9/6/2000 alternate lyrics

all too too honest to be afraid
oh spent this girl her soul away
she's all golden to me
she's good enough to eat
girl she knows if soul's worth she's gonna
sell her soul for me

she sold her soul for me

oh the sweet love greasy
it's for your price
oh baby jesus
made me sweet at last
so now rage on to cry out
i sell it for buck
paid sheep now get on too young
the sweet girl she's been fucked

gone then tossed away
greed love she holds oh dearest to her way
bought then tossed away
the girl sweet child is lost again

mother angel is
father left to walk down her
though her father may go
she's got to hate coming round and round around
mother she wept
oh and the father he would moan and moan
she won't waste and worry
but it's only this i have to say is my point of view

pain grows and
it cuts her to the bone
graves of hope's death
oh when she hangs up the phone
no don't raise a war
i've seen your husband love
dark and hungry woman
you're married to her

your marriage is to the world

fall then reason
oh you can't afford the price
oh and it sees her
oh go this is looking nice
so devote all the rage
your daughter she's a whore
but know that's cause you said for sure boy
that she could be no more

bought then tossed away
oh smile your time will come from day to day
bought then tossed away
read you have to escape together

mother she smile and say oh
oh she say she's a queen, queen
her father go outside and
his father tells him don't you hear a hear a thing
mother fall over
what could he do what could he do what could he do
well oh ragings
i have to say is nothing more than my point of view

hold it right there sir
if you like what you see
gonna take you to another room
where you could pay for me
yes i would love to so
you remind me when i was young
hot talk and rain woman
oh this one won't come above

bought then tossed away
girl got more to her then preachy kissing men
bought then tossed away
oh the angel falls again

almost there
she knows she's coming it's down, down, down
off the greatest tower say
what i fear is i fear i fear love
oh to be more loved
oh the raven cries out
and is smiling smiling smiling smile away
this'll all be lost and all drowned
and all i got you to believe
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
