Here's more interesting things in songs and lyrics tied to Depeche Mode or about the 1980s in general.

Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan performs with a high level of sexuality on almost every single Depeche Mode song, but Master and Servant takes the feeling to new heights. There is a direct theme of outright domination and submission with parallels drawn between power dynamics and everyday life. Dave Gahan’s Master and Servant waxes philosophically about how everyone is getting fucked in some way, with one leaving you fulfilled at the end of the day.

So, yes, Master and Servant is without a doubt about bondage and power dynamics in relationships. Bondage is defined as a set of sexual and voyeuristic activities based on varies degrees of physical restraint.  Popular bondage gear includes ligatures, corsets, caps, gags and things like the corde per bondage, an Italian accessory.

Here’s the lyrics to Master and Servant:

There’s a new game
We like to play you see
A game with added reality
You treat me like a dog
Get me down on my knees

We call it master and servant
We call it master and servant

It’s a lot like life
This play between the sheets
With you on top and me underneath
Forget all about equality

Let’s play master and servant
Let’s play master and servant

It’s a lot like life
And that’s what’s appealing
If you despise that throwaway feeling
From disposable fun
Then this is the one

Domination’s the name of the game
In bed or in life
They’re both just the same
Except in one you’re fulfilled
At the end of the day

Let’s play master and servant
Let’s play master and servant

Let’s play master and servant
Come on master and servant
