credits released May 5, 2021 Wes Landry-vocals, acoustic guitar Mike McFarlane-electric guitars Garrett Mason-bass Jordan Murphy-drums license all rights reservedmore

WWW (Whole Wide World)
The song WWW (Whole Wide World) is a confession of a person who lives on social networks, but through the "bubble of happiness" he sees the dirt, imperfection and hypocrisy of society. "Every fiend is a saint, and they teach us how to pray… In the whole wide world!" This composition is not about depression, but about the "mirror" that the author puts on human nature to expose all his vices unveiled and openly. And also to draw attention to the long-forgotten feelings and values ​​in our time. more
