"Random Acts Of Kindness" as written by Robert Peter Williams and Stephen Duffy....
For those about to die we salute you
For those of about to cry we love you
For those of us who live in fear
Of Happy Christmas and New Year
I raise a toast to you

And if it hurts to be so blind
Why don't you try being kind

They've decided to become
A little more proactive
Creep upon you while you sleep
And make you less attractive

Born without a spine
Why don't you try being kind

For those out drinking their mother's wake
You'll find a way to soldier on
For those whose love evaporates
I pray you find where you belong

Oh the words I have repressed
Are coming out today I guess
It's justice not respect I'm after
And that just leaves comtempt
For you all

I am just a simple man
With simple expectations
With deep regrets they're seldom met
God speed my generation

And with Crowley on my mind
I should try being kind

For those about to die we salute you
For those of about to cry we love you
For those about to die we salute you
For those of about to cry we love you

    General Commenti like this song. i think it's about unhappy people - "For those of us who live in fear/Of Happy Christmas and New Year" - not wanting a new year or to celebrate. and he's "saluting" them but the "we" rather than, say, "I", suggests they are others out there who feel the same. it's a message to people who feel alone and maybe suicidal.
    it's quite lovely anyway.
