You know a song is sincere and amazing when you feel like crying every time you hear it.
A great, if very depressing, song. Used to listen to it all the time.
This is such a sad yet beautiful song. I also love Donnie Darko. Great movie.
I love this song so much <3 d•.•b
Gears of War :-)
When you hear this song ur like omg so depressing!! But actually, it's the truth. People need to learn this.
Whoa .... that is some depressing s**t. (Some of these comments, not the song)
Love this song. By far my favorite .. expresses me n how I feel about life
Awesome song. It describes me very well
Gears of War 3
@simona-lia I don't hate you. I like this version better than the original, too.
Every time I dream of my death I hav a bad day
Perfect song to sleep

RjD06: Just press thumbs down and it'll never play again on that station.
Can I get 2 thumbs (likes) for this 1 !?
I just found out I have a few acoustic neuromas (tumors between my brain & ear.) This song got me emotional. There's one person I wish I could talk to & I can't. She hates me... I hope I get the chance to talk to her one more time
DONNIE DARKO!!!
Worn out faces. I hate my life. So depressed.

This song kind of scares me...
This my life. I live it. Don't want to live anymore. I have had enough.

And I find it's kinda funny, and I find it's kinda sad. The dreams in which I'm dying are the best ones that I've had.
So beautifully sad. :")
The dreams in which I'm dyeing are the best I've ever had....

I love this song. I don't know about you guys but it's actually my favorite. Reminds me of my younger days and how I used to be happy. Not living in this mad world I live in today.
this song is really annoying to listen to when it pops up.
:' (
A lot better than the original

This is a mad world. Welcome to the 21st Century. Sadly, that's just the way it is. Good song!
Heard this song so many times on student-made PSAs in health class....

This song really makes me sad. :(
Gears of war.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

It's a mad world. I've know this since the day my grandfather died.
This ends Donnie Darko heososhajajj s h s h k a k s j s k l f j a k a l

Brings back the memories of the 1st commercial for GEARS OF WAR

Love it
