Unhappy Targets. (It's based on a true story and is quite sad...)

Another target to reach.
Another opportunity to leech.
Another way to kill the beach.
Another way to limit speech.

Is it all how you planned,
or has it all gone down the pan?

Another mouth to feed.
Another march to lead.
Another call to heed.
Another trash novel to sit and read.

Are you not fullfilled,
two kids and a wife?

You got there on your own,
through networking.

It's a pity you died so young.
You really died.

It really happened.
You really died.

It's a song and it's about a young man with a family who kills himself. I can't really tell you the whole story because my mum's friend who told me it is a social worker, and it's confidential or whatever. 'Tis sad though, do you not think? Seeing as he had two kids and all.

That's what I always think when I read it, but then when it's played with music it really does. I think I have a rough recording somewhere, if you wanted to hear it?
