Sevendust – The Past lyrics

(Feat. Chris Daughtry)

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
[X2]

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
[X2]

Erased the past again now
Erased the past again

Beneath the water
That has fallen from my eyes

    Sure
    Light, truth, Real Love. That's what your music is about, right?
    Or was it something else Casey Anthony's warped spirit tapped into? Be glad, Sevendust, that you weren't found in a trash bag at 3 with dogs gnawing your bones and duct tape on your skull, with your flesh rotted away under Hurricane water in a place where animals were at least buried, not put in trash bags with duct tape. Wish you had the ability to know who you are serving. You think it's just yourself and your sick lust and narcissism, but think it over. Where do you want to spend eternity? With the killer of 3 year old Caylee Anthony?
