Default Serious thread: Do any of you ever identify with

Do any of you ever identify with some of the lyrics in this song or am I just getting older and more reflective?

So it's just me and that guy?

When I woke today suddenly nothing happened.



(Colin Hay was the lead singer and primary songwriter for the group "Men at Work" for any of you that remember the '80's.)

Colin Hay - Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

You've probably not heard it before. I came across it because some of his other songs popped up on one of my Pandora internet radio channels and I investigated him further. He wrote and performed "Who Can It Be Now?" and "Living in a Land Down Under" by Men at Work back in the day. He was the lead singer. I really enjoy his acoustic version of their '80's hit "Overkill" as well. Sometimes I'm just in an acoustic mood. (Ignore the videos because they were created by youtube users and have distracting visual themes)


And I enjoy this tune called "It's a Beautiful World"

I identify with these:




In the darkest tunnel it's nice to see a light
Not just a headlight
Like the one that's heading right for me
It would be nice if things could turn out right
Turn out right yeah
Don't think I'll ever see the day

I must have done something wrong
Or maybe pissed off god.

I think of Chinese food when I think of life
That's sweet and sour
My life is sweet as saccharine
You know 3 week old milk and grapes are not
Not the same, no
I am the one Johnny Carcinogen

I must have fucked with some witch
In turn she cursed me, cursed my life

At the end of the longest line
That's where I will always be
If you need to find me
Just go to the end of the longest line

But officer that was a yellow light
The light was red, son
Insubordination, reckless driving
I must be wrong this can't be right
I don't belong, this world is much to dangerous
For someone lacking luck like me

At the end of the longest line
That's where I will always be
If you need to find me
Just go to the end of the longest line
At the end of the longest line
That's where I will always be
At the end of the longest line







You know when you're sure
that no one gives a crap,
you're on the right track
It's a fact

And when you believe,
things are good
it's guaranteed
you're up your ***
It's a fact

Morons through
the world,
and it's shitty place
no one ever asked to be born
It's a fact

You know every time
you think you've got it right,
you're totally wrong
It's a fact

And when you really try
the efforts misapplied
or there's a catch
It's a fact

When you've got a sure thing,
you're sure to **** it up
It's one thing you can count on every time
It's a fact

What can you do?
Absolutely nothing
don't even try to amount to something
It will never work and Hitler is a jerk,
and soon we'll all be dead anyway
It's a fact
(you suck)

In five billion years
the sun will explode
It's in the bible
It's a fact

And no one will know
that we were ever here
It's a fact
It's a fact

So rest assured in knowing
that what you do don't matter
Some one can do it better anyway
It's a fact

It's a fact



and of course for my impatientness:

Once you have a kid, everything changes. You live for them, and not yourself. When that happens, your life has meaning.

When you finally go W2W, your life has meaning. Until then, you're just a breeder.

I understand that. I tried the "I'm going to my job now to not only support myself, but to make my child's life better" mind frame. It didnt work. I still hate my job and the fact that I continue to go there.

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

The point is not to breed, but to live for someone else. Married couples can have this same bond, with no children. You, however, will always be alone.

Kill yourself now, to avoid becoming old & desperate.
