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... [REFRAIN]: That suicide is painless It brings on many changes And I can take or leave it if I please. I try to find a way to make All our little joys relate Without that ever-present hate But now I know that it's too late, and... [REFRAIN] 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. [REFRAIN] The only way to win is cheat And lay it down before I'm beat And to another give my seat For that's the only painless feat. [REFRAIN] 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, but... [REFRAIN] 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?' [REFRAIN] 'Cause 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.
