I collected moments of pathos (and gallows humor) from the comments section of this YouTube video:

"Self Destruction Anthem" or "Self Destructive Anthem" (I've seen it spelled both ways) by Days N Daze, performed live in 2013 (assuming the video was uploaded shortly after being recorded).


I'm self-destructing
No one can save me
You asked me if I loved you
I said maybe
Why would you love me
You should learn to hate me
I'm going nowhere fast

At the end of every verse:

Why do I do this? Why?
Why do I do this to myself

People wrote their own verses in the comments:

I don't feel this way anymore, but I used to.
