('Suicide is Painless' by John("Suicide is Painless" by Johnny Mandel)
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.
I 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, and...

The Screaming child cries,
I read my book
The child screams,
I shut the door
Tonight I will walk these luminous streets
Listening to the gentle breeze
I will quit this storm
And look for Peace tomorrow.....
