SE 11 Ep 22 Truth And Suicide

In this episode I explore how we as individuals arrive at personal truth and how much that can differ and contrast with other people’s truths. I bring up a number of examples of times where two people have different truths and one must pick one over the other including suicide versus living out your full life.

As someone who has been suicidal before and made a few half-hearted attempts, I explain the psychology of suicide. How logical it seems and how hard and condescending it is to listen to another truth when you are suicidal. Lastly I explore why it is that suicide is considered an abnormality in western culture

If you are feeling suicidal please be open to other truths. Call 1-800-273-8255 in The United States for help. If you are close to making an attempt dial 911!

In this episode I react to the terror attack in Charlottesville. I talk about the awful emotions it brought up. How do you handle Nazis? Do you let them speak? How do you handle law enforcement that you can’t trust? I also talk about Pride and being bisexual. Finally I wrap things about by talking about being Bi-polar and studying mood disorders.

Do Something

Lyrics By Nicolas Jackson

Record and sell as you see fit

Do Something

People on the streets are so god damn old

Be prim and be proper do what you’re told

But the times are a changin

There’s new thoughts to behold

So do something do something

For god sakes do something

Get up off your ass and do what you’re told

The old thoughts are killing it all

Not a thought to think

Grow up

Get married

Get a job

Get old

Do something do something

For god sakes do something

Get up off your ass and do what you’re told

Trump or Clinton

It’s a choice so old

There’s just no thinking

Dogmatic they scold

Do something do something

For god sakes do something

Get up off your ass and do what you’re told

They always say there’s a future to behold

There’s nothing there

It’s death en masse

So tell them

Please tell them

Before we get old

I’m cold and I’m hungry

And it’s getting old

There’s no future

Is what I behold

So do something do something

For god sakes do something

Make it somehow matter

Before you get old

But they say

Do something do something

For god sakes do something

Get up off your ass and do what you’re told

Let Me Out

I’m abnormal maladaptive and all of that shit

I can honestly barely hold it in

Long night and days alone with a cat

Is this really where it’s all at?

I can’t plan to get out

There is no way

Debt collector make of sure

At the ass end of capitol with no gain

Social Security is a pain

My fate lies in bureaucracy hands

Until then there is no plan

My biggest fear is the repoman

Militant cops.

Yes they are next.

Carry me away.

Don’t give me pay.

Just lock me away

Society’s bane

I awfully good at that bachelor thing

Beg for money and all of that shit.

I want to learn more. I want to get out.

But the debt collector keeps me out

I am no good at the adult game

Life is just passing me by

But yet I still make my battle cry heard.

Damn it you can’t lock me out

The wars on the streets they battle and rage

But the bus won’t let out

Is this really the world that we’ve won?

Frankly I could do without.

Damn it let me out

 

Damn you god damn fuckers let me out!
