Keeping fascism at bay in America is both a thrilling and sobering experience. I wanted to offer both sentiments in this track. First, you will hear the exultant cacophony of Flatbush, Brooklyn as I recorded it in the moments immediately following the announcement that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris had defeated Donald Trump on Saturday, November 7th, 2020. Next you will hear a somber reflection on walking out of darkness and tentatively embracing light, though it seems foreign and impossible to behold. Both experiences are true.


See the sun on the valley
It's been a while
We walked through the night
It starts with your fingers
Remembering how
To reach for the light

Was it always there?
