The Prisoner

*************************
  

i have no idea why i'm here  
no charges were ever read  
and, ...no..., i don't remember a trial  

they just put me in this cell  
with no number  
turned out all the lights  
and threw away the key  

no one knows i'm here  

do they feed you?  

no, i eat the bugs that crawl across  
my face  

how do you get water?  

there's a leaky pipe  
i collect water in a rag and suck on that  
if they fix it, i'm dead  

is there any light?  

no, i navigate by touch and sound  

what about sanitation?  

there's a hole in the floor  
 
do you ever get to talk to anyone?
 

no, i'm all alone  

by the way  
who are you?  
how did you find me?  

i'm the voice inside your head
