"Slave" first came to the attention of Weezer fans when an mp3 from the Glenn Sound Demos was released at the official site in late 2001. Apparently, the song was considered for single release, as the original sticker on pressings of Maladroit touted, "featuring 'Dope Nose' and 'Slave'".

In 2016 the song made a minor resurgence, as a poll on the fan club asked what deep cut song fans would like to see on a Spotify Sessions release. "Slave" won and made an acoustic appearance as the final track on the release. It was also played live and acoustic at Rough Trade records on April 1, 2016.



Love, barely alive
In your arms, slave
Dreams, taken too far
Every night, slave

Who put on your heart
'cuz I can't change, no

When you're on your own
You can see things
Clear, clear as a bell
And you're free, slave

And my girl will say goodbye
To the things we'll never try
