"Rope" as written by and Hector Grazani Carlos Aguilar....
Hollow this - and maybe you can swallow this - I don't know
I guess it always seems that something in this life is diseased
But guess what I know - Here's something that you can't devour
It's something moving with the tide and now it's ripping you from inside

Follow me into the Abyss of the windfall that's tearing you down
It's OK to believe that there's something in nothing now

I'm at the end of my rope
If I could give - I'll bet I would play dead
If I could live - I'd fall apart again
If I could fly - away from all this pain
If I could run - I'd crumble again

Please rewind - retrace your life - and then you'll find
That everything you learned in this - is just a pile of worthlessness
So suffocate - and maybe you can separate
And in the end - it's no surprise - that only in death will you realize

I'm at the end of my rope
If I could give - I'll bet I would play dead
If I could live - I'd fall apart again
If I could fly away - from all this pain
If I could run - I'd crumble again

If it's true - it's just to pass the time - just to pacify my will to bind
You can't drive when you're blind - and it burns your eyes
You can't hold me to a place in time - where I'm stuck behind
You can't climb out of the flood -the sign - listen to the lies that cut
you up inside - and the blood will stain our lives

If I could.....
I'm at the end of my rope

If I could give more - yeah
If I could cut me in any way I could
If I could fly away
If I could....If I could run

    General CommentThis song makes me chuckle so much. I don't think it's about not wanting to help someone commit suicide, per se. It seems very sardonic to me, maybe even daring this person to do it, or not caring one way or the other if they do it or not. It sounds to me like the person being addressed (the would-be suicider) is maybe an attention whore who frequently threatens suicide, or maybe just goes around feeling sorry for themselves and takes their misery out on others, or acts like some martyr. The speaker has had enough of this, so offers them instructions on how to hang themselves effectively ("you're gonna need more...rope"). The last part, about not kicking out any chairs, I think is saying that if you want to wallow in your misery, fine, but I won't be attending your self-pity party.
