that's all slight and
risk your bed of oh
fall up just for once
on no greatest roar
covered in your dreams
your blood pours out of her face where
her smile used to be

where her smile used to be

called and reason more
more she goes away
thou art a raven
so picking at his head
lord knows you've all discreet all
won't ya keep it lighten
like love that tries to show boy
that comes a flying in

fall then tossed away
grieve long this girl is been involved and betrayed
oh then tossed away
oh the family's dying again

soon away here
we roll the life with us round and
we bear along the rain here
she feels like she's going down, down
if heavens leads to progress
think i'll dance the rainbow round and round
the bones of love defy this
in as though it's nothing more that i wouldn't do

saw this condor
there's nothing they can do
while the angels fly overhead look
drop on die to go
wrote all they this could
the bitterness is quiet
but lord if a vengeance could reap up
the songs we would supply

the vengeance of life

lord it reel up your head
but won't ya give it life
sparing the changes
so i can fear my time
lord my heart has grown
you're echoing the wrong
bought all then sold bits to come
the profit's been quite fun

took then tossed away
reap all that what you sow not what you take
bought then tossed away
reap on no one again

oh man lay here
bearing love that i got, got
playfully i experiment
the poem love surround, round
oh man know this God
is all vengeful and right, right, right
oh man lay here
after all this God you got
it's my point of view

cover grave low veil
won't ya give a lighten
mine is a raven
black wings like the night
sung by bird is above
pulls dead eyes from his face
where once he winked at the ladies
a hole of ugliness

bought then tossed away
we've caught ourselves between the money
bought and tossed away
squeezes all she does is

send a raven
on the sight arise, rise
the moment we have our hands
memories of good love
oh then too familiar
she smoked out in the barn light
she hide out with her friends now
praying lord is nothing more than i wouldn't do
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
