中國國歌 香港版 Chinese National Anthem

起来!不愿做奴隶的人们! Arise, ye who refuse to be slaves;

把我们的血肉,With our very flesh and blood

筑成我们新的长城!Let us build our new Great Wall!

中华民族到了最危险的时候,The Peoples of China are in the most critical time,

每个人被迫着发出最后的吼声。Everybody must roar his defiance.

起来!起来!起来!Arise! Arise! Arise!

我们万众一心, Millions of hearts with one mind,

冒着敌人的炮火,Brave the enemy's gunfire,

前进!March on!

冒着敌人的炮火,前进!Brave the enemy's gunfire,

前进!前进!进!March on! March on! March on, on!

If the emergence of a nation defined by our founding father of not seeing oneself as slave and the struggle/conflict must continue and be celebrated through generations...

then as per Hong Kong Government recommendation, we being the descendents of former slaves shall enjoy the luxuries of life as means to defy slavery and to uphold our awareness.

Lyrics: Arise, ye who refuse to be slaves; > Images: Children enjoying education in a chinese style interior classroom.

Lyrics: With our very flesh and blood > Images: Family having a warm feast (Norman Rockwell style).

Lyrics: The Peoples of China are in the most dangerous time, > Images: People having check up by the Hong Kong medicals.

Lyrics: Brave the enemy's gunfire, March on! > Images: People enjoy viewing sexy models doing the runway show.

Good slave is not quite sure if our government being différance in meaning or just being purely deconstructivist of our nation's founding principle? (... of course good slave mean architecturally speaking)
