Do you wish or command?
Are you under the blade?
Power lives off of your fear
And it keeps you in chains

You wanna rise like a star in the night
But something keeps dragging you down
You try to fly like an eagle in the heavenly light
But no one will hand you the crown

It's such a dirty game
That it fills you with rage
There's only kings and queens
And you're a pawn in their game

Of masters and slaves
We're divided that way
Are you a master or slave?
Do you rule or obey?

Now, you better learn your history
'Cause the future won't change
When they tell you it's the home of the free
Well, they must be insane

'Cause it's dog eat dog from morning 'till night
And only the strongest survive
It's the law of the jungle, only winners have rights
The losers relinquish their lives

So, you think you're made
When you have your fortune and fame
But don't you realize
Oh, someone's running the game

Like masters and slaves
(Like masters)
We're divided that way
Are you a master or slave?
(Masters or slaves)
Do you rule or obey?
Whoa, yeah

Like masters
Like masters and slaves
We're divided that way
Are you a master or slave?
Do you rule or obey?

Like masters
Masters and slaves
Like masters
Masters and slaves

Like masters
Masters and slaves
Like masters
Masters and slaves

Like masters
Masters and slaves
