Keep your eyes to yourself
if you want to see them again;
Stuff ‘em in your pocket and save them for later
Until this has come to an end.

Keep your hands to yourself
If you want to feel them again -
Hold your peace and try to hold onto your hat
Then we can all be friends.

There’s no time for any brave faces
You know where the only safe place is.

Keep your thoughts to yourself
If you’ve got any thoughts left to keep -
They might be the only things of value to you
But to us it all comes cheap.

Keep your self to yourself
If you’ve got any self left to keep;
Pieces of you keep falling away
While you breathe, while you sleep.

There’s no time for any brave faces
You know where the only safe place is.
