{We want information, information, information
Who are you?
The new number 2, who is number 1?
You are number 6
I am not a number, I am a free man}

I'm on the run, I kill to eat
I'm starving now, feelin' dead on my feet
Goin' all the way, I'm nature's beast
Do what I want and do as I please

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

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

If you kill me, it's self defense
But 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 and now you don't
Break the walls I'm comin' out

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man
And my blood is my own now
Don't care where the past went
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
'Cos I'll run rings around you

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man
And my blood is my own now
Don't care where the past went
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
'Cos I'll run rings around you

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