A Thing Of The Past

from BETWEEN US, Vol. 2: ME by Stephen Bard



Those men over there have a brand new machine
Sleek and it's smooth, ain't like nothing I seen
This thing I got here, well it's lost most its sheen
God knows it won't take me that fast
And they're coming up over the hill with their plans
Shouting about progress and making demands
Where once was a field a city now stands
My pa said the frontier was something incredibly vast
Now it's a thing of the past

Well he waited 'til every penny was spent
Said the new trend would pass and the storm would relent
Took it off of the shelf and out back he went
All I heard was a lone shotgun blast
Some people can see it before it arrives
Others resist for what's left of their lives
The ones who embrace are the ones who survive
And why is a question that wasted his breath when he asked
Now he's a thing of the past

Oh change is the way of the world
And you know that it's just because
But how do you avert it when you know you prefer it
The way you remember it was?

We carried the stones that stood in our way
Never knew why there were so many each day
You'd think it'd get lighter the longer you stay
'Til you're crushed under all that's amassed
Now I'm lost at a crossroads searching for clues
How to bypass these black holes that fill up with blues
Man I thought I were winning, no way we could lose
Could've sworn it was real
Could've sworn it was going to last
Now it's a thing of the past
