"Barricade" as written by Kieran Marc Scragg, Joel Edwin Scragg, Ella Frances Partridge and Neil James Reed....
You've done it
You've taken the final guess
Your confession to a man who was wearing a dress
A new day
To disperse the clouds
Or police the release of more bombers in crowds
You've been fighting for ages but what for
You've been fighting for ages but what for
You've been fighting for ages but what for
Someone tell me
You've done it
You've broken the final curse
Your confessions to a man who was driving a hearse
A new day
A dead weight to hold
You'll be responsible for the children that you have told
You've been fighting for ages but what for
You've been fighting for ages but what for
And your forefathers left by the backdoor
Someone tell me
Fear and hate is taking me over
Fear and hate is taking me over
Fear and hate is taking me over
Fear and hate
You've done it
You turn out the final lights
Your confessions to a man who was reading last rites
A new day
Another parade
Adding fuel to the fire of the memory they saved
You've been fighting for ages but what for
You've been fighting for ages but what for
And religion is left by the backdoor
Someone tell me
Too frozen
Too frozen to repent
You'll never get to heaven with a violent intent

    General CommentI'm not really sure about specifics... but when you think that the buffseeds are from Northern Ireland this seems like another song about the Troubles.

    firstly the title - pretty obvious.

    Kieran seems to be criticising the paramilitaries who claim to be fighting a religous cause but are just terrorists.

    "And religion is left by the backdoor"

    "You'll never get to heaven with a violent intent"

    "a new day, another parade" is a really appropriate line for Northern Ireland as people here are obsessed with parades... mostly the protestant community.

    the line "You'll be responsible for the children that you have told" seems to me to be critisizing those people who indoctrinate their children with their bigoted view.

    and finally...

    "You've been fighting for ages but what for
    And your forefathers left by the backdoor"

    is to me Keiran implying that while their forefathers fought for a just cause... they would be ashamed of those fighting nowadays.
