about

A cult classic, the 1967 British TV show "The Prisoner" led the way for many modern blends of science fiction and psychological drama. The heavy use of allegory continues to keep the series alive and influential to this day. The Guardian wrote after the death of Patrick McGoohan, "Without the Prisoner, we'd never have had cryptic, mindbending TV series like Twin Peaks or Lost. It's the Citizen Kane of British TV – a programme that changed the landscape".

lyrics

PRISONER

Welcome home we're glad you're here
We're all your friends please have no fear
But just which side do you align
Tell me lad why did you resign?
You won't get your information from me
It's not as simple as A B or C
You'll find this mind you can't pillage
Where in hell is the village?

CHOR
Don't be difficult number six
You don't want me to open up my bag of tricks
Your vain attempt to flee is over
At the edge of the village you'll meet Rover
I've sympathy my boy I do
But you'll submit to number two
Your control is not won
Who is number one?

That would be telling we want information
By hook or by crook we'll know your resignation
We'll do it the hard way if you wish that's fine
Tell me lad why did you resign?
Try to break me if you can
I'm not a number I am a free man
You'll find this mind you can't pillage
Where in hell is the village?

CHOR
Don't be difficult number six
You don't want me to open up my bag of tricks
Your vain attempt to flee is over
At the edge of the village you'll meet Rover
I've sympathy my boy I do
But you'll submit to number two
One way left for such a man resolute
One of us will break degree absolute

I'm a free man you will never own me
Try to hold me you'll regret it you'll see
I've got your number arrogant two
I'll Be Seeing You

We're all prisoners here setting pretty on their shelf
Questions are a burden answers a prison to ones self
You'll find this mind you can't pillage
Where in hell is the village?
