Words can be used to elevate
Words can be used to sink
Words can be used to stir up hate
When spoken or in ink

When stapled up correctly
Words can make a friend
Words can make an enemy
But that we won't pretend
When you wish, words can conquer
But they also can make peace
Words will alter the stories
You'll tell your nephef and your niece

Words can be used to flatter
Words can make a smile
Words can draw your future
Could keep your life in style

If you want to be bigger
It's easiest to use words
But one day you'll be deflated
You'll never fly with the birds
But if you speak correctly
You will be bigger now
But you have to meet your stories
The day when people ask you how

But it's all about the person
who's capable to speak
To use it to make miracles
Or to make people weak
The weapon that every man holds
