How long can you be walkin' on eggshells and breathe in thin air?
Get yourself ready for departure when you're already there
Longer than the wall of China, longer than longin' for love
Longer than your pantomime when the audience is bored
How can you tip toe to the exit with your tapping shoes on?
Listen to yourself when your cell phone rings and the radios on?
Longer than your hair in the 80s, longer than the long run
Longer than the longest winter, longer than long
How can you dance on the battlefield with your Sunday clothes on?
How long can you go along with this shit with a straight face on and on?
Longer than these walls of China, longer than you know what
Longer than the weakest picture, longer than long
