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 would 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 but 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 I'm staring at the sun, not the only one Who's happy to go blind
