Larry Walters was a man who saw his dream take flight
Have you ever been afraid but told you had to fight?
We all keep dangerous thoughts contained like gasoline
Larry took his bottle of hopes and opened it with his teeth
Take me with you when you fly away from here
Show me the truths that lie just beyond my fears
Larry Walters, how does it feel
When your fantasy becomes real
Larry Walters, is my earth still round?
Larry Walters, don't you ever come down
I used to sit up on the roof though terrified of heights
I grew to love my neighbor's dog who growled all through the night
If only I could fly away and finally touch the truth
I'd shiver in the stratosphere, I'd let go my balloons
I've seen your light but I can't break free of this 9 to 5
Hold the time, it's terra firma nine to life
