Wash in walk out
man he thinks he’s cool
black tie and hair tied back
won’t be late for school
so much goes on to me
won’t you go by your self
down the dark, dark hallyway where
you gotta be fool enough
you gotta be fool enough

Oh there mister please
anything for you
would like it breezy
won’t you go by it again
so now all I believe is what I hear from you
you say it’s good enough then
it’s good enough for me too

Bought then tossed away
we climb but try to make it worth your day
bought then tossed away
oh surely nothing will beat the urge

Oh no lay here
begs me time to roll round, around
years they packed me in the light
the box is in my heart around, around
oh no lady luck so more then this to be found around the world
oh no more then gold is worth
is nothing more then my point of view

Oh this dark isle
i’m sick of this dry town
no man is strong but oh
but surely God likes a drink now and then
oh but wage is up
the wages of your sins
got caught in the middle of some damn thing
I want to drink this in
drink this in

oh 'scuse me mister
would you like to taste the wine
oh this grape is
the grape is awfully fine
oh no rage is for me
I just want a little buzz
could you give me one, one drag one sip
and I'll be off your [?buzz/bus?]

Bought then tossed away
reaped all you can
from packing in the day
oh tired as you may be
oh we work for our misery
oh low head when
God has chased us all round, around
maybe must I got to believe in it
to the point i don’t buy it now, now, now
roll this up in your head love
no chosen flesh in my heart of all
reach out
fall away
but I have to say
it's nothing more than my point of view

Hey ask all guy
take a taste of my leaf
it’s the greatest green
it’ll give you some relief
oh no look at what it seems
idea can butcher your time
for feeling calm kind and good
for getting yourself high

Bought then tossed away
the lights spinning by
the rear-view mirror's grey
bought then tossed away
oh the waste of God's gift here
all away here is the sweetest smoke in the town, down
whenever the lord has to make it
why on earth would he put it down, down
roll friend of yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah oh don't leave me
oh oh what yeah
and I want this dark this shows enough
to make it 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
