about

"The song came from a conversation I was having with my mother. We were talking about when I was a kid, and she was saying that we had such a dysfunctional family. I told her, that everybody has a dysfunctional family, we just don't know what happens behind everybody else's doors."

lyrics

Sunny Friday afternoon,
The kids are playing after school
Automatics in the street
Until it's time to eat
There's nothing there to indicate
Or cause you to speculate that

Behind every door
There may be tears and screams, and broken dreams
Behind every door
Is the hidden world of the boys and girls
Behind every door

In his room with headphones on
Getting lost in a song
The cops were there again today
This time they took his brother away
And all the neighbors turn their heads
Glad it isn't them instead and

Behind every door
There are tears and screams, and broken dreams
Behind every door
Is the secret life of a husband and wife
Behind every door

You've got to take care of your own
Take care of your own

He has cocktails every night
Like calling them that makes it alright
And she unloads her shit on him
And aims him at the kids
But the lawn and trees are trimmed and neat
Just another house on another street, and

Behind every door
It's all drugs and drink, and unspeakable things, and
Behind every door
Is the secret life of a husband and wife, and
Behind every door
Is the broken world of the boys and girls
Behind every door

You've got to take care of your own
