Lyrics

Just keep it simple, that's all I really want
It's all I can handle, even it feels like a lot
But nobody raised me to be weak and so
I try not to let these complications get to me

Just keep it classy, that's all you ever hear
And it's good advice my dear
I've seen you embarrassing yourself a few too many times
It's undignified

And it's so easy to fall
Out of favor with yourself
And it's so easy to crawl
Right back in the end

Just keep your head down, it's best for everyone
It helps you to focus on what you need to get done
And nobody has to look each other in the eye
And we can all pretend and no one dies

Keep your composure, keep up appearances
And let yourself get lost in it
'Cause nobody wants to see the face behind the mask
With all that scar tissue and empty eyes of glass

And it's so easy to fall
Out of favor with yourself
And it's so easy to crawl
Right back in the end

It's comfortably familiar, this old faithful noise
Digging out my old favorite toys
But no one expects the things they love to grow a mold
Packed away inside damp boxes down below

It seems now all's repaired and everyone is pleased
And I try to shake the memory
But it still stings that you just couldn't give me the damn dignity
Of asking me not to leave
