Raven (Main Song Page)
9/8/2000 alternate lyrics

lost and maybe
i'm troubled more than you
often crazy
well there's nothing i can do
lean on me if you must
but i might not stand up
i got the backbone of a dead man since
fondness has been gone

hopeless as your love

all too lively one
holes right through his knees
i swear if he's changed much
it's good enough for him
oh no don't you believe him
there's more always to get
steal hard on the dreams of those
harboring weariness to live

bought then tossed away
read oh i've got no place in my way
fall then tossed away
dreams if they play the dreams down

oh oh lay here
all the love to go around, round
mother says you'll get there and
the father says keep your head tied down
mother pour the wondering
so lonely to the cover and the lie
come now leave her
nothing i would do
nothing but this my point of view

girl will you
all she say is what
a texas little girl
she like it hot oh spicy too
it runs her mouth raw
same as red that she wore
i feel like i'm in space
should have kept my fingers off that
that angel's little face

the angel's little face

oh cry to me blood
but kiss me if you're lost
oh while you're strong i play
and roll me down to trust
stranger gape all and walk lie
rope is on her neck
gonna jump off the chair she grew up on
so memories won't obsess

bought then tossed away
oh girl she seems forget the dream again
bought then tossed away
real grand the cemetaries

roll while she's changing
her sister says she's allowed, allowed, allowed
body's on the mantle her father scream
you keep your head down, down, down
oh wanna lay here
oh love you got your innocense all gone
man away here
this song i do is what she hope is my point of view

oh walk out tall
i won't be next to you
strong man it later
she kissed you and she flew
oh no not just for me
i pay and it be done
all innocense aside from here
the money hasn't done

bought then tossed away
oh innocense betrayed again and again
bought then tossed away
read between her tears the rain

oh oh lay here
sister says she worked around, round
mother said go look for him
her father say please don't head down, down, down
follow in her heaven
all i did you all i did all i did was beg
i said deeper won't you give her
they want to see but oh
nothing more than my point of view
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
