about

Even seasonal baddies can go unplugged from time to time. I recorded this on a whim after discovering that I could in fact make an acoustic arrangement of this song for my online shows, which are generally as unplugged as I can make them.

lyrics

Out where the darkness lingers
Out where the cold wind blows
Someone dreadful waits his turn.

Better do better next year
If you're hoping for reindeer games
He's already got your number and your name

Teeth and claws and switches and chains
For the wicked kinder there is no escape
The feast of Krampus comes but once a year
It begins tonight. Krampus walks
And he will not be denied.

Some say he rises from below
But not from the hell that little angels know
Loki's grandchild comes by night.

Far more than an empty threat
Far worse than a lump of coal
If he hasn't found you yet, sit tight.

He'll skin you slowly or he'll swallow you whole*
Perhaps you'll get off easy, perhaps you won't.
Stinking breath and pointed tongue
It begins tonight. Krampus comes*
and he will not be denied.*

Ice and fire hunting,*
terror and regret*
No gentle ghost of Christmas past

Across the frozen mountains
Through the howling snow
I'm sure he'll save the worst for last
I'm sure he'll save the worst for last.

Teeth and claws and switches and chains*
For the wicked hearted there is no escape*
The feast of Krampus comes but once a year*
It begins tonight. Krampus walks
And he will not be denied.*
