Bunny Wailer - The Opressed Song

The man oppressed will seem to do the worst
But with all he possesses
Self preservation comes first
His damnation comes from not 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 ascends
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 some peace of mind
