Oppressor

by Megan Salter
(Basking Ridge, NJ, USA)

Intro:
Looking in my eyes there’s a lot to find
Debris from the pain left right behind
Can’t even fake a smile this time
Life is hilly but I keep falling on the climb

Verse 1:
Tears pouring out like a waterfall
Guess I can admit I’ve finally hit a wall
But not just any wall stands in my way
You’re my oppressor and I am your prey

Chorus:
You’re my oppressor
Professor of my flaws
Possessor of my happiness
Aggressor with no laws
Dresser of my sadness
My bulldozer of distress
Knocking me down before my knees
Giving me no reason to breathe
Scars run up and down my sleeves
Wanting everything to end
Please God put my life at ease

Verse 2:
Can’t fake an ego to disguise my insecurities
Stuck in a state of pain obscurity
Ghastly thoughts storming through my mind
Knowing my imperfections are how I’m defined

Chorus:
You’re my oppressor
Professor of my flaws
Possessor of my happiness
Aggressor with no laws
Dresser of my sadness
My bulldozer of distress
Knocking me down before my knees
Giving me no reason to breathe
Scars run up and down my sleeves
Wanting everything to end
Please God put my life at ease

Bridge:
Worthless, hopeless, loveless, wordless
I can’t keep living this way
What doesn’t kill me can only make me stronger
Or so that’s what they say

I’m oppressing this strife
Bulldozing you out of my life
Putting the pieces back in my heart on a shelf
Because now I’m finally learning how to love myself

Chorus:
You’re my oppressor
Professor of my flaws
Possessor of my happiness
Aggressor with no laws
Dresser of my sadness
My bulldozer of distress
Knocking me down before my knees
Giving me no reason to breathe
Scars run up and down my sleeves
Wanting everything to end
Please God put my life at ease

Chorus:
You’re my oppressor
Professor of my flaws
Possessor of my happiness
Aggressor with no laws
Dresser of my sadness
My bulldozer of distress
Knocking me down before my knees
Giving me no reason to breathe
Scars run up and down my sleeves
Wanting everything to end
Please God put my life at ease

Conclusion:
Talk is cheap
But thoughts cut deeper
As you come nearer
Face to face everything becomes clearer
I’m finally putting an end to my oppressor standing in the mirror
