"Miserable" is a song from Lit's album A Place in the Sun. It was the third single released from the album. It also had an accompanying music video directed by Evan Bernard, produced by Keeley Gould, in which the band is portrayed performing the song on and around a huge Pamela Anderson, who wears a white bikini and platform shoes. The video ends with Pamela chasing down and devouring the band members one by one. She starts by eating one member who was standing on her lips. When the band begins to run she chases after them and grabs one member and eats him alive. Pamela then sneaks up behind a third band member who is hiding from her and slurps him up. She then chews him up and spits out his shoe. Finally only the lead singer is left who the giantess picks up tosses into her mouth and swallows him alive. With all the band members eaten the giantess walks away as the video ends

A man's subconscious self is not the ideal companion. It lurks for the greater part of his life in some dark den of its own, hidden away, and emerges only to taunt and deride and increase the misery of a miserable hour.
The only happy talkers are dandies who extract pleasure from the very perishability of their material and who would not be able to tolerate the isolation of all other forms of composition; for most good talkers, when they have run down, are miserable; they know that they have betrayed themselves, that they have taken material which should have a life of its own, to dispense it in noises upon the air.
There is nothing to romanticize about the cold and bitter darkness of the night. What keeps us going through is the Hope that soon the night will end, and the first bright ray of Sun will penetrate the darkness to illuminate our world. No matter how long and lonesome that night could be, the reality is that it will end eventually. It's the Hope that keeps us going through those miserable dark patches. That's why it's important to never lose Hope. Dum vita est, spes est! As long as there is life, there is Hope!
