    Oh sure, Fella, I'd love to tell you why. But from what I understand from reading the papers, that's why you're in the dire straights you're in. Someone's always telling you why, and you go off on your merry way, confindent in your perception of why. Let me ask you this: has it ever occurred to you to find out why yourself? Would it kill you to lift a finger, be good citizen, and ask yourself, "why?" I know hardened criminals who've figured out why while they were doing a dime up at "Q." So why not you?

    I don't know why, I almost found out but a big bubble came to the surface of the water and pushed me back to the island before I could find out.

    Runaway by Del Shannon

    As I walk along I wonder what went wrong
    With our love, a love that was so strong
    And as I still walk on, I think of the things we've done
    Together, while our hearts were young

    I'm a walkin' in the rain
    Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain
    Wishin' you were here by me to end this misery
    And I wonder. I wa-wa-wa-wa-wonder why
    Ah-why-why-why-why-why she ran away
    And I wonder where she will stay
    My little runaway, run-run-run-run-runaway

    I'm a walkin' in the rain
    Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain
    Wishin' you were here by me to end this misery
    And I wonder. I wa-wa-wa-wa-wonder why
    Ah-why-why-why-why-why she ran away
    And I wonder where she will stay
    My little runaway, run-run-run-run-runaway

    I'm a walkin' in the rain
    Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain
    Wishin' you were here by me to end this misery
    And I wonder. I wa-wa-wa-wa-wonder why
    Ah-why-why-why-why-why she ran away
    And I wonder where she will stay
    My little runaway, a-run-run-run-run-runaway
    A-run-run-run-run-runaway

    Tell Me Why
    Lennon/McCartney

    Tell me why you cried
    And why you lied to me
    Tell me why you cried
    And why you lied to me

    Well I gave you everything I had
    But you left me sitting on my own
    Did you have to treat me oh so bad
    All I do is hang my head and moan

    Tell me why you cried
    And why you lied to me
    Tell me why you cried
    And why you lied to me

    If there's something I have said or done
    Tell me what and I'll apologize
    If you don't I really can't go on
    Holding back these tears in my eyes

    Tell me why you cried
    And why you lied to me
    Tell me why you cried
    And why you lied to me

    Well I'm beggin' on my bended knees
    If you'll only listen to my pleas
    Is there anything I can do
    'cause I really can't stand it
    I'm so in love with you

    Tell me why you cried
    And why you lied to me
    Tell me why you cried
    And why you lied to me

    WARNING! THREAD HIJACK! THREAD HIJACK! THREAD HIJACK!

    I was/am just a casual fan of The Prisoner, and never once gave any of it a moment of thought, as the metaphors, parables, symbolism and anologies are pretty obvious.

    About two years ago I woke up in the middle of the night, and realized what "The Rover" was, or could be. It represents "the prisoner's" self doubt, and it always occurs when he is about to make a breakthrough. The next morning I wrote the offical Prisoner fan club web site with my idea. The person who answered said that he had never heard that theory before, and that it had merit.



    THREAD HIJACK OVER...
