8/27/2000 alternate lyrics

Rise up great and oh
With a pickle in your bed
What's all them razors, eh?
The salt into the blade
Long no razor dream oh
Won't you give it light
in love mine like I did rain it's on me
dreamed she bred the rain
I dream she blessed the rain

Wow get drink of rhyme
Won't you keep it light
in wonder raging
She cut off feel to me
Run off (daisy?) please you
Bled onto the floor
Now your cut's all dripping washing more
Clean up after you

Ball then tossed away
Read all and now you know I've got to Cage grace all while this rain
No empire lasts that way
Fall away here
Oh no the ring round, round
It's better that I have ringing in me
All the joys that go round and round and round
Oh man leave here
Melody la-va
Did you fall then later
Have to say it's nothing more than what you want to

Walls ball talk till you give
Your best defense and I
Know I don't taste your fault
You're good at this lie
Oh speak truth to me
Now the politician's reel
All eyes on the (grace ended?) oh
The promises aren't real
Two-faced after all.

Now did wake roll down
Won't you keep it light and
Whoa Lord, maybe
I'll never be the same
Oh no all this greed you think
We could learn to share
Not a hope in hell for mankind
If we suck up in despair

Talk then tossed away
Greed the girl needs more forgiveness than betrayal
Oh light on this day
She's got gifts that we can see

Rain on all this
Oh she's got to go down, down
No she cries and begs it well
Let me be my own light
No better have I been no
The whole world is so round and round and round
Maybe later you could teach us all
A little patience would you

Crazy love lie
Won't you give the light and
Oh no, razor
I'm gonna get tired of us

Scream that you want to be
You're sharp without (the crime /decline?)
Fun now but when you were born
Your silver spoon supply

Ball then tossed away
She always sings to God now go away
God won't fill your way
More the war she did great

Oh she's bleeding
Oh no it's in both sides I'm
Down inside her needed to see all
Living of a lie

But I've no light on
so God I need
Got on a rollerboard
Yeah [...]
Oh but
Because she's the one where
If you say she's nothing more than pleasures to do
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
