Track Name: It's A Wonderful Life (Gonna Have A Good Time)
The ice was freezin'
My brother almost drowned
I jumped in to save him
On his way, way down
Then it went black and I went in

Oh, what a wonderful life
The angels told me he'd get his wish
All my life was a twisted thing

We gonna have a good life
We gonna have a good life
We gonna have a good life
We gonna have a good life

You better keep on pushin'
No matter how broke you are
'Cause I'm broke down and I'm bankrupt
And you're ready to end it all
We gonna have a good time
Rockin' now to this beat

Just keep rockin' to scoop the pain
Oh, my God, here comes the pain

Angel made me numb
The angel made me void
Got thrown out of the bar
Then I wrecked my car
Got socked in the jaw
Cussed out by my mama
Someone stole my money
Screamed at by my honey
Things was gettin' worse
Things was gettin' worse
Things was gettin' worse
Things was gettin' worse

We gonna have a good life
We gonna have a good life
We gonna have a good life
We gonna have a good life

Come on y'all, let's boogie some more
My brains just hit the floor

We gonna have a good life
We gonna have a good life
We gonna have a good life
We gonna have a good life

It's a wonderful life
It's a great life
It's a wonderful life
It's a great life
It's so wonderful
It's fabulous
Oh, what a life !
Oh, what a life !
Lord, Lord, what a life
What a life, man, It's a great, great life
Oh, I can't stand it, I can't stand this life
Take me away, take me, take me
Take me now, take me home
It's a wonderful life, I'm going home
Send me, to my great, great, great, GREAT life
My wonderful, wonderful life
Track Name: Slick Nick, You Devil You
Slick Nick stole a reindeer from the Zoo
Fell down my chimney with a keg of brew
Put my dog out in the cold
Ripped off the candy from my socks
Smokin' cloves and drinkin' Scotch

Slick Nick you devil you
(Devil you, devil you)
Slick Nick you devil you
(Devil you, devil you)

Dressed in red and overweight boot
Stole the TV and the stereo
And the toys
The toys were broken too

You devil you
Slick Nick you devil you

I saw Slick Nick fall over the X-mas tree
He was a Whole different man from
What mom and dad told me
Spillin' Jack Daniels all over the drapes
Spray-painting a bad finger over the fireplace
Tatoos on his arms and knees
I never thought Santa Claus Would be such a sleaze ! But...

Slick Nick you devil you...

Cussin' and coughin' and playin' punk-rock
And every once in a while you'd just scratch your jock
Hey ! Slick Nick, where are my toys ?
You went drinking with the boys
You put Mad Dog in my sock
I wanted candy
I wanted candy
I wanted CANDY!
Oh, Oh ! I thought you were my buddy and chum
But you're just a downtown bum
Instead of putting presents in front of my eyes
You just told me a bunch of lies...

Slick Nick you devil you...
Santa Claus... Huh !
Track Name: Iration
Aimlessly I walk the streets alone
My eyes are tearful to the world around
They have forgotten the joy of which it is to be kind
They need your guidance for they are blind

(So long)
So long since they've heard your word
(So long)
So long since they've felt your hand
(So long)
So long since they seeked your love
And their faces are twisted with the pain of living
Their faces are twisted with the pain of living

Teacher, teacher please understand
Your stoic position won't save the land
Although your job may seem miniscule
Please guide the future so the good may rule
Pastor, pastor on TV you teach
Destroy the Lefties is the sermon you preach
Destroy the Commies with a pen and a sword
Forget to tell the glory of the savior's word

(So long)
So long have they heard your lies
(So long)
So long have they been mislead
(So long)
So long have they been confused
And their faces are twisted with the pain of living
Their faces are twisted with the pain of living

Listen now as I say unto to you
There is a love that will always be true
Even in this abyss of sin
He is-a buried alive in the hearts of men
That's why I say...

Iration!

Jubilation!

We have the foundation
For a sovereign nation
And its ruled by love
Jesus Christ from above
And the road to Zion is the one he leads
The road to Zion is the path he leads

Iration!

Jubilation!

We have the foundation
For a sovereign nation
And its ruled by love
Jesus Christ from above
And the road to Zion is the one he leads
The road to Zion is the path he leads
The road to Zion is the one he leads
The road to Zion is the path he leads
The road to Zion is the one he leads
The road to Zion is the path he leads
The road to Zion is the one he leads
The road to Zion is the path he leads
The road to Zion is the one he leads
The road to Zion is the path he leads
The ro-oad
