"This Christmas (I'll Burn It To The Ground)" is a song created by the band Set It Off, released on the extended edition of their album Punk Goes Christmas. The song tells of a man that decides to ruin others neighborhood's Christmas after some neighbors tease him for never having a fun Christmas. To do this the man decides to sneak into all their houses to steal their presents and trees while disguising himself as a demonic Santa to burn them all in the center of the neighborhood.

Lyrics

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Fa la la la la, la la la la
'Tis the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Shut up! Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!

Oh my God, it's here, this awful time of year
How I hate the snow is falling
Wealthy neighbors bragging about the gifts they're getting

Hey, Jack! They say, let me take a guess now! You're getting K-Mart clothes again!
And then, I had a revelation!
This is my chance to sew their lips clean shut with fear

Because...

This Christmas I'll burn it to the ground!
This Christmas Santa's skipping town!
This Christmas everything will change, when they see the flames
This Christmas day!

Christmas lights alive, lighting up the night
Meanwhile I'm inside my room, conniving through the cheer and laughter that resumes

Tonight's the night, I have to do it right now
So, I will strike when all's asleep
And creep, sneaking through your chimney
Saint Nick is gone for now

Up on the housetop, gifts are mine
Kiss your Christmas tree goodbye

Because...

This Christmas I'll burn it to the ground!
This Christmas Santa's skipping town!
This Christmas everything will change, when they see the flames
This Christmas day!

Oh, make fun of me, will you?!
Well, I'll show you what true misery feels like!
You see, as my idol once said
Everything burns!
Hey, everyone! Look outside your window! I have a surprise for you!

Imagine this
One thousand gifts
And sixteen trees
All lay in a heap in a cul-de-sac
I strike my match, and I blaze the trail of gasoline

This Christmas
I'm ending the game
This Christmas
What a crying shame
This Christmas

Because...

This Christmas I'll burn it to the ground!
This Christmas Santa's skipping town!
This Christmas everything will change, when they see the flames
This Christmas day!
