"A Year In The Past Forever In The Future" as written by and Kyle Bishop Shawn Magill....
This is a time in my life where everything is falling apart, and at the same time itÕs all coming together. Those summer days that I longed for never really were what I wanted them to be. Just like when beautiful people drive ugly cars. I'm hitting the road again with five of my best friends. We always seem to disagree, but I still enjoy their company. And when I leave I'll make you another mixed tape. Those singers always know just what to say. My throat's already hurting, and it isn't even the first day. The record sounds great, but for some reason I can't pull it off from day to day.

    General Comment I dunno why you people never notice the small time bands, grade is an exceptional band, and needs to be shown some interest. Well, as for this song, (there are two versons of it) it's about the begining of Grade. I think it was the first song they recorded was about a girl he loved. Five of his best friends are his band mates, beautiful people driving ugly cars are about how youth is beautiful, but at the same time kinda cheap.

    General CommentDefinately one of themost underappreciated bands in the hardcore/punk scene. I can't emphasis how great this band is. Buy their music fools!

    General Commentthe first time i ever heard this song it was practically a life changing experience. Sure, the excrement hit the air conditioning. But now that it's out of the way...

    General CommentThis dude screwed up the lyrics pretty bad...unless the other version is way different, but I have the one from under the radar. There's lots of words screwed up, and in the first verse he's missing a line.

    General CommentThere's like one added word. It's practically perfect... unless it was updated recently...

    Anyway, this song is excellent. It pretty much describes this time in my life.
