Summer stretching on the grass Summer dresses pass In the shade of the willow tree Creeps are crawling over me Over me and over you Stuck together with gods glue It's gonna' get stickier, too It's been a long, hot summer Lets get undercover Don't try to 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 I'm 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 gonna 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 And those that can't do Often have to preach
To the ones 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 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 missing
I left it in the duty free yeah But you never really belonged to me
You're not the only one Staring at the sun Afraid of what you'd find You step back inside Not sucking on my thumb I'm staring at the sun I'm not the only one Who's happy to go blind...
