Lyrics

They built me with hope
For the Ohio River
I stood silver and tall
Only one fatal flaw
Over thirty-nine years
They neglected my frame
I took more than my weight
Now a curse takes the blame

The day was a day
That was like any other
They punched out their timecards
And started their cars
Their minds pointed home
To the lives they had worked for
Their laundry and dinners
And halls filled with songs

I was engineered
With the tiniest flaw

I took forty-six down
With a tenth inch of steel
To their watery grave
They took all of me with them
Forty-six nightmares
And dreams are now shattered
Forty-six songs that will never be sung
Forty-six children lost
Forty-six mothers
Forty-six lovers and
Two empty graves

Forty-six nightmares
And dreams are now shattered
Forty-six songs that will never be sung
