nice guy
nice guy
no one likes the nice guy
smile and nod at them

nice guy, nice guy, every fucking time i
speak up i'm overthrown
[‘you never struck me as the type to take it lightly,
now you’re gonna have to shut your mouth and fight me’]

nice guy, nice guy
never never never
never again, no more

every time i speak up it’s too loudly
every time i speak highly of myself it looks conceited
i'm only looking on myself proudly
but each time i look at you it just seems defeated

it’s kinda sad how you cling onto your beauty
every time i look you try to look right through me
it’s a superficial fucking world i'm not gonna conform
just take me and take me in warm

i really am sick of playing second best
i'm really sick of being outside on all the rest
i considered just offing myself all together
but that seems to precicous

[‘if only, if only, the woodpecker sighs, if only the bark were as soft as the skies’]
if only, if only, i cry alone
you hadn’t ruined me, i could condone

does anyone really know how it truly feels to
feel like complete shit for the last two years

because i stand alone on my mountain
and all i have to show for it are a few scripts and poems
songs aren’t my specialty, but at least i try

its really just not fucking fair i'm stuck with the creep in the corner
although he was nice, it doesn’t pay for the vice.
