9/15/2000 alternate lyrics

rise and rage on
squeeze your little head
oh your love time alone
the magazine sweet spread
all the reasons you
spend alone at night
oh sweet hours here
discovering what's not right

you find your feelings lie

oh oh sweet soft
won't ya give a lighten
oh this raven doth talk
sake you squeeze by
oh no rub into me
i need another while
keep up your sinning boy
and you will die in style

bought then tossed away
read what you can from all this bitterness
oh God frowns each day
on our petty little way

know i gave it
what's to do raced up round, round, round
oh she's sweetness
he thinks of love when she's not around, around
oh what boy yeah
his mother lets him know talk is cheap
know the way i mean
i'm nothing
but i must admit it's my point of view

oh this girl now
she's only seventeen
met a man in secret room one day
and he's been in between
so now wrought is the rain
the wrongs are counted high
how to forgive your own flesh and blood
the innocence run dry

the innocence dry

oh man love you give
kisses blown at me
i'll be your slave
won't you go by it again
oh no i've got a weakness
it's for the younger thing
but i'm fool if i'm gonna bend over
to take what i surrend

bought then tossed away
real love and dry is all victory
bought then tossed away
we teach ignorance to grey
oh no weigh this
no you can't but round, round
father said don't trust it and the
mother keep your head down my child, my child
oh oh lay here
oh rubs you out again, again, again
oh man later i have to end it
nothing more than my point of view

hey look tough and
oh she sold it in the street
oh the way love is
you make her feel quite cheap
no don't belly what you read or feel
believe and dance to grey
oh God's got a plan for us all
if you believe the prayer

fall then tossed away
don't pride yourself in foolish ignorance
bent hands night to pray
think there's someone listening
no i don't you know
i feel we've been led around, around
God should bend his world for her
please answer to me is down and down we go
oh what live oh what live oh what live
i read his love is oh more than this i swear
there's nothing more than nothing more than my point of view
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
