This song was 100%, without a doubt, written about the pandemic. A lot of us are working from home now, and the way in which the pandemic continues to affect us will be decided by the representatives who win this election. So we should vote for who we think will do the best job!

Billie's feeling optimistic about the future — we should, too! But in order to choose our future, we need to vote!
