Browsing through some songs trying to find something for the prompt words I came across this one. I’d not heard it before, but I like it a lot.

There were some interesting facts mentioned in the Wiki article about this song, too.

From a Wiki article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Past_(Sevendust_song)

Florida TV station WFTV-Channel 9 reported that Sevendust’s song “The Past” was played repeatedly by Casey Anthony, who has been charged with first-degree murder in the disappearance of her daughter, Caylee while she was out on bond. The track carries this lyric: “Beneath the water that’s falling from my eyes, Lays a soul I’ve left behind.” The song was also apparently a topic of discussion on “Nancy Grace“, a nightly current affairs show on CNN’s Headline News hosted by Nancy Ann Grace, an American legal commentator, television host, and former prosecutor.

Sevendust has issued the following statement regarding the matter, “After hearing the news that our song “The Past” was a topic of discussion on the Nancy Grace show yesterday, we would like to elaborate. The song was written as a song of hope. A song with positive message. To look back on your life and reflect and to feel good about getting through the rough times that everyone goes through, the roller coaster of life, so to speak.” Also they added, “We regret that we’ve been linked to the horrible subject involving the disappearance of little Caylee Anthony. Most of us have children and have been saddened by the story from the beginning.”[2]

Beneath the water
That’s falling from my eyes
Lays a soul I’ve left behind
The edge of sorrow was reached but now I’m fine
I’ve filled the hole I had inside
I’ll pray it doesn’t scream my name
So I light a flame and let it breathe
The air that kills the shame
I’m up
I’m down
Like a roller coaster racing through my life
I’ve erased the past again
A risky morning
I feel like I’m alive
I can’t believe I’ve made it through this time
The edge of sorrow I lived in for some time
(Lived in for some time)
Has left the hole I have inside
The burden is I try my hate
Was the last thing I ever felt
Or thought I could escape
I’m up
I’m down
Like a roller coaster racing through my life
I’ve erased the past again
I’m up
I’m down
Like a roller coaster racing through my life
I’ve erased the past again
You let me in then broke me down
The difference is this time around
I will not let you see me try
I’m up
I’m down
Like a roller coaster racing through my life
I’ve erased the past again
I’m up
I’m down
Like a roller coaster racing through my life
I’ve erased the past again
Erased the past again now
Erased the past again
Beneath the water
That has fallen from my eyes
