Sticks and Stones (©2011, Sam Salazar)

Stole my soul with a Polaroid
Lost my job to a dog
Left my soul in my traveling shoes
Oh my god, oh my god

The clothes I wore I won’t wear no more
Your red leaf mind your harvest moon
Take your change go buy a real nice suit
For your maker’s a-comin’ soon

Set my fields on fire
With your one black eye
Turn my river water black with your embrace
Let your clouds infect the skies

Sticks and stones
Blood and bones
May help me live
What would you give?

Walk on by
Y’ain’t here to stay
This ain’t home
Since yesterday

And from the minute that I saw you
Red suns danced behind your eyes
Stopped and stoned by your winter skin
Kicked in to yesterday by your lies

Kickin’ rocks to the riverbed
See the arrows in the sky
One’s pointed north, the other west
Don’t ever stop to wonder why

Just walk on by
Y’ain’t here to stay
This ain’t home
Since yesterday

I stepped to and from your clay
Studied the markings of my boot
Learned how to catch a meal lost how to love and how to feel
Learned how to steal and how to shoot

Chorus x2
