Default Maybe NOW he can prove to her

Oh, thrown down like a barricade
Maybe now he could prove to her
That he could be good for her
And they should be together
About just how much he never really told her
Thrown down
About how difficult it had been
To be without her, thrown down

To my ear it's an odd simile. Are barricades in any context "thrown down"?

I think it’s appilication is even more telling. Especially in light of LBs “passive aggressive” comments.

Its as if she had contemplated a major disruption to put all the cards on the table and force his hand. While in 2000ish it was more of a fascination type contemplation, by 2017 she had actually decided it was her only course of action.

Before you call her a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before they sleeps in the sand?
And how many times must the cannon-balls fly
Before we're forever banned?
