I heard a battle raging
On the other side of the wall
I buried my head in a pillow
And tried to ignore it all

Every night when I hear you
I dream of breaking down your door
An avenging knight in shining Armour
To rescue you from it all

From this family business, family business
How long does it stay, family business
It's nobody's business, this family business
But tell me how long it should take family business

When I see you in the supermarket
Sunglasses in the shade
Averting your eyes from those staring questions
How were those bruises made?

The children clutch tight to your legs
They've got so much they want to say
But daddy's sitting home, drunk again
So they bite their lips and pray

'Cause daddy don't like people crying
Poking in his family affairs
And anyone ask from the social, well
You fell down the stairs

It's family business, keep it in my family business
Can you tell me how long it remains, family business?
It's nobody's business, this family business
Can you tell me how long it should stay, family business?

No, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no

She's waiting at the bus stop
At the bottom of the hill
She knows she'll never catch it
She knows she never will

The kids are all she lives for
She's got nothing left to lose
Nowhere to escape to
But she knows she's got to move

'Cause when daddy tucks the kids in
It's taking longer every night
And the heaven that she's waitin' for
Through the hell it lasts all night

It's family business, keep it in my family business
Can you tell me how long it remains, family business?
It's nobody's business, oh this family business
Can you tell me how long it should stay, family business?

So I become an accessory
And I don't have an alibi
To the victim on my doorstep
The only way I can justify

It's family business, family business
How long do we keep it family business?
