Ride Your Bike - Sticks And Stones

from Sampler 8: Bonfire Of Trust by Deep Elm Records (Various)



From the album "Bad News From The Bar" (www.deepelm.com/468)


When Day peeks his head from the blanket. And the numbers blur on the clock. He gets up and says, It's Time to shine again. And even when the clouds shroud and thunder. He tries his best to yell back and slap from slumber. They're just numbers. They're just words. Just symbols. And they hurt. They're just sticks and stones. Buried in the Earth. They're just sticks and stones. But they break our bones. You're just sticks and stones. While the oyster takes sand. And makes pearls. It plants a speck of doubt. All I can make is sound. How am I to take a speck of something fake? And spit long sentences out. How am I to feel when they stay in their shell? Until it's time to spit the masterpiece out of their mouths. When night peeks her head from the coffin. And spreads her wings to block the sun. She gets up and says, It's time to fly again. And even when the stars shine bright. She blinds even the keenest eye. They're just sticks and stones. But they broke our bones. It will start like it ended. With a bang
