Once a year our city lies in wait for the season's visitations
Part of a tradition which unites all of the Earthly nations
Something's in the sky
Are we all gonna die?

Seems like every year the world is ending just in time for Christmas
Conquerors descending from above for all the world to witness
Listen, do you hear?
The time is drawing near

The cloister bell is ringing out
The engine's bellows wheeze
The ship is standing proud against
The biting winter breeze
And ordinary humans get to watch it all on our TVs

Every year we hope that we will get to have our celebrations
Every year we hope to see those atmospheric excitations

Gather all awaiting the arrival of the Earth's defender
Gather every human being who's not ready to surrender
Bring the season's joy
The kind you can't destroy

The cloister bell is ringing out
It echoes in our ears
It rings today and it will
Ring on through the years
A sound that chases all our doubts and fears away
Happy Holiday to you!
