Prisoner

The Saints – Prisoner (from ‘Prehistoric Sounds’, Harvest, 1978)
—-
You’re a man in a cage
I see you everyday
You’re the one who has everything

But your thoughts are disturbed
You don’t like what you’ve heard
You condemn what you don’t understand

And you think you’re happy, better than the rest
But you’re a prisoner like everybody else

Watch the light as it moves
Feel the eyes in your room
You are free you can do anything

And you think you’re happy, better than the rest
Still you’re a prisoner just like everybody else

(whistling)

Lock your heroes away
Put your mind out to play
Take a walk to the edge of town

As you’re dragged to the ground
Close your ear to the sound
But you’re safe ’cause it can’t happen here

And you think you’re happy, better than the rest
But you’re a prisoner like everybody else

And you think you’re happy, better than the rest
But you’re a prisoner just like everybody else

And you think you’re happy, better than the rest
But you’re a prisoner like everybody else

Yeah and you think you’re happy, so better than the rest
But you’re a prisoner just like everybody else

(whistling)
