Once a paradise, now in despair.
Poor and broken, no reason to repair.
A fear of communism brought about your fall.
Or was it the rise of capitalism that started it all?

If you could hear them now,
your rebellious spirit would scream and howl.
Why do they lie?
And support the cause that led you to die?

Stand tall, brave and true.
Worry not about the fall.
Slowly risen up,
strength and will are your design,
be humble in all you do.
