Shall I drive my car into the wall,
or jump into a lake,
or leap from a tall building,
or slit my wrists?
Shall I overdose on sleeping tablets,
or inject myself with heroin,
or I step out in front of a train,
or hang myself from a tree?
Shall I stab myself with a knife,
or drink rat poison,
or set myself on fire,
or jump from the pier?
Shall I gas myself in the car,
or put a plastic bag over my head,
or inject air into my veins,
or drink a few bottles of vodka
I want to die, but I just don't know how.
