It totally makes a difference to a Bengali. He used to be able to write songs about the outsider to empathise with. This was different.It doesn't make a difference.
Panic was accused of the most violent racism.
Reel was accused of child abuse.
Obviously Bengali is an empathetic song - he's got the narrator saying don't blame me, don't hate me, which means he knows he's crushing the guy. What would the thought process be? Aye, I'll write a song about a really friendly person having his hopes dashed because I have no empathy with hopes being dashed???
