[Dead is] kind of ridiculous. It's a problem that's hard to be sympathetic with: One the one hand, it's frustrating that your life ends and you might feel like you're not achieving everything you want. But when you're alive you don't necessarily feel motivated towards achieving something. So I guess it's sort of like 'the grass is greener.'
