Song: Be My Escape --Relient K
I’m begging You...to be my escape.
There’s a term used in prisons to refer to a felon who is walking from the cell to the death chamber. It’s called "dead man walking." For all intents and purposes, this person’s fate is sealed. Only a last minute call from the governor could stop the inevitable.
At one time, in a spiritual sense, all of us were "dead man walking"—some of us still are. The difference here is that we don’t have to wait for that last-minute call. We can make the call ourselves.
