about

“WALKING WOUNDED” is the gory tale of a fast-living rock band, famous for sporting graphically painted body wounds at their performances.
But when band members mysteriously begin dying, one by one, of these same fake wounds--the frivolity ends. . .

The lyrics for these songs were written in the early 1990s by two screenwriters, Lillian Hara and Dorie Rush Taylor for their screenplay “WALKING WOUNDED.” Although they were close to a movie deal at one point, “WALKING WOUNDED” has not been produced as of yet.

The music is part punk, part funk, part ethereal, part blues. I added one instrumental track that seemed like it would be good incidental music for a soundtrack.

Hal Lieberman wrote the lyrics on the title track and J’Nae Fincannon delivers a huge soul punch singing “Love Is A Third Degree Burn.” That song also features New Orleans’s Steve Landon on lead guitar. And the bluesman on “Love Is Not The Answer” is my old band mate from Seattle, Casey James.

Track Name: Walking Wounded
LYRICS: WALKING WOUNDED

We’re the walking wounded
We’re the walking wounded

Don’t you know us
We’re the roll and rockers
The horror shockers
Can’t hide from us, cause we’re you!

We’re the walking wounded
We’re the walking wounded

On our face is what you feel
Come and look we’re real
Wear your masks righteous clowns
Faceless you bring us down

Paint your face
Choose your death
A brand new knife
A dead-on bullet
Pretty poison
Or flaming fire
It’s up to you
Up to you

We’re the walking wounded
We’re the walking wounded
Track Name: Paradise, the Sequel
LYRICS: PARADISE, the Sequel

On a lonely landscape
A table set for one
A spool of scrambled tape
The world is come undone

The sound of no love dying
In Paradise, the sequel
The sound of no child crying
In Paradise, the sequel

Stepping through a broken glass
She mirrored all my pain
There is no way to let it pass
I have my heart again

The sound of no denying
In Paradise, the sequel
The sound of once more flying
In Paradise, the sequel

The sound of no love dying
In Paradise, the sequel
The sound of no child crying
In Paradise, the sequel

In Paradise
Track Name: Love Is Not The Answer
LYRICS: LOVE IS NOT THE ANSWER

Love is not the answer, it’s the problem

Love is not the answer, it’s the problem

Love is not the way in, it’s the way out

Love is not the water, it’s the cold spout

Love is not the sure thing, it’s the old doubt

So don’t look for love

Let love look for you

And when you find it

Be sure to blind it

Love is not the answer, it’s the problem
Love is not the answer, it’s the problem

…the problem
…the problem
…the problem
…is love
Track Name: Love Is A Third Degree Burn feat. J'Nae Fincannon
LYRICS: LOVE IS A THIRD DEGREE BURN

Love, is a third degree burn
Love, is a third degree burn
Love, is a third degree burn
Love, is a third degree burn

Why won’t you ever-ever learn
There’s no escape, there’s no return

Love, is a third degree burn
Love, is a third degree burn

There ain’t no love, it’s just all lust
Fiery angel food, and crimson dust

Third degree, love’s a third degree burn
Third degree, love’s a third degree burn
Third degree, love’s a third degree burn
Third degree, burn, burn, burn
