From the liner notes:
"Got to kick at the darkness til it bleeds daylight" is one of those lyrics that cuts through everything. It's a credo for life. It resonates through this entire project and it certainly resonates through Bruce's work. if there's one Canadian songwriter who typifies the word "independant", then it's Bruce Cockburn. Over the course of this project, we have all grown to appreciate how timeless Bruce's songs are and how much meaning they've had in our lives. And for a songwriter like Bruce Cockburn, we can think of no finer tribute.
