Raven (Main Song Page)
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
main lyrics
[Busted Stuff version]

What you got what you got in your hand? a father said to son
I got the whole world here Daddy between my fingers and my thumb
Well you take care of it please—it's the only one
Well it would take me a lifetime old man to undo what you've done
Oh come on now boy thing—what would Jesus do?
He shake his head like an angry mother
Smoke the boy and say I did what I could do
But you take care of it please
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 a gun
While everything is open everything is shut down, down, down
Begin to ending is really
Just a go round and round and round
As I stand here—the ground beneath is nothing more than one point of view
What you got what you got in your hand?
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
One hand is open and the other hand holds the gun
Everything is open
Now is everything coming down, down, down
No one is hoping, even if you know
You never know it all
Nothing more than my point of view
Boy shrugged walked away
The man stood and watched as he was leaving
The man stood there twisting

[2000 Studio Session version]

Rise and graze on this
the future is a mess
oh, will you take this thing
from us we give it in
no longer yet, oh oh no
won't you got your thing
I cheer then hesitate from
one other thing

One other thing
count out the radiant life
won't you give in now
out of the reasons
let a light is rushed

Stone and gate is lay
won't you got your lips
live up to your dreams and give
wondering you're over there

Dark then tossed away
breach all yourself
on love is a gaze
gone then tossed away
read the best you can and in

Oh I'll lay here
don't give up till you're down, down, down
they don't kneel
heaven's all underground
can we leave all
the lord knows it's all dark
rain is it you see this
I have to say it's nothing more than
my point of view

This pride reigns for a girl
she slides across the floor
looks good as an angel
how much I want some more

She's all needed to me
best thing I can come
what's all been played with me
the sweetest one of all
yeah the sweetest one of all

Come on raven give it up
won't you get it the light up
knowledge waiting
here like a dead log
when I say this I mean all
won't you go with your head
live life till you don't need any
but don't give up a bit

Fall then tossed away
oh, don't you give up
just a little stray
gone, then tossed away
read, God is on the page

Pray on word
have you say you get down, down, down
oh, we leave here
we need more love round, and round, and round
oh won't let it go on, oh man cower down be down
here no worry, to rest they say nothing more than I wouldn't do

Can't leave us alone to die, no
would you give your love
light up a way aha
if you like to live it down on it
won't let you down here
would you get you're locked up
we have to raise it up, to spread around the place

God got locked away
no, don't place any time
we walk away
then rise up your wings
read way out of the watch

Growing lady
oh the one gone round, and round, and round
lay down near you
but who be down no no down there
pray that we don't, we don't, we don't
who would leave this
I have to say it's nothing more than
my point of view
