Slave

Trapped behind bars of fear

I drown myself in anguished tears

Filthy and weak I stumble to the ground

Blindly following orders without a sound

Chained to the ankles day after day

Thrashed and battered as I lay

As I weep I wail with shame

Whilst my master receives all the fame

Rags of cloth cover my bones

As I listen to His constant moans

He is the ruler of this kingdom

He shall not grant us our freedom

People crying, people dying

Families hurting hear them sighing

Sold for gold we must accept our fate

Our burdens are heavy we are crushed by their weight.
