rise and reason this
our future is a mess
oh the brave man came to all
pick up your bed and walk
oh my neighbors beat your
pickle in your head
i've lived with a my mellow message
the future is a mess

so great God given walls
woah check over mine
lonely roll them easy
won't ya got living on
man oh all this rage ya'll
won't you keep them live on
life gives what you forget to rave on man
the wings of loving will

fall then tossed away
greed calls and all the gold lie away me
all i'll answer with
loneliness loves a good friend

don't want to lay here
don't stare up at your round, round
you dare not think to fix your pain
but no good laying about, about, about
oh oh lay here do
what's got to get your love more
man i'll wait here
their love since i forgot you were raising alone

rose and reason for a little one
won't ya keep it up lying
i've made a raven
with huge purple knowing eyes
so my lady raise, yeah
oh but you know no lie
why loving, what's in it
dream is here
killing like a dog

know the greater right, they're wrong
won't ya good lord
your lady layed on
you can lose into
alone i ever been tired
tired of raven on
i'll give you minutes to play giving
getting to love the life

fall time trust away
their greed has got the best of all grey
oh no, tired again
oh how I miss you

oh oh lay here
oh love you go round, down
tell them all that's in you
the best of times will roll round, down, down
all alone yeah
lover lead another
the raven only grows here
here to say there's nothing more than my point of view

give up don't ya agree

steal the best away
oh man know i'll leave you
a minute by the door
rush out and love will not obey
nothing fast enough

fall then tossed away
real love and all the wrong will leave your way
hold all God to play
oh and no one ever play
man oh we've been
all of the way down, down, down
there all lay there
and oh i'll leave you round around oh

oh oh yeah yeah yeah
oh oh love oh love begins today
but no way here
all we know is there's
lots of makings of wanting you
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
