Lyrics

[Justin:]
Who is the master? Who is the slave?

[Madonna]:
Treat me like a curse then tell me I'm your savior
I'm livin' with a stranger I used to know so well
Waiting for your answer is a kind of torture
Could I grow accustomed to this kind of hell?

Are you walking the dog 'cause that dog isn't new?
Are you out of control, is that dog walking you?
Haven't you had enough, now your time is up
Baby show me your hand

Voices start to ring in your head, tell me what do they say
Distant echoes from another time start to creep in your brain
So you've playin 'round this like it's convenient
You do it so often that you start to believe it
You have demons so nobody can blame you
But who is the master and who is the slave?

First you say you love me, then you wanna leave me
Then you say you're sorry, you play that game so well
I'm not your illusion, you're the greatest salesman
How could I refuse you when you sold it to yourself?

Are you walking the dog 'cause that dog isn't new?
Are you out of control, is that dog walking you?
Haven't you had enough, now your time is up
Baby show me your hand

Voices start to ring in your head, tell me what do they say?
Distant echoes from another time start to creep in your brain
So you've playin' 'round this like it's convenient
You do it so often that you start to believe it
You have demons so nobody can blame you
But who is the master and who is the slave?
