Sticks & Stones

STICKS & STONES

Well you can bring me through the dirt, baby.

I will show you how I survive.

Sticks and stones they can hurt, baby.

So will our goodbye.

 

Drown man in the water, baby.

Can we will him to revive?

Found him at the bottom, baby.

Maybe he's already died.

 

You push is chest, I'll pull his breath.

One, one thousand, two, one thousand, three, one thousand, four, one thousand, five

You push is chest, I'll pull his breath.

One, one thousand, two, one thousand, three, one thousand, four, one thousand, five

You push is chest, I'll pull his breath.

But then again, who are we to decide

If he stays alive?

 

Well you can bring me through the dirt, baby.

I will show you how I survive.

Words and thoughts they can hurt, baby.

So will our goodbye.

 

I conceived a baby, baby.

Like a pearl in the shell of my belly, baby.

May I guide her to survive.

May I guide her to survive.

 

Now its you who seek and its me who hide

One month, two months, three months, four months, five.

Now its you who seek and its me who hide

Five months, six months, seven months, eight months, nine

Now its you who seek and its me who hide

But then again, who are we to decide 

If she stays alive?

 

You can bring me through the dirt, baby.

I will show you how I survive.

You brought me through the dirt baby,

Watch me show you how I survive.

Sticks and stones they can hurt baby.

So will our goodbye.
