9/1/2000 alternate lyrics

this color changes you
or most of it is
i will rain down
recall what types you give
a man is soft and growth stop
there's nothing in a tear

called a grace stop grieve you
won't ya look it down
so much is raven
wickedy life it is
so no hell that's real lord
more she'd hope she got
she got bathed in world being this
crushing in little balls

bought then tossed away
recall i want it back and ever again
last time i was spent
don't don't like it anyway

soon away here
weigh me down for this round, round
pretending i come out caring
when i don't really want you round, around, around
oh oh worry
that i left you back you whore, whore, whore
oh now this way
find myself out
back to the only walks i could do

some of us tie
we waste it in the wind
i would go down this show
december's calling home
oh my heaven to be
like frozen blood is sold
i know tickets are the compass
but i won't die in here

i'll surely die in here

walled and reason lay here
won't ya give away
i'm the raven
there's nothing left to say
rain down on this plot
the last opening here
cause i help live and on my grave
the blood stills smells of bliss

gone then tossed away
rumors have got me spinning in my head
caught then tossed away
room for no one but my head

oh no lay here
lord knows it round, round
call back yet is raging
have to wait around, around
and all i lay here
won't you buy it and won't you buy
won't you buy and left you bare
and all i came here soaking wasted i wanted you

he talk gave gave
but he can't get it
louder read out
won't you give it play
oh and i have this grace here
i'm lost in my own head
love's high
but why fight with it
oh i'm much better off as dead he says

better off dead

lord with reared up strength
won't ya give your love
won't say a reason
to take your love and grace
oh and i have you to blame
i wish i could have put it on you
but you're too innocent it's real
and i'm too much a fool

bought then tossed away
oh why the sun was harboring tales
i spent what i could
locked up wondering how i would

so oh lay here
so i'll love you down
and watch you rot
and waste you down
do you walking there but
hold you there your brother
save i got no way here
i got no time and i go round, round, round
oh be down lying here i and
i have to say it's nothing more than i would not do
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
