Q: Thoreau's man. Good song, but ... 1. "man of silent despair" - Supposed to be Thoreau? He wasn't. The mass of men were. 2. "carry my story to the grave" Again, Thoreau? It didn't. He lives on in book
A: Thanks for the question. I don't want to be the man of silent despair who takes his song to the grave. To me, that is who Thoreau's Man is... the ones who live in quiet desperation. To be honest, I want to be like Thoreau, not Thoreau's Man.
