"Here's to the Past" as written by Jeremy Wade Mckinnon, Joshua Steven Woodard, Neil S Westfall, Thomas H Denney Jr. and Alexander Thomas Shelnutt....
Let's all think back on what brought us here
This is my grasp on what is real
Don't tell me how I feel
With all that's passed I can't relate with myself from day to day
Why does everything seem so far away to me?
There's no turning back from here
I've got to get away from everyone who's left

I'll tell the saddest story of how we made it through this last year
They said we'd walk away
You'll never make it if you can't speak for yourself
They said we'd fade away

We've all been down this path before
You're trapped in this town
And it wears you down
When we leave today then maybe you'll understand
This constant struggle isn't always in the palm of my hand

I'll tell the saddest story of how we made it through this last year
They said we'd walk away
You'll never make it if you can't speak for yourself
They said we'd fade away

This man will stand the test of time

    General CommentThe first time I listened to this I thought when Jeremy says "Saddest story" he was saying something about Thomas Edison.

    Also, it's "palm of my hand" not pain. How do I edit the lyrics?
