"Keep Us In" as written by and Patrick Damphier Jacob Rolleston....
It's been a hell of a day
We hung the black ball over your love
With the dogs that we trained
Burying anything that we're not sure of
If you'd open your door, you'd find us hiding behind your white picket fence
You could call it a war
But we're not trying to keep you out, we're trying to keep us in
(Keep us in, keep us in, keep us in)

Gonna talk until we're straight
Find that tiny ball* to crush
Kill it til we're safe
You, with your pride and joy
Me, with my criminal friends
You, with your self-inflicted happiness
And me to make it end

That's a hell of a way to put a mark down
And outlaw a love
With the dogs that we trained
Fighting off anything that we're not sure of
(Keep us in, keep us in, keep us in)

You, with your pride and joy
Me, with my criminal friends
You, with your self-inflicted happiness and me

I'm gonna talk until we're straight
Find a tiny bog* to crush, kill it til we're safe
You, with your pride and joy
Me, with my criminal friends
You, with your self-inflicted happiness, and me
Me to make it

    Lyric CorrectionIt's been a hell of a day, we hung the black ball over your love.
    With the dogs that we train, burying anything that we're not sure of.
    If you'd open your door you'd find us hiding behind your wife and kid fence.
    You could call it a war, but we're not trying to keep you out,
    we're trying to keep us in.
    Keep us in.
    Keep us in.
    Keep us in.

    Gonna talk until we're straight.
    Find that tiny bug to crush,
    Kill it till' we're safe!
    You with your pride and joy..
    Me with my criminal threats..
    You with your self-inflicted happiness.
    And me to make it end.

    That's a hell of way to put a mark down and outlaw a love.
    With the dogs that we train, fighting off anything that we're not sure of.
    Keep us in.
    Keep us in.
    Keep us in.


    You with you're pride and joy..
    Me with my criminal threats..
    You with yourself inflicted happiness and me..


    I'm gonna talk until we're straight.
    Find that tiny bug to crush,
    Kill it till' we're safe.
    You with you're pride and joy.
    Me with my criminal threats.
    You with your self-inflicted happiness and me,
    Me to make it.
