Suicide is painless

Finger on the Eject Button is a thought in Disco Elysium.

Description[ | ]

Problem[ | ]

Who doesn't toy with the thought of suicide sometimes? Or, like, most of the time? Okay, maybe some people don't – like the happy scientist girl named Marie, or Jean-Marc, the superstar whom everyone loves. But you -- when the going gets rough, it's nice to think about your little trap door out of here. Do it. Put your finger on the eject button, see how alive it makes you feel -- the freedom of finality. Think of how much they'll *miss* you.

Solution[ | ]

Looks like you thought about how much they'll *miss* you and the freedom of finality for too long, and now you've decided to actually kill yourself. The train leaves the station every evening, 21:00. Make sure you have a gun and bullets. That's how macho servicemen do it. Also – turns out *Finger On The Eject Button* is pretty much your theme song. A headbanger from your teenage years and your wedding ballad. This is not the first time you're spinning the tape.

  1. YOU – "Your father used to go to that island too, didn't he?"

    LILIENNE'S TWIN – "Our father killed himself."

    LILIENNE'S OTHER TWIN – "Don't say that. He didn't." His brother punches him. The boy's eyes well up like he's about to start crying.

    YOU – "It's okay to kill yourself, you know. I'm gonna blow my brains out. Gonna close this one final case and then *blam* -- I'm outta here."
