* Alabama Pines by Jason Isbell. Oh God, Alabama Pines. The lyrics describe a dead end in one's pursuit of dreams and happiness, and can hit very close to home.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Music/TheDownwardSpiral'' by Music/NineInchNails is a ConceptAlbum about this. It ends with the narrator being DrivenToSuicide (it's ambiguous whether or [[BungledSuicide not]] it worked, though).
** ''The Fragile'' has this as well- it IS a ConceptAlbum about depression, after all. Lots of individual songs by NIN are examples, as well.

* Music/{{Supertramp}} enjoys these. "Lord, is it mine?", "Rudy" (arguably), and "If everyone was listening are about someone who's on the edge of that horizon, and in danger of going over".

* Music/BillieHoliday had a tragic life where she was the victim of rape at age 11, teenage prostitution, abusive partners and severe alcohol, morphine and heroin addiction. All it culminated in her world-weary MagnumOpus ''Music/LadyInSatin'', where she sings about break-ups, unrequited love and all hardships of relationships in her drug-ravaged voice. Only a year after recording this album she would die from liver cirrhosis.

* ''Music/TheWall'' by Music/PinkFloyd is just one colossal DEH; the entire album is about a rock star who is constantly hurt within his life, and the mental "Wall" he builds between himself and society. Summed up in the aptly titled 'Goodbye Cruel World', as Pink is having a mental breakdown and going catatonic:
