    "Institutionalized" is a song by the American crossover thrash band Suicidal Tendencies. It was released in 1983 as the only single from their debut album, Suicidal Tendencies. It is often classified as the band's signature song and would be re-recorded for the album Still Cyco After All These Years ten years later. The 1993 version was nominated for the Grammy for Best Metal Performance in 1994.

    When you've been inside an institution for a while you become institutionalized, which means when you get out of these groups, be it jail, or home for children, any place where you live in a group envirement , then you are released, you will basically try and do anything you can to be placed back in that situation, It happened to me as a teen ager, I was in one Orphanage and one Girls Home, when I finally turned of age I was released. I wanted to go back, I felt safe, but I was too old and had to chage my way of thinking or I would have ended in prison
