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
Itís gonna get stickier too.
Itís been a long hot summer
Let´s get under cover
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 take a look inside.
Not just deaf and dumb
Iím 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
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 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 in all around
Military´s 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, 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.
I´m not sucking my thumb, staring at the sun
Not the only one who´s happy to go blind.
