about

With Christmas fast approaching, a bunch of us have teamed up to concoct a festive song entitled ‘Wake Up’ which was released as part of an EP on December 1st.

Wake Up features Colin Tench (Corvus Stone), Gareth Cole (Mike Kershaw, Tom Slatter), Ben Bell (Patchwork Cacophony, Gandalf’s Fist), Stefan Hepe (Gandalf’s Fist), Peter Falconer, Pat Sanders and Manu Michael (Drifting Sun).

The song was mixed and mastered by Jon Huxtable at Smallfish Studios, Scotland.

Also included in the EP are 7 songs previously recorded by the musicians who contributed to the making of ‘Wake Up’.

All the profits from the sales will go to TIERHILFE SAUERLAND E. V.

Barbara Hellekes, CEO of the animal welfare organisation said "We're over the moon about this! Winter is coming, and it's really hard to get the poor souls through the winter, especially in Hungary and Greece, where we support and help privately organised shelters in keeping the streets free of stray dogs, trying to find them a forever home"

We, Shits 'n Giggles, take this opportunity to thank everyone who has taken up their valuable time to bring their contribution to this EP to help make this release possible, and we hope that the charity organization we have chosen will benefit greatly from the generosity of the people who donate to their cause, cheers everyone and Merry Christmas to all!

Track Name: Shits'N'Giggles - Wake Up
Dead of night
By moonlight
Heard a sound
What could it be?

Tinkling bells
Casting spells
All look up
What do you see?

Wake up
Wake up
For Christmas day is here
Wake up
And share the love and laughter through the year

Flying high
He passes by
There’s magic in the air
On his sleigh
For Christmas Day
With love enough to share

Wake up
Wake up
For Christmas day is here
Wake up
And share the love and laughter through the year

Krampus comes to
Sound of drums
And dances in the street
If you’re bad he’ll
Cackle glad
And drag you by your feet

Wake up
Wake up
For Christmas day is here
Wake up
And share the love and laughter through the year

We have plenty
Four and twenty
Blackbirds in a pie
But some are homeless,
Cold, alone,
Let’s help the poorer guy

Wake up
Wake up
For Christmas day is here
Wake up
And share the love and laughter through the year

All your love
All your hope
All your dreams
Make them come true

Share the love
Share the hope
Share your dreams
Carry them through

Those who fall
Those who cry
Those who need
Give them your love

You will find
If you try
Love returns
Ev-e-ry time


Krampus preys
On those who stray
And those who cannot see
Guard your wealth
And lose your health
To hate and jealousy

Rich and greedy
Poor and needy
This should never be
Sister, brother
Help each other
Love and light to see

Wake up
Wake up
For Christmas day is here
Wake up
And share the love and laughter through the year

Krampus preys
On those who stray
And those who cannot see
Guard your wealth
And lose your health
To hate and jealousy

Rich and greedy
Poor and needy
This should never be
Sister, brother
Help each other
Love and light to see

Wake up
Wake up
For Christmas day is here
Wake up
And share the love and laughter through the year

Rich and greedy
Poor and needy
This should never be
Sister, brother
Help each other
Love and light to see

Wake up
Wake up
For Christmas day is here
Wake up
And share the love and laughter through the year
Track Name: Peter Falconer - Johnny Got A Toy
Johnny got a toy for Christmas
He got it from his uncle Bryan, and it’s driving me mad.

It’s all flashing lights and shiny things
Wheels and a pair of wings

But that’s not all
There’s a big red button on the top that he won’t stop pressing.

And every time he presses it goes…

Johnny got a toy!

Johnny got a toy for Christmas
And if I get a hold of Bryan
I’m going to shove it right up his
Chimney.

It’s alright for him, he’s away this year
And he doesn’t have to listen to this.

But when he has his own kids
They’ll get a gizmo with a button of red-
A cacophony to waken the dead!

Johnny got a toy!

Come all ye faithful
(Hide the batteries!)
We’ll be triumphant
(Bryan’s gonna die!)
Revenge is a dish best served LOUD!

Johnny got a toy!
Track Name: Gandalf's Fist - Eve's Song
Startled little starling on your own
You flew the nest too early now you're lost far from home
Stared into this daydream from afar
Now you Gaze into the nothing with a stranger in the dark

Speak to me in whispers one more time
You feel the lamps are burning, are they embers in your mind?
Navigate the mystery of who you are
you stopped the wheel from turning but it splintered in your heart

Light the night
Burn the grey
evening song today.

(You were) Shadowborn
hide the light from your eyes
only see what you will
Shadowborn
and the night will disguise
and the time will lead you astray

Watcher in the distance; do you pray
Do you gaze at candles burning; watch the night turn into day?
And can you hear the songbird in the cage?
Can you lift away the velvet; let the dawn creep in again?

What you felt was in you all along,
can you lift yourself from falling? can you hear my love song?
Standing in the future, will we soon,
say that "that's the night forgotten?"
"That's the night that we once knew"

Open wide your arms, let the breeze blow through your hair
Hold it in your heart, let it save you, save you
Reaching out tonight well I thought I heard you there
Coming back in time, let it take you, take you

Take me by the hand can you feel the current flow
I can feel your heart, hear it beating, heating
Secrets in your mind yet I thought I let them go
Holding it inside; healing, healing!
Track Name: Drifting Sun - Soldiers
When night follows day, I hear the calling, calling, to go
This twilight alone, it sees me falling, falling, and slow.
Shine it aloud, moonlight in the day, shine it aloud, shadows in the neverwhere
The sun in the night, the storms are raging, raging

Soldiers on the mountainside appear, they come for me
A smile across my lips and waiting for it all to end
And ever closer there's a line, I must not cross
A smile across my lips and waiting for soldiers' release
And ever closer to the edge, I bear this cross
They must be coming for me
They fade away
Come back to me, come back to me, come back to me!

Shine it aloud, and the light that casts a shadow will be gone
Shine it aloud, and the light that casts the shadow will be gone

Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight
Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight
Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight

Violet light be comes the horizon
so distant to me now
Listen to me now
Scarlet light is covering
Every one
Never seen before
Listen to me now
Blackest light is seen by the
Sick and the
Weakest of us all
Listen to me now
Hope flies on an open wing
Shine it loud

Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight
Fly on open wings and lie in open arms and sleep tonight

Sun and the moon collide
The dusk and dawn the night the morn.
Sun and the moon collide
When hope dissolves the light be gone.

See, facing you, facing me, all you see, of me
Nothing that you look for
See inside my eyes
Look in my soul. So much poverty, clearly
Riches on my face

Sun and the moon collide
The dusk and dawn the night the morn.
Sun and the moon collide
When hope dissolves the light be gone.

I can’t go on.
It’s all so gone.
The sun, the moon, the light, the dark,
the dawn, the night, the twilight, is gone.
All so gone.
All so gone.

But maybe…
Maybe…
Track Name: Patchwork Cacophony - Brand New Day
I feel the years have passed me by,
I don't know how, and I don't know why,
There were so many things to be,
Still I'm just me.

And the dreams I had, did they fade away?
Did I save them all for a rainy day?
I feel my dreams have passed me by.

I feel the moment's come and gone,
I missed my chance, guess I musta-took too long,
I feel there's nothing left to do,
But count my days.

And the dreams I had, did they fade away?
Did I save them all for a rainy day that never came?

I thought I'd be something more,
I could have been so much more,
And the dreams I had, did they fade away?
Did I save them all for a rainy day?
And I feel my life's passed me by,
Did all my dreams fade and die?

Wake up, smell the morning air,
Summer's gone but the autumn weather's fair,
There's still time,
Stop worrying about your yesterdays,
Now it's a Brand New Day.

Hurry up, there's so much more to see,
Live every moment while you can,
Be your dreams,
Don't dream of what you could have been,
Now's your chance — take it.
It's a Brand New Day.
