Raven (Main Song Page)
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
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
