slave caste - in obedience trudge along my friend
chained to - a master's fortune that you still defend
robbed of - the will to be any more than this
helpless - without wiser hands to guide your fate

someone came to set your free
left you standing aimless
believing that you'd run take your own existence
but fawning like a dog trying to win back favour
you've crawl right on back
to the one who held you under

now it’s so clear : complacent is how you've been bred
generations uncounted
whipped and broken you cannot fend
thus a lesson learned it seems
that freedom can’t be given
if not taken by show of will, it truly has no value

struggling to deal now that you're free
identity bound to the one you must flee

forever cast as the subservient fool
obsequious subject yet one who resents his rule

bound together slave and master
no escape from your common fate
perverse dependence, lashed together
sinking helplessly, you wait
until at last, you cast the torch
destroying all which you hate
all that your are, your master's splendour
your own pyre, by your own hands ... incinerate
