In March of last year, I posted this old “Where the Hell is Matt?” video from 2012. A few days ago I came across it again, and I heard it in a whole new way. The chorus became an earworm that’s been with me ever since. I find myself humming it and silently singing the words:
We’re gonna trip the light, we’re gonna break the night
The lyricists couldn’t have imagined the current political situation in America when they wrote the song, but we will trip the light again; we will break the dismal night that has settled over America. We will. We will.
