Exactly. Anger is fine and expected and very healthy, but for f***’s sake. Don’t direct it at the bloody mourners, you absolute lunatic. It’s as if he’s trying desperately to annihilate his career and his reputation.
And strong point regarding Suffer Little Children. Sure, he wrote that song 40 years ago, but still. Hard to think it’s the same guy.
I sort of understand where he's coming from. Thinking a song like that is just a really odd choice to honour the dead yet thousands are singing away. Maybe having a go at 'peformative mourning' where he thinks they're more just there for the spectacle of a music gig than anything else deeper than that. Its a cynical view, but it is Morrissey here.
The lyrical decline is pretty immense though. He's really leaning heavily into not just shortened lyrics but almost identical verses save switching a couple of words around.
