The Oppressed Song

The Wailers

The man oppressed will seem to do the worst,
But with all he possesses, self preservation comes first.
His damnation comes, from a burning free,
As destruction of the poor is their poverty, is their poverty.

While oppression is the poor man's choice,
Ah, but in this he does rejoice.
His burdens though heavy, he somehow bears,
As for his seed, there's only one who cares,
There's only one who cares.

Though his pilgrimage extends, his progresses ascend,
But as the prudent one exalts, he is gonna find his faults.
But as the wise man sees, he knows, he knows,
There's no rest in the west, so to the east he goes, to the east he goes,
Where he can find peace of mind, oh.
