lyrics

Open umbrella
Moves like a mop through the ink
Like an on fire
Shoulder-length wig in the sink

Like the red sun as it
Sank to the mud only yesterday
The day before today

Ivory titanic
Like a white ship through the ice
Like a gigantic cat
In a room full of mice

Serpent of flame on the
Hindenburg hanging up
On display
Burning like the sting of the
Stingray

Darkening darkness submarine light
Fire hose colossus mountain of white
Twisting around around in the sound
As one swims up another floats down
20,000 down
Broken umbrella sinks in a cloud to the ground
Caught in a bottomless dream of the sea while
The stones stay
Where all the bones will lay
A day after today
The day after the sting of the stingray
