Dave Matthews Band's, "The Space Between"
Better Lyrics:
We've strange alibis.

With boring hearts,

What defiled-dyed eyed beast you be!

The race between.

We're strange allies

With warring hearts.

What a wild-eyed beast you be

The space between.

Dave Matthews Band's, "What Would you Say"
Better Lyrics:
What would you eat?
If you were so starving, but you did'nt eat meat
Don't cut a cow's lifeline, if you won't eat the beef
Don't bite the drumstick
What would you eat?
Original Lyrics:
What would you say?
Dont drop the big one, if you a monkey on a string
Don't cut my lifeline,if you a doggie on a chain
Don't bite the mailman
What would you say?
