"Freedom Bridge" as written by and Greg Barnett Eric Keen....
Amy was a waitress at the Fire Street Grill
Up route six eleven
She was slaving for the pill
Oxy's got her pupils pinned up
Junkie centerfold
With grey hairs and a death wish
She was twenty-two years old
Had it all, took the fall
Had it all, took the fall

Specialist Jeg, a much more honest man than you
Came back from the desert
Where he never found the truth
Now he screeches tires
Fills his head with alcohol
While the morbid, brown faces hang
Like portraits on the wall
Had it all, took the fall
Had it all, they took it all

Something happened on the way to hell
The new guard, they took my sister
Something happened on the way to hell
The old guard, they took my brother away
Something happened on the way to hell
The same greed, it took our parents
Something happened on the way to hell
The west wall, it took us with it

McTiernan was a good old boy
He cheated and he skimmed
"A favor for a favor
It can't be called a sin"
Some may see it different, and some don't see at all
When the papers started calling
He closed his eyes and took the fall
Had it all, took the fall
Had it all, took the fall

Now we're standing on the ledge
And we're looking at the ground
I feel my body breaking on the asphalt
Hear the sound
Red and blue lights screaming
Saying, "Step up off that ledge"
So we wrap our hearts up in our heads
And take the fall instead
Had it all, took the fall
Had it all, took the fall

Something happened on the way to hell
The new guard, they took my sister
Something happened on the way to hell
The old guard, they took my brother away
Something happened on the way to hell
The same greed, it took our parents
Something happened on the way to hell
The west wall, it took us with it
Something happened on the way to hell
The west wall, it took us with it
