An uprising nation could never be a nation
When undoubtedly, it’s heading in the wrong direction
We need cooperation just to solve the problems
Or otherwise, things will remain the same
If we let frustration and hopelessness prevail
By all means, the nation is going to fail
With a little practical ???
??????? action
We will overcome our whole division
We need a sense of purpose
A sense of community
And a welcome hope of sincerity
?????
that blocks the flow of progress
I’m positively sure we must gain success
cause tug-o-war wouldn’t take us to our goal
is cooperation I’m sure
to bring the problems under control

Only when we start to see eye to eye
We will move to higher heights by and by
Only when we stop all the back biting
We will have a true country progressing
When we work together
through the stormy weather
When we file our motion
Into one direction
We will definitely be
Open up our eyes to see
That dawn, beautiful dawn
of a new day

Hatred and suspicion
Vice, poverty, and crime
Would only put this place in plenty turmoil
A little time and patience
good public relations
bound to uplift the character of this nation
If we to determine nation’s future
We must fight to get conditions better
Success must come either by force of by will
???? plenty room for improving still
We can’t let this country’s plans lay in ruin
Because all of us will end up suffering
It’s a long, long way ???
But we should all be willing and able
You can’t let this country wake by day
and sleep by night without goal
??? third world

Cho.

Some people real heartless
Heartless in every way
They do nothing else
But paint this country black every day
Their efforts are fruitless
??? production
They do not believe in
righting the country’s wrongs
The past wouldn’t make the future impossible
If we would decide to fight that struggle
Although mother nature turns against us sometimes
this country nevertheless should be all sublime
We need that love that comes from deep within
If we should see this place improving
???? country will rise or fall
Or else is a good chance for survival
Self-respect and pride along the way
is ??? I say
to see the dawn of a rising day

Cho.
