Testo della canzone Institutionalized (Suicidal Tendencies), tratta dall'album Suicidal Tendencies

Institutionalized - Suicidal Tendencies

Sometimes I try to do things
And it just doesn't work out the way I want it to
And I get real frustrated
And like, I try hard to do it
And I like, take my time
But it just doesn't work out the way I want it to
It's like I concentrate on it real hard
But it just doesn't work out
And everything I do and everything I try
It never turns out
It's like I need time to figure these things out
But there's always someone there going

Hey Mike, you know
We've been noticing you've been having a lot of problems lately, you know
And you should maybe get away

And like, maybe you should talk about it and you'll feel a lot better

And I go
No, it's ok, you know

I'll figure it out
Just leave me alone

I'll figure it out, you know

I'll just work it out myself
And they go
Well, you know
If you wanna talk about it

I'll be here, you know
And you'll probably feel a lot better if you talk about it
So why don't you talk about it?
I go
No, I don't want to
I'm okay
I'll figure it out myself!
And they just keep bugging me
They just keep bugging me
And it builds up inside
So you're gonna be institutionalized
You'll come out brainwashed with bloodshot eyes
You won't have any say
They'll brainwash you until you see their way
I'm not crazy
Institutionalized
You're the one who's crazy
Institutionalized
You're driving me crazy
Institutionalized
They stick me in an institution
Said it was the only solution

To give me needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy, myself
I was in my room
And I was just, like, staring at the walls, thinking about everything

But then again I was thinking about nothing
And then my mom came in

And I didn't notice she was there
And she called my name and I didn't hear her

And then she started screaming
Mike, Mike!

And I go
What, what's the matter?
She goes
What's the matter with you?

I go
There's nothing wrong, mom
She goes
Don't tell me that!
You're on drugs!
I go
No mom, I'm not on drugs

I'm ok, I'm just thinking, you know
Why don't you get me a Pepsi?
She goes
No, you're on drugs!
I go
Mom, I'm okay, I'm just thinking
And she goes
No, you're not thinking
You're on drugs!
Normal people don't act that way!

I go: Mom, just get me a Pepsi, please
All I want is a Pepsi
And she wouldn't give it to me!
All I wanted was a Pepsi

Just one Pepsi
And she wouldn't give it to me!
Just a Pepsi!

They give you a white shirt with long sleeves

Tied around you're back
You're treated like thieves

Drug you up because they're lazy
It's too much work to help a crazy

I'm not crazy
Institutionalized
You're the one who's crazy

Institutionalized
You're driving me crazy
Institutionalized
They stick me in an institution

Said it was the only solution
To give me the needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy, myself
I was sitting in my room
And my mom and my dad came in
And they pulled up a chair and they sat down
They go
Mike, we need to talk to you
And I go
Okay, what's the matter?
They go
Me and your mom
We've been noticing lately you've been having a lot of problems
And you've been going off for no reason
And we're afraid you're going to hurt somebody
And we're afraid you're gonna hurt yourself
So we decided
That it would be in your best interest
If we put you somewhere where you could get the help that you need
And I go: Wait, what are you talking about?!
WE decided?!
MY best interest?!
How do you know what MY best interest is?!
How can you say what MY best interest is?!
What are you trying to say?
I'm crazy?!
When I went to your schools
I went to your churches
I went to your institutional learning facilities?!
So how can you say I'm crazy?
They say they're gonna fix my brain
Alleviate my suffering and my pain
But by the time they fix my head
Mentally I'll be dead
I'm not crazy
Institutionalized
You're the one that's crazy
Institutionalized
You're driving me crazy
Institutionalized
They stick me in an institution
Said it was the only solution
To give me the needed professional help
To protect me from the enemy, myself
It doesn't matter
I'll probably get hit by a car anyway
