"Street Walker" as written by and Brandon Young Matthew Vasquez....
Streetwalker knows how to strut right
She knows the truth
Bad boys walking through the corridor
God knows what they're gonna do.

Darkness paraded across the headlines,
Little girl stolen from her bedroom,
Homeless, beat to death, or put out
Hopeless, greedy and cruel.

Oh why can't I feel for you?
My heart is so black to you

Her head was spinning like a hurricane
Tina was singing her name
Old men like to rape her in the red light
She's too young and numb to complain

Little boy bought at the age of six,
Down the street he's wearing a dress
Look at his face, you won't see no innocence
He's got so much experience

Oh why can't I feel for you?
They lie, what can I do?

Oh Love, set me free!
Set me free!
Come on and set me free!

Oh Lord, set me free!
Set me free!
Come on and set me free!

Underground, the German Casanova
Underground, The Panamanian Queen
He whispers, "Down here, the law will never find you.
Down here I am your God and King"

It's a sin to sit and just do nothing,
There's a special place in hell for me
Oh God I just gotta do something
I swear to God this is happening

Oh Love, set me free!
Set me free!
Come on and set me free!

Oh Lord, set me free!
Set me free!
Oh, it could have been me.

Oh Lord, set them free!
Set them free!
It could have been me.

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about prostitution, about young kids being stolen from their homes, drugged, and forced to give them selves away. At their tender ages, they don't understand what's right and wrong.

    Streetwalker knows how to strut right
    She knows the truth
    Bad boys walking through the corridor
    God knows what they're gonna do.
    ^^^^^ the "streetwalker" is the prostitute, who has been taught how to "sell" herself. Te bad boys, are the "gangsters" or maybe the men buying the prostitution.
    the song mentions, she was stolen from her bedroom, which is a direct indication of being stolen and given to prostitution.

    Her head was spinning like a hurricane,---she's on drugs
    Tina was singing her name---being called for prostiution
    Old men like to rape her in the red light
    She's too young and numb to complain--- young and on drugs, she doesn't understand what's happening

    Little boy bought at the age of six,- bought for prostitution
    Down the street he's wearing a dress--dressed as a woman

    It's a sin to sit and just do nothing,---the singer feels bad about not doing anything about it
    There's a special place in hell for me
    Oh God I just gotta do something
    I swear to God this is happening--
    Look at his face, you won't see no innocence
    He's got so much experience--he knows everything from being a prostitute
