[Quote from "The Prisoner" spoken by female character in beginning of song "We have a saying here, a still tounge makes a happy life"]

We all sound the same
And I found with every word I spoke
It got harder not to choke
When it came undone
I found that everything I built
Meant nothing
If I lacked the string to open my eyes
(or if i lacked the strength to open my mind?)
[if it was nothing can the signal find me]
all I've known
and all i've been
and i breathe
what they [?]
though i struggle to open a new door
and i don't know what i'll think
when i'll find the other side
And i struggle to utter a new word

I don't know what scares me more
Is it the thought of changing
And I don't know what scares me more
Is it the thought of losing
And I don't know waht scares me more
is it the thought of moving
And i dont know what scares me more
is it the thought that, i, might, get [?]


[I can't decipher the rest of it, and some of what i have is wrong...a lot of it probably, i really wanted the lyrics to this song, so i attempted to do it myself, but if anyone wants to fix it for me, go for it.]

    General CommentWe all sounded the same
    And with every word I spoke
    It got harder not to choke
    And when it came undone
    I found that everything I'd built meant nothing
    If I lacked the strength to open my mind
    Cause it was never these things that defined me

    All I'd known, all I'd seen, what I believed wasn't mine
    So I struggle to open a new door
    And I don't know what I'll see or what I'll find on the other side
    And I struggle to utter a new word
    And I don't know what I'll see or what I'll find when I do

    I don't know what scares me more
    Is it the thought of changing?
    ..Is it the thought of losing?
    ..Is it the thought of moving?
    ..Or is it the thought that I might stand still
    While the world is moving?

    (We can change; we can change our minds. We can change; we can change our lives. I'm glad I'm not stuck in the same place. I'm stepping out so I can grow)

    General CommentThis whole song is great. Szorko's lyrics seem pretty accurate, but the line 'I don't know what scares me more' is repeated in between 'is it the thought of losing', and 'is it the thought of moving'. Just wanted to say that, in case anyone didn't pick up on that.
