DEAD END ROAD

© 2013 Diana Rasmussen
What do you do,
when he just walks out?
And goes back to the hell,
where you pulled him out?

What do you do,
when he just walks out?
And goes back to the hell,
where you pulled him out?

Booze and drugs have called to him.
and he’s followed them again.
As he’s flirting with death,
walking on a dead end road.
Yes he’s flirting with death,
walking on a dead end road.
on a dead end road.

(instrumental break)

He takes all the money,
and turns off his phone.
Disappears for days,
will he make it home?
He is dancing with the Devil,
On a dead end road.
Yes he’s dancing with the Devil,
on a dead end road.

How am I supposed to pay the bills?
And what do I tell the kids?
My life right now is shattered glass,
living on a dead end road.
My life right now, is shattered glass.
and I’m living on a dead end road.

What do you do,
when he just walks out?
And goes back to the hell,
where you pulled him out?
My life right now, is shattered glass. x3
and I’m living on a dead end road.

[Jesus said, “I tell you most solemnly that anyone who chooses a life of sin is trapped in a dead-end life and is, in fact, a slave. A slave is a transient, who can’t come and go at will. The Son, though, has an established position, the run of the house. So if the Son sets you free, you are free through and through. (John 8:34-34 MSG)
Reach Out to God
“Still, if you set your heart on God
and reach out to him,
If you scrub your hands of sin
and refuse to entertain evil in your home,
You’ll be able to face the world unashamed
and keep a firm grip on life, guiltless and fearless.
You’ll forget your troubles;
they’ll be like old, faded photographs.
Your world will be washed in sunshine,
every shadow dispersed by dayspring.
Full of hope, you’ll relax, confident again;
you’ll look around, sit back, and take it easy.
Expansive, without a care in the world,
you’ll be hunted out by many for your blessing.
But the wicked will see none of this.
They’re headed down a dead-end road
with nothing to look forward to—nothing.”  (Job 11:13 MSG)

  1. Wow, very poignant! God is good, He is good, He is very, very good 🙂 Thank God though sometimes I may feel like I’m on a dead-end road, I am not anymore. Thanks for sharing!
