9/20/2000 alternate lyrics

Wash in walk out
man he thinks he’s cool
black tie and hair tied back
won’t be late for school
so much goes on to me
won’t you go by your self
down the dark, dark hallyway where
you gotta be fool enough
you gotta be fool enough

Oh there mister please
anything for you
would like it breezy
won’t you go by it again
so now all I believe is what I hear from you
you say it’s good enough then
it’s good enough for me too

Bought then tossed away
we climb but try to make it worth your day
bought then tossed away
oh surely nothing will beat the urge

Oh no lay here
begs me time to roll round, around
years they packed me in the light
the box is in my heart around, around
oh no lady luck so more then this to be found around the world
oh no more then gold is worth
is nothing more then my point of view

Oh this dark isle
i’m sick of this dry town
no man is strong but oh
but surely God likes a drink now and then
oh but wage is up
the wages of your sins
got caught in the middle of some damn thing
I want to drink this in
drink this in

oh 'scuse me mister
would you like to taste the wine
oh this grape is
the grape is awfully fine
oh no rage is for me
I just want a little buzz
could you give me one, one drag one sip
and I'll be off your [?buzz/bus?]

Bought then tossed away
reaped all you can
from packing in the day
oh tired as you may be
oh we work for our misery
oh low head when
God has chased us all round, around
maybe must I got to believe in it
to the point i don’t buy it now, now, now
roll this up in your head love
no chosen flesh in my heart of all
reach out
fall away
but I have to say
it's nothing more than my point of view

Hey ask all guy
take a taste of my leaf
it’s the greatest green
it’ll give you some relief
oh no look at what it seems
idea can butcher your time
for feeling calm kind and good
for getting yourself high

Bought then tossed away
the lights spinning by
the rear-view mirror's grey
bought then tossed away
oh the waste of God's gift here
all away here is the sweetest smoke in the town, down
whenever the lord has to make it
why on earth would he put it down, down
roll friend of yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah oh don't leave me
oh oh what yeah
and I want this dark this shows enough
to make it 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
