"Chains" is a track of the Soulfly album Enslaved, released in 2012. The song has Cannibal Corpse style of riffs which begins with doomy grooves and then gets thrashier towards the middle of this song, and then back to grooves featuring sitar tones until the song ends. Chains can be heard during the ending phase. This song is about an enslaved man facing the misery.
Master of creation This manipulation Means manifestation now... Fatal termination Divine intervention End the sufferation now... Build up tension Deterioration Killing operation now... Karma to burn Becoming undone Injustice is done now... Kill... Survive... Survive to kill Breath and breath - The air smells diseased Trenches and trenches - The middle passage ending Bleed in... Bleed out... No one will get out Five to one - One to five - No one gets out alive Master of creation - No more chains - Oppression Slave state - Slave hate - Feel this day of hate Five to one - One to five - No one gets out alive Break the chains and break away Break the hate and run away Break the chains and face the day Make a way, a new dawn fades Stolen away, a new dawn fades Stolen away, empty decay They fade away in the slave trade Lord of hate, lord of fate I resist - Desecrate Military dominance Communication ends Ordinary intolerance Chaos and insolence Ominous apparition Evil manifestation Malicious operation Corruption and tension Slavery is misery Inflicting heresy Wounds are open endlessly Hatred, animosity Torture masks and bleeding backs Whipping cracks and faceless deaths We'll rise and we'll defy it And send their masters to the fire... Destroy the chains - These are the chains of hate Destroy the chains - We cannot tolerate Destroy the chains - Where we were created Destroy the chains - The evil of man-made Destroy the chains... Destroy the chains... Destroy the chains... Destroy the chains... The chains... The chains... The chains... The chains...
