"Barricades" as written by Pat Green and Justin Pollard....
Close my eyes
And ask myself a question
Why is I do what I do
Am I looking for some happy definition?
Life, and love and the corners of the truth
Or am I just some curious bystander
Looking at the world through a child's eyes
Sunlight, always shining on my shoulder
While the storm rages on deep inside

And it seems so hard
To keep it all together
When the walls are fallin' down
On every side
I'll be damned
If I give up on you easy
I've worked too hard
To put the barricades aside

This world is a stage
We're meant to play on
Direction from inside
On what to do
I don't know how I could have all the answers
When inside I don't have a clue

And it seems so hard
To keep it all together
When the walls are fallin' down
On every side
I'll be damned
If I give up on you easy
I've worked too hard
To put the barricades aside

Tell me something
And I'll be okay
Told myself I'd be alright
No doubt
So when do I know
When I've been lyin'?
I can't believe it took 30 years
To figure that shit out

And it seems so hard
To keep it all together
When the walls are fallin' down
On every side
I'll be damned
If I give up on you easy
I've worked too hard
To put the barricades aside
