Marillion

Marillion are a British rock band, formed in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England, in 1979. Their recorded studio output since 1982 is composed of seventeen albums generally regarded in two distinct eras, delineated by the departure of original frontman Fish in late 1988, and the subsequent arrival of replacement Steve Hogarth in early 1989. All four albums released with Fish were commercial successes, and the band released eleven Top 40 hits on the UK Singles Chart, including 1985's "Kayleigh", which reached No. 2 and became their biggest hit single. more »

I heard the battle raging on the other side of the wall
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 armor to rescue you from it all
From the family business

When I see you in the supermarket
With sunglasses in the shade
Averting your eyes from the staring questions
How were those bruises made
It's family business

Children clutching 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

And daddy don't like no strangers prying
And noses in his private affairs
And if anyone asks from the social
Well, you fell down the stairs
It's family business

So I'll become an accessory
And I don't have an alibi
To the victim lying on my doorstep
The only way I could justify
It's family business

'Cause every day it's getting harder
Try to see, to go away
To all the people that surround you
You have to sit down and explain

To be the writing on the wall inside
To be the pledge you call your own
And if you run into the day
You sure, you know you'll find a home
You sure, you know you'll find a home

The traffic lights shine upon
And the broken home
Everyone could be so far away
And the white lines lead the way

The writing on the wall
They're carving out the martyrs

Could've been the same this way
Could've been the same this way
Tell them I'm the same today
We could have been much younger
It could have been much longer

Until the real time too far
You run away today
Tomorrow, you take away the time
You took away a mind

Something to the light she said
Everyone's burning
We could have been much younger
