    Bridges (UPDATES)

    OLD VERSION

    BRIDGES 060121 (w vocals)
    BRIDGES 060521 (rhythm section) - (skip to 1:03 - that's a pretty repetitive chord pattern for there being no other fx or instruments playing)

    The original mash-up got pretty popular - and to be honest, it frustrated me because I always thought this particular mash-up could have been so much better and that I had missed an opportunity. I had been focused on the wrong things before - trying to hit that ONE DRUM TRACK from New Divide (changed out for drum multi multis of WID) and a few other things that just weren't really working out for me. Part of the thing with these mash-ups is that I don't want them to lack substance. I always strive to choose songs that aren't just within a certain tempo range or key, but also have specific themes. This isn't about a conspiracy theory - it's literally a direct result of the Forer / Barnum effect. (Which is why EVERYBODY can relate to their lyrics - but combining songs that compliment each other contextually and lyrically was an absolute MUST.)

    A fire needs a space to burn
    A breath to build a glow
    I've heard it said a thousand times
    But now I know
    I'm swimming in the smoke
    Of bridges I have burned
    So don't apologize
    I'm losing what I don't deserve
    What I don't deserve

    I remembered black skies - The lightning all around me
    I remembered each flash - As time began to blur
    Like a startling sign - That fate had finally found me
    And your voice was all I heard - That I get what I deserve

    So give me reason - To prove me wrong
    To wash this memory clean
    Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
    Give me reason - To fill this hole
    Connect this space between
    Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies
    ...Across this new divide

    There was nothing in sight but memories left abandoned
    There was nowhere to hide - The ashes fell like snow
    And the ground caved in - Between where we were standing
    And your voice was all I heard - That I get what I deserve

    So give me reason - To prove me wrong
    To wash this memory clean
    Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
    ...Across this new divide

    [Jornada Del Muerto Synth Solo]

    You told me yes, you held me high
    And I believed when you told that lie
    I played soldier, you played king
    Struck me down when I kissed that ring
    You lost that right to wear that crown
    I built you up and you let me down
    So when you fall, I'll take my turn
    And fan the flames as your blazes burn

    And I told them - Nah, you don't know me.
    Lightning above and a fire below me
    You can not catch me, you can not hold me
    You can not stop, much less control, me.
    When it rains, it pours
    When the floodgates open, brace your shores
    That pressure don't care if it breaks your doors
    Say it's all you can take, better take some more!

    So you can tell them all, now:
    I don't back up, I don't back down
    I don't fold up and I don't bow
    I don't roll over, don't know how
    I don't care where the enemies are
    I can't be stopped, all I KNOW is go hard
    But don't forget how I got this far.
    I held myself up and LOVED my scars.

    For what I've done - I start again
    and whatever pain may come - Today this ends.
    I'm forgiving what I've done.
    I'll face myself - To cross out what I've become
    Erase myself - And let go of what I've done

    In every loss, in every lie
    Let go of what I've done
    In each regret and each goodbye
    I'm forgiving what I've done

    I'm swimming in the smoke
    Of bridges I have burned
    So don't apologize
    I'm losing what I don't deserve
    'Cause finding what you've got
    Sometimes means finding it alone
    And I can finally see your light
    When I let go.
