The songs are collected from Ireland, Scotland, and England. Songs like Victor Jara, The Thirty Foot Trailer, The Reason I left Mullingar, The Sun is Burning, and The Workers Song all present manmade problems that have been accepted as part of everyday life. While Tank Park Salute, Night Visiting Song, and Spencer The Rover reveal the personal upheaval that must be accepted by every individual.

Tully has penned three of the songs on the album conveying a similar message. The first song is Rise Up, calling the Irish people to work together to make better political decisions and reach out for a better way to live. The song Little Gadfly highlights the life and death of the classical philosopher Socrates. The third song, The Fracking Song, currently on release as a single, warns of the long-term dangers of fracking.

The album was recorded and mixed over 4 days in 'Jealoustown' Studio, County Meath by Brian Kennedy's guitarist Stuart Gray, who features on a couple of the tracks. It was mastered in London by Pete Maher who has worked with U2, Damien Rice, and Katy Perry. Production is kept to a minimum using only guitars, 5-string banjo and vocals to emphasise the story in each song.
