There is a bridge where my hope stands naked and afraid
Gazeing to the falls below
200 ft. of gravity's all that sepirates
From where my faith broke long ago

And its all I can do to keep from shouting "jump!"
And my dirtiest thoughts, start to laugh as they shove him off
And the echoing smack, will bounce off the gorges walls
And I'll finally get some sleep.

I'm just one tiny person
Where do I begin
When fighting a battle I don't think we'll win
I'm tempted to say "Fuck it" and turn my voice in
But that offers no dignity

So I'll turn my back on that spectacular job
Wrap my arms around hope, and drag his ass off
While he kicks and he screams I'll just quietly sob
"I still need you here with me"

'Cause my hope is the only thing left to cling to.
Our hope is the only thing to get us through.
My hope is the only thing left to cling to.

    General CommentThis song heavily personificates hope, the only thing you can "cling to" basically killing your hope is killing yourself.
