Institutional Man

This song is by Dio and appears on the album Angry Machines (1996).

Inside the walls I've made
To keep out all who reach for me
I might have lost my way
And I can't come out again

Don't come around here any more
You may infect yourself
Don't ever cross this line
You could see monsters in your mind
They're just like me

Have I erased all sense of touch
I don't feel anything

Sometimes they say I need
Sometimes I think I need
Sometimes I know I need
New parts for my brain

Most dreams they're black and white
But I must colour mine
Each day's another endless night of screaming
Oh shouting at the outside
Someone let me in

Set me free now no one can
Faces at the window
Stop the water, bags of sand
Institutional man

Sometimes they say I need
Sometimes I think I need
Sometimes I know I need
New parts for my brain

Set me free now no one can
Faces at the window
Lock the cages, tie my hands
Institutional, institutional man
