"That Was Then" as written by and Josh Joplin....
Jesus, the world is falling to pieces
Will you come back and be our hero and release us?
And if so, will you get your own show?
And we'll be saved and well-behaved
And you'll be famous

Here's to the future that was
Everything you thought it'd be but
Was it anything you thought of?
Here's to the future that was

Thomas, a new century is upon us
You were enlightened but you weren't very honest
I know it was a long time ago
And things change and people change
And both have changed us

Here's to the future that was
Everything you thought it'd be but
Was it anything you thought of?
Here's to the future that was

Samuel, your son is quite a handful
His grades are bad, he can't do math,
And he tends to ramble
Our tests show that he's a bit slow
If he receives the help he needs
He'll ride the same bus

Here's to the future that was
Everything you thought it'd be but
Was it anything you thought of?
Here's to the future that was

    General CommentWhy is this listed as "The Future That Was" by the submitter? That is the correct title of the song. Well, to give an analysis, Everything seemed to have so much promise for Josh after Useful Music came out but things were taken down a notch for this CD. like the famous movie quote, he could have been a contender.
