or
Arlissa

Shot down, by your bullets
They shatter, my faith and my bones
If you would listen, your words they hurt
They creep right under my skin
They cut so deep, oh

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
Oh 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

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
Oh tell me why
We work so hard to break these bones
Can we try,
To lay down
These sticks and stones,
Sticks and stones, 

Why does it have to be so hard just surrender
When we got nothing left, nothing left to loose
Ooh

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
Oh 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.
