Staring At The Sun
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 going to get stickier too...
it's been a long hot summer
let's get undercover
don't try too hard to think... don't think at all

I'm not the only one starin' at the sun
afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
not just deaf and dumb I'm starin' 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 want to 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
those that can't do often have to teach

to the ones starin' at the sun
afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
not just deaf and dumb... starin' at the sun
I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind

intransigence is all around... military 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 I'm missing I left in the duty free
though you never really belonged to me

you're not the only one starin' at the sun
afraid of what you'd find if you stepped back inside
I'm not sucking my thumb I'm staring at the sun
not the only one who's happy to go blind
