Oppression you prey on us when we sleep oppression you chase after the tired the poor the

Weak oppression you know you mean only harm oppression you reach out with your long arm

But oppression I won't let you near me oppression you shall learn to fear me

Oppression you seek population control oppression to divide and to conquer is your goal

Oppression I swear that hatred is your home oppression you just won't leave bad enough alone

But oppression I won't let you near me oppression you shall learn to fear me

Oppression I don't see how you sleep oppression for your bleeding conscience I weep

Oppression you may have the dollar on your side but oppression from the gospel truth you

Cannot hide and oppression I won't let you near me oppression you shall learn to fear me

Oppression I won't let you near me oppression you shall learn to fear me
