"Slave" is a bonus track of the Soulfly album Enslaved, released in 2012. The lyrics of the quasi-title track reference the slave master Zumbi. The last paragraph of the lyrics is in Portuguese, which is sung before ending with tribal percussion and berimbau (the only song on the album where berimbau is used).
Max Cavalera debated whether he would include this song on the standard edition or only on the special edition. This song has many elements resembling the standard tracks. Max said if "Slave" were to be standard track, "Revengeance" would be a bonus track. He likes "Revengeance" a lot with three sons collaborating and leaves "Slave" out as bonus track. As a result of the decision, "Slave" is only included on Japanese and deluxe editions of the album.
Master Master And who made him my master… Involuntary Servitude Punishment comes for you… From the cradle to the grave Slave - slave Remove the chains - emancipate Slave - slave Injustice Oppression For whom there is no protection Retribution Insurrection The middle passage in action From the cradle to the grave Slave - slave Remove the chains - emancipate Slave - slave I will Arise And Slay my enemies tonight Whippings Mutilations And limb amputations Grind, captive, confined… Deep within Has Been The anguish of my soul Face down To the Earth Through the skin you'll see my bones Grind, captive, confined… Zumbi E O senhor das querras Zumbi E O senhor das demandas Quando zumbi chega E zumbi E quem manda…
