Prisoner Lyrics

We want, information, information, information
Who are you? The new number 2
Who is number 1? You are number 6
I’m am not a number, I am a free man
Out on the run, kill to eat
You're starving now, you're dead on your 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, 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-defence
And 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
I'm not a number, I'm a free man
I'll live my life where I want to
You'd better scratch me from your black book
'Cause I'll run rings round you

Enjoy the lyrics !!!
The Jezabels are an indie rock band from Sydney, New South Wales that formed in 2007. The group's members are Hayley Mary (vocals), Samuel Lockwood (guitar), Heather Shannon (piano/keyboard) and Nik Kaloper (drums).

We are a thing that came out of a few chance meetings at Sydney University. You see, Heather and Hayley had been playing music together for a while. Inevitably came the journey south from Byron - being their place of youth - to Sydney for a foray into higher education. Nik and Sam were studying at Sydney University also. And you know, for some reason you just meet people...

We don't have a manifesto as such, but we do have definite intentions in what we do. We wish to play pop, but with a recognizable element of self-awareness. We wish to be emotional, but with a sense of certainty that our audiences won't walk away thinking that we take ourselves too seriously. What is paramount is an attempt to push this thing called the culture industry in some direction which makes it more human. (I guess this is all too ambitious but oh well... We do try)

Heather studies piano at the conservatorium and reads a bit too much Russian literature. Hayley looks toward her personal canon of pop ballads for guidance in all situations and believes we must return to the way life was prior to the poker machine epidemic. Nik is a science student who imbues his drumming with formulas and mathematical complexities. Sam is a country music-playing, Marx-spouting communist with a love of all things meaningfully subversive.

The Jezabels have released 3 EPs: Dark Storm (2010), The Man Is Dead (2009) and She's So Hard (2009).

Their debut album Prisoner was released in September 2011.
