the decay of lying

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,

It brings on many changes.

And I can take or leave it if I please.

 

 

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.

Suicide is painless,

It brings on many changes.

And I can take or leave it if I please.

 

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?”

Suicide is painless,

It brings on many changes.

And I can take or leave it if I please.

 

And you can do the same thing if you please.

 

Suicide is Painless
