6/27/2000 alternate lyrics


you have to better bet round, round, round
oh don't let me love you
and never leave then gone and gone
so much on the paper will be nothing
to the bastard all the glow raging new

stall i forgot to be driving
would you cook it up here
i could give you hungry men and stronger handed
here to cook what you got
any man lover free you're
indivisible
won't know but angry scares me
there's nothing but wrong

and you can't sir

how do you read up like i lay
won't you bring the light on
it's not you do and not a baby babe
won't you go look it's on
oh no raven is here but
tiny bitty to call
black winged a mockery turned wrong
woman let it out

bought then tossed away
reap all the tired the best is on the way
oh what notice wrong
greed has drenched us to betrayal

oh man leave here
all the men roll round and lay
no i know i see you
though i lay oh i lay here
oh man all in the world
together fell out as in a hell
dreamt you would dilude me for
all these things we have to take we got wronged to do

fall read
won't ya give a lighten
oh how i read on
you get her in the back
oh my head all day
i put all to God
when you don't even understand
the best of what he's got

bought then tossed away
reap all you can your work's not done yet
lord still some to save
oh the innocence betrayed

on our way here
heaven only down and down
oh dead i grieve well
oh my lord it's a man laid down
oh my lord i got love
oh lord oh lord oh lord
oh lord oh lord oh lord
oh hold me down
oh all the more the minutes
i notice in your eyes you see too
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
