Commentary

Jack’s comments from Bandcamp:

An old song revived – it seemed to fit with the overall theme of the record. I particularly like the horns at the end of the song and the acoustic solo.

 

Lyrics

Take a walk around these streets
These quiet suburban streets
Just after nightfall
Through the parted curtains
To the warm inner glow
You’ll see things to make your skin crawl

There is murder and mayhem behind every door
There is tenderness and mercy behind every door
There is cruelty and kindness behind every door

And it’s not what you expect
On a cold September evening
On your way home from work
You think that you’re alone
With your silent inner demons
But everyone is just the same you know

There is murder and mayhem behind every door
There is tenderness and mercy behind every door
There is cruelty and kindness behind every door

There is murder and mayhem behind every door
There is tenderness and mercy behind every door
There is cruelty and kindness behind every door

There is murder and mayhem behind every door
There is madness and heartbreak behind every door
There is cruelty and kindness behind every door
