"Sticks & Stones" as written by and Jamie Scott Patrick Richard Mascall....
Shot down by your bullets
They shatter my faith and my bones
If you listen, the words, they hurt, they creep
Right under my skin, they cut so deep.

Oh woah, can't you understand
I don't want battles, battles, battles
And if you lay them in my hand
I won't fight battles, battles, battles
Tell me why we work so hard to break these bones
Can we try to lay down
These sticks and stones
Sticks and stones.

We crash and fall together, so sad
We don't remember
Why we're tearing us apart
But I can feel the cracks, the cracks in my heart.

Oh woah, can't you understand
I don't want battles, battles, battles
And if you lay them in my hand
I won't fight battles, battles, battles
Tell me why we work so hard to break these bones
Can we try to lay down
These sticks and stones
Sticks and stones.

It doesn't have to be so hard to surrender
When we've got nothing left, nothing left to lose.

Can't you understand
I don't want battles, battles, battles
And if you lay them in my hand
I won't fight battles, battles, battles
Tell me why we work so hard to break these bones
Can we try to lay down
These sticks and stones
Sticks and stones
Sticks and stones.
