Suicide Is Permanent



Consider the decision, all things high and low.
Suicide is permanent, problems come and go.
Consider the fruition, all things fast and slow.
Suicide is permanent, problems come and go.
Consider the monition, all things tell and show.
Suicide is permanent, problems come and go.
Consider the omission, all things joy and woe.
Suicide is permanent, problems come and go.
Consider the petition, all things yes and no.
Suicide is permanent, problems come and go.
Consider the volition, all things to and fro.
Suicide is permanent, problems come and go.
Consider the punition, all things pal and foe.
Suicide is permanent, problems come and go.
Consider the admission, all things halt and flow.
Suicide is permanent, problems come and go.
