That was the best song on the album, IMO. The upbeat tempo isn't meant to make light of suicide, its supposed to come off as (intentionally) incongruous--that someone might be thoughtlessly singing along with a song that catchy, then actually think about the words then feel uncomfortable that they did. Its a "message" song because of that.
Do you recommend any songs? I have it but after Don't Kick the Chair...it turned me off the album. I don't like listening to songs about suicide esp ones that have kind of an upbeat tempo
And its not the only song on the album she did that with. There's a song about child abuse/molestation with well... an even more "upbeat" tempo, and one about revenge murder (again for rape) that also leans in that direction (of "sounding" different than you'd expect for the subject matter).

For me its why its a good album. I appreciate music that (intentionally) screws with people's heads and expectations.
