9/13/2000 alternate lyrics

try and scream
coming up at you
aside from me i won't ask
what's been happening
no no i'll just watch
a passing stander-by
but no i would not do
i would not hurt a fly

not till day i die

oh this graceful ground
won't you give your hand
lie this razor
won't you go light again
same old game i do
is climbing up the wall
of this so deep inner scream
is slipping down the hall

bought then tossed away
reap all you have
and make your getaway
bought then tossed away
read the minutes turn into days
oh oh lady another seasons have clouded you
you climb on up this ladder
it's a good thing that you can do you know
but all the things you promised
and all you do is you try to lie to lie
oh oh lady i have to say
it's nothing more than my point of view

rust will rise and then
we'll see who's left to stand
can the waters clear the shore's health
we'll count the drowning ones
so far faith is so bleak
what's the good of this
remember don't trust those above
and cup hands to those who live

hand to those praise

oh the gravest grey
trouble is the fear
this space between you and me
the wingless dreams we feel
oh no weight into gold
they fall on deaf ears
oh man is a cat's supper
but he's the one we pick

bought then tossed away
oh the rich'll get your heaven's space someday
oh then tossed away
oh he'll win so who's the say
oh oh wait here
his mother seem's so proud of him
he's walking on so tall
and let the corpses lie but i'm here to read to read
but when you see how he swings
from all the right stars, stars, stars
but won't lay here
what price is there to go out of his heart
it's my point of view

oh oh rich boy
he get the pretty girl
oh the rich girl you know
well she could own the world
oh no all this grown
your temporary stay
don't worry about the mother while
when the chickens have lost their way

bought then tossed away
reap all we do our best to keep ahead
walk then tossed away
oh a heart's a precious thing
oh no love yeah oh love
you got it all wrong you got it all wrong you got
our time is short
but make the bucks while you can
oh the idea to throw at you
is to make your dreams where you live you live
i forgot about your coffin dear
constructed world into light to printing it point of view
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
