Is this really how the story goes? The songwriters completely disregard the actual utility of a suicide hotline. The primary objective of the telephone counselor is to get that caller, whomever they may be, off the cliff. Once this is managed, the specialist will direct a caller to a variety of resources to aid them on the long and tedious journey towards better mental health. The NSPL is not an antidote to suicide: it’s one piece of a nebulous and imperfect puzzle. In painting a narrative wherein the depressed person suddenly finds peace after a simple phone call, Logic is setting up his most vulnerable listeners for frustration and failure.
