"Sticks and Stones" as written by Allison Margaret Pierce, Catherine Eleanor Pierce and Roger Greenawalt....
Hey, domino
I am stopping you from falling
One, two, three
Don't you dare go down

Hey, waterfall
Oh, can you hear me calling?
Three, two, one
Don't you dare touch the ground

I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want

Sticks and stones will break your bones
And leave you lying in the mud
But you get scared when we're alone
Like I might suck your blood

And I could tell you a witch's spell
But it just might blow your top
And you start to run just as I'm having fun
And it's awfully hard to stop
It's awfully hard to stop

Sun in the sky
I am stopping you from burning
All we need
Is stars and moon

Clock on the wall
I will keep your hands from turning
Or this night
Will end too soon

I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want

Sticks and stones will break your bones
And leave you lying in the mud
But you get scared when we're alone
Like I might suck your blood

And I could tell you a witch's spell
But it just might blow your top
And you start to run just as I'm having fun
And it's awfully hard to stop
It's awfully hard to stop
It's just too hard to stop

I call thee, beloved one
To love me more than anyone
Seven times I pierce my heart
And now you feel the magic start

Bind thy heart and soul to me
As I do will
So let it be, oh

Hey, loverboy
Oh, now do you believe me?
That's not all
That I can do

Sit back down
I'm afraid we won't be leaving
Can't undo
My spell on you

I'm the one you want (I'm the one you want)
I'm the one you want (I'm the one you want)
I'm the one you want (I'm the one you want)
I'm the one you want (I'm the one you want)

I'm the one you want (I'm the one you want)
I'm the one you want (I'm the one you want)
I'm the one you want (I'm the one you want)
I'm the one you want

Sticks and stones will break your bones
And leave you lying in the mud
But you get scared when we're alone
Like I might suck your blood

And I could tell you a witch's spell
But you just might blow your top
And you start to run just as I'm having fun
And it's awfully hard to stop

Well, sticks and stones will break your bones
And leave you lying in the mud
But you get scared when we're alone
Like I might suck your blood

And I could tell you a witch's spell
But you just might blow your top
And you start to run just as I'm having fun
And it's awfully hard to stop
It's awfully hard to stop
It's just too hard to stop
I don't think I can stop

    General CommentThis song makes me think that they (the person whose point of view the song is sung from) are someone who practices witchcraft, and a lot of the song is something of a spell they're casting on someone to make them love them, hence the repeated rhyming, references to witches and magic, and the repetition of the line "I'm the one you want".

    General CommentI don't know if they were thinking about vampires when they originally wrote this, but the video is definitely about vampires. Pretty sick song/video.

    General CommentFor what it's worth, the spoken part in the middle that starts "I call thee, beloved one," is more or less taken from the so-called Venus Love Spell. The "actual spell" goes more or less like this, from what I can find:

    I call thee, beloved one
    to love me more than anyone
    seven times I pierce thy heart
    today the magic of Venus starts
    I bind thy heart and soul to me
    as I do will, so let it be
