  • For the light sleeper, the street sweeper,
    Promise breaker, promise keeper,
    The astronaut, the acrobat,
    The underdog who is coming back
    Maybe you're hooked on phonics or Mary Jane
    Coca Cola or cocaine
    We're just a different kind of the same, yeah
    Sticks and stones can break you

    But words are medicine, words are medicine
    When I'm black and blue, I'm broken and bruised,
    I hear your voice again
    Words are medicine

    The beautician, the mortician,
    The blinded sided, the night vision,
    The baptized, the chicken fried,
    The rolled tide, the unforgiven

    For the girl who is lost in romance novels,
    The guy who sees through whiskey goggles
    We're just a different kind of the same, yeah
    Sticks and stones can break you

    But words are medicine, words are medicine
    When you're black and blue, you're broken and bruised,
    Just hear my voice again
    Words are medicine

    I do, I will
    I believe in you still
    I have a dream
    Imagine
    A shiny city on a hill
    I'm sorry, forgive me
    I love you
    I love you

    Words are medicine
    Words are medicine
    When you're black and blue, you're broken and bruised,
    Just hear my voice again

    Words are medicine
    Words are medicine
    When we're black and blue, we're broken and bruised,
    I hear your song, my friend
    Words are medicine
    Words are medicine
    Words are medicine
