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 that's why my brain says Rage, Rage, Rage, Rage, Rage!!

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, 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, Hell, Hell, Hell, Hell!!

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, leave me alone

Fred Talking:

Are we all happy to here tonight or what?
Well all I know is at a Metallica concert nobody's sitting down.
So everybody in those f**kin seats, stand the f**k up, Get up!!
Get the f**k up!! That's what I'm talking about.
And I want all you people right here on the floor,
who are fortunate enough to be here tonight, to move in pretty close,
come on in, you back there come on in, alright
I wan't you to repeat after me ok.

Leave me alone
Leave me alone
Leave me alone
Leave me alone and I'm about to break the f**k out come on
Leave me alone
Leave me alone
Leave me alone
Leave me alone and I'm about to break the f**k out come on!!

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
to reaching out again.

Fear of living on
natives getting restless now
Mutiny in the air
got some death to do
Mirror stares back hard
Kill, is such a friendly word
seems the only way
to bring it back again.

Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, leave me alone!!

    General Comment!?!?!?

    What is wrong with you people!?

    Did you even listen to Metallica?

    You probably should, because if it weren't for Metallica your precious Limp Bizkit wouldn't exist.

    This was such a joke... where was half the song!?

    Let's see Sanitarium has FOUR solos in it, how many did Limp play? Oh, zero, my bad.

    By simply saying that you enjoy this song, states that you have absolutely no concept of music whatsoever.

    Is there anything remotely appealing by Limp Bizkit?

    Ok... I'm gonna end here, because I'd go on a 2 page rant about how much I hate Limp Bizkit, how music is being ruined, and how Fred Durst needs to fornicate himself with a cactus.

    Metallica, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, The Who... what do these bands have in common?

    That's right! They've all been covered by Limp Bizkit! A band that hasn't even earned the right to touch these bands does a cover of them...

    Why Fred? Why?

    General CommentI like this cover, even though it was lacking something, just keep in mind how they had a fucking hour, with commercial breaks, leaving about 40 minutes. Metallica took up at least 15, so there we have 25. Five to get into the show, so 20 minutes. Five artists averages about 4 minutes per artist, so there we have it, about 4 minutes to do stuff. They had about five, though, but even so it was better than most of the covers there.

    Not only that, but it's fucking Nu-Metal. What the fuck do you expect from these guys? They only have one guitarist to do all this stuff and the turntables aren't enough.

    General CommentWhat the fuck!!!!! what is this? a fuckin lullaby?? welcometowheretimestandsstillnooneleavesandnoonewill..?? my dog could do a better a job while he licking his balls..what are we gonna have next?.. Britney Spears covering Master of Puppets..wait, come to think of it, i think it would be better than this shit. at least we get something more pleasant-looking to watch. And y did Kirk and Lars seem excited in the tour...i hope Lars was laughing cuz limpbizkit was looking like freshly circumcised chimp jumping all over the stage. Limpbizkit shouldnt do this kinda stuff..i thought LB was fine doing songs like hotdog or rollin but thats it. the guy has no talent what so ever. dont cover a metal song, and u certainly dont cover Sanatarium. Sanatarium is a masterpiece and its solo is considered one of the best 150 guitar solos in the world..what was he thinking?? it wasnt even cool to watch. wearing shorts, a tshirt and a cap and jumping on stage like a retarded ape??? he is not 13, is he??
    RAGE RAGE RAGE !! HELL HELL HELL !! fuck u fuck u fuck ...
    "leave me alone or ima break the fuck out" !! well the sure should have left u alone..or maybe ur the product of unresponsible parent who 'left u alone' to grow all by urself without guidance..
    shouting at the top of ur lungs doesnt convery agony, rage, anger, or any other feelings this song talks about.. did u hear how Metallica did this song?
    LB's fans are old rebel kids in their first teen years, and all he does is screw their heads more and more... such ppl deserve an inoperable tumor on thier faces.. and sorry raven i cant sympathize with them. if u dont have time, dont cover a song like this in the first place, u should be a bit smarter...I hope the next time LB covers a song, i recommend BSB's get down.
    (if i were LB, i would seriously consider TheKorean2908's advice and fornicate myself with a cactus)
    BYE BYE BYE...

    General CommentLet me give you some advice, LB- next time you do a cover, pick something you can actually play without sounding like idiots.
