Raven (Main Song Page)
6/22/2000 alternate lyrics

rise your rink up boy
pick up your bed and walk
that's no easy way to talk to me now
i'm sick as a dog
know i'm sent from heaven well
give me some drugs then talk
i feel like i'm dying but you're not helping anymore

helping any much

come greasy boy die
won't you give your lies
thou art a raven
come and give my kiss
no more raided ya reason
you're greasy to the core
get sick and you did it yourself
i will do no more

bought then tossed away
oh greed has got us all wide in sway
oh hit then away
read won't back again

oh man leave here
ran you got to go down, down
read myself to think thrill
seems more fun to go down it and around
oh oh lay yes here
no one left till your gone, gone
the best is in your heart don't wait
and all i know is riding up this dry gets mildew

a song then sense this breeze oh
wipe it in your hair
and the black winged raven casts his shadow
and imitates your stare
oh no wise man we see the world
behind the sheppard door
bird talks like a good boy but oh
but say the bird is wrong
to the grave

there's something wrong

oh look laid up move is yours
what you gotten into your head
your head it bleeds uh huh
this thing's in my brain
cause i'm getting higher by the minute
don't know what path i took
but it's got me flipped out for joy but
i'll come down the wrong

fall then tossed away
greed has us hypnotized but in a pleasant way
take what time you have
eat the world and leave the rest

oh oh lay here
oh lay and hold you come down, down
watch each other's worry
i can't believe heaven's in the ground and round and round
all of believe yeah
oh what is life
back on the world believe
this is all the things as though don't get you alone
yet you know

what you gonna burn
what you gonna do
watch you leave your heaven
when it's right in front of you
raven lady he'll leave you
on the walk again
time gives what it can to you
but lord your heart will give in some

fall then tossed away
word like your gravest all the walk man
i need words to say
but oh, i'm empty from day i came

oh i want you
and see through it though round, round
like a wind over a moat
where i am nothing in you
just round, round, round
yeah and i know
i do run i do die la la la
what if you don't fall
i said maybe those
you've rounded up
that's got me in you
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
