Life Is Hopeless

I came to a realisation about the apparent contradictions of the human psyche the other night - not a list of cynical observations, but more a dictation of our psychological tendencies as human beings. This is how I see things at this point in time, if you guys have any input I'd be interested to hear it.
1Nine Inch Nails
The Downward Spiral


Nothing is ever as good as it seems.
2Tool
Lateralus


Everything always seems better than it is.
3Karnivool
Sound Awake


We never appreciate anything until it's gone
4Oceansize
Frames


We always want more and we can never have enough.
5The Tallest Man On Earth
The Wild Hunt


We always want something we can never have.
6The Smiths
The Queen Is Dead


We spend our youth wanting to grow up and the rest of our life wishing we had our life back.
7Sonic Youth
Daydream Nation


All success is futile as it never brings the lasting fulfilment that we imagine.
8Smashing Pumpkins
Siamese Dream


We're never really listening, only waiting for our turn to speak (although this was taken from Fight Club)
9Refused
The Shape Of Punk To come


We are all victims of our own thoughts - seldom few are not.
10Radiohead
OK Computer


All material things are transient, meaningless and bring no lasting happiness.
11Bon Iver
For Emma, Forever Ago


True happiness only exists in the moment that it is felt - at any other time, it holds no weight.
12Botch
We Are The Romans


No outlook is constant and as such, we're perpetually confused.
13Radiohead
Kid A


Life is perceivably short and a process of gradual decay.
14The Smiths
Meat is Murder


We remember very little of our lives at most.
15Pearl Jam
Vitalogy


Everyone we love eventually goes away.
16Brand New
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me


We are all slaves to the monetary exchange.
17Nine Inch Nails
Pretty Hate Machine


We could die at any time, and as such, death is inevitable.
18Meshuggah
ObZen


More or less, it seems that we live a hopeless, miserable existence punctured by brief moments of beauty and serenity.
