Go Kill Yourself - No, Don't


Disturbed (one of my favorite groups) - Inside The Fire

Note: Devon was lead singer David Draiman 's girlfriend. The lyrics portray the devil recommending that David kill himself in the depths of his despair after discovering that his girlfriend had committed suicide.


Inside The Fire
by Disturbed

Devon
Won't go to heaven
She's just another lost soul, about to be mine again
Leave her
we will receive her
It is beyond your control
will you ever meet again

Devon
No longer living
Who had been rendered unwhole.
As a little child,
she was taken
and then forsaken
you will remember it all
Let it blow your mind again


Devon lies beyond this portal
take the word of one immortal
Give your soul to me
For eternity
release your life
to begin another time with her
End your grief with me
there's another way
release your life
take your place inside the fire with love

Sever
Now and forever
you're just another lost soul about to be mine again
see her, you'll never free her
you must surrender it all
And give life to me again

Fire
All you desire
As she begins to turn cold and run out of time


you will shiver
till you deliver
you will remember it all
Let it blow your mind again

Devon lies beyond this portal
take the word of one immortal
Give your soul to me
For eternity
release your life
to begin another time with her
End your grief with me
there's another way
release your life
take your place inside the fire with love


[solo]

Give your soul to me
For eternity
release your life
to begin another time with her
End your grief with me
there's another way
release your life
take your place inside the fire with love


Devon
No longer living
Who had been rendered unwhole.
As a little child
she was taken,
and then forsaken
you will remember it all
Let it blow your mind again (less)

END


Question Time

Under what circumstances is it acceptable to end one's own life?

I feel that such a decision would be acceptable, but only under certain circumstances. Circumstances which we might all face if we lived long enough.


List of Unacceptable Circumstances

Drug or Alcohol Addiction
Incarceration
Broken Heart
Financial Problems
Act of Terrorism
Act of Revenge Against a Loved One


List of Acceptable Circumstances

After Killing Others - Criminally*
In Extreme Non-Stop Physical Pain
High Probability of Extended Psychological Stress Due to Terminal Health Condition
To Save Another's Life

Probably not a complete list either way.

* This one would be very controversial for those who would say that the guilt that the killer felt - driving them to suicide - proves that the killer is not beyond redemption - and that the killer could accept salvation - and still live a Christian life behind bars, and even go to heaven.

I believe most suicides are an action taken against others, for good or bad, even if the person committing it doesn't understand that. My sister took her life and so did my grandpa. Grandpa I can understand!

I'm sorry to hear about your loss.

by the time most people are suicidal, there hearts and minds can no longer determine if it is right or wrong. unfortunately, it is something that happens when a persons coping mechanisms have depleted, no matter heavy or light the situation.
