THE PAST

WELL EVERYBODY’S GOT ONE
THEY CARRY IT ALL THE TIME
WE MIGHT TRY TO LAY IT DOWN
BUT IT’S WITH US ALL OUR LIVES
A CONSTANT COMPANION
THAT WE LIVE AND LEARN FROM
SOMETIMES IT’S HEAVY AS
THE BARREL OF A LOADED GUN
IT CAN BE HELL
BUT WE ALL HAVE

A PAST
THAT WE JUST CAN’T OUTRUN
THE PAST
IT’S FOREVER AS THE SUN
AND EVEN THOUGH IT’S GONE TODAY
IT’S HERE TO (‘TIL THE) LAST

SOMETIMES IT’S A BATTLEFIELD
WHERE THE WAR IS FOUGHT INSIDE
WHERE THE GHOSTS OF YESTERDAY
ARE (VERY MUCH) ALL STILL ALIVE
BUT YOU KNOW GHOSTS CAN’T KILL YOU
THEY’RE THERE TO SHAKE YOUR BED
AND IF YOU LET THEM
YOU’LL BE MESSING UP YOUR HEAD
BY YOURSELF
CAUSE WE ALL HAVE

THEY SAY THE FUTURE IS WRITTEN IN THE STARS
BUT THE HARD TERRAIN OF YESTERDAY
MAKES US WHO WE ARE
