He bears no chain
No visible yoke
Still, free he has never been
No taste of freedom has ever been his.

He bears no chain
No visible yoke
While his spirit longs for freedom
A luxury he cannot afford
For, stuck in the world of dogmas.

He bears no chain
No visible yoke
But society has taken his free will away
And by the rules, he plays.

He bears no chain
No visible yoke
But he’s still not free.
Still a slave:
Still a slave!
Sadly!
Sadly!
Still a slave!
