Bridges

In a world of uncertainty

The night sky told us all to be patient

But when the ground started shaking

I wondered for how long?

 

But there's a place that I'd rather be

And there a voice deep inside of me

Saying the progress we are making

Is not progress at all

 

Into a world of promises, whoa

Is where we let ourselves be led

 

We built the bridges

We now sleep under

We framed the doorways

But may not pass through

The very same roads

That we now wander

The ones you pass us by on

We paved with our bare hands

Paved with our bare hands

 

A black cloud hovers over me

But without all this guilt I feel naked

Something about the way it

Wraps it's arms around

 

White snow covers everything

An angel watches over me praying

She asks me for a favor

"Catch me if I fall"

A rush of blood straight to the head

I wonder what this could have been

 

We built the bridges

We now sleep under

We framed the doorways

But may not pass through

The very same roads

That we now wander

The roads you pass us by on

We paved with our bare hands

Paved with our bare hands

Hey!

 

No I never meant to hurt you

No I never meant to do you wrong

I stood waiting but

A man said move along

 

We laid the tracks down

But now they've rotted

And like a runaway train

We brace for the crash

We were in love once

Have you forgotten?

And like a runaway train

Bearing down upon a gap

 

We built the bridges (brace for the crash)

(Built from their hypocrisy)

We built the bridges (brace for the crash)

(Built from their hypocrisy)

We built the bridges (brace for the crash)

(Built from their hypocrisy)

We built the bridges (brace for the crash)

And underneath their

Shadows we now live
