The Lyrics

Well... all I can say is here is another one, in case you don't know the OS, turn on your radio to a rock station... I'm sure it'll be on within the next few minutes, always is. Have a Nice Day. : )
I’m told I need to get to grips
My sanity’s what this place feeds upon
Down the hall hear disturbed moans
My straight jacket has me confined
If I struggle it’s me they will sedate
Already happened one time
(Was a mistake)

These voices tell me not to leave
Often I tend to disagree
Help me escape is what I plea

This institution...
Damn institution...

Do not just pass me by
Cast your pondering aside
and adhere, for the sake of mankind
And you’ll assuredly die.
I guess this is good-bye
The quacks are taking me back inside

My release date feels overdue
An additional week I can’t survive
Alright, not anymore then two
Fading away to skin and bones
‘Cause they wont let me have Taco Del Mar
They tell me, “Here, give this a try.”

All of the rules I must obey
Have not followed in years, cliche
That’s why my status remains unchanged

This institution...
Damn institution...

Well my
Insanity is nigh
This can not be denied
It’s all clear, I’m not one of your kind
Don’t lie
Think it’s a T.B.I.
That has me so awry
I’m bipolar as Jekyll and Hyde

Let it be renowned
Wit remains unchanged
Padded cell surround
I am still deranged

Take a look around
Regain solid ground
(I remain deranged)
No chance for rebound
I’ll just mope around
(I remain deranged)
My psyche does astound
That’s what I have found
(I remain deranged)
Want to stay unbound

Another M.R.I.
My brain cells have all died
Disappear, I’ve no time to unwind
I’ll be back in July
I’m moving with much spry
Head first with the wall I did collide.

Should not have turned a blind eye.
The EnD.
