Put on your stupid suit
Like we're in Prohibition
Concealing guns in your cumberbund
Like chaos could ensue
It betrays your intuition
That there is danger here, for you

You are drawn to your past
The gangsters that outlast their time
And take up mine
Wasn't it here? The glory days of industry
On a familiar brink
Drink while you can, boys
(This ship is sinking)
This ship is going down

La la la la...

You don't look me in the eye these days
'Cause I want to take your time
And you don't have any time
It's cool, I'm busy, too
Just thought I might connect with you
In this future-past
Do you remember the last time we danced this way?
It was 1929
What a beautiful sunset
What a dazzling display
We'll look anywhere but where we're going
We'll do anything we can
To get away
From what we know is coming

Everyone in suits
Like it's Prohibition
Pretend we share the rules
Dressed up in inhibition
Everyone in suits
Like it's Prohibition
Perform the disconnect
Dressed up in inhibition

If I could push back time for you, would you pursue me
Like you chase yesterday?
