Text (by Chong Tze Chien):

Look ahead, that’s where the future is
Cherish your yesterdays, dream your tomorrows and live your todays
Be brave enough to live,
To join hands to touch lives with all our might,
To make dreams with all in sight
A common vision brings us together
A thousand fibres join us together
