Slave circa 2012


Free from the chains
but the shackles are not gone

Free to think for yourself
but the bondage is still strong

Free to be you
but consumed with the material you own

Free to be us
but our legacy is all but gone

Free to be free
but still choosing to be owned

Free to be free
but still choosing to be owned

A slave,
still choosing to be owned
