​The Slave

This song is by Noothgrush and appears on the album Erode the Person (1999).

Without cover she becomes
Inhuman like the pages in a book
Or the image on a screen
Her existence is no less valid
Than those that hold her down

His guilt is washed away
He hides the lie beneath
His wealth and shame

Forced to walk behind, she remains second class
Stripped of her Self and of her dignity
Denied the rotting human inside
Allowed the only power that he wants her to have
The Slave

(Our species has created a gender dichotomy which assumed that differentation is indicative of a superior / inferior relationship. The weaker sex is that which exploits the other)
