Welcome Home (Sanitarium) -Metallica

Welcome to where time stands still

no one leaves and no one will

Moon is full, never seems to change

just labeled mentally deranged

Dream the same thing every night

I see our freedom in my sight

No locked doors, No windows barred

No things to make my brain seem scarred

Sleep my friend and you will see

that dream is my reality

They keep me locked up in this cage

can't they see it's why my brain says Rage

Sanitarium, leave me be

Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Build my fear of what's out there

and cannot breathe the open air

Whisper things into my brain

assuring me that I'm insane

They think our heads are in their hands

but violent use brings violent plans

Keep him tied, it makes him well

he's getting better, can't you tell?

No more can they keep us in

Listen, damn it, we will win

They see it right, they see it well

but they think this saves us from our Hell

Sanitarium, leave me be

Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Fear of living on

natives getting restless now

Mutiny in the air

got some death to do

Mirror stares back hard

Kill, it's such a friendly word

seems the only way

for reaching out again

I saw this Vid to this song last night on MTV ROCKS and it was great I had to post the lyrics :D :D

WOW. I have never seen the video. I didn't think metallica had any videos before "one". But it is a great song. I rocks hard especially at the end. And it's in one of the best heavy metal CD ever Master of Puppets.
