Wisdom isn’t free. It’s gained through the payment of little “fines” incurred along the way. These “speed traps” if you will, may come in the form of “measurements” such as grade point averages, credit reports, job status, health maintenance or they may include some sort of “set-back” e.g. lost love, divorce, homeliness, sickness, loss. Either way, we’re all on the road to somewhere and we’ll lay our money down eventually. “Fifty Dollar Fine” is a song about an awakening of sorts. The realization that they’re going to catch us. We all pay. But here’s the truth. It doesn’t matter. Nothing lasts forever. Hey, I wanna fly. — Mark Rogers
