THROW A STONE Alex Vann

VERSE
Man takes a rock, to build himself a wall
He puts a barrier up, and lets nobody in at all
Man makes a fire, so that he can burn
Builds himself a big big gun, when will we ever learn?
To….
CHORUS
Throw a stone in the water
Throw a stone and watch it sink
Throw a stone in the water
Throwing a stone might help more than you think

VERSE
Man invents the wheel, so that he can drive
Digs himself a big long road – right through the countryside
Man makes a chip, to build the Big Machine
We no longer have to think, we no longer have to dream

CHORUS repeat

MIDDLE 8
We’ve got a knack, an uncanny little knack
Of taking a positive and making it a negative
We’ve got to try to put the balance back
And turn our world around

(solo)

CHORUS x2
Throwing a stone might help more than you
Throwing a stone might help more than you
Throwing a stone might help more than you think
Yeah Yeah Yeah
