6/20/2000 alternate lyrics

rise and reason you give
too much is not enough
eat what you see leave bone
for someone else to cook
romance calls you to tea yeah
sip it like you’re typical
my love is what you make of it
brothers and sisters
it’s not enough

not enough

talk call
talking of leaving don’t worry
would you give it light
oh calling lazy
would you lie there today
man no raven to see yeah
flies the blackest wings
what you give when you get nothing
is everything you can give

call then tossed away
relight your morning
candles make your way
all wise men today
grief knows no better thing

oh man leave here
weigh yourself to roll down, down, down
older worries
wear the girl to get found, found, found
all man worry
of all those things you've got
dreamed, dreamed, dreamed
oh man lay this
have to say it’s
nothing more than my point of view

swallowed and cold in night
warm me by your fire
oh sweet dews drink tonight
take me while i’m out
no no raven to see here
it imitates beauty well
black bird from a dark heaven
oh won’t you drink to live a lie

oh come tossed away
reap what you know
you know there’s me to drink
oh what came of grace
roll the money and the rain

oh don't worry
won't be enough to row, row, row
made the way here
i have the both to love round and round and round
that love ride was the greatest thing you
moments in the morning
have to say there’s nothing great
that you wouldn’t do

oh great i do
what ya got in mind
all of the reasons
what ya got live in your head
we know all this through radio
on the corner babe
what you give when saying grace is wrong
won't you keep a living lie

fall then tossed away
read all you have but more lie in dreams
all i know is agree
reap on to witness

man i worry
what about around, around
and so evident the grace made
would not be them alive
oh yeah yeah ah
passion is the fates of all
the fates of wrong
i may be wrong
oh words you have to say your wildest
oh man he wasn't through
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
