"The Walking Wounded" as written by Anthony S Raneri, Jack A O'shea, Nick Ghanbarian and Christopher John Guglielmo....
I'm weak like a one-armed boxer
Throwing punch after punch
After punch I, I give in
I'm so dumb, I'm surprised when they duck

Scared, paired walking soldiers
We're all wounded anyway
In our respective ways

Scientists, they couldn't fix me
I'm so tired of getting out of bed
But who would want to die as a cowardly little child
When our time is up, we'll be ashamed or proud

You stretch the truth like a crooked salesman
Telling lie after lie
After lie, but where's the line
You burn bridges, you're breaking down dams

Scientists, they couldn't fix me
I'm so tired of getting out of bed
But who would want to die as a cowardly little child
When our time is up, we'll be ashamed or proud

Let's take this train for one last stop, I know
It's not the end, but it can't be that far

Scientists they couldn't fix me
I'm so tired of getting out of bed
But who would want to die as a cowardly little child
When our time is up, then our time is up

Scientists, they couldn't fix me
I'm so tired of getting out of bed
Who would want to die as a cowardly little child
When our time is up, then our time is up

Scientists, they couldn't fix me
I'm so tired of getting out of bed
Who would want to die as a cowardly little child
When our time is up, we'll be ashamed or proud

    General CommentAnthony said the song and name of the album was named the walking wounded because the EMT's referred to them as the walking wounded after the wreck that killed beatz (RIP).

    General CommentYeah, the guest vocals are Vinnie from IATA.

    Bayside just keeps getting more and more amazing.
    I can't wait for the new record.


    The guitar solo is incredible.

    "You stretch the truth like a crooked salesman
    Telling lie, after lie
    After lie, but wheres the line
    You burn bridges
    You're breaking down dams"


    I love the way the 'telling lie, after lie. After lie, but where's the line?' part is broken up.

    Anthony's voice sounds amazing in this song.

    General CommentI really like this song. Good opener for the new CD. It reminds me of The Movielife for some reason.

    General CommentIt probably reminds you of The Movielife because the guest vocalist- Vinnie Caruana from I Am The Avalanche- was The Movielife's lead singer (he formed IATA after TM broke up).

    Nice opener, and it might not even be one of the best songs on the album. I d/l an advance copy, and the album is really, really, really good, it'll probably be one of the best releases this year. Beatz would be proud, may he RIP.

    General CommentI just listened to Bayside because they were touring with Anberlin, and I wanted to see what all the hype on purevolume was about. About 2:06 into the song I found out. The guitar solo totally blew me away. I've been playing forever changed solos and learning their stuff recently, and I thought IT was creative.....I hadn't heard bayside yet, obviously. The solo freakin makes me want to quit playing the guitar.
    The lyrics are pretty cool, I don't like his voice that much, though it does sound pretty cool and really good in some places. Good song, though.
