  • Lyrics
  • MGMT close their Little Dark Age album with this slow-moving psych-rock jam. The song contains some pointed lyrics.

    The joke's worn thin
    The king stepped in
    Now we'll see who is who


    MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden explained to Rolling Stone, "that's pretty much directly about Donald Trump becoming president."
  • VanWyngarden insisted the album is largely positive. "We called it Little Dark Age because that's hopeful," he said. "It's a little dark age. And we ended the album with 'Hand it Over' because it envisions an end to all of this."
