"Life In Vain" as written by and Daniel Johnson....
Don't want to be free of hope
And I'm at the end of my rope
It's so tough just to be alive
When I feel like the living dead
I'm giving it up so plain
I'm living my life in vain
And where am I going to?
I got to really try
Try so hard to get by
And where am I going to?
I don't know where is up or down
And there ain't any love left around
Everybody wearin' a frown
Waiting for santa to come to town
You're giving it up so plain
You're living your lives in vain
And where are you going to?
You've got to really try
Try so hard to get by
And where are you going to?
Flip on your TV
And try to make sense of that
If we were all in the movies
Maybe we wouldn't be so bored
We're giving it up so plain
We're living our lives in vain
And where are we going to?
You gotta really try
Try so hard to get by
And where are you going ?
Goodbye, goodbye...

    General Commentthis song is so sad, and so damn lovely, but there's hope here. he's trying to wake up, to wake everybody up: where are you going to?! sometimes "it's so tough just to be alive", you don't make a conscious choice about where you're going. but you should, otherwise you might be going there in vain.

    General CommentI think this song is about, how people get depressed and give up easily. They dont realize that with alittle effort they will see little changes to get them on track again.
    I love the line:
    "I dont know where is up or down,
    and there aint any love left around
    everybody wearin a frown
    waiting for santa to come to town"
