You can survive with anger, but you can’t live with it forever.
There’s no anger ever in a spiritual. There’s always the dream of a hope of a better day coming. That God understands the troubles that I’m experiencing.
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.
I guess lyrically they’re similar because they’re talking about escaping the kind of misery that likes company. ‘The Last One Alive,’ for me, is very simple. It’s just about alienation, really, that causes anger.
