Everybody Can't Go

 Everybody Can't Go


Jonathan Pitts


This is a tale about two good friends

They vowed that they'd stay, close to the end


One friend is wise, whom God has called out

One is a fool, who runs all about


The conversation real and based on what's true

Everybody can't go on the road that's for you



The Wise


My friend oh my friend, I believe I believe

The Lord has blessed and I should receive


I've worked and I've saved, I've sacrificed

To enjoy my days and have a good life


Maybe some travel, maybe a flight

I'm well prepared, perhaps for a wife


It's been hard to stay pure, temptation abounds

But I've decided for sure, to let God surround


My every step so now things look good

Since most everyday I did what I should


I prayed and I prayed, faithful I was

I stayed and I stayed in worship because


I knew by His word that I could retain

All of His blessings by calling His name


My friend oh my friend come join me right now

The blessings are great and I'll show you how


You can change your whole life by leaning on Him

Now walk with me friend, on this path you will win



The Foolish


Of what do you speak oh great friend of mine

Why sacrifice? You're just wasting time


Come down my way, it's fun, you will see

We can pray later, come and join me


Why save and prepare, that's stupid my friend

Enjoy your life, spend till the end


Why would you wait, when you can have all of this

Women just love you – they'll do what you wish


Lean over here, relax just a bit

Not a thing to regret, don't fall to your wit


You think way too much saying "Do this and do that"

You should come live! Come down this path.



The Wise


I don't know friend, my Word tells a tale

Of revels and fools, who ran and then fell


Perhaps you should stop, pause and come think

You don't see further? Tomorrow you'll sink


You'll fall in a ditch, a snare and a hole

Your life will not prosper, you'll be eaten whole


Your lack of discipline will kill you for sure

Your lack of restraint will make you impure


You're caught in a trap and I will not fall

I'll stay with God, on Him I will call



The Foolish


There you go preaching again and again

There is no difference between living and sin


Aren't we all sinners, fallen and such?

We're living by grace, so I'm given much


You are the fool to think that restraint

Will benefit you. A saint? No you ain't


I remember back, yes you and just me

We use to live, live life so free


So why are you acting like things have changed?

You're the same person, maybe deranged.


Get it together, stop being stale

Live just a little, come on now, exhale



The Wise


My friend, yes my friend, perhaps we won't see

Eye to eye on this issue, perhaps it is me


See I have grown and moved on in life

Since you have not, there will only be strife


My path is down this way, on with my Lord

Your path is another, the way I can't afford


My life is too dear to make such mistakes

I wish you the best giving all that it takes



The Final Message


This is so real, on so many fronts

People divided by needs versus wants


Some people settle, for right here and now

While other wait patiently for God to show how


Some take on life without restraint

Giving their gifts to whom they acquaint


Others are wise, they pray and they pause

Considering paths and seeking the cause


Each person's path is different for sure

But blind are all those who live life impure


Our choices our choices determine the end

Our steps and our strides determine who win


Some will give over, their lives unto God

Others will leave Him with a false nod


Some will fake and will front as if they are blessed

When in all actuality their lives are a mess


God makes the choice of who will ascend

To new levels high, to new places He'll send


There are so many blessings, to those who give up

Their lives for a cross, He'll raise you up


The good paths are many, this you should know

But the truth of the matter . . .
