As a one comrade mentioned, hearing this song on the radio is “the one time in the US when atheism, internationalism and communism are portrayed positively on the mainstream media.”

Tang Dynasty - Internationale

唐朝 - 国际歌

The International

Arise ye workers from your slumbers
Arise ye prisoners of want
For reason in revolt now thunders
And at last ends the age of cant.
Away with all your superstitions
Servile masses arise, arise
We’ll change henceforth the old tradition
And spurn the dust to win the prize.

Refrain: 
So comrades, come rally
And the last fight let us face
The Internationale unites the human race.

No more deluded by reaction
On tyrants only we’ll make war
The soldiers too will take strike action
They’ll break ranks and fight no more
And if those cannibals keep trying
To sacrifice us to their pride
They soon shall hear the bullets flying
We’ll shoot the generals on our own side.

No saviour from on high delivers
No faith have we in prince or peer
Our own right hand the chains must shiver
Chains of hatred, greed and fear
E’er the thieves will out with their booty
And give to all a happier lot.
Each at the forge must do their duty
And we’ll strike while the iron is hot.

起来 饥寒交迫的奴隶 

起来 全世界受苦的人 
满腔的热血已经沸腾 要为真理而斗争 
旧世界打个落花流水 奴隶们起来 起来 
不要说我们一无所有 我们要做天下的主人 

这是最後的斗争团结起来到明天 
英特纳雄耐尔就一定要实现 
这是最後的斗争团结起来到明天 
英特纳雄耐尔就一定要实现 

从来就没有什麽救世主 也不靠神仙皇帝 
要创造人类的幸福 全靠我们自己 
我们要夺回劳动的果实 让思想冲破牢笼 
快把那炉火烧得通红 趁热打铁才能成功 

这是最後的斗争团结起来到明天 
英特纳雄耐尔就一定要实现 
这是最後的斗争团结起来到明天 
英特纳雄耐尔就一定要实现 

最可恨那些毒蛇猛兽吃尽了我们的血肉 
一旦把他们消灭乾净鲜红的太阳照遍全球 

这是最後的斗争团结起来到明天 
英特纳雄耐尔就一定要实现 
这是最後的斗争团结起来到明天 
英特纳雄耐尔就一定要实现 
英特纳雄耐尔就一定要实现
