Lyrics
:

"This is called Where Were You Hiding When The Storm Broke?"

Born into a war and peace 
Forced to choose between 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 into two 
And turned your back on the only thing 
That could save you from yourself 

WHERE WERE YOU HIDING (FOUR)
WHEN THE STORM BROKE (WINDS) 
WHEN THE RAIN BEGAN TO FALL (HOWL)
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 
Well here comes the third degree
 
WHERE WERE YOU HIDING (FOUR) 
WHEN THE STORM BROKE (WINDS)
WHEN THE RAIN BEGAN TO FALL (HOWL)
WHEN THE THUNDER AND THE LIGHTNING STRUCK 
AND THE RAIN AND THE FOUR WINDS DID HOWL 

"How you doin' Boston, allright?"
"Let's sing it up"

All cards are marked 
All fates will collide 
'Cause 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? 
Oh, where were you? 

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

WHERE WERE YOU HIDING (FOUR)
WHEN THE STORM BROKE (WINDS) 
WHEN THE RAIN BEGAN TO FALL (HOWL)

WHERE WERE YOU HIDING (FOUR)
WHEN THE STORM BROKE (WINDS) 
WHEN THE RAIN BEGAN TO FALL (HOWL)

WHERE WERE YOU HIDING 
FOUR
WINDS
HOWL
