    Say what you will about the two albums Iron Maiden recorded with Blaze Bayley on vocals, but "2 AM" from 1994's The X Factor is the quintessential working man's "dark night of the soul" song.

    I get in from work at 2 AM
    And sit down with a beer
    Turn on late night TV
    And then wonder why I'm here
    It's meaningless and trivial
    And it washes over me
    And once again I wonder
    Is this all there is for me

    Here I am again
    Look at me again
    Here I am again
    On my own
    Trying hard to see
    What there is for me
    Here i am again
    On my own
