Raven (Main Song Page)
8/31/2000 alternate lyrics

that's all slight and
risk your bed of oh
fall up just for once
on no greatest roar
covered in your dreams
your blood pours out of her face where
her smile used to be

where her smile used to be

called and reason more
more she goes away
thou art a raven
so picking at his head
lord knows you've all discreet all
won't ya keep it lighten
like love that tries to show boy
that comes a flying in

fall then tossed away
grieve long this girl is been involved and betrayed
oh then tossed away
oh the family's dying again

soon away here
we roll the life with us round and
we bear along the rain here
she feels like she's going down, down
if heavens leads to progress
think i'll dance the rainbow round and round
the bones of love defy this
in as though it's nothing more that i wouldn't do

saw this condor
there's nothing they can do
while the angels fly overhead look
drop on die to go
wrote all they this could
the bitterness is quiet
but lord if a vengeance could reap up
the songs we would supply

the vengeance of life

lord it reel up your head
but won't ya give it life
sparing the changes
so i can fear my time
lord my heart has grown
you're echoing the wrong
bought all then sold bits to come
the profit's been quite fun

took then tossed away
reap all that what you sow not what you take
bought then tossed away
reap on no one again

oh man lay here
bearing love that i got, got
playfully i experiment
the poem love surround, round
oh man know this God
is all vengeful and right, right, right
oh man lay here
after all this God you got
it's my point of view

cover grave low veil
won't ya give a lighten
mine is a raven
black wings like the night
sung by bird is above
pulls dead eyes from his face
where once he winked at the ladies
a hole of ugliness

bought then tossed away
we've caught ourselves between the money
bought and tossed away
squeezes all she does is

send a raven
on the sight arise, rise
the moment we have our hands
memories of good love
oh then too familiar
she smoked out in the barn light
she hide out with her friends now
praying lord is nothing more than i wouldn't 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
