It is best to keep it all inside
When the quicksand fills your boots and rises past your eyes
It is better to die suffocating and choking on your pride
It is best to keep it all inside

When she’s telling you that you’re no good
And that you’ll never be much more than some fool carved out of wood
It’s best to kill her with your kindness while you’re sleeping in her bed
It is best to keep it all inside

It is never too late to come home
You will always have your box in your room
Where your momma lays your clothes out
And she leaves you where you lie
It is best to keep it all inside

When it’s good it’s really good
When there’s fruit up on the table and she treats you like she should
There’s no need to get excited let your heels click on the floor
It is best to keep it all inside
It is best to keep it all inside
