Raven (Main Song Page)
9/18/2000 alternate lyrics

rose and grateful
buried his own head
like an ostrich able but
blinded by his own
be God draining to me
to fight the fighters for
grow it in and give up what you have
cause you don't feel like more

you don't see it all

caught between this song
rockin lock the place
oh the wave and
he acted not disgraced

so all slowly you creep
the anger grows to pain
till now you can't see a thing
without feeling its haze

bought then tossed away
rage has got the better hand of you again
bought then tossed away
anger's made it feel strange

oh oh lay here
hold me back you come round, around
nothing but the silence says is
he rolled his hand in the ground around around
oh no he sees that
no one can be just right right
it's all the way mystery and a
it's nothing more than nothing more than my point of view

oh hostile little one
you're wormfood like us all
you wanted feed to fill my bowl up
and make me better once
oh no feast is as great
as quiet content meant
he rolled up in a big bucket
but couldn't smell the shit

and the bucket full of shit

stopped your breathing love
came creeping in his head
could not escape from
the anger that is said
lord of all that it does
if he misunderstood
but what more than walking tall could
quiet the angry rose

bought then tossed away
oh feeling grows to grey and summer rain
bought then tossed away
greed has got him tired again

man i'm waking
all she has to go round, around
father falls through pages
to die in his angriest lovely, lovely, love
oh now taken
let it feed the ground, around
nothing will be faster
just take all you have to give
nothing more than my point of view

fall rocks stray
you're walking with the dead
gotta live by brave soul
won't you go light again
so know life is a lie
we tell again and again
sure enough when we're done we go
back in where we begin

fall then tossed away
slow down
there's no reason to hurry friend
still break break your head
read the anger's got you again
oh low lay i hold my head to the sun, sun
they forgive the idol but
but oh you are the one, around, around
open the one that you
alove will lead a good life
heaven with a lady
but i'm crowded in my own skull
and for this 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
