Lyrics

My friend Larry was very beautiful, he was a high school champion
He played a Les Paul, he always stood tall
He was afraid of nothing
One night we went for a walk, all the way down south, high
We were the secret conscious of men
We were the key to the city
We tried every door just to see which one would open

We were on a long, we were on a long walk
We were on a long, we were on a long walk

At around 3 am, some hillbilly fuck with nunchucks outside the supermarket
He took off his shirt like he wanted to fight, like he was justice or dumbass version of it
Oh but Larry would not run, he said, "I know what this is, I'm not butter for any man's knife.
And if you run away, then you run away from your life"

We were on a long, we were on a long walk
We were on a long, we were on a long walk

You don't need to be brave if you can always outrun your foe
But if you run away then he's got you, and he'll never let you go

We were on a long, we were on a long walk
We were on a long, we were on a long walk
