A Guy Who Loves Music
The passion envoked by Bruce during this acoustical rendition is very moving. Just a coupla cents worth.

"Pacing the Cage" - Bruce Cockburn (The Charity of Night)
Thank you, Bruce, for painting honestly the poignant emotion of weary restlessness of our sunset...when the pointlessness of mankinds' seemingly endless struggle, at times, becomes just too much to endure. Will we ever learn? Well, I hope...I hope...
