53Minute of Decay - Marilyn Manson
54Hopes Leaves - Opeth

This song just makes me think about how lonely we can be as humans and a rush of memories flash through my head, if I'm in a down mood I often find myself listening to this album and I normally go back and listen to this song again at the end.

55King of Pain - The Police
56Reptile - Nine Inch Nails
57Second Love - Pain of Salvation
58Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

The only way to describe this song is as perfect, seriously I would not only put it at the top of the most depressing songs but also as one of the best songs of all time.

just listen to the lyrics including the music video. its as if the world around you in slowly dissapering.

I totally agree with Mad world being number 1, but comfortably numb deserves to be higher because of how the lyrics and story make it so sad.
