Staring at the sun

Intro: Am G F E Am G F E
 
Am                G             F               E
Summer stretching on the grass summer dresses pass
Am                 G          F                     E
In the shade of a willow tree creeps are crawling over me
Am           G         F             E
Over me and over you stuck together with God's glue
Am                    G
It's going to get stickier too
              F                              G
It's been a long hot summer... let's go undercover
       F                                     G
Don't try to hard to think... don't think at all

                C                    Am
I'm not the only one staring at the sun
                       D                     F
Afraid of what you'd find if you took a look inside
                  C                        Am
Not just deaf and dumb I'm staring at the sun
             D                       F
Not the only one who's happy to go blind

Am                   G             
There's an insect in your ear 
F                  E
If you scratch it won't disappear
     Am             G                    
It's gonna itch and burn and sting,
F                             E
Do you want to see what the scratching brings
Am                  G                  
Waves that leave me out of reach, 
F                E 
Breaking on your back like a beach
Am            G        
Will you ever live in peace ?
    F                G 
Cause those that can't do... often have to
     F                 G 
And those that can't do... often have to preach

        C                  Am
To the ones staring at the sun
                       D                      F
Afraid of what you'll find if you took a look inside
                   C                     Am
Not just deaf and dumb I'm staring at the sun
                  D                    F
I'm not the only one who'd rather go blind

Am                      G       F              G
Intransigence is all around military still in town
Am             G                   Am          G
Armour plated suits and ties daddy just won't say goodbye
F                         E            Am      G
Referee won't blow the whistle God is good but will He listen
Am              G                   F           Em
I'm nearly great but there's something I'm missing 
F                       G 
I left in the... duty free
F                     G 
You never really... belonged to me

C                 Am
You're not the only one staring at the sun
D                    F
Afraid of you'd find if you stepped back inside
C                   Am
I'm not sucking my thumb I'm staring at the sun
D                F
Not the only one who's happy to go blind
