Well I know it's been so long,
It must be wrong of me to think that all we built will surely sink,
but you may just prove me wrong.
I'd hate to peek behind your curtain but I've got to know for certain,
With suits and ties you flirt, they lie, it's true.
I've heard them bullshit promises to you,
but we owe it to ourselves to make the most with what we're dealt,
and so I'll trust you,
like I'm supposed to do.
All the people in the mix, all after pleasure or for kicks
all out for new love or out for their fix, what they don't get is just this,
while you treats are oh so sweet, you know our history repeats so,
all the troubles that happened yesterday,
will always come back to hurt us both today,
and now your big, big brother is all looking over my shoulder by now,
and he don't like it when I take you out past your curfew.
From the day you were born,
till the day that we'll die,
we'll keep on getting stuck with our feet in the muck.
With suits and ties you flirt, they lie, it's true.
I've heard them bullshit promises to you,
but what you taught me from the start,
back at school was that those who make connections with your thighs
touch the skies, and there's violence in your heart.
From the day you were born
to the day that you died,
you were on your way to the party, but you couldn't get inside.
