Nice guys finish last, you're runnin' out of gas
Your sympathy will get you left behind
Sometimes you're at your best, when you feel the worst
Do you feel washed up like piss going down the drain?

Pressure cooker pick my brain and tell me I'm insane
I'm so fuckin' happy I could cry
Every joke can have its truth but now the joke's on you
I never knew you were such a funny guy

Oh, nice guys finish last, when you are the outcast
Don't pat yourself on the back, you might break your spine

Livin' on command, you're shakin' lots of hands
You're kissin' up and bleeding all your trust
Takin' what you need, bite the hand that feeds
You lose your memory and you got no shame

Pressure cooker pick my brain and tell me I'm insane
I'm so fuckin' happy I could cry
Every joke can have its truth but now the joke's on you
I never knew you were such a funny guy

Oh, nice guys finish last, when you are the outcast
Don't pat yourself on the back, you might break your spine

Oh, nice guys finish last, when you are the outcast
Don't pat yourself on the back, you might break your spine

Oh, nice guys finish last, when you are the outcast
Don't pat yourself on the back, you might break your spine

Oh, nice guys finish last, when you are the outcast
Don't pat yourself on the back, you might break your spine
