The Lyrics Are Below

 

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 staring at the sun

Afraid of what you'd find if you took a look 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

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

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

 

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

Though 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

Not sucking on my thumb - I'm staring at the sun

Not the only one who's happy to go blind
