There is no way to bypass it that I am aware of. If you don't have a computer with an already established trust relationship with the phone then you will need a new screen. You don't have to fully install the screen, just attach it to the logic board to allow you to tell the phone to trust the computer you have it plugged into.

Follow this guide here: iPhone 5 Display Assembly Replacement, to remove the broken screen and then just attach the new one (Or a borrowed one) onto the board. You will then be able to input your password.
