Slaves (from Bad Religion) | Discography | The Bad Religion Page - Since 1995
Quote of the day: "I heard them say that the meek shall reign on earth. Phantasmal myriads of sane bucolic birth. I've seen the rapture in a starving baby's eyes. Inchoate beatitude, the Lord of the Flies." - 1000 More Fools

Congress runs your daily life, but they brainwash you so you think it's freedom
We've had a war every 20 years, they make you think we really need 'em
We're all slaves for our stricter masters
We're all slaves for our stricter masters
We're all just slaves for our stricter masters
We're slaves

You're brought up thinking it's bad to live in any country except this one
And when you grow into a man you realize it ain't too much fun
We're in a country of democracy, it's supposed to be the best on the globe
Living's expensive and it ain't too fun unless you form a high-class mode
And we're all just slaves for ournstricter masters
We're all slaves for our stricter masters
We're all slaves for our stricter masters
We're slaves
And we're all just slaves for our stricter masters, we're slaves!
