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 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

You're not the only one, staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find, if you stepped back inside
Not just deaf and dumb, 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 going to itch and burn and sting
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
No those that can't do, often have to preach

To the one, staring at the sun
Afraid of what you'd find, if you stepped back inside
Not just deaf and dumb, staring at the sun
I'm not the only one, who's happy to 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 missing
I left it in the duty free, oh superb
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
I'm not the only one, who's happy to go blind

Happy to go blind, happy to go blind, happy to go blind
I'm happy to go, happy to go, happy to go blind
Happy to go blind, happy to go blind
I'm happy to go, happy to go, happy to go blind
