Add To Cart

I was in my hometown of Charlottesville, VA on August 12th 2017, the weekend of the deadly 'Unite the Right' neo-Nazi 'rally'. Really, it was an orchestrated, pre-meditated street-battle attack, not a 'rally'. It was easy to see their violent intentions from the discussions on their online organizing boards. 
Five days later I wrote this song, the title referring to the eclipse that happened a few days after. That eclipse was such a fitting natural metaphor for what happened to our hearts that weekend.
