"Pay The Toll" as written by and Adam M Green....
I had to pay the toll
Cut loose on an uptown stroll
How do you need me so much
No amount of love could satisfy you

I had to cut the cheese
I'm outta luck so I thankyou please
How do you need me so much
No amount of love could satisfy you

Media man ain't gonna give enough
Medicine man you need to fill it up
How many drugs does it take to find something to do

I made love til the breaking balls
How could you fake it when the cage, it calls
How do you need a hotel
So big enough house for anybody else

And I'm off the wall
So crazy in a vacant stall
Maybe you worry all the time
But no-one is to know what goes on between the lines

Any kind of love is a needle in the hay
When you get down there they need me day to day
How many drugs does it take to find something to say

Shake another baby, tell another lie
When you was gone I bawled the passerby
How many drugs does it take to get you out of my mind yeah?

No amount of hate get faded on the shelf
Any kind of love finds anybody else
How many drugs does it take to find something to do
Everybody, it takes two

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. I think it's a love song, mos def. Just a love song the way that Adam would write one.

    I think this line is really:

    'Cause no one has to know what goes on between the lines

    My Opinion"How could you fake it when the cage, it calls?"

    This line specifically speaks to me. I wonder what he meant by it.

    I take everything and relate it to my experiences and my life, even if it is obvious that the meaning I take wasn't the intended meaning.

    Methadone. Recovery. Faking a happy life= "How could you fake it"

    Heroin. Apathetic bliss. Choosing your prison= "The cage, It calls"
