I tried to connect you between two worlds
Though the weight was just too much to bear
I wanted you to walk all over me
And instead you didn’t even have a chance.
Over the years my design has deteriorated
I thought I would advance until I realized
Corruption is superior.
My construction was meant to last 100 years
Though through negligence I lived in fear.
Little by little, inside I was crumbling
Soon, the cracks began to appear.
Someone noticed me in pain
Tried to help me and left a voicemail again.
At last, a response came much too late
I could not control my own fate.
I was left alone
The heavy toll on me
Could no longer be undone
I held on as long as I could
Though without a strong foundation of love
I could not stand still.
I was built much too fast
Without a support system to keep me alive
I had to breathe on my own
Before my cables were aligned.
In an instant I fell down
The concrete that seemed solid as a wall
Could not make it through the fall
My design had many imperfections
In the process I ended up not only hurting myself
The pain spread, unable to change my intention.
I broke down that day and took many lives with me.
Now I exist solely as a reflection
To be analyzed, cleaned up
Then soon forgotten.
Life can never be fully repaired
Because if I dared to say
That I was not responsible
You knew too well
That I would not survive at all.
I must live with the fact
I am only as strong
As the people behind me
Who will stand there beside me
Through every decision where I became bound
To hold up the lies and politics
That seemed to be common ground
No matter how strong I appeared to be
I am and always will be the broken bridge
Nothing can ever take that away from me
Now I am free.
