Sometimes I try to do things
And I get real frustrated, and like I try hard to do it,
It's like I concentrate on it real hard
And everything I do and everything I try
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? You should maybe get away, and like, maybe you should talk about it you'll feel a lot better"
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 talk about it. So why don't you talk about it?"
But they just keep bugging me, they just keep bugging me and it builds up inside...
So you're gonna be institutionalized
You won't have any say

You're the one that's crazy!-Institutionalized

Said it was the only solution
To protect 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 even know she was there
And I go, "What? What's the matter?"
I go, "There's nothing wrong mom"
I go, "No mom, I'm not on drugs, I'm okay, I'm just thinking, you know? Why don't you get me a pepsi?"
I go, "Mom, I'm okay, I'm just thinking"
I go, "Mom, just get me a Pepsi, please? All I want's a Pepsi"

Tied around your back, you're treated like thieves
It's too much work to help a crazy
I'm not crazy!-Institutionalized
You're driving me crazy!-Institutionalized
I'm sitting in my room, and my mom and my dad came in, they pulled up a chair and they sat down
And I go, "Okay, what's the matter?"
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
But by the time they fix my head

You're the one that's crazy!-Institutionalized
