Lyrics

DEAD END (01-22-2012)

Words & Music by Gregory W. Irish

 

IT’S A TRIAL ON THE JOURNEY OF LIFE, AND HE’S TRYING OUT SOMETHING NEW.

NOW HE’S HEADING, DOWN A DEAD END, AND THERE’S NOTHING ELSE, WE CAN DO.

 

THROUGH ALL, OF HIS GROWING YEARS, 

HE MADE A LIVING, ON TELLING LIES.

AND EVEN THOUGH, HE IS HONEST NOW, 

HIS FAMILY HAS CUT ALL TIES.

 

IT’S A TRIAL ON THE JOURNEY OF LIFE, AND HE’S TRYING OUT SOMETHING NEW.

NOW HE’S HEADING, DOWN A DEAD END, AND THERE’S NOTHING ELSE, WE CAN DO.

 

THEY SAY HE’S BEEN TAKING, A LOT OF BOOZE AND PILLS,

NOW THEY’VE TAKEN OVER HIS CONTROL.

HE’S NOT IN CHARGE, OF HIS MIND NOW,

HE IS FALLING DEEPER, INTO THE HOLE.

 

IT’S A TRIAL ON THE JOURNEY OF LIFE, AND HE’S TRYING OUT SOMETHING NEW.

NOW HE’S HEADING, DOWN A DEAD END, AND THERE’S NOTHING ELSE, WE CAN DO.

 

HE GOT MAD, AND WENT ON A KILLING SPREE,

IN FOLSOM PRISON HE’LL DO ABOUT TWENTY YEARS.

HE’S HAD TIME TO PONDER, ABOUT WHAT HE’S DONE,

IT’S AMAZING HOW FAST THAT TIME, DISAPPEARS.

 

IT’S A TRIAL ON THE JOURNEY OF LIFE, AND HE’S TRYING OUT SOMETHING NEW.

NOW HE’S HEADING, DOWN A DEAD END, AND THERE’S NOTHING ELSE, WE CAN DO.

IT’S A TRIAL ON THE JOURNEY OF LIFE, AND HE’S TRYING OUT SOMETHING NEW.

NOW HE’S HEADING, DOWN A DEAD END, AND THERE’S NOTHING ELSE,

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE, THERE IS NOTHING ELSE, WE CAN DO.
