Lyrics
:

Born into a war and peace 
Forced to choose between a right and wrong 
Each man kills the thing he loves 
For better or for worse 
Face to face with a ragged truth 
Mixed up and torn in two 
And turned your back on the only thing 
That could save you from yourself 

WHERE WERE YOU HIDING 
WHEN THE STORM BROKE 
WHEN THE RAIN BEGAN TO FALL 
WHEN THE THUNDER AND THE LIGHTNING STRUCK 
AND THE RAIN AND THE FOUR WINDS DID HOWL 

After all time building up 
Comes inevitable knocking down 
(ONE BY ONE )
Comes receivers liars gamblers 
Pick pocket entourage 
(TWO BY TWO)
Selling out is a cardinal sin 
Sinning with a safety net (THREE BY THREE) 
They say that all things come in threes 
Here comes the third degree 

WHERE WERE YOU HIDING 
WHEN THE STORM BROKE 
WHEN THE RAIN BEGAN TO FALL 
WHEN THE THUNDER AND THE LIGHTNING STRUCK 
AND THE RAIN AND THE FOUR WINDS DID HOWL 

All cards are marked 
And all fates will collide 
The truth is the truth 
Or the truth is surely a lie 
Get back in your shelter 
If you can't come down off the fence 
And one more question 
Where were you? 
Where were you? 

WHERE WERE YOU HIDING 
WHEN THE STORM BROKE 
WHEN THE RAIN BEGAN TO FALL 
WHEN THE THUNDER AND THE LIGHTNING STRUCK 
AND THE FOUR WINDS DID HOWL
WHERE WERE YOU HIDING 
WHEN THE STORM BROKE 
WHEN THE RAIN BEGAN TO FALL 
WHERE WERE YOU HIDING 
WHEN THE STORM BROKE 
WHEN THE RAIN BEGAN TO FALL 
WHERE WERE YOU HIDING

FOUR
WINDS
HOWL

Mike Peters Notes
:We started playing it on the US tour, but never took it seriously until we went into the studio. All We had at first was the title, then I wrote words in about 10 minutes. It’s the most spontaneous song.
(Boston Rock, 1984)
