Progress is ...

What progress is ...

we dont know,
the scholars are debatable.

Wise men has been known it all times.
Let you never guided by false teachings.

Because progress is ...

what you yourself recognize,
not what you learned.

Progress was ...

the first steam engine,
the first dynamo and the first light bulb.

Progress was ...

the first bike
and the first hot bath, too.

Progress was ...

the first steamboat
and also the first sounder.

Progress was ...

the first radio
and the first lunar voyage as well.

In short, everything created by man,
its benefits are not as weapons used.

But if it is contrary to the upside,
what to do then isn't taught us.

So let you in all times
never guided by false teachings.

Because progress is ...

what you yourself recognize,
not what you learned.
