#(Suicide is Painless)
{st:By Mike Altman and Johnny Mandel, 1970}

Through [Em7]Early morning fog I[A7] see, [D]visions of the things[Bm] to be:
The p[Em]ains that are withh[A7sus]eld for [A7]me.  I [D]realize and[Bm7] I can see,

That [Em7]suicide is pain[A7]less
It [D]brings on many chan[Bm7]ges,
And[Gmaj7] I can tak[D]e or lea[Em]ve it [A7]if I [Bm]please.    


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.

The game of life is hard to play,
I'm going to lose it anyway,
The losing card I'll someday lay,
So this is all I have to say,

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

The sword of time will pierce our skins,
It doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works it's way on in,
The pain grows stronger, watch it grin.

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?"
{c:CHORUS; but last line:}
And [Gmaj7]you can [D]do the [Em7]same thing [A7]if you [Bm]please....
