lyrics

Your funeral incense smoke
Hangs overhead
Like a black umbrella
The siren song that the truth evokes
Lures me to a landscape of war-torn terror
What would I do
Without you
Shading me from the shinning light
Wander blindly burnt by the sun
Without a lovelorn specter to fight

No one knows how to drive in this town
Operators on the line dialed-in to run
you down
leave you without help

glassy icebound eyes echo hollow black sound
With red X's to market
Pale skin
draped in wet fabric
Crushed like a carpenter ant
into carpet
Nailed up on wood
Limbless in limbo
Speed through the traffic light
crash like a cymbal

No one knows how to drive in this town
Operators on the line disconnect and run
you down
leave you without help my friend
I see the light at the bitter end
I need you here to keep me in the dark
So I can continue to play pretend
When the fantasy dissolves
and the mystery is solved
Without all the lovely questions
All that's left are ugly answers

The friction I needed is gone

Black Umbrella take my hand
pull me with the wind
Umbrella if you fold
Open up again
Umbrella hold me close
Be my second
Be my second skin
Umbrella where you end
That's where I begin

The friction I needed is long gone
To Hell
Obsidian asphalt
Usher the new age
Will dawn
My black umbrella deflected the
freezing rain
From over my head
To right down in front of me

On this frozen road
I lost my grip
My heart sank down into my
Belly as my tires slipped

Nothing is cheap
when you have to pay the price
No road is safe
when it's covered in ice

That's when your handle on me broke
Gave up the chase
I let you go
Out of control
Time to take my turn
Sometimes you have to crash and burn

Drive heavy rain
flood this path I'm on
Sun-drenched I'll harden in the mud
Drive heavy rain
Break umbrella storm
Sometimes you have to come undone
