TITLE: Suicide Is Painless
Lyrics and Chords

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

(Bm) / G Em / D Bm / Em A / D Bm / 

Suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

/ G A / D - / GEm A Bm - /

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

That {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

'Cause {Refrain}

The sword of time will pierce our skin
It doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger, watch it grin

For {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

'Cause {Refrain}

And you can do the same thing
If you please
