I’m not the only one
Staring at the sun
Afraid of what you’d find
If you took a look inside
Not just deaf and dumb
Staring at the sun
Not the only one
Who’s happy to go blind

I’m reminded of the prescient lyrics of U2. These are from Staring at the Sun, a slow-burner off their criminally underrated Pop album. (That’s another post and an argument we can have anytime.)

The song was one of the first things I thought of when I saw this picture of President Trump, the leader of the free world, stepping out on his balcony and looking right into the sun during today’s eclipse.
