This here's the story of Tossed By The Wind,
The Wind, out on his own with deceptions of men.
He was warned by his momma,
"Son don't listen to them"
And here's what she said to our friend,

"Be sure that no one takes you captive
By the decption of men
Cause you will find it to be tragic in the end."

To begin He was with him, with him and glad,
Oh yeah.
Mr Pure-and-Simple was the only one he knew,
Oh and all that he had, oh yeah.
'Til he heard from the learned,
"Son your facts are all wrong."
The Jesus he knew got cut out of his song.
Now he sings praises to Hume all day long.

Be sure that no one takes you captive
By the decption of men,
Oh cause you will find it to be tragic in the end.

Oh, we've been infecting your sons and your daughters.
Make all checks payable to your alma mater.
They're training for life on their own,
So far from home.

This here's the story of Tossed By The Wind,
Who was cursed by his thurst for the wisdom of men.
Now broken and hopeless, he heard from within
A still small voice calling to him.
Lies always fail in the end,
Truth will prevail in the end,
My grace is sufficient my friend.

Be sure that no one takes you captive
By the decption of men,
Oh cause you will find it to be tragic in the end.
Oh. Be sure that no one takes you captive
By the decption of men
Cause you will find it to be tragic in the end, yeah.

    Lyric CorrectionWanted to correct the line, "Now he sings praises to him all day long." It should be, "Now he sings praises to Hume all day long."

    This is in reference to David Hume, a famous philosopher known for his skepticism. The verse makes much more sense with this change, as the young man who began with a child-like faith lost it due to the influence of "the learned". As a somewhat young man of faith myself, and in college, I can attest to the endless stream of doubt and disbelief from both classmates and professors, even (and often) though they can't see or understand their own belief (or lack thereof).

    Hope this helped!
