9/8/2000 alternate lyrics

lost and maybe
i'm troubled more than you
often crazy
well there's nothing i can do
lean on me if you must
but i might not stand up
i got the backbone of a dead man since
fondness has been gone

hopeless as your love

all too lively one
holes right through his knees
i swear if he's changed much
it's good enough for him
oh no don't you believe him
there's more always to get
steal hard on the dreams of those
harboring weariness to live

bought then tossed away
read oh i've got no place in my way
fall then tossed away
dreams if they play the dreams down

oh oh lay here
all the love to go around, round
mother says you'll get there and
the father says keep your head tied down
mother pour the wondering
so lonely to the cover and the lie
come now leave her
nothing i would do
nothing but this my point of view

girl will you
all she say is what
a texas little girl
she like it hot oh spicy too
it runs her mouth raw
same as red that she wore
i feel like i'm in space
should have kept my fingers off that
that angel's little face

the angel's little face

oh cry to me blood
but kiss me if you're lost
oh while you're strong i play
and roll me down to trust
stranger gape all and walk lie
rope is on her neck
gonna jump off the chair she grew up on
so memories won't obsess

bought then tossed away
oh girl she seems forget the dream again
bought then tossed away
real grand the cemetaries

roll while she's changing
her sister says she's allowed, allowed, allowed
body's on the mantle her father scream
you keep your head down, down, down
oh wanna lay here
oh love you got your innocense all gone
man away here
this song i do is what she hope is my point of view

oh walk out tall
i won't be next to you
strong man it later
she kissed you and she flew
oh no not just for me
i pay and it be done
all innocense aside from here
the money hasn't done

bought then tossed away
oh innocense betrayed again and again
bought then tossed away
read between her tears the rain

oh oh lay here
sister says she worked around, round
mother said go look for him
her father say please don't head down, down, down
follow in her heaven
all i did you all i did all i did was beg
i said deeper won't you give her
they want to see but oh
nothing more than my point of view
Raven
main lyrics
"What you got? what you got in your hand?" father said to son
"I got the whole world here, Daddy, 'tween my fingers and my thumb
"will you take care of it, please? it's the only one"
"well, it'd take me a lifetime, old man, to undo what you done"
undo what you done

"Oh, come on, now, boy, think, what would Jesus do?"
"he'd shake his head like a angry mother," spoke the boy
"and say I did what I could do"
"but you take care of it, please, like it's the only one you got
and it'd take ten lifetimes, boy, to undo what I've done"

Boy shrugged, walked away
the man stood and watched as he was leaving
boy just walked away
the man stood alone thinking

One hand is bleeding and the other hand holds the gun
while everything is open, oh, everything is shut down, down, down
begin to ending is really just a go round and round and round
and as I stand here, the ground beneath is nothing more than one point of view

What you got? what you got in your head? your secret's safe with me
well, I found the truth, friend, let me whisper in your ear
take good care of it, please, it's the only one there is
can I twist it, please? can I give it just a little twist?

Boy shrugged, walked away
the man stood and watched that boy misgiving
boy just walked away
the man stood there twisting

One hand is bleeding, oh, as the other hand holds the gun
everything is open, now, everything is shut down, down, down
no one is holding even if you, even if you're sure
you never know it all, the ground beneath is nothing more than my point of view

Boy shrugged, walked away
the man stood and watched the boy as leaving
boy just walked away
man stood there twisting

One hand is open and the other hand holds the gun
well, everything is open, oh, is everything coming down, down, down?
no one is holding, oh, even if you're, even if you know
you never know it all, but nothing more than, nothing more than my point of view

Boy shrugged, walked away
the man stood and watched as he was leaving
the man just stood there twisting
