As I walked across the bridge
With a backpack cross my shoulder blades
The Everglades below the wooden cracks

You had offered up a ride
So I might not get accosted by
The watery slide

But I said no I'd rather not
Said no I'd rather not step in

As I left my home I cried
And a substituted figure tried
To reconcile the things I'd left behind

You had opened up the door
And made a place where I could sit inside
And fortify

But I said no I'd rather not
Said no I'd rather not step in

I'm on my own
Now no ones been invested in
How no one knows what's best for him

I'm on my own
When no ones left to light the load
Then so one goes to lift alone

I'd like to embrace it all

Have I made this or is it
That I've been made?

    Correct lyrics:

    As i walked across the bridge
    With a backpack cross my shoulder blades
    The everglades below the wooden cracks

    You had offered up a ride
    So i might not get accosted by
    The watery slide

    But i said no i’d rather not
    Said no, i’d rather not
    Said no, i’d rather not step in

    As i left my home i cried
    And a substituted figure tried
    To reconcile the things i'd left behind

    You had opened up the doors
    And made a place where i could sit inside
    And fortify

    But i said no i’d rather not
    Said no, i’d rather not
    Said no, i’d rather not step in

    I'm on my own,
    I'm on my own,
    I'm on my own,
    I'm on my own

    Now no ones been invested in
    How no one knows what's best for him

    I'm on my own,
    I'm on my own,
    I'm on my own,
    I'm on my own

    When no ones left to light the load
    Then so one goes to lift alone

    I'd like to embrace it,
    Like to embrace it,
    Like to embrace it all

    I'd like to embrace it,
    Like to embrace it,
    Like to embrace it all

    Have i made this or is it
    That i've been made?
