Slave (Freedom’s Ninja)
This song has been a few years in the making. Although not complicated, it is a theme that took some time to consider the various aspects from which it could be approached. In my search to find words to describe the impetus that would have driven one man to want to enslave another, I was at a loss. So the beginning of this track remains instrumental however is intended to represent the motivation to undertake the task; and the long sea voyage to places unknown, in order to capture and enslave other humans.
Being the dreamer that I sometimes am, I decided to turn the tables a bit from the typical tales from history.
The major character of this story is an individual that was taken aboard ship and securely chained; as the story typically goes and destined to be committed to a life of servitude like the many others before. Only this time, they captured the wrong Ohne. It is sometimes interesting how things can change at the flip of a coin.
This Ohne, was enlightened. A deliverer from some “distant” place; learned in the arts of stealth, power, deception and speed; he was set on a mission to change the tides of time, by whatever means deemed possible and necessary. Sound familiar?
Having learned through his enlightenment that the most efficient method of neutralizing any threat, is from the inside; the mission begins. Assisted, cloaked and hidden by the arrogance of his captors; who believe it is their destiny to subjugate everyone to their will, it is his destiny to move unobstructed in the shadows of their lives and obtain true infiltration, on behalf of the downtrodden.
To the enslaver; religious, government or radical…..
