lyrics

Oppression!

“We walked so proud, we walked so free”
I heard you shout
Do all you want, say all the rage you have inside
Open your eyes, society
See what we got
You think you’re free, you think you’re safe
You know you’re not!

Oppression!

What do you read, what can you see
Between their lines?
What can you do, what can you say
When you’re blind?
Where should we shout, where should we turn
When we see their faults?
Are we so thick, are we so dumb
Just like they want?

Oppression!

We’ll raise our voice (no way!)
We’ll raise our fists (no way!)
Is this your face democracy, conformity?
We’ll criticise (no way!)
We’ll organise (no way!)
Where is our voice, democracy, stability?
What should we see? (nothing!)
What should we think? (nothing!)
Where’s our sight, democracy?
You hide the key!
You’re blinding me!

Oppression!
