rise your rink up boy
pick up your bed and walk
that's no easy way to talk to me now
i'm sick as a dog
know i'm sent from heaven well
give me some drugs then talk
i feel like i'm dying but you're not helping anymore

helping any much

come greasy boy die
won't you give your lies
thou art a raven
come and give my kiss
no more raided ya reason
you're greasy to the core
get sick and you did it yourself
i will do no more

bought then tossed away
oh greed has got us all wide in sway
oh hit then away
read won't back again

oh man leave here
ran you got to go down, down
read myself to think thrill
seems more fun to go down it and around
oh oh lay yes here
no one left till your gone, gone
the best is in your heart don't wait
and all i know is riding up this dry gets mildew

a song then sense this breeze oh
wipe it in your hair
and the black winged raven casts his shadow
and imitates your stare
oh no wise man we see the world
behind the sheppard door
bird talks like a good boy but oh
but say the bird is wrong
to the grave

there's something wrong

oh look laid up move is yours
what you gotten into your head
your head it bleeds uh huh
this thing's in my brain
cause i'm getting higher by the minute
don't know what path i took
but it's got me flipped out for joy but
i'll come down the wrong

fall then tossed away
greed has us hypnotized but in a pleasant way
take what time you have
eat the world and leave the rest

oh oh lay here
oh lay and hold you come down, down
watch each other's worry
i can't believe heaven's in the ground and round and round
all of believe yeah
oh what is life
back on the world believe
this is all the things as though don't get you alone
yet you know

what you gonna burn
what you gonna do
watch you leave your heaven
when it's right in front of you
raven lady he'll leave you
on the walk again
time gives what it can to you
but lord your heart will give in some

fall then tossed away
word like your gravest all the walk man
i need words to say
but oh, i'm empty from day i came

oh i want you
and see through it though round, round
like a wind over a moat
where i am nothing in you
just round, round, round
yeah and i know
i do run i do die la la la
what if you don't fall
i said maybe those
you've rounded up
that's got me in you
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
