"Suicide Policeman" as written by and Max Joel Bloom Daniel Blumberg....
If you conjure up a fear
Make it loud so I can hear the tambourine
I just want to let you know
I could be your suicide policeman

Don't you go
'Til my eyes have left your face

Everybody hopes and waits
I can't believe
Everybody hopes and waits
I can't relate to my predicament

Brother, if you're feeling low
Tell me one thing I should know of your situation
I could stand out in the hall
I could be your suicide policeman

Arrest your fall
When you're afraid to hit the ground

If you take another drag
off that cigarette would it be so bad
If your lungs are aching and your tongue still shaking
I could be your suicide policeman

    Lyric CorrectionThis is missing the last verse:

    If you take another drag
    off that cigarette would it be so bad
    If your lungs are aching and your tongue still shaking
    I could be your suicide policeman

    General CommentI think it's pretty intuitive what the song is about, the character of the song is worried about people close to him committing suicide so he asks them to speak up before they kill themselves.

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong... It's not "everybody hopes and waits, I can't believe" it's "everybody hurts, in ways, I can't believe" You can clearly hear the "rts" on the end of the word "hurts" so I don't see why there is confusion...

    My OpinionThis song is beautifully awesome. In comparison to some other tracks on the album, it's so mellow but has a really lovely sound.

    General CommentPerhaps 4 people commented on this song and said absolutely NOTHING. NOTHING! Did I say NOTHING?!!What's suicide policeman? My faith in humankind has just dissipated, at least where music is concerned. Geesh.
