Lyrics[edit]

    Through early morning fog I see
    Visions of the things to be
    The pains that are withheld for me
    I realize 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...
    
    And 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?"
    
    And 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.
