M*A*S*H* - Suicide Is Painless
Music by Johnny Mandel
Lyrics by Mike Altman



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...


[REFRAIN]:


That suicide is painless.

It brings on many changes.

And I can take or leave it if I please.

I try to find a way to make,
All our little joys relate,
Without that ever-present hate,
But now I know that it's too late, and...


[REFRAIN]

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.


[REFRAIN]

The only way to win is cheat,
And lay it down before I'm beat,
And to another give my seat,
For that's the only painless feat.


[REFRAIN]

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, but...


[REFRAIN]

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?'


[REFRAIN]


'Cause 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 choose.

Suicide Is Painless.. Very good song, I could see that as Country or Rock. Marlyn Manson and Manic Street Preachers did a re-make of the song. Manson's was more dark like the orignal song and MSP's was kind of up beat and almost heavy metal like version of the song.. I love it...
