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
To undo what you’ve done

Oh come on now boy think what would Jesus do?
He shake his head like an angry mother - spoke 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

Boy shrugged walked away
The man stood and watched as he was leaving
Boy just walked away
The man stood there twisting

One hand is bleeding and the other hand holds a gun
Everything is open now everything is shut down, down, down
No one is holding even if you even if your 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 as he was leaving
Boy just walked away
The man stood there twisting

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 even if you know
You never know it all - 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 stood there twisting


Alternate lyrics from the 2000 "Lillywhite Sessions".


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 over thing

one over 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
ah, 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 it in time
we walk away
then rise up your wings
read the way out of the wars

oh, my lady
oh you all in all round and round and round
let God lay you
but all be down you don't know love
oh freedom, freedom, freedom, freedom, freedom
oh la la la freedom

oh won't leave this
here to say it's
nothing more than my point of view
