Oppression 02:06
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!


We did a cover of the Malaysian band Carburetor Dung’s [ www.myspace.com/carburetordung ]1993 anthem “Oppression” (you can hear the original on their MySpace page [ www.myspace.com/carburetordung ]), released on our Malaysian cassette release on Revulsion Records [ 97-shiki.com/www.myspace.com/revulsionrecords ]. We also posted about it [ 97-shiki.com/2008/09/23/oppression/ ]. The release has 7 songs: Brother, Massachusetts, Firefighter, Disassemble, Hurts My Head (released on our 7″ vinyl), as well as Short of Breath (released as a bonus digital download with the 7″), and Oppression.
