"The Prisoner" as written by Matthew Kenneth Heanes, Matthew Kenneth Heanes, Rob Harris, Matt Johnson and Roland Spremberg....
"We want, information, information, information
Who are you?
The new number 2
Who is number 1

You are number 6
I am not a number I am a free man
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha"
I'm on the run, I kill to eat

I'm starving now, feeling dead on the 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, 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 defence
And if I kill ya, 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 tough
Now you see me, 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 round 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
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 round 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
