Lyrical Errors

Sticks and Stones

I feel so sure you'll say it's naive,
Oh so sure you'll say it's naive,
But it could be so very nice if I could write a song,
That could describe a way of life,
Make, create that way of life,
Free from grief and strife,
And neither right not wrong.

There's a reason for the sky to weep at night,
Red eyes for the sunrise,
The reason fills my heart with moral fright,
Sticks and stones will break my bones,
If only words would hurt me,
Sticks and stones will break my bones,
If only words would hurt me,
If "only words" could make some change,
Today my hope would never desert me.

If I could do most anything,
I'd like to teach the world to sing,
And turn this babble into something like a song,
You know we've done this thing before,
Peace was what we sought,
Was it the real thing?
No, we'd all been bought.

Take it like a man they say,
Take it gagged and blinded against the wall.

There's a reason for the surrender that's within us all,
Take it like a man they say,
Take it gagged and blinded against a wall.
