Under My Umbrella

Album: Morning View (2001)
  • When I close my eyes
    I can see for miles
    There's comfort in my dark seat
    And chaos in the aisles

    These eyes are not your eyes
    And these eyes are not the color that
    Your arid eyes might be
    No, I was not around
    When those eyes of yours decided so
    I refuse to kneel before the
    Sights you choose to see

    When I close my eyes
    I remember why I smile
    Under my umbrella
    I'm an accomplished exile

    These eyes are not your eyes
    And these eyes are not the color that
    Your arid eyes might be
    No, I was not around
    When those eyes of yours decided so
    I refuse to kneel before the sights you choose to see!

    If this is right, I'd rather be wrong
    If this is sight, I'd rather be blind

    These eyes are not your eyes
    And these eyes are not the color that
    Your arid eyes might be
    No, I was not around
    When those eyes of yours decided so
    I refuse to kneel before the sights you choose to see!

    If this is right, I'd rather be wrong
    If this is sight, I'd rather be blind Writer/s: ALEX KATUNICH, BRANDON BOYD, BRANDON CHARLES BOYD, CHRISTOPHER KILMORE, JOSE PASILLAS II, JOSE ANTHONY II PASILLAS, MICHAEL EINZIGER, MICHAEL AARON EINZIGER
