"The Prisoner" as written by and Roland Orzabal....
Here behind the wall
I feel so small
Breathing but not perceiving
Here anger is me
Love sets me free
Feeling and not believing

Here in my mind
Biding my time
Waiting but not relating
Here anger is me
Love sets me free
The prisoner is now escaping

    General CommentThose lyrics are the ones found on the jacket, yet the eventual lyrics became the first verse repeated twice.

    Not only in music different from the rest of The Hurting, Curt also deliveres his most angry vocal ever.
