Spandau Ballet were a popular English band in the 1980s. Initially inspired by a mixture of funk and synthpop (a subgenre of New Wave and pop music in which the synthesizer is the dominant musical instrument), the group eventually mellowed into a mainstream pop act.

'Through the Barricades' is a studio album by Spandau Ballet. It was released in 1986.

Spandau Ballet - Through The Barricades
 
Mother doesn't know where love has gone
She says it must be youth that keeps us feeling strong
See it in her face that's turned to ice
And when she smiles she shows the lines of sacrifice

And now I know what they're saying as our sun begins to fade
And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

Father made my history
He fought for what he thought would set us somehow free
They taught me what to say in school
I learned it off by heart but now that's torn in two

And now I know what they're saying in the music of the parade
And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

Born on different sides of life
But we feel the same and feel all of this strife
So come to me when I'm asleep
And we'll cross the line and dance upon (across) the streets

And now I know what they're saying as the drums begin to fade
And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

Oh, turn around and I'll be there
Well there's a scar through my heart but I'll bare it again
Oh, I thought we were the human race but we were just another borderline case
And the stars reach down and tell us that there's always one escape
Oh, I don't know where love has gone
And in this trouble land desperation keep us strong
Friday's child is full of soul
With nothing left to lose there's everything to go

And now I know what they're are saying it's a terrible beauty we've made
So we make our love on wasteland and through the barricades

And now I know what they're are saying as hearts go to their graves
We made our love on wasteland and through the barricades.
There is no prosthetic for an amputated spirit
