Bob Marley & The Wailers - The Oppressed Song

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
