Slave

The song Slave is from the album Trick Room

I don't need you, no
I don't need you
I don't need you, no
Sapping all my life
Sapping all my life
I'm so over you
I don't need you, no
I don't need you
I don't need you, no
Sapping all my life
Sapping all my life
I'm so over you

Doormat, yes that's what I was
But times have changed and I've moved on
My hardened heart gives you disregard
And I don't care much about you
I hate your face
Consuming so much space
And my life
Is better off without you
It took a while to realise for myself
But I finally worked it out

I'm not your slave
Locked up in a cage
Until the day
That you need me
To fix your life
The wreckage and the strife
Thinking I'll always be here for you
All the times I needed you in life
But you cowardly ran away from me
You had your run
All the damage done
And you can't take it back away from me

Nothing is what you're worth to me
Your dramas are petty felonies
My thick skin blocks you coming in
And feeling empathy towards you
Toughen up and suck it damn well up
Does that sound familiar to you?
Here's a taste
Here's a taste of your own

I'm not your slave
Locked up in a cage
Until the day
That you need me
To fix your life
The wreckage and the strife
Thinking I'll always be here for you
All the times I needed you in life
But you cowardly ran away from me
You had your run
All the damage done
And you can't take it back away from me

You want me to be here for you
Every second, minute, hour
Day and week of your freaking life
Listen here trick, get it right
I don't care about you, no
You had me, but you lost me, uh
All the times you drained me out
I've had enough, I'm getting out
Unlock the cage
Set me free
Open this cage
And let me be

Let me be
Set me free
Let me be
Set me free
Let me be
Set me free

Let me be
Set me free
Let me be
Set me free
Let me be
Set me free
