[Chorus:]
I'm out here fighting, hungry
The fish ain't biting
Life's so frightening
I'm out here stumbling
Broke and crumbling
And nothing's hatching
And I ain't catching

Nothing, nothing
Nothing, nothing, nothing

I'm running last in this human race
Trying to get over this hopeless place
Trying to find that no defense
That I can't win with no confidence

And meanwhile in dc
Tricky d**k is trying to be slick
And the short end of the stick
Because I'm gonna get it
Tricky d**k, please quit

[Chorus:]

Nothing, nothing
Nothing, nothing, nothing

I've been trying to recover
From that phase one
But it's just too hard when
The damage is already done

Lord, we will overcome
Or am I just destined
Destined to be a bum

With phase two
I thought I was through
In phase four gonna
Take me out the back door

This I know it's for sure
I'm on my knees begging please
Tricky d**k, stop your s**t

[Chorus:]

Nothing, nothing

Can't afford to be lazy
When the cost of living's
Gone crazy

[Chorus:]
