"The Past" as written by and Christofer Drew....
And I sing songs about the past
And how I was raised and I was thrown out on my ass
'Cause I didn't care about going to school
And I saw the look in her eyes
My mother nearly cried when I told her that I wanted to go
Just to prove them wrong

I've been smoking cigarettes since I was only fourteen
Just to find an escape from this town that was so mean to me
And I sing songs about the friends
The way we grew up and all the loose ends we used to laugh
'Cause I didn't give a damn

And I saw the look in my brothers eyes
When I told him I was leaving
He couldn't help but despise me
He wanted out his whole life

I've been smoking the green since I was merely sixteen
Just to find an escape from this town that was so mean to me
I sing songs about the past I plead for relief
This town won't recede all the things I wanted
The things I needed I'll beg and I'll beg

I 'm down on my knees mama oh mama
Let me please leave I plead for relief
This town won't recede all the things I wanted
The things I needed I'll I ever wanted was love
