Lyrics

PRISONER

I AM A PRISONER
LIVING INSIDE MY SHELL
LOST DEEP WITHIN THIS HELL
NOWHERE TO GO

I AM A PRISONER
HIDDEN INSIDE THE MESS
HOARDING MY LONELINESS
IT’S ALL I KNOW

CHORUS:
SOMEDAY SOON I’M GONNA BREAK FREE
RUN OFF WHERE NOBODY CAN SEE
TAKE THIS BURDEN, LAY IT ON DOWN
SAY SO LONG, NOT MAKING A SOUND
SUDDENLY SO LIGHT I CAN FLY
GOODBYE

I AM A PRISONER
STRAIGHT UP OR OVER ICE
A LIVING SACRIFICE
TO WHAT I CRAVE

I AM A PRISONER
BLINK TWICE AND TURN AROUND
BEND DOWN AND TOUCH THE GROUND
I AM ITS SLAVE

I AM A PRISONER
RICHER THAN ANY KING
REFUSE TO SHARE A THING
OF WHAT I EARN

I AM A PRISONER
DO IT WITH ANYONE
IT’S NEVER ANY FUN
YET STILL I YEARN

I AM A PRISONER
LIGHT UP AND LET IT IN
A HUMAN SPECIMEN
OF WASTED YEARS

I AM A PRISONER
NO ONE CAN SEE THE KNIFE
AS SLOWLY, SLICE BY SLICE
I DISAPPEAR
