lyrics

We climb up to the ridge and stop and stare
The water splits the rock and soaks the air
When nature is as wild as this
The distant peaks, the precipice
I've not a hope and not a care
I'm living, living, living

But in the wild we spread the human stain
And I've no god but in a place like this it seems profane
A member of the master race
Wiped the smile clean off my face
So thanks, you sneering bigot, Patsy won't be seen again

Bye bye Nice Guy
And don't come back
No more last warning
You've got the sack
Got no use for a nice guy
You're not fit to survive
One sign of weakness
And they eat you alive

So after all these years this worm has turned
It's not an easy lesson but I've learned
You're oh so cute and credible
But I'm not buying now and you'll
Get nothing out of me until it's earned

I dreamt of being free and now I am
Don't want to be the butcher but I will not be the lamb
So take your stupid trusting mind
The best of luck with humankind
Don't call me Mr Nice Guy, I no longer give a damn

Yeah bye bye Nice Guy
And don't come back
No more last warning
You've got the sack
Got no use for a nice guy
Or your bleeding heart
As soon as they scent it
They tear you apart

Let's just go home, darling, come along
Don't let it get to you girl, don't you cry
Oh no don't you cry, girl, it's time to be strong
It's time we were saying goodbye

Yeah bye bye Nice Guy
And don't come back
No more last warning
You've got the sack
Got no use for a nice guy
Or your bleeding heart
As soon as they scent it
They'll tear you apart
