Staring at the Sun


Lyrics

Summer stretching on the grass

Summer dresses pass

In the shade of a willow tree

Creeps a-crawling over me

Over me and over you

Stuck together with God's glue

It's gonna get stickier too

It's been a long hot summer

Let's get under cover

Don't try too hard to think

Don't think at all

I'm not the only one

Staring at the sun

Afraid of what you'd find

If you took a look inside

Not just deaf and dumb

I'm staring at the sun

Not the only one

Who's happy to go blind

There's an insect in your ear

If you scratch it won't disappear

It's gonna itch and burn and sting

Do you wanna see what the scratching brings!

Waves that leave me out of reach

Breaking on your back like a beach

Will we ever live in peace?

'Cause those that can't do often have to

And those that can't do often have to preach

To the ones staring at the sun

Afraid of what you'll find if you took a look inside

Not just deaf and dumb, staring at the sun

I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind

Intransigences all around

Military's still in town

Armour plated suits and ties

Daddy just won't say goodbye

Referee won't blow the whistle

God is good but will He listen?

I'm nearly great but there's something missing

I left it in the duty free

But you never really belonged to me

You're not the only one staring at the sun

Afraid of what you'd find if you stepped back inside

I'm not sucking on my thumb, staring at the sun

Not the only one who's happy to go blind
