"1-800-Suicide" as written by Anthony Ian Berkeley, Arnold E. Hamilton, Paul E. Huston and Robert F. Diggs....
Chorus: (KRS One)

Suicide it's a suicide
Suicide it's a suicide

Verse One: Fruitkwan/Gatekeeper

So you want to die, commit suicide
Dial 1-800-Cyanide line
Far as life, yo it ain't worth it
Put a rope around your neck and jerk it
The trick didn't work
Your life was fucked up from the first day of birth
After watching Jackie Gleason walk into a precinct
Gun down the captain for no fucking reason
And get some LSD or a drink from the bar
Get behind your wheel and crash the car
Like Desert Storm, got bombs for the war
confront an alligator, let it eat ya raw
Back to the function, riding the caboose to hell
BZZZZZT touched the third rail.
You fucked up chicken, now you just got fried
Cause it's a suicide


Verse Two: Too Poetic/Grym Reaper

Hey you little rich kid, what's your beef?
Come and tell the Grym Reaper all of your grief
You asked for a Benz and you only got a Jeep
Your pop's got endz, but yo he's mad cheap
Maybe you're a bastard child you think
Mom and dad are white and you're dark as ink
Maybe you're Sicilian with a tan
But you hate lasagna and the pizza man
Now you stand on the grave digga locked and
You're singing the blues about the rough life you've got
You don't want to live no more
I guess you're really ready for the grave yard tour
When you get home just fill up your windows and you doors
Turn your oven on high for about four hours
Light you a blunt, kiss your ass goodbye
You gassed yourself 'cause it's a suicide


Interlude: Scott (the Moleman) Harding:

I've said it before and I'll say it again
Life moves pretty fast
If you don't stop and look around every once in a while
you could miss it

Verse Three: Prince Rakeem/Ryzarector

Six fucking devils stepped up playing brave God
Had the fucking nerve to try and enta my grave yard
I'm the Ryzarector, be my sacrifice
Commit suicide and I'll bring you back to life
The first was convinced
Stuck a water hose in his mouth at full blast so his head can explode
Second said hmmmm that's good but I can top it
Put an ax up to his head and then he chopped it
Blood shot out in every direction
The rest didn't know what to do, I made suggestions
Put a slug in your mug, overdose on a drug
Wet your hair stick a knife in the plug
Or be like Richard Pryor set your balls on fire
Better yet go hang yourself with a barbed wire
Three and Four fell deep into spell and
Ran to the zoo, locked themselves in a lion's den
Number Five said it ain't worth being alive
Smoked a dust suede, mixed it with cynaide
The only one to escape was number Six
He went home
Sat in the tub and slit his wrists
Yeah, more graves to dig. Goodbye
There's no need to cry...
... cause we all die

    General Commentthis song is bleak when you first listen to it. but my uncle who showed me this song explained it to me. hes great at getting the meanings behind songs. so i will try to relay the information he told me.

    well at first you would think that this group is promoting suicide. its not that at all. its us who are promoting suicide. our lives have been spoiled so much that if we have to settle for less that we think that no one cares for us. there are clearly people who in worse conditions than the people who all they want to do is cut themselves until they bleed to death. and when he says "six fucking devils stepped up playing brave god." hes saying that people who claim to be 'fearless' and seem to lead a group of people, who i call lemmings because all they do is follow whoever seems cool at the moment, that they are persuaded so easily. yes he told them in the song that they should commit suicide but they fall so easily just like the youth. younger and younger kids get exposed to drugs. and its THEIR choice not anyone elses. they are killing themselves at such young ages.

    basically in a shorter phrase, this song is about how stupid and the stupid choices that people make. and they dont even think about their consequenses. so think about your actions. you only get one life.
