Who is the master? Who is the slave?

Treat me like a courtesan
Tell me I'm your saviour
I'm never with the stranger
I used to know so well
Waiting for your answer
Is a kind of torture
Could I grow accustomed to this kind of hell?

Are you walking the dog
Cause that dog isn't new
Are you out of control
Is that dog walkin you
Haven't you had enough
Now your time is up
Baby show me your hell

Voices start to ring in your head
Tell me what do they say
Distant echoes from another time
Start to creep in your brain

So you're playing round
It's like it's a rewind
You blew it so often
That you start to believe it
You have demons
So nobody can blame you
But who is the master
And who is the slave?

First you say you love me
Then you wanna leave me
Then you say you're sorry
You play the game so well
I bought your illusion
You're the greatest salesman
How could I refuse you
When you sold it to yourself

Are you walkin the dog
Cause that dog isn't new
Are you out of control
Is that dog walkin you
Haven't you had enough
Now your time is up
Baby show me your hell

Voices start to ring in your head
Tell me what do they say
Distant echoes from another time
Start to creep in your brain
So you're playing round
It's like it's a rewind
You blew it so often
That you start to believe it
You have demons
So nobody can blame you
But who is the master
And who is the slave?

    The dog is mental illness known as the black dog.
    Are you in control or has the (black) dog ( mental illness) taken over.
    If you have ever had a mental illness or lived with someone who has then this makes perfect sense. With this in mind the rest of the lyrics speak for themselves.
