It's mine to walk a lonely road, a dark and windy sea
There beneath the moonless sky the memories bring me peace
I've Been beyond the reach I swear the places I have seen
More magical and mystical than most men even dream

The Oceans of the ancient world are calling out to me
I was round before the earth and long before the sea
As I stand at night between the Ocean and the sky
My mind is free to wander and I spread my wings and fly

Blow them down Boys
Blow them Down

And back to dust to see the origin of species
Where life was but a struggle, a fermenting of the yeast
Consciousness has not withheld a single sound belief
Lessons lost in History have sown the seeds we reap

Time goes on the worse it gets, it's just a bigger feast
And flesh becomes a sacrilege with every evil deed
Fellowships and followers of something in between
Blood and bones gon' fill the land for men of broken dreams

Blow them down boys
Blow them down

Twenty days from Africa, the islands are a chain
The peoples lives who live on them resemble much the same
Centuries of white mans' ships have fallen there like rain
Still a song of Freedom's sung that someday things will change

From far and wide, I cannot find a place where I can hide
I see the way these people live is worse than how they die
Toiling for evil men who beckon their desires
If I were God, I'd drown them all or set them all on fire

Blow them down boys
Blow them down!
