When I Throw Stones
                   By John Flynn

Itís hard to admit you choose injury over persuasion
Forgetting the rule you were taught so well when you were young
To treat folks the way that you wish theyíd treat you
Lately Iíve found that much harder to do
Cause anger that grinds down my heart seems to sharpen my tongue

When I throw stones where those stones fall
Piles of stones become stone walls
I must tear down the walls that have grown
The walls that I build when I throw stones

When did theses names and these labels become so important?
Why do we place folks in boxes for what they believe?
And just exactly when did I stop seeing
people as people and humans as being
entitled to their own opinions; though I disagree...

When I throw stones where those stones fall
Piles of stones become stone walls
I must tear down the walls that have grown
The walls that I build when I throw stones

I will continue to stand up for what I believe in
I will continue to tell truth no matter the cost
But I will remember the arrogant blindness
afflicting those who speak their truth without kindness
And will remember the battles Iíve already lost

When I throw stones where those stones fall
Piles of stones become stone walls
I must tear down the walls that have grown
The walls that I build when I throw stones
