  • Tell me what I did
    To push you off the cliff
    You can try to take my hand
    But I’m not coming with you

    Say what you like
    Just look me in the eye
    You can pull out your knife
    It’s not as sharp as mine

    Oh, Sticks and stones
    Are never gonna break me
    Never gonna hurt me
    Never gonna shake me out
    I’m a rock at the top
    Never breaking
    Try what you want
    But you’re never gonna take me
    Down, down, down
    Try, try but you’re never gonna take me
    Down, down, down
    Give it up
    You should know by now

    I don’t want protection
    If it’s with conditions
    Took a new direction
    Losing all conviction

    Say what you like
    Just look me in the eye
    You can pull out your knife
    It’s not as sharp as mine

    Oh, Sticks and stones
    Are never gonna break me
    Never gonna hurt me
    Never gonna shake me out
    I’m a rock at the top
    Never breaking
    Try what you want
    But you're never gonna take me
    Down, down, down
    Try, try but you’re never gonna take me
    Down, down, down
    Give it up
    You should know by now

    Don’t you play the fool
    I know you want revenge
    There’s no use pretending
    I know what you did

    Oh, Sticks and stones
    Are never gonna break me
    Never gonna hurt me
    Never gonna shake me out
    I’m a rock at the top
    Never breaking
    Try what you want
    But you’re never gonna take me
    Down, down, down
    Try, try but you’re never gonna take me
    Down, down, down
    Give it up
    You should know by now

    Sticks and stones
    Are never gonna break me
    Never gonna hurt me
    Never gonna shake me out
    I’m a rock at the top
    Never breaking
    Try what you want
    But you’re never gonna take me
    Down, down, down
    Try, try but you’re never gonna take me
    Down, down, down
    Give it up
    You should know by now

    Give it up
    You should know by now
    Hey
    Hey
