Welcome Home (Sanitarium) (6:26)

Cover of One Night in Bangkok 1993 (April 15) (disc 1)

From One Night in Bangkok 1993 (April 15) (disc 1) and 248 other releases

Welcome Home (Sanitarium) is the fourth song of Metallica’s 1986 album Master of Puppets.

The song, following the control motif, discusses insanity and is narrated by someone consigned to a mental institution and the abuses suffered there by those in control. As the album Master of Puppets follows a similar track arrangement as Ride the Lightning, Welcome Home (Sanitarium) is consigned to the ballad track, as was done with Fade to Black, and follows a similar musical style - both songs shift style about 3/4ths through from restrained to incontinent and feature lengthy solos from Kirk Hammett.
