Bayside-The walking wounded texty

28. 6. 2007

"The Walking Wounded"

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

A scared pair of 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, will we 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, will we 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, will we be ashamed or proud?

"They're Not Horses, They're Unicorns"

You're pulling out your teeth
And I'm the Novocaine you pump in your cheek.

That’s why I'm still around,
You've got blood running down your chin.
But you suffered peacefully (suffered peacefully)

She was a termite
Eating away at my roots.
I was just a lost soul
Who needed a home
I was filling a void with you

And I can't, can't wait
Till you've see see seen
What death and disgust
Have done to me
And I spent three years wishing
For two things,
that one day you'd break
And I'd get to see
How all the choices you've made
Would drive you insane
I wish we never met

As angry as I sound
That’s just the way I cover up, the way I feel.
I've been that way for years and years
Slave to broken hearts and sex appeal

She was a termite
Eating away at my roots.
I was just a lost soul
Who needed a home
I was filling a void with you

And I can't, can't wait
Till you've see see seen
What death and disgust
Have done to me
And I spent three years wishing
For two things,
that one day you'd break
And I'd get to see
How all the choices you've made
Would drive you insane
I wish we never met

She was a termite
Eating away at my roots.
I was just a lost soul
Who needed a home
I was filling a void with you

And I can't, can't wait
Till you've see see seen
What death and disgust
Have done to me
And I spent three years wishing
For two things,
that one day you'd break
And I'd get to see
How all the choices you've made
Would drive you insane
I wish we never met

"Duality"

Some days
I get crazed
I don't know why it's so irrelevant
I'll take deep breaths
And keep control, go on.

I've tried brave
And you've tried to save
I'm proud to keep it bottled up
I think I past my prime and lost my mind and I'm torn.

No telling what tomorrow holds.
Who let, who let this feeling die, when all I did was try?
Who let, you let this feeling die,
I can't get you out of my head, my head.
You're the flame that burns me so I know that I'm still alive.

Some say
It's all fate
but I say we control our lives
And if my destiny should outbest me then that's fine.
I make believe thrill and apathy co-exist in me fairly equally
The truth is doubts are all I've got to call mine.

No telling what tomorrow holds.
No telling what voice takes control.
Who let, who let this feeling die, when all I did was try?
Who let, you let this feeling die,
I can't get you out of my head, my head.
And you're the flame that burns me so I know that I'm still alive.

Is there anybody out there (anybody out there)
Is anybody calling (anybody calling)
What if what I say is really wrong?
Is there anybody out there (anybody out there)
Is anybody calling (anybody calling)
What if what you say is really wrong?
I'm not in control, I think I'm out of control

Who let, who let this feeling die, when all I did was try?
Who let, you let this feeling die,
I can't get you out of my head, my head.
And you're the flame that burns me so I know that I'm still alive.


"Carry On"

Don't confuse neediness for love
Because obsession never lasts and you're insane by a landslide
Never cared for you much until death do us part
You'll always be distressed

Carry on, with the guise of a sheep in a storm
You're a wolf and you're losing the ground that you're on
But hey hey, I've got things to say
I've lost control of life
I don't know how many times I've tried
To undo the knot you've tied
My face is red, and people change
I've changed for good this time

And I've followed you around
I've seen you all over town
I've got a laundry list telling me why
It follows to prove I was right

Carry on, with the guise of a sheep in a storm
You're a wolf and you're losing the ground that you're on
But hey hey, I've got things to say
I've lost control of life
I don't know how many times I've tried
To undo the knot you've tied
My face is red, and people change
I've changed for good this time

I just can't handle this, I'm just so scared of it
A challenge fit for a man when I'm just a kid
I'm all torn at the seams, just like you said I'd be
If this is love, then I don't want a part of it
I just can't handle this, I'm just so scared of it
A challenge fit for a man when I'm just a kid
I'm all torn at the seams, just like you said I'd be
If this is love, then I don't want a part of it

But hey hey, I've got things to say
I've lost control of life
I don't know how many times I've tried
To undo the knot you've tied
My face is red, and people change
I've changed for good this time

Carry on (carry on)
Carry on, carry on, carry on
Hey hey, carry on (carry on)
Carry on, carry on, carry on, carry on

"I And I"

I've got a stage and a mic
Which I use to say things you won't like
But I spent years thinking I was alone (Thinking I was alone)
Now I know, now I know, that I'm not, that I'm not
And I'm sharing that comfort with those
Who think that hope is lost

Oh and I'm so proud of where I am
I'm learning where the stand or to tread lightly

So hold back
Steadfast you've gotta breathe
And be content, just count to ten
Like all the experts say and if
The drugs don't seem to work
Then they've got a padded room for you
To get your just desserts.

If I could chose my own name
I'd chose something that's bold and fits
Like anger, aggression, or cunningly brash
By the skin of my teeth but with timing and class

Oh woe is me (Oh woe is me)
Oh woe were us (Oh woe were us)
But not anymore we stand up for ourselves
We're like captains at war, we'll get followed to hell

Oh and I'm so proud of where I am
I'm learning where the stand or to tread lightly

So hold back
steadfast you gotta breathe
And be content, just count to ten
Like all the experts say and if
The drugs don't seem to work
Then they've got a padded room for you
To get your just desserts.

I and I, we're taking control of our lives
I and I, we're taking control of our lives
I and I, we're taking control of our lives
Everything's alright
I and I, we're taking control of our lives
I and I, we're taking control of our lives
I and I, we're taking control of our lives
Everything's alright

So (So) hold back
Steadfast you've gotta breathe
And be content, just count to ten
Like all the experts say and if
The drugs don't seem to work
Then they've got a padded room for you
To get your just desserts.

"Choice Hops And Bottled Self Esteem"

Last call, lights on
Pull your faces off the bar
Go to church cause you need a good cleansing
Of body mind and soul
I never thought it possible
I think I fell in love with someone worse than me
And I love you to death (love you to death)
I don't think I like you anymore

The healing power of alcohol
Only works on scrapes and nicks
And not on girls in seedy bars
Who drown themselves in it

They say that scent is the strongest sense
Its tied to memories (tied to memories)
The stench of this place is almost as bad
As the memory tied to it

Tried to forget that sickening stench
With everything I got (everything I got)
You can't trust a heart
That was cold from the start
Waste your time on it

The healing power of alcohol
Only works on scrapes and nicks
And not on girls in seedy bars
Who drown themselves in it

You could play all day
And tell your friends that everything's alright
The truth is that your heart collapsed two years ago tonight

Should thank your lucky stars
For all the times you've been ashamed
You'll learn more from the harder times
Then times that you've been vain
The lesson learned is priceless gain if you can take the sting
You threw away your friends as if drinks were all the friends you need

The healing power of alcohol
Only works on scrapes and nicks
And not on girls in seedy bars
Who drown themselves in it

You could play all day
And tell your friends that everything's alright
The truth is that your heart collapsed two years ago tonight

(The truth is that your heart collapsed two years ago tonight)


"Head On A Plate"

Breathe kids, the mold is getting old
It'll be gone any day
The hipster empire of tomorrow
Will fall to the common kids of today

With tied wrists we're under their control
With fists clenched, we're taking on the world
I write down words with cathartic intentions
But they spawn revolutions of minds

They’re asking for my, my head on a plate
They’re asking for my, my head on a plate

I'm really, really not
That conceited I swear I'm not
I'm just trying to bring
Music back to music
I define up and coming
They already came up and went

I'm loose lipped now shaking back and forth
Problems fixed, I'm pouring out my soul
I find the right words to express myself
Instead of fitting round pegs in round holes

What a lovely day for a symphony
Full of honesty and integrity
So take this for what it’s worth
Originality's not a curse

They’re asking for my, my head on a plate
They’re asking for my, my head on a plate

I'm really, really not
That conceited I swear I'm not
I'm just trying to bring
Music back to music
I define up and coming
They already came up and went

They’re asking for my, my head on a plate
They’re asking for my, my head on a plate

I'm really, really not
That conceited I swear I'm not
I'm just trying to bring
Music back to music
I define up and coming
They already came up and went

BAYSIDE LYRICS

"Dear Your Holiness"

Hey mom, daddy left me here alone
Someone save me, someone save me
Hey god, I'm out here on my own
So now will you save me now

I think its funny you've been quiet for so long
When you're quiet no one proves you wrong
And dear your holiness
Your army's safe and sound
Down here dying for you

And I don't know how they found me, found me here
And I don't know how they found me, found me here

Maybe you can trick a lot of them
Maybe if you fool the best of them
The rest will come around

We're all scared
So they dressed you up in all these
Different names
I've gotta find peace with myself
Before I give you all
Before I give you anything at all

I think its funny you've been quiet for so long
When you're quiet no one proves you wrong
And dear your holiness
Your army's safe and sound
They're down here dying for you

And I don't know how they found me, found me here
And I don't know how they found me, found me here

Maybe you can trick a lot of them
Maybe if you fool the best of them
The rest will come around (around)

Been thinking that there's something more
And that you'd come down and you tell me yourself
Now I realize its just a waste of time
Another penny thrown down the well

And I don't know how they found me, found me here
And I don't know how they found me, found me here
And I don't know how they found me, found me here
(Dear your holiness, army's safe and sound)
And I don't know how they found me, found me here
(Dear your holiness, army's safe and sound)

Maybe you can trick a lot of them
Maybe if you fool the best of them
They'll come around
"Landing Feet First"

If our world falls down tomorrow
You be sure I'll be there with a net
To catch the pieces falling
And I was always there
And I was always there
I was always there but you just
never knew where

Ay oh, ay oh, I hope you weren't waiting long
I hope this night makes up for time lost
Ay oh, ay oh, feels like I met you years ago
And we're picking up right where we left off

I've considered what I'd be like
if the ocean poured in
From both of the coasts
And we set sail to find out
Just where our boat would go

But I don't think that I'd want to know
Cuz it would just make time
So I could see your smile
With our brand new life in tow

Ay oh, ay oh, I hope you weren't waiting long
I hope this night makes up for time lost
Ay oh, ay oh, feels like I met you years ago
And we're picking up right where we left off
Right where we left off

And if I'm on the road
For another thousand years or so
I hope you know a part of me is at home
And I traded brick for straw
in the house I built around my heart
So when you came it wouldn't be so tough
No "huff and puff" could dismantle us
No "huff and puff" could dismantle us

Ay oh, ay oh, I hope you weren't waiting long
I hope this night makes up for time lost
Ay oh, ay oh, feels like I met you years ago
And we're picking up right where we left off
Right where we left off


"Thankfully"

That's just like me when everything's gone wrong
To latch onto something even less stable, less good
I needed an anchor for my sinking ship
It's just like me to attach it to my heart instead

I think this was a test
To see how long I could hold my breath
I understand, but I gotta remind myself
That even at my worst I can keep my head
Alone I stand
United we fall apart
One union under God
But not for long, thankfully

That's just like me when everything else fails
To go for the gold, the unattainable goals
Enough's not enough when you're beat to the floor
As if heartache's not heartache enough anymore

I think this was a test
To see how long I could hold my breath
I understand, but I gotta remind myself
That even at my worst I can keep my head
Alone I stand
United we fall apart
One union under God
But not for long, thankfully

When we were young we never cared
And now we're scared of jumping in
Like we've forgotten how to swim
But if we try and if we tread
then we can teach ourselves again
'Cause it's worth the chance we take
When we were young we never cared
But now we're scared of jumping in
Like we've forgotten how to swim
But I think that we should try and we should tread
'Cause if we never take another dip again
We'll never know the joy that failure brings

I understand, but I gotta remind myself
That even at my worst I can keep my head
Alone I stand
United we fall apart
One union under God
But not for long,
One union under God
But not for long, thankfully


"A Rite Of Passage"

Cut, cut, cut, cutting myself down to pieces
Too hard on myself it would seem
That everyone could see my self-worth but me

I'll take a stand devise plans
Figure it out
I'll take my cuts and stitch them up
With sutures of pure cement and
And I've realized

There's no right way to go
So what if I'm a sinner
I've got black spots on my liver
And cancer grown on both my lungs
We take everything we know
About ourselves and put them in
A diary in a firing
Scrutiny blown on me now
I think I'm ready to go

Back, back, back, back to the crooner in question
I sure hope you all like my songs
Well maybe I put too much talk in my rhymes
And melodies so stunning brainwashing minds
From day one I took pride in my
Pure and honest intentions
And I've realized

There's no right way to go
So what if I'm a sinner
I've got black spots on my liver
And cancer grown on both my lungs
We take everything we know
About ourselves and put them in
A diary in a firing
Scrutiny blown on me now
I think I'm ready to go

And I've realized
That I don't wanna be judged no more

And I've realized
There's no right way to go
So what if I'm a sinner
I've got black spots on my liver
And cancer grown on both my lungs
We take everything we know
About ourselves and put them in
A diary in a firing
Scrutiny blown on me now
I think I'm ready to go...

I think I'm ready to go!
"(POP)Ular SciencE"

Nothing feels right,
But my fake smiles paint pictures like everything's fine.
Sheep like what they're told,
So they've got spindles spinning bad songs into gold.
And who decides what's wrong or right to like?

When the puzzle pieces twist,
And seem like they won't fit their match,
I'll be waiting, I'll be waiting.
All the "best" songs,
What's so "best" about 'em?

I thought I was part of something more,
But more money, less substance, more demand.
And I've heard great songs that no one understands.
You can't lay bricks on wet cement or build castles out of sand.
But who decides?

But when the puzzle pieces twist,
And seem like they won't fit their match,
Then I will try and try again,
And hope that someone understands.
I'll be waiting, I'll be waiting.

And they can't say they love you,
But it still won't change a thing,
'cause the tides may turn tomorrow
And I won't be there to look.

I can say -
I've got to say -
Dollar by dollar, your soul gets smaller,
Trending what we fought to make ours.

They don't care about,
They don't care.
It's a good thing bad trends fade away.
It's so much cooler in the shade.

They don't care about,
They don't care.
We give in nightly to our addiction.
A self-afflicted public crucifixion.

They don't care about,
They don't care.
Dollar by dollar, your soul gets smaller,
Trending what we fought to make ours.

They don't care about,
They don't care about,
They don't care,
They never cared.
