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 Gods glue
Its gonna get stickier too.
Its been a long hot summer
Lets get under cover
Dont try too hard to think
Dont think at all.
Im not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what youd find
If you take a look inside.
Not just deaf and dumb
Im staring at the sun
Not the only one
Whos happy to go blind.
Theres an insect in your ear
If you scratch it wont disappear.
Its 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 cant do often have to
And those that cant do often have to preach
To the ones staring at the sun
Afraid of what youll find if you took a look inside.
Not just deaf and dumb, staring at the sun
Im not the only one whod rather go blind.
Intransigence in all around
Militarys still in town
Armour plated suits and ties
Daddy just wont say goodbye
Referee wont blow the whistle.
God is good but will he listen?
Im nearly great but theres something missing.
I left it in the duty free,
Oh, though you never really belonged to me.
Youre not the only one staring at the sun
Afraid of what youd find if you stepped back inside.
Im not sucking my thumb, staring at the sun
Not the only one whos happy to go blind.
