Oppression
You pray 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 fear me
