​The Prisoner

This song is by D.O.A. and appears on the album Something Better Change (1980).

Apartment walls
Halls are small
Government building site much too small
These tiny boxes won't let me out
These tiny boxes are remote

It's a screaming mess
A television city dream
Your robot's eyes gleam
In my your future dream

It's not fate or chance
It's the money in the bank
Burn the timber and gather the brick
Drive'em in the fire, the bloody dicks

It's a screaming mess
And I am the prisoner
The prisoner
The prisoner

Go!

Forget about fate or chance
Keep the money in the street
Burn the timber and gather the brick
Drive'em in the fire, the bloody dicks

It's a screaming mess
A television city dream
Your robot's eyes gleam
In my your future dream
And I am the prisoner
The prisoner
And I am the prisoner
The prisoner

The prisoner!
