The Lyrics

This is not to make fun of prisoners or prison rape, but if you were lucky enough to see "The Exonerated" on TV about a month ago this is a very true portrayal of prison. I have personally never experienced most of this, but did get held 12 hours in a drunk tank one time and get my license restricted so again we have the same thing here in common with my other parodies-the truth ( funny or not )
I say you are mine
Long as you're my cellmate, doing time
They're lying so you said
You wish it was a bad dream
Spinning in your head
Cops "You have the right to remain"
"Silent or we'll use against you what you say-in court"
So there it went, another chance
Wide awake you face the day
Your nightmares over....or has it just begun?

There's a place I used to hide
A safehouse that I ran to in the night
Relax man, you were there
But only were, the passenger, and you were scared
It's a place like hell on Earth
To avoid a shank, respect the gangs
And face the mistakes of your crime
Surreal is this, another world
Suddenly, you hear the screams
Of this new super prison

I-I'll be watching what you do
I-I'm gonna be spitting in your food
I-I will watch you every night
I-I am sitting next to you....the guards are watching me

If you open your mouth to me
I won't take your anal virginity
The walls you are within
Aren't coming down, new nightmares begin
Living in a 6 by 9
Not safe from pain, try to remain sane
Don't let them see you cry
One time ticket lead straight to jail
Master of escape yeah, you can theorize
Wear a disguise, you can steal a ride but...

(repeat chorus)

For first time a couple days, I heard Silent Lucidity for the first time and what a beautiful song it is. Now I can finally vote and comment on this song, since I'm listening to it again as I read this. Really good, Ant, and right on with the original.

Thanks Scrawny Johnny. I think most people have heard this song as it got massive airplay when it came out and a video as well ( that's when MTV actually played videos). IndyGent's version "Silent Humidity" is the only other parody of this OS and is very funny.
