about

Turn and face the wall
It won't hurt at all
if you close your eyes
I promise, I wouldn't lie

Turn and face the wall
Place your hands behind
and don't let them see
the fear in your eyes

If I built you
If I made you
If I gave you everything good in me

If I sold you
to the other side
Would you promise salvation
would be mine?

(salvation would be mine)

This is, This is the Institute
where we break little girls just like you
and remodel them as Excellent Women
and remodel them as Excellent Holes

This is, this is, this is
This is the Institute
where the troops come to be shrink-wrapped and stupefied
all this flesh within a Clockwork that never cries
and before you believe it, you too will believe in
the Institute
oh the Institute
baby, it's the Institute
baby, it's the Institute.

Know your answer
doesn't matter
for the truth we've chosen is all we'll believe

Your machinery
defines your destination
we have the correction to what you perceive

Strip down to your guts and lay them open
Before you're fixed, you must be BROKEN.

Don't apologize
No one's gonna save you just because you're polite
This is the Institute
We own the Other Side
You want to gamble with us
You're gonna choke on the dice

Where the troops come to be shrink-wrapped and stupefied
all this flesh within a Clockwork that never cries
and before you believe it, you too will believe in
the Institute
oh the Institute
baby, it's the Institute
baby, it's the Institute.

I'm incurable, Love
You'll inherit it all
Everything that you see
You'll even get my disease

You've come to
the place where
we show you
the proper way to break little girls

Strip down to your guts and lay them open
Before you're fixed, you must..

This is the Institute
Don't apologize
(just realize)
No one's gonna save you just because you're polite
This is the Institute
Where the troops come to be shrink-wrapped and stupefied
all this flesh within a Clockwork that never cries
and before you believe it, you too will believe in
the Institute
oh the Institute
baby, it's the Institute,
it's the Institute.

This is, This is the Institute
where we break little girls just like you
and remodel them as Excellent Women
and remodel them as Excellent Holes

This is
This is the Institute
where the troops come to be shrink-wrapped and stupefied
all this flesh within a Clockwork that never cries
and before you believe it, you too will believe in
the Institute
oh the Institute
baby, it's the Institute.
baby, it's the Institute.
