sometimes i try to do things,
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 like, i take my time
and it just doesn't work out the way i want it to
it's like i concentrate on it real hard and it just doesn't work out
and everything i do and everything i try never turns out
it's like, i need time to figure these things out
and 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, you should like get away,
and like, maybe you should talk about it,
you'll feel a lot better." and i go "no, it's ok, you know
i'll figure it out, just leave me alone and i'll figure it out,
i'll just work on it myself." they go, "well, you know,
if you want to talk about it i'll be here, you know,
and you'll probably feel a lot better if you talked about it,
so why don't you talk about it?" i go "no! i don't want to!
i'm ok! i'll figure it out myself!"
but they just keep bugging me
and they just keep bugging me
and it just 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! institution!
you're the one who's crazy! institution!
you're driving me crazy! institution!

they stuck me in an institution
said it was the only solution
to give me the needed professional help
to protect me from the enemy, myself

now i was in my room, and i was just staring at the wall
and thinking about everything but then again i was thinking
about nothing. and then my mom came in and i didn't even know
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." 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 ok, i'm just thinking." 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 your 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! institution!
you're the one who's crazy! institution!
you're driving me crazy! institution!

they stuck 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,
they pulled up a chair and they sat down. they go "mike,
we need to talk to you." i go "ok, what's the matter?"
they go "me and your mom, we've been noticing lately that
you've been having a lot of problems. and you've been going off
for no reason. and we're afraid you're gonna 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 a minute. '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! institution!
you're the one who's crazy! institution!
you're driving me crazy! institution!

they stuck 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.</ljcut>
