"Keep It (Inferiority Part One)" as written by Kevin Archer and Geoffrey Blythe....
From now on I'll only read books
That shows the worst of my looks
No time to find the time to rewrite mine
I could show it to you
If nothing better to do
But there's no point it doesn't look like you
If you can teach your dog tricks
I think I'll sing or think
Words refuse to come
Mental breakdown and worst is yet to come
My legs feel all numb
But my body is shaking
Sometimes I feel strong
But my soul is all breaking
I've even listened to us
For inspiration / comfort
But competition with myself is not enough
These words aren't lyrics
They're just words from the heart that redefine nervous
If mental pain's not the aim
Why does it claim me, stain me
Words refuse to come
Mental breakdown and worst is yet to come
My legs feel all numb
But my body is shaking
(And just like John Voight meant in in '69)
Sometimes I feel strong
Then I'm God's for the taking
And I know it's not only me
That's scared to look around
But now I've had enough
Show me which way is down
For 3 minutes now I've confused confusion
There's no solution
Al, what the hell, not you as well?
Ah, hold back Kevin
You can wait for heaven
There's more in for you
This is only part two
But if Jesus Christ was alive today
He'd tell me don't heed what you say
Inferiority part one is on
I'm done, it's too late

    General Comment'Keep It' was recorded in various forms with various lyrics.
    This one captures Kevin Rowland's inferiority complex and lack of confidence in his writing as he was overwhelmed by the bands success.
