Raven (Main Song Page)
9/6/2000 alternate lyrics

all too too honest to be afraid
oh spent this girl her soul away
she's all golden to me
she's good enough to eat
girl she knows if soul's worth she's gonna
sell her soul for me

she sold her soul for me

oh the sweet love greasy
it's for your price
oh baby jesus
made me sweet at last
so now rage on to cry out
i sell it for buck
paid sheep now get on too young
the sweet girl she's been fucked

gone then tossed away
greed love she holds oh dearest to her way
bought then tossed away
the girl sweet child is lost again

mother angel is
father left to walk down her
though her father may go
she's got to hate coming round and round around
mother she wept
oh and the father he would moan and moan
she won't waste and worry
but it's only this i have to say is my point of view

pain grows and
it cuts her to the bone
graves of hope's death
oh when she hangs up the phone
no don't raise a war
i've seen your husband love
dark and hungry woman
you're married to her

your marriage is to the world

fall then reason
oh you can't afford the price
oh and it sees her
oh go this is looking nice
so devote all the rage
your daughter she's a whore
but know that's cause you said for sure boy
that she could be no more

bought then tossed away
oh smile your time will come from day to day
bought then tossed away
read you have to escape together

mother she smile and say oh
oh she say she's a queen, queen
her father go outside and
his father tells him don't you hear a hear a thing
mother fall over
what could he do what could he do what could he do
well oh ragings
i have to say is nothing more than my point of view

hold it right there sir
if you like what you see
gonna take you to another room
where you could pay for me
yes i would love to so
you remind me when i was young
hot talk and rain woman
oh this one won't come above

bought then tossed away
girl got more to her then preachy kissing men
bought then tossed away
oh the angel falls again

almost there
she knows she's coming it's down, down, down
off the greatest tower say
what i fear is i fear i fear love
oh to be more loved
oh the raven cries out
and is smiling smiling smiling smile away
this'll all be lost and all drowned
and all i got you to believe
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
