[Am]Summer stretching [G]on the grass
[F]Summer dresses [Em]pass
[Am]In the shade of [G]willow tree
[F]Creeps are crawling [Em]over me
[Am]Over me and [G]over you
[F]Stuck together [Em]with Gods glue
[Am]It's gonna get [G]stickier too
[F]It's been a long hot summer
Let's get [G]under cover
Don't [F]try to hard to think don't think at [G]all
I'm not the only [C]one, staring at the [Am]sun
Afraid of what you'd [D]find if you took a look [G]inside
I'm not just deaf and [C]dumb
I'm staring at the [Am]sun
I'm not the only [D]one who's happy to go [G]blind
[Am] [G] [F] [Em]

[Am]There's and insect [G]in your ear,
[F]If you scratch it [Em]won't disappear
It's [Am]gonna itch and [G]burn and sting,
You [F]wanna see what the [Em]scratching brings
[Am]Waves that leave me [G]out of reach
[F]Breaking on your [Em]back like the beach
[Am]Will we ever[G] live in peace?
'Cause [F]those that can't do, [G]often have to
and [F]those that can't do [G]often have to preach
to the [C]ones, staring at the [Am]sun
afraid of what you'll [D]find
if you took a look [G]inside
not just deaf and [C]dumb...staring the [Am]sun
I'm not the only [D]one who'd rather go [G]blind
Riff (for the bridge)
