"The song was tripped off by a one-way dialogue between me and a street person. This old guy comes out speaking gibberish, but it turns out to be very prophetic. This song touches on the fact that with me and music, music was a salvation for me for a long time. I used to listen to blues artists when I was 15,16, 17 and there was a respect for tradition. The adage that if you forget the past then you're bound to repeat it". - Tom Cochrane
