Thoughts on Songs with Beck

I always thought it was talking about a funeral procession. The 2 white horses pulling a horse-drawn hearse. And the subject can't focus on anything else because he's in mourning. I used to have my own tricked out white hearse and it was called "The Farewell Ride" and I used to play this in it all the times I'd show it.
