Bridge to Nowhere (song)

Bridge to Nowhere (song)

"Bridge to Nowhere" is a rock song by Canadian musician Sam Roberts in a haunting 6/4 musical meter. It is the second single from Sam Robert's third album "Chemical City".

Its lyrics describe a troubled man dealing with everyday life, and its video reflects such.


The video itself is done in an interesting style, being solely in black and white and relying on computer animation for its setting. The video begins with Sam Roberts waking up in bed with a woman (who would appear to be his wife) and then following his venture to work as he ponders the workings of life. He sees police cars pass him as he walks to the train station, and sees them once more where an accident seems to have happened. He gets onto a futuristic locomotive which takes him to the downtown of the "Chemical City" where he goes to work in the biggest tower. He takes a long elevator ride up, looking at the people below him walking on their own paths as well. He listens to the company's boss (a woman partially hidden in shadows) until he leaves work and goes home to bed. He awakes once more and follows the same schedule to and from work, until his departure from work the second time, when the song quickens, and then slows down suddenly, and a a flash of light hits and the city is gone, leaving a beautiful valley which most likely stood there before the city's construction.
