Through early morning fog I see
Visions of the things to be.
The pains that are withheld for me.
I realise and I can see
That suicide is painless,
It brings on many changes.
And I can take or leave it if I please.
The game of life is hard to play.
I’m gonna lose it anyway.
The losing card I’ll someday lay
So this is all I have to say:
Suicide is painless,
The sword of time will pierce our skins,
It doesn’t hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger, watch it grin.
A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are key.
Is it to be or not to be?
And I replied “Oh why ask me?”
And you can do the same thing if you please.
Suicide is Painless
