Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Brother's got a date to keep

    It’s about homelessness and lamenting the perfect middle class life that was before a lay-off or other financial catatirophy that put the family on the street hence the past tense at the end and the double meaning of living “in the middle of the street”.

Most reason to believe this is in the song it says The mother is the one they will miss in lots of ways.

    This is a song about growing up in a big family, it's about your house which is a little crazy but also the only sane corner of the planet at times. It's also about getting away from it eventually, leaving the family home to get on with your life.
