Go To

"She put him out like the burning end of a midnight cigarette..."
Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss, Whiskey Lullaby

"Well that's about enough life for me for one day. Let me check the time, yeah it's about dat time."
JonTron, while watching Birdemic

"It seems that my time is up. However, I will not die by your technique! Kenshiro... FAREWELL!!"

Bruce: I should have killed you.
David: Yeah? I should have killed you.
Bruce: I wish you had.

When lovely woman stoops to folly
And finds too late that men betray
What charm can soothe her melancholy?
What art can wash her guilt away?
The only art her guilt to cover
And hide her shame from every eye
And give repentance to her lover
And wring his bosom is - to die.
The Vicar of Wakefield

Today, in the year of our Lord 2005,
Tuomas was called from the cares of the world.
He stopped crying at the end of each beautiful day.
The music he wrote had too long been without silence.

He was found naked and dead
with a smile on his face, a pen and 1000 pages of erased text.
Nightwish, "The Poet and the Pendulum"

"Why is 3 o'clock in the morning always the hour of choice to put on Nick Cave, get depressed and kill yourself? What's wrong with the middle of the day when everyone's awake and ready to call an ambulance? "

I tried it five years ago. I was at a neighbor's house and fired a gun at my head. Nothing happened; it seemed empty. I fired it at a wall and put a bullet in it. So a minute later I found some Seconals in a medicine cabinet. I remember watching cartoons and taking the pills one by one. A neighbor lady found me and couldn't wake me up. I couldn't open my eyes or move, but I heard everything. I remember the lady shaking me and saying, "Oh, my God." I remember the ambulance people taking off my clothes and making me throw up. There wasn't any pain. I don't remember having my stomach pumped.

When I woke up it was five days later. A big black lady kept tickling me. "'Bout time you woke up," she said. "I've been tickling you for three days." I thought I was in heaven — it looked like some place in heaven for the misfits. Turned out I was in the basement of a free clinic, a long room with rows of beds with all kinds of teenagers, pregnant girls, suicides, drug addicts. We walked around in gowns, smoking cigarettes and watching TV. The reason I tried was I was angry at my mother, but when she came in she just said, "Why'd you do this — to try to get attention?"

Am I glad I was rescued? Oh yeah. I was so glad I didn't die. It made me realize how much I appreciate myself, because I had a glimpse of what I might have lost. I had some friends and I would've missed them. I didn't have to go home after that. They put me in a foster home. The State made me go to a psychiatrist. I never liked the man. I thought he had more problems than I did. I felt drugged and slow for a couple of years. Every now and then I'd take speed to feel normal. Downers still make me feel speedy. If I had a suicidal friend now I'd ask them, "Why don't you have any alternatives? Could it really be so awful?" That's what I say to myself now.

No way out...suicide!
Rage, "Suicide"

Holy lord, I'm falling fast — Bring me back!
Testament, "Falling Fast"

I'm near the edge
I'm on the edge
I'm off the edge! JUMP!
Forbidden, "Off the Edge"

"Forgive me, John. I never meant to do this. Oh God, forgive me."
Magda Sorel converting her home into a Gas Chamber for herself, The Consul

I am reaching, but I fall
And the stars are black and cold
As I stare into the void
Of a world that cannot hold
I'll escape now from the world
From the world of Jean Valjean.
There is nowhere I can turn
There is no way to go on....
Inspector Javert as he throws himself into the Seine river, Les Misérables

Life, it seems, will fade away
Drifting further, every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters, no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free
Metallica, "Fade to Black"

Shepard: Take my hand, and live!
Clone: For what?
Shepard's Clone, Mass Effect 3: Citadel

"God, forgive me..."
Johnny, The Room

For all the things I had witnessed and took part in
This ending is just
—The final lines of Rei's suicide note, Frozen

"Hours grew longer. Employees were not allowed to leave or to take bathroom breaks. Wide scale experiments were undertaken on pretty much everyone. We’ve never seen such casualties. And from our own! We had to install nets along the rooftops to… um… keep people from flying away."
Corin Deeth III, Kakos Industries

Then I see Ma's pill bottles open on the table, they look mostly empty. Never more than two, that's the rule, how could they be mostly empty, where did the pills go?
Jack, Room

A woman I knew just drowned herself
The well was deep and muddy
She was just shaking off futility
Or punishing somebody

Asuka had once felt like dying too, several times in fact, but there was always something that kept her going.
No, not always. She had wandered the streets for days. She had starved herself. She had stripped naked and climbed into that bathtub. And she had waited, her life meaningless, her pride destroyed, her whole being slowly slipping from reality.

Just think of what my life might be
In a world like I have seen
I don't think I can carry on
Carry on this cold and empty life, oh no
(one guitar solo later)
My spirits are low, in the depths of despair
My lifeblood spills over...
Rush (as the song's protagonist), 2112

Goku: Wait, you didn't mention Yamcha!
Trunks: Oh, um... I mean, he dies, but... See, after he found out that my mother was pregnant with Vegeta's child, he sort of...
[Cut to Yamcha's body swinging in darkness]
Goku: Dark.

People today are obsessed with anything shiny and new. But it's all an illusion. Everything new fades. But forgotten hotels are still good for some things: drug deals... May-December indiscretions... and ending it all. I'd know that look anywhere. Seen it many times. These two lucky birds are content. At peace, even. It's their wedding anniversary: sixty years, four kids, nine grandchildren. They've had a good run together... but she's not quite the same anymore, since the cancer spread. And he can't imagine his life without her. The last thing she wants is to be a burden. So they come here, to be alone - so they never have to be alone again. I... envy them.

I know that I’m stronger, broken heart of a fighter.
My scars remind me that i’m a survivor.
This life is a tough game and I don’t wanna play it,
I’m reaching for a hand, help me make it.
It’s too much and I give up,
Just please don’t hate me.
My letter’s on the pillow win a kiss goodbye,
I’m sorry mom but I promise that I tried.
Scratch 21, The Rhyme.

Ann? I'm sorry. I... I can't take this... anymore...
Shiho Suzui, following what thankfully turns out to be a Bungled Suicide, Persona 5

Solution gone, emotions ablaze
A life so strong just faded away
You find yourself searching for a quick release
A new belief
Feeder, "Comfort in Sound"

"They ain't gonna get Honey Mustard twice... FUCK YOU, GOOOOOOOOOOODS!!! I've got a date... with oblivion."
Honey Mustard, Sausage Party

It's time to leave this place. I held out hope for months that I'd see my family again, but it seems like this rope is my only ticket to freedom. I'm sure Ryan has seized the bookstore, no telling where Gloria and Billy will have to... live... Can't seem to form a complete thought anymore. Can't sleep with that glow coming in the windows. Things out there watching us. Maybe I'll get to sleep now...
Harold Parson, Bioshock 2

"And by the way, if Square doesn't add voice overs to Final Fantasy IX, I'm commiting suicide. I'd hate that!"

It seems that the world is such a troublesome place.
Sometimes I think I should just end the pain.
"You're sick, aren't you dear?"
"I'm sick of the tears."
Why can't everything just end simply?
Everything that I aspire to be is nothing that will become of me.
If my expectations are too far-fetched, just what am I to do?
Give a sign, give a sign, a reason not to die.
Give me something to prove my worth.
— An English cover of "Irony", Vocaloid

You never determine exactly which bit it was that Zeeman Hodgkiss ate. She never said; she simply folded her napkin, rose carefully from the table, strode down to the engine room, and flung herself into the main boiler. You doubt the cook has enough pepper in stock to mask a taste like that.

Well, time to kill myself. Can you turn me into stone?
