The Victims Of Suicide

Can you hear their cries? Each minute another
will die. Graveyards are filling up; all the 
victims of suicide.

Once a man was loved; betrayed by his girlfriend. 
She promised to never leave him; another promise 
broken again.

He no longer takes the pain so he makes his move 
today. With a gun in hand he shoots...he just took 
his life away.

This story here is true, a broken man who just
gave up. I wished it all but fiction, so sad it's
not made up.

Instead of fighting the pain, he chose another
route. Instead of fighting the pain, he chose
the easy way out.

They're jumping off the bridge. They're slitting 
their own wrist. They're shooting themselves 
dead. Now what is wrong with this?

They hang, burn, shoot, stab and injure 
themselves too. They believe that voice 
that says, "Give it up, you are through."

I know just how it feels. You just want to 
give up. Your heart wants you to fight, but 
your flesh just says, "Enough!"

Life can be so hard. You often cry in bed. 
Instead of facing the day, you'd rather give 
up instead.

Death stares at you often. You feel the fear 
inside. Instead of standing up to it you often 
run and hide.

A loved one has left you? In your dreams it
do haunt. Look up, there is a sea and you'll
catch any fish you want!

Begin to read the Scriptures; they'll renew your
life. There are power in the words, so pull it 
close and hold on tight.

So I know you can do it, if only you believe. 
Just take back your life. Your soul you shall
redeem.

Can you hear their cries? Each minute another will
die. Graveyards are filling up. Don't be a victim
of suicide.

For them I sigh
For them I cry
In their graves they do lie.

Said it once
Say it again
Don't be a victim of suicide.

    Just don't read the old testament...there's alot of killing and death in there and alot of it coming from God.

    Always saw the victims of suicide, as the loved ones who remain after the selfish and weak act....only under certain, extreme circumstances can a suicide not be seen as a selfish act. Guess I am an asshole sometimes?
