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.

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

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.

*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.
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.
