"we want information, information, information."
"who are you?"
"the new number two."
"who is number one?"
"you are number six."
"i am not a number, i am a free man."
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA."

I'm on the run, I kill to eat.
I'm starving now, I'm feeling dead on my feet.
Going all the way, I'm nature's beast.
Do what I want, i'll do as I please.

Run, fight, to breathe, it's tough.
Now you see me (haha!) now you don't.
Break the walls, I'm coming out.

Not a prisoner I'm a free man,
& my blood is my own now.
Don't care, where the past was,
I know where I'm going... Out!

If you kill me, it's self-defence,
If I kill you, then I call it vengeance.
Spit in your eye, I will defy,
You'll be afraid when I call out your name.

Run, fight, to breathe, it's gonna be tough.
Now you see me, now you don't.
Break the walls, I'm coming out.

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man,
& my blood is my own now.
Don't care where the past was,
I know where I'm going.

I'm not a number, I'm a free man,
Live my life where I want to.
You'd better scratch me from your black book,
'cause i'll run rings around you.

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man,
& my blood is my own now.
Don't care where the past was,
I know where I'm going.

I'm not a number, I'm a free man,
Live my life where I want to.
You'd better scratch me from your black book,
'cause i'll run rings around you.

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man,
& my blood is my own now.
Don't care where the past was,
I know where I'm going.
