To be a slave means

To be a slave means
To experience constant pain
While your masters refer to you with degrading names
To be a slave means
To be driven insane
Used for profit in this cruel cruel game
To be a slave means
To have no rights
To be seen as property every day and night
To be a slave means
To be bound by codes and chains, to not have a voice
Being a slave was never our choice
To be a slave means
The pigment of my skin justifies me being sold
How could one live in a world so cold
To be a slave means to not be free
To be forced to do what masters please
Tears from our eyes, whips on our backs
Why do the innocent always get attacked
To be a slave means to still have hope, hope for escape
Hopefully we all reach a brighter day
