12/26 Lyrics - Kimya Dawson

Review The Song (4)



one of her babies is rotting in the sun
and the other one was found drowned in the ocean
her mom and dad are in their van crushed and bloated
and her husband was thrown from his fishing boat
so please give me a break from all your complaining
about who was mean to you and how your stepdad is a pain
- i care, i swear, but i just can't take it, not today
all i can think about are tsunamis and earthquakes

everything she's ever known is gone, gone, gone
everyone she's ever loved is gone, gone, gone
the only reason she's alive is
she grabbed a palm frond and held on
and held on

you can call me crazy but it seems to me we could
have sent more than we spend in one day killing iraqis
to help the hundreds of thousands
sponsored links
who are injured and diseased
and hungry and homeless and without families
i'm appalled by our government's initial reaction
and the fact that they asked for a verbal retraction
from the folks who called them stingy
they're just covering their assets
well, they thank their greedy god for wiping out the lower class

everything she's ever known is gone, gone, gone
everyone she's ever loved is gone, gone, gone
the only reason she's alive is
she grabbed a palm frond and held on
and held on

one of her babies is rotting in the sun
and the other one was found drowned in the ocean
her mom and dad are in their van crushed and bloated
and her husband was thrown from his fishing boat

we'd have 12/26 tattooed across our foreheads
if something this atrocious happened on our coast instead
well, a tragedy's a tragedy no matter where it happens
close your eyes really tight and try to imagine
that everything you've ever known is gone
and everyone you've ever loved is gone
and the only reason you're alive is you were lucky
and you were strong enough to hold on
while you watched your family die
while you watched your family die
while you watched your family die
while you watched your family die

everything she's ever known is gone, gone, gone
everyone she's ever loved is gone, gone, gone
the only reason she's alive is
she grabbed a palm frond and held on
and held on

holy jesus who are these kids??? yeah i'm sure you feel so edgy and alternative listening to kimya instead of what all your fellow 6th graders listen to, but it makes all the difference if you actually /understand/ what you're listening to, and the message it's trying to convey. are you even old enough to remember what happened on the day this song is referring to?

seriously? | Reviewer: mike | 2/14/12

hanna montans alter ego???????????????? that is an insulting comment not only to her but to her fans as well. she is a mother, an artist, and a true example of what folk music is.

So true!!! | Reviewer: Fia | 5/3/09

I know, all those disney greeds just want money, without thinking what they're actually giving to those innocent children. I'm lucky to be one of the few 11 year olds that thinks that way!!! I really like this song cause it cheers me up when I'm upset about silly little things...

Kimya Dawson is awesome!! | Reviewer: Sierra | 1/20/08

Kimya Dawson is a-m-a-z-i-n-g! She is Hannah Montana's alter ego and I love that because if I have to see one more blond singing about how much she loves her ex-boyfriend I'm going to puke!
