On the run, I'll kill to eat
I'm starving now you're dead on my feet
Going all the way nature's beast
Do what I want 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
And 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 defense
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
And 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 round you

*guitar solo*

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

Not a number, not a free man
Live my life where I want to
You'd better scratch me from you black book
'Cause I'll run rings around you

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