"Oppression" as written by and Ben Harper....
Opression
You prey on us when we sleep
Opression
You chase after the tired the poor the
weak
Opression
you know you mean only harm
opression
you reach out with you long arm

but opression
i won't let you near me
opression
you shall learn to fear me

opression
you seek population control
opression
to divide and to conquer is your goal
opression
i swear that hatred is your home
opression
you just won't leave bad enough
alone

but opression
i won't let you near me
opression
you shall learn to fear me

opression
i don't see how you sleep
opression
for your bleeding conscience i weep
opression
you may have the dollar on your side
but opression
form the gospel truth you cannot hide

and opression
i won't let you near me
opression
you shall learn to fear me
opression
i won't let you near me
opression
you shall learn to fear me
