Prisoner - Lyrics

I had to leave –
the place where I was born
I had to travel –
didn't know where I was going
Before I can get some sleep-
I gotta stand in line
I thought this rain would stop –
that turned out to be a lie

I want to be somebody –
not just a name and a number
I need to find some money –
Get out from under this pain

I see everyone around me
Do the things that they do
It's time I got to be somebody too

Folks like me –
Ain't got nobody
Nobody to blame –
no ways and means
I got nobody –
waiting by the phone
And what I do –
I do it all alone

If one day I climb –the stairs of eternal night
It couldn't be too soon –
that would be alright
I see people all around me –
do the things that they do
It's time I got to be somebody too
