institutional man lyrics – dio

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 anymore
you may infect yourself
don’t ever cross this line
you could see monsters in your mind
there 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 color mine
each day’s another end
less night of screaming
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
inst*tutional 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
inst*tutional, inst*tutional man
