Raven (Busted Stuff version) - Dave Matthews Band

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, think
What would Jesus do?
He'd 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?

Boy shrugged, walked away
The man stood and watched that boy disappearing
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 hoping, even if you, even if you're sure
Never know it all
The ground beneath is nothing more
Than my point of view

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

One hand is open
And the other hand holds a gun
But 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, 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
