rest of the lyrics (they fit in the same way as above) : 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 shale 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 you shall fear me
