What a nice first night of Hanukkah surprise – the next song off of “The Snake King”: The debut of a lyric video of “Santa is an Anagram.”
This popped up on Twitter tonight:
This song deals with something that has always intrigued me ever since I was a kid. And yes, its supposed to be tongue in cheek. It’s a bit of humor following a particularly dark song on my new album The Snake King. Sing this song while Christmas caroling!https://t.co/tU4U4PyeCe

It sounds like the song was written by his Supernatural character channeling Chuck Berry and the lyrics reveal his dark sense of humor. The lyric video is fun to watch and it’s good to know there’s some humor, albeit dark, on the new CD, mixed in with songs with titles like “Suicide Manifesto” and “Blues for the Disillusioned.”
Definitely will be interesting to see what the rest of “The Snake King” is like!
