about

Most suicide methods are selfish and will always cause untold damage to whoever finds your mangled corpse; this song suggests lying in the snow until you stop breathing as a more dignified and less harrowing alternative. This was written around eight years ago and since then has always been sung by my sister so thanks to her for that.

lyrics

I will not taint the world with blood
Wanting to end my life
Is no reason to hurt myself
With razor or with knife
I will not be a grotesque puppet
Twirling in the breeze
No need to make a spectacle
To haunt my family's dreams

I will not taint my blood with drugs
For when I meet my end
I wish to keep my senses clear
Not into dreams descend
And so the morning beckons me
So clear and crisp with snow
The winter bites my tears back
As through the trees I go

And lay down by the frozen lake
Lie in the frozen snow
And fully conscious, fully sure
And peacefully I go
Into oblivion
So clear, pure and cold
Into that new transcendency
Beyond what's tainted, old

A clean death, simple, painless, swift
A shiver in the dark
Leaving just an imprint
A snow angel in the park

I'm a snow angel
Just a snow angel
Nothing left of me
Nothing needs to be

Nothing left to invite tears
Nothing left to heighten fears
Nothing left to hurt my friends
Nothing but this calming end

Snow angel
Just a snow angel
Nothing left of me
Just how I want to be
