Santa Claus by Abraham Cloud
Christmas is such a warm , friendly , loving time for most, its really no surprise that Abraham Cloud would be looking at its sinister side. That Big Red Jolly guy named Santa seems to carry some deeper and devious motives in this song. Mr Cloud starts off by announcing, “I’ve got every disease known to man waiting patiently inside me, to surprise me when I least expect it.” Which is a pretty startling and freeing realization in and of itself. But nothing compared to the iconic visitor who shows up live and in person, “Love everyone, Santa Claus said, As he perched naked on my bed. Love everyone and you’ll be free, but first you gotta love me.” That Jolly Old pagan not only climbed in through the fireplace but is now, instead of leaving gifts, bartering for love or sex or something. Not completely sure of the meaning here but it seems to run deep. Abe sings , “I ain’t go no one to love. ” and then Santa appears as a vision of love. Santa Claus , is tipically every child’s perfect picture of God. All knowing , all giving , all justice and all love. So how does this pure light of love turn into a conniving , commercialized loan shark , making a deal instead of giving. Is it the corruption of spirit, the loss of soul or perhaps Cloud watches too much news.
