Suicide is Painless

Suicide is Painless

Song by Johnny Mandel (music) and Michael Altman (lyrics). It was the theme song for both the movie and TV series MAS*H. Mike Altman was 14 years old when he wrote the song’s lyrics.

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
And I can take or leave it if I please.
The game of life is hard to play
I’m gonna to lose it anyway
The losing card I’ll someday lay
So this is all I have to say…
That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please.
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.
And 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 the key,
“Is it to be or not to be?”
and I replied “oh why ask me?”
And 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 please…

  • this is song fr my type of people. people who really don want to live. people who throw themselves in front of car. people who don't have any hope left but still try to believe that everyone is nice and honest. this song is not fr people like u. who screw people's life and get all happy about that.

  • @ You have no idea who he is or what his story is. Now it is you that is screwing with his life. If he wants to post him let him post it. He didn’t insult you in any way.

  • Every one has their own problems few of them facing and few of of them not they may think for solution as suicide.
    If Braille committed suicide now days none of blind person cant read and write or express their feelings…
    you also born for something to do great.. do that.. don’t waste your life in middle…
    who are committed suicide they face much more problems than their facing in their life.. that may 1000 times more…
    Don’t commute suicide

  • My father, who was once on the brink of death, said to me “I do not know why i decided to come back…i was at death’s beautiful door and noticed how peaceful it was. I want to go back, but now is not my time”. My father was revived by his father during CPR, and said “I want to die again. It was the best ive ever felt” and he left me with that as he commit suicide the following day. I will meet my father wherever he is, to be in peace with him, to not feel anymore pain. I will say my goodbye’s in time, and return to my father’s side.
    This song reassured me that my suicide will not be a task, but a pleasure.
