walls inside
why must you compare
oh hatred works sometimes
as long as you're not there
so much for being free
to choose what you would like
just be as free as we want you to
and then you'll be alright

cause then you'll be alright

how the player screams out
she sells herself for gold
out on the street yeah
won't you keep the light on
when you want to breed
then why not do some more
fat man bought himself love
where else could he go

bought then tossed away
see no crime is here between no one but you
bought all her mother's words
she needs more than love from you

on her way now
tell me what she did wrong, wrong
nothing that declares love
as she stares at out this for so long
and no man leave her heaven
she got no heaven but gives and gives and gives
why would wave all she see me blow and
still tries hard to be lovely too

think a minute what you mean sir
what she does is bad
no blood was spilled oh i assure you
a good time it was had
lonely man on his knees
he's looking for love
she got what he wants
and for the right price
he can get it all

blood and it be got

lonely man also come on
service me for up to a week
for fifty dollars
oh you can get the best of me
oh no you silly girl
there's much more you can give
but wait for what what do i have a chance
in the world as ugly as this

bought then tossed away
oh her beauty's been betrayed by ugliness
lay down give it away
oh your innocense teases

on her way God
oh he pencil her down, down, down
oh be this changed but always
harbor many round, around, around
oh oh leave here
i haven't got this rain this rain
oh this pretty baby's here and half the things
that she came to do i got want your room

oh sugar sweet i love
he look it at his self
love raven
she fakes it very good
lay me all to relief ah
blood has not been spilled
what guilt for a little bit of sugar
stolen from her youth

bought then tossed away
she's much better than she's been given a chance to make
oh life love it breaks
to just a girl lost in disgrace

oh oh leave it
her mourning's on the ground, around
for those that don't lose this thing
and put her half hand around around
why did you why did you
why did you why did you
want me for a day alone, alone
the mourning in the kingdom which
princess lost and the mud
is all that she wants to rule
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
