Suicide is painless



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...

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

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...

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

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...

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

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?"

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

    General CommentA cover tune is a song by an artist or band that a different artist or band remakes.

    General Commentthis song reminds of my best mate. it was her favourite song, she would listen to it constantly on record. at her funeral they played this song and instead of it making me feel sad it made me feel happy for her because it made me think of all the time we had spent together, all the laughs that we had. so whenever i feel depressed i listen to this song. sometimes the manson one, sometimes the original one

    General CommentI honestly think its really stupid of you to like the song, but then just not like it because its a cover. I thought he did a very good job with it. He gave it the deathly, dark feeling that a song about this subject should capture.

    General CommentI love this version, but I prefer the version by the Manic Street Preachers. You should all hear it.
