"Wounded" as written by and Stephan/cadogan Jenkins....
The guy who put his hands on you
Has got nothing to do with me
And the bruises that you feel will heal
And I hope you'll come around
Cause we're missing you
And you used to speak so easy
Now you're afraid to talk to me
It's like walking with the wounded
Carrying that weight way to far
Concrete pulled you down so hard
Out there with the wounded
We're missing you
Well I never claimed to understand what happens after dark
But my fingers catch the sparks at the thought of touching you
When you're wounded
Let me break it down till to force the issue
We miss your face and you know we wish you
Would come back down to the Dalva Bar
You tell them, that's just my battle scar
I wanna kiss you
And knock 'em down like we used to
You're the marigold
Till you're walking down shaking that ass again
Then you walk on, baby, walk on, you walk on
On and on
You're an angel in the pit with her hands in the air
And we're missing you
Now it's fall, and your shoulder's get tighter
Nervous flicks on the lighter, boots
Your pissed off poets, your women's groups
And the friends with you, we should have known this fool
Well I guess we missed the mark
Still my fingers catch the sparks at the thought of
Them touching you
Now you're wounded
Let me break it down till I force the issue
You never come around, and you know we miss you
Well nobody took your pride away
I say, that's something people say
Back down the bully to the back of the bus
Cause it's time for them to be scared of us
Till you're yelling, how we living cause you got the ball
Then you rock on, baby, rock on, you rock on
On and on
You're a summer time hottie with your socks in the air
Screaming I won't care, baby, I don't care, no
You say you don't know
You say you can't grow (you're the marigold)
All I know is we're missing you, you
You say you don't know
You say you can't grow (you're the marigold)
All I know is we're missing you
Show up wounded

    "Back down the bully to the back of the bus
    Cause it's time for them to be scared of us"

    The singer is trying to convince this girl to come out of hiding and resume her life. But I think he's also telling her how angry he is with whoever assaulted her. He wishes he could have stopped it and he also wishes he could make them pay

    General CommentThis has to be the most amazing CD i own, Stephen and the boys are fucking geniuses, and this CD represents their best work. I must have listened to this song a million times my freshman year in High School, and to me it's one of those CD's that when you listen to it, takes you back to a completely different time. There have been very few CD's that can have that effect on me
