about

this song was nominated for a socan song of the year award in 2011

lyrics

oh he's drunk again
he's all punk rock again
now he's running with the scissors
got his hair cut off
now he's falling down the stairs again

there's a maze of lines
carved along his arms
now he's down in the alley
with his clothes half off
showing all the girls his charms

he can't help himself
he just hurts himself
it's all running away
can't get over the pain
of his childhood
so he's got something to prove
one of the walking wounded
what do you do
when you've tried everything
that you could

oh the moon is high
it's an all seeing eye
watching over this
colonial town
as the hard rain
is coming down
oh it falls in sheets
turns to ice as it hits the streets
and though he got no shirt
rolling down these rolling hills
aw, it don;t really hurt

now he's awake again
in a hospital room
and when he tears at the bandages
all underneath
the scars are in fresh bloom
so he curses the nurses out
as he takes the elevator down
weaving barefoot
through the traffic
in an open backed dress
running all the way downtown

he can't help himself
he just hurts himself
it's all running away
can't get over the pain
of his childhood
so he's got something to prove
one of the walking wounded
what do you do
when you've tried everything
that you could

now he's drunk again
he's all punk rock again
