The Slave

You're a slave to rhyme
A slave to the clock
A slave to the time
Your secrets unlock

You're a slave to the just
A slave to religion
You're a slave to the trust
That has no origin

Stretch
Break free
Strike a pose, take a stance
Within these limits you can learn how to dance
Without these chains you are lost
Without these chains you are lost

You're a slave to the law
That clenches you tight
You're a slave to the claw
Of the dark, lonely night

You're a slave to emotion
A slave to belief
A slave to devotion
That offers no relief

Stretch
Break free
Why should you flee?
Within these limits you can be what you want to be
Without these chains you are lost
Without these chains you are lost

You're a slave to love
You're a slave to peace
To the stern iron glove
That will not release

You're a slave to your dreams
From which you'll never revive
But without borders, it seems
You could never survive

Stretch
Break free
Give all you know you can give
Because only within these limits can you live
Without these chains you are lost
Without these chains
You are lost
