The Wind Is Gonna Blow You Down

Words & Music by Kay Ashley

You're drowning in despair
you say that life is so unfair
the whole world's got you in the cross hairs
but you nailed yourself to that cross you bear.

And the wind is gonna blow you down
yeah, the wind is gonna blow you down.

You put out your flame
and the darkened coals reflect your shame
but there's no one to blame
no one left to play your game

You're running, hiding, casting stones
and now you'll reap the seeds you've sown
yeah, now you'll reap the seeds you've sown.

And the wind is gonna blow you down
yeah, the wind is gonna blow you down.

Your heart's consumed by fear and hate
no lessons learned, no wisdom gained
so you walk on towards your fate
and the desert sands, they lie in wait.

And the wind is gonna blow you down
yeah, the wind is gonna blow you down.

You're running, hiding, casting stones
and now you'll reap the seeds you've sown
yeah, now you'll reap the seeds you've sown...

The wind... is gonna blow you...
the wind... is gonna blow you down...
