"The Prisoner" as written by and Orton,beth/orbit,william....
She said - why don't you turn off the radio?
It's all bad news and you've heard it all anyway.
You know you get so wrapped up in the negatives
Why can't you just stop and enjoy the day?

I chase the sun behind the mist of rain
I traded roses for the deadly nightshades
I find a flaw in every pretty face
I appointed myself the judge and jury

She said why don't you quit with all the doom and gloom?
There's only so much sadness I can take
You have a choice to live or die, laugh or cry
So which one are you gonna make?

I chase the sun behind the mist of rain
I traded roses for the deadly nightshades
I find a flaw in every pretty face
I appointed myself the judge and jury

She said, you know where's a bright side if you choose to see it?
Why don't you give us both a break?
You have a choice to be depressed or to make the best of it
So which one do you want to take?

Shake it off chains
