  • Song #3 in my songs for The Walking Dead: The Game is inspired by the character Chuck. I borrowed his playing style when I wrote the guitar part for this song, and the chorus is based on Chuck’s warning to Lee that the living are just as dangerous as the dead. The verses make reference to key moments in “Long Road Ahead”. Can you spot them all? I dedicate this song to the good people at On The Level Gaming for inspiring me to write these tunes, and to these blogs I’ve been reading for their awesome Walking Dead content: thewalkingdeadempire, we-the-walking-dead, clementinetears, f***yeahthewalkingdeadgame, f***yeah-the-walking-dead, and the-walking-dead-art. You can stream my song on YouTube here, and you can download it for free here (just enter $0 as the price). Enjoy, everyone! — Kavalier

         Long Road Ahead

    I killed a girl to put her out of her misery,
    and I killed a man to put myself out of mine.
    Broken flashlight, dwindling supplies—
    the truth is hidden in chalk lines.

    It’s a long road ahead in a world full of dead.
    But all we need fear is the living.

    Cut your hair short so reaching hands
    slip off of you like water off a duck’s back.
    Take my gun, hold your breath, and aim.
    When it’s time to pull the trigger, don’t be afraid.

    Everyone’s road ends in the same valley,
    but some choose to get there in a hurry.
    Take a nip to forget what she’s done;
    it ain’t known for its finish—unlike us.
