"Enslaved" as written by Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars....
Alright, alright
This life is what you make it, don't slide
You can't compromise
You click your heels three times your imagination runs wild
You can't analyze

So be sure that you are makin' the best of what, that you have
The truth is all within yourself
Don't be a slave, a slave to someone else

Higher, higher it's where we want to be in our minds
It will mesmerize
It's pleasure power that's what we devour
You can't have it crystallized
Now it's time to look at what you've done, with your life
And that path you found and followed in yourself
I won't be a slave, a slave to someone else
I won't be a slave, a slave to anyone

The question is, when it's all done
Who will stand, and I will run
The answer is on my tongue
I won't be a slave to anyone.

So be sure, that you are makin' the best, makin' the best of life
And that you have the truth, it's within yourself
And don't be a slave, a slave to someone else
No don't be a slave, a slave to someone else

    General CommentNikki said that him and Tommy each wrote a song for the Greatest Hits record, and that the two songs were Enslaved and Bitter Pill. I'm guessing that Enslaved was Tommy's song? It seems more like his style of writing.

    I enjoy this song, but now I know the lyrics... Ugh. Tommy shouldn't write songs. *sighs sadly*

    It's not all bad, of course - "The question is / When it's all done / Who will stand / And who will run / The answer is on my tongue / I won't be a slave to anyone" is alright. It's just the "So be sure that you are makin the best of what you have / The truth is all within yourself" that's absolutely mindblowingly fuckawful.

    Grrr. Nikki should ALWAYS write Motley's songs, with maybe a little help from Vince now and then (if Nikki + Vince = Piece Of Your Action and Ten Seconds To Love, that's kewl with me). You just can't replace Nikki's lyrics.
