The Prisoner Lyrics

3. The Prisoner (6:03)
Track rating :  93.3 / 100      Votes :  9     
"We want information, information, information."
"Who are you?"
"The new number two."
"Who is number one?"
"You are number six."
"I am not a number, I am a free man."
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA."


I'm on the run, I kill to eat.
I'm starving now, I'm feeling dead on my feet.
Going all the way, I'm nature's beast.
Do what I want, I'll do as I please.

Run! Fight! To breathe! It's tough!
Now you see me (haha!) Now you don't.
Break the walls, I'm coming out.

Not a prisoner I'm a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don't care, where the past was,
I know where I'm going...Out!

If you kill me, it's self-defense,
If I kill you, then I call it vengeance.
Spit in your eye, I will defy,
you'll be afraid when I call out your name.

Run! Fight! To breathe! It's gonna be tough!
Now you see me, and now you don't.
Break the walls, I'm coming out.

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don't care, where the past was,
I know where I'm going.

I'm not a number, I'm a free man,
Live my life where I want to.
You'd better scratch me from your black book,
'cause I'll run rings around you.

[Solo]

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don't care where the past was,
I know where I'm going.

I'm not a number, I'm a free man,
Live my life where I want to.
You'd better scratch me from your black book,
'cause I'll run rings around you.

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man,
And my blood is my own now.
Don't care where the past was,
I know where I'm going.
