The title here could refer to two possible "6s." It probably refers to the "Birmingham Six" who were still in custody at the time that this album was originally released. It could be also interpreted more broadly to refer to the 6 counties in the north of Ireland that are still under English rule.

The lyrics for this one are not included in either the cd or vinyl releases of "Ditch " (well, maybe it's because the band already encountered the wrath of BBC censors for "Streets of Sorrow/Birmingham Six" and in the intervening years the laws changed to make public support for the IRA much riskier), which makes intepretation a bit more difficult.

(1) It refers to Bloody Sunday (30 January 1972), when British troops opened fire on a peaceful civil rights march in Derry. Fourteen people were killed and seventeen others wounded.
