Sticks & Stones

by Mark Clifford, Junior McGee, Matt Hope, Nick Holmes

V1:
Sticks and stones, sticks and stones
They may break my bones
They may break my bones
And names cut through
Yeah names cut through
Do they hurt you too
Do they hurt you too

I’m one up on you, you’re one up on me
How do we play this game?
If I don’t kow-tow you will bring me down
Can’t you cope if we’re the same?

Chorus:
Everybody laughs, everybody jokes
Sometimes it’s too much for me
Do you know that the words we speak
Can be a self-fulfilling prophecy

V2:
Justice is blind, oh she is blind
But history remembers it well
Every curse uttered on this earth
Since the day when Adam fell

Words cut deep, oh so deep
Many wars were caused by the tongue
How can we ever live in peace
When our words are deaf, blind and dumb?

(chorus)

Bridge:
To bless or to curse is for us to decide
So what you wanna say
What you wanna say to me?

We’ll all give account of our words someday
So what you wanna say
So what you wanna say
So what you wanna say

(chorus x2)
