Well it's been a long time
since I learned about the bridge
I try sneaking by
but it's my feelings that I pay with

TIRED OF GIVING, TIRED OF CARING
ON THE TOLLBRIDGE, I'M FORCED TO PAY MY WAY
SOME MAY TRY TO SLIDE RIGHT BY
THINKING LIFE'S JUST A FREE RIDE
I WANTED EVERYTHING FOR FREE
BUT I KNOW IT WILL NEVER BE

Have no money to pay with
and it seems that the bridge is closed
humble feelings, eating crow
better try another road

YOU HAVE GOT TO SHOW CONTROL
THERE'S SO MUCH YOU'VE GOT TO KNOW

As I cross the bridge I watch my step
"better get out of here"
gotta pay my dues, wanna earn respect
next time I hope that they don't refuse

    General CommentI love this song! Definately one of their best in my opinion. Anyway, i think that this song is abouting learnign that there are some dues that must be paid in life and trying to figure out a way to pay them to reach your goal. And that there's no way of getting out of paying.
