First, here’s the suicide scene from the movie with a partial song, only 3 stanzas.
Alternately, here’s the complete song with lyrics.
Now here’s my take on the song. The lyrics make it one of my favorites of all time. I know all of the lyrics by heart. Though, I often get the verses out of order. I find the song hugely uplifting in the sense of knowing that when life is no longer better than the alternative, I always have a way out.
The song makes a great sales pitch for death with dignity.
