OK. There are 3 types of lyrical messages all about suicide out there. Pro-suicide lyrics(see relapse records catalogs, featuring at least one band-that I know of-who will include an actual new razor blade when you purchase the album). Anti-suicide lyrics(CELLDWELLER actually states: "don't kill yourself" in the booklet after the song he wrote.... the song lyrics let you know he's thought suicidally(see the first quote in my sig). Lastly, but not the least of these examples are the songs that are written containing lyrics about suicide that only remind you that many people feel this way. The thought process behind these song lyrics can lead you either way depending on your own state of mind, mainly the way you react to the exact words the artist has chosen or even the emotional state of mind the artist is expressing, like angrily screaming them or practilly crying while using them in the song. An example would be the Papa Roach song about suicidal thinking-sadly do not have the title-where he merely sings most of these lyrics: "Cut my life into pieces This is my last resort Suffocation, no breathing Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding Is it wrong or is it right? If I take my life tonight Chances are that I might Mutilation's outta sight & I'm contemplating suicide Losing my sight Losing my mind Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine Nothing's alright Nothing is fine I cry......" I can almost completely relate to these lyrics on a personal level, making me feel a little better because I know I'm not the only one thinking like that. Now, to answer my other questions. 1st. The pro-suicide thing is something I do not encourage for others. If I needed to I'd actually shelter someone I cared for from any/all that shit... I kid you not about the razor blade(it's not the shaving type) included in the album you can purchase that was made years ago by a band I no longer remember the name of. I'm quite sure I don't care for the message(s) they are trying to convey. 2nd. I highly recommend anti-suicide lyrics-especially if you think suicidally-for almost anyone. If it's a thing that is going to be taught in life anyway it should be taught in a proper way. The religious persons I know have classified it as a form of murder. You might not go to prison for it but isn't it like 1 of the 7 deadly sins? In any case it is said you will not end any suffering. Quite the opposite in fact. You will burn for eternity in a lake of sulfer/hellfire or whatever the church says. 3rd. It goes either way depending on how it's enterpreted in the mind of the individual person. I believe I've covered all the bases. So this can now be opened for discussion.
