I guess this is it, I gave it my best shot
But this is now the only option I got
I know you'll be angry, maybe even be sad
But there was no other choice I had
I've planned it all and have done for weeks
Some day soon you'll try to find me and seek
But on that say I will never be found
Until you throw flowers as I lay six feet underground
The pain, the hurt, the sorrow I felt
The crap cards of life I certainly got dealt
The talking, the shrinks I've had my fair share
The loneliness, the hurt yes it's still there
So in order to gain peace and to stop feeling dull
This is the path I have no alternative but to go
I wanted to change and thought things could
But still now I'm being misunderstood
So tonight it is, when all will be laid to rest
Tonight it is when no longer will my problems manifest
I open the supply and marvel at the sight
To think that these little pills all chalky white
Will be the thing that will make me disappear
Where no more 'get over it' will I hear
The water by my side as I swallow the first batch
I lay on my bed so its mattress me it can catch
I'm getting tired now, the end is coming nigh
Am I really ready to die
What about those who will be left behind
Or the unlucky person who my body will find
Will they have peace or will another cycle start
How can I do this yet proclaim to love them in my heart
I'm sure if I swallow milk and dial 999
Then my rigour mortise body they won't find
I could try again and seek further advice
And not make life's decisions on the throw of a dice
So tonight wasn't the night after all
When suicide turned up and knocked on my door
I politely answered and said you have the wrong house
Now turn around and get to going...... or else
