The Prisoner

This song is by The Godfathers and appears on the album The Godfathers (1993).

Sitting in my peter all alone
And the sun don't shine on my skin and bones
I'm left to rot in hell inside a prison cell
I'm doing time for something I ain't done
A policeman he said I pulled a gun
But I wasn't there oh God I swear

And I wish that I could be
Oh I wish that I could be
Yes I wish that I could be
So free, so free

Slop in slop out and then lights out
This prison life is killing me it's wearing me down
I crave for liberty they're pissing in my tea
Systemised brutality
The screws and the cons have it in for me
I play the waiting game a number for a name

And I wish that I could be
Oh I wish that I could be
Yes I wish that I could be
So free so free

So free so free
So free so free

I miss my girl and I miss my ma
I dream of walking out through that door
But much to my surprise I'm institutionalised
I'm on the inside and I'm looking out
Stare at the bars and I scream and shout
But no-one hears my plea they've thrown away the key

And I wish that I could be
Oh I wish that I could be
Yes I wish that I could be
So free so free

So free so free
So free so free
So free so free
So free so free
