Liner Notes: 

Song needs more work editing but in the rush to get going in 50/90 here it is. Better be true to yourself and the facts than the crowd.

Lyrics: 

Rest your case on the Wind:

A strong Winter storm, blew in form the North.Trees were deformed and so was myself
The castle bene storm, battlelines drawn
What should have been peace is now tattered and torn
You take your chance torn and rest your case on the wind

Left alone for an hour or so, twisted and tired and thin,
You stand to attention and rest your case on the wind
A body of thoughts drift past your eye, like so vague and cold distant twin
You brace yourself and rest your case on the wind.

The truth had been scorned, quickly shut down,
Tied in a box and buried alive.
The course of events we couldn't prevent
Written in stone in some General's tent
You take your chance torn and rest your case on the wind

The judge and the jury have gone to recess and the crowd is sipping gin,
You brace yourself and rest your case on the wind.
A body of thoughts drift past your eye, like so vague and cold distant twin
You brace yourself and put your faith on the wind.
You brace yourself and rest your case on the wind.

I really like this song! I especially like the lines "The course of events we couldn't prevent / Written in stone in some General's tent". The use of the altered tuning sounded really good as well. It paired with the song beautifully.

it was the title that caught my attention, and it works very well as the hook the writing throughout is excellent and has the flavor of the greenwich village folk revival. your delivery is gentle yet confident.

Another great song. Love that imagery of putting your faith in and resting your case on the wind. Great premise. Great delivery.

I love how spacious this sounds, feels like a plain in the mist.

Such imagery. The music is magical, the vocals incredible. I love it!

Digging the subtle vocal "wind" (at least I think that's what it is) after the last line of the verses. Also, the reverb/delay you used on the vocals gives a windy atmosphere and fits this perfectly.
Quite a song-writer! Just great writing here...
And like I said before, the tone/texture of your voice keeps me listening. Very well done as-is.
