Contents: To the city of the God-King --
Fighters and Psalmists --
On long marches through blizzards --
Heaven and earth the wise leader tamed --
Iron-willed brilliant commander --
With the leader who unfolded paradise --
When he hugged us still damp from the sea --
Flowers of his great love are blooming --
He gave us water and sent us machines --
Let's spread the pollen of love --
Yura --
Growing pains --
Take the lead in world conjuring --
Eyes and ears --
From generation to generation --
Our earthly paradise free from oppression --
Two women --
Dazzling ray of guidance --
A story to tell to the nations --
Wherever you go in my homeland --
If your brain is properly oiled --
Logging in and logging out --
Do you remember that time? --
Pickled plum in a lunch box --
I die, you die --
Yen for the motherland --
Winds of temptation may blow --
Sea of fire --
Without you there is no country --
We will become bullets and bombs --
Neither land nor people at peace --
In a ruined country --
Even the traitors who live in luxury --
Though alive, worse than gutter dogs --
Sun of the twenty-first century --
Fear and loathing --
Sing of our leader's favors for thousands of years.
Responsibility: Bradley K. Martin.
