"The Toll" as written by and Peter B Hayes Robert L Been....
I'd never known her to cry
But this time is different for sure
She's shaking with tears in her eyes
As she picks up what's left of the night
The hope for a reason seemed pure
As we leave what's left on the wall

But oh how it's taken its toll
Oh how it's taken its toll
Everything's taken its toll
Everything's taken its toll

There was more then a break in the smiles
They rose and slowly they tired
As she turned and the moments were made
There were none that could prove where she lay
There's a calm in the stories now told
And the distance will always be home

And oh how it's taken its toll
Oh how it's taken its toll
Everything's taken its toll
Everything's taken its toll

Everything's taken its toll
It's a moment we carry alone
With a cause there's a cure for the soul
But oh how it's taken its toll
Oh how it's taken its toll

    General CommentI don't know what it means but whatever it is, it's incredibly sad. The first verse is so beautifully written and sung.

    General CommentI think this speaks about a girl who kills herself due sadness. The first verse explains how she does it. The second verse explains how she fell into sadness but nobody noticed it. The chorus explains how after many years everything finally stack up making it unbeareable. The last verse for me is just a thought from the singer, how life has meaning if you have a plan or goal but if you don't it just becomes maningless.
    A sad song.
