Umbrella Nation

How many more fires would it take to turn the tables round?
Noone's blindfolded you, but you block out the sound,
Are you one with your people or is it you and your men,
You talk of getting dirty, but there's no dirt on your hands,
Your so self-absorbed and so removed, you're doing fine,
And you'll sleep sound tonight,
As long as your hologram's there to take what there is out there,
It's not a question of whether or not you care, it's what you care,
About....

I want a spot under your umbrella, don't want to feel the rain coming down,
But there's a leak in your umbrella, and we're all going to drown,

Well, the TV's on and you're in your office making paper planes,
But it's you on the screen telling everybody it's okay,
You smoke out the chaos, but they're gasping for air,
Your smile's got a crack in it, you laugh when they're scared,
And dear Mr.leader, are there things that you're keeping to yourself?
All secrets leak and corrode all our hopes, til there's nothing left,
For you to hide behind...

We want some shade under your umbrella, don't want to feel the heat bearing down,
But there are holes in your umbrella, and we're all burning out,

Under the impression that we have a grasp, we have control,
We debate, we analyze, we decide, it's you we vote,
Yet your run's almost done, and you've stacked no victories,
Just a stutter and some false starts, and some overgrown fallacies,

And the weather outside is nasty, it looks like a storm,
Will you be with us? Or inside keeping yourself warm?

I want a spot under your umbrella, don't want to feel the rain coming down,
But there's a leak in your umbrella, and we're all going to drown,
We want some shade under your umbrella, don't want to feel the heat bearing down,
But there are holes in your umbrella, and we're all burning out,

And when the storm is over and this day is done,
Who's really lost and who's really won?
