  1. Suicide Is Painless
    ( https://youtu.be/VkcjCLi5dwQ )

    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.
    I can take or leave it if I please.

    That game of life is hard to play.
    I'm gonna lose it anyway.
    The losing card of some delay,
    So this is all I have to say;

    That suicide is painless,
    It brings on many changes.
    I can take or leave it if I please.

    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 burn.

    That 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?

    That suicide is painless,
    It brings on many changes.
    And I can take or leave it, if I please.

    That suicide is painless,
    It brings on many changes.
    I can take or leave it if I please.

    That suicide is painless,
    It brings on many changes.
    And you can do the same thing,
    if you please.

  2. I’m participating in the 2019 Suicide Prevention Out of the Dark Walk. If you could donate anything for the cause, that would be amazing!! https://afsp.donordrive.com/participant/2039171

    Please talk to someone if you are in a dark place! Someone loves you 💙

  3. tv shows don't cause suicide. The fact that life is a miserable waste of time and effort and therapists are all money grubbing liars does.

  4. LET IT DIE LET UT DIE LET IT SHRVIEL UP AND

  5. If you are stupid enough to commit suicide. The planet becomes a better place.

  6. I think your broadcasts cause more suicide than any other shows.

  7. If you leave your children unattended then the devil will come in and raise them for you.

  8. Suicide is pro-choice, their body, their choice.

  9. “Suicide is Badass”
    – Frank Reynold

  10. Look on the bright side , suicide.

  11. I don't think we should be talking about suicide at all in public media whether or not it's portrayed in a positive, negative, neutral, or otherwise educational light. It should be kept strictly between a therapist and their patient. Stop writing about it in books, stop making movies about, stop making news reports on it. Just. Stop.
