Lyrics

 Chan   Changbin   Jisung 

I've been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

평생 잠들기 전까지

공허함 속 의미를 찾지

I’ve been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

평생 잠들기 전까지

공허함 속 의미를 찾지


1999 내가 태어나는 날

돌잡이 때 부터 펜을 잡았는데

3년 전 의미를 알게 돼

Hip-hop 하게 돼

가사를 써 내려간지

3년 뒤 알게 돼 간지

단지 난 간지나지 않은 내 삶 속

거짓 없는 가치 있는 일을

평소에 끄적이다가 진심을 담아

Rap을 뱉는 걸

주제를 정하지 않아도

모든 순간이 주제가 되고

Uh 삶의 이유가 확실히 없다 해도

내겐 확신이라는게 있지

후에 내 가사를 모아 이유를 잔소리하듯 증명하겠지


I've been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

평생 잠들기 전까지

공허함 속 의미를 찾지

I’ve been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

평생 잠들기 전까지

공허함 속 의미를 찾지


Why do we live? What’s the purpose?

Is it 42? Stop speaking nonsense

물처럼 흘어가는 삶의 시간

눈 깜빡할 사이 난 벌써 죽었어

Yah 그런 거 싫어

죽기 전에 후회하기는 싫어

호주머니 붙잡은 너네가 싫어

월급만 받고 꿈을 지우기 싫어

God gave us an option

어떤 길을 고를 selection, oh whoa

태어났을 때 부터 난 알아냈어

Brake 밟지마

앞글자만 밟고 누구처럼 살아


I've been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

평생 잠들기 전까지

공허함 속 의미를 찾지

I’ve been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

평생 잠들기 전까지

공허함 속 의미를 찾지


넌 합리적이고 이성적이어야 돼

You can't be a loser

언제부터 돈이 곧 목표가 되고

삶의 전부라고 모셔

내가 살았던 이 세계 목표는 고작

노란색 위인에게 휘둘리며

비틀 비틀 거리는 나의 모습 구경하기는 싫어

Let's talk about it, uh

넌 어때? 뭘 위해 살았어?

(Money, money, money, money)

그럼 꿈은 뭐야? 직업은 찾았어?

(뭐지 뭐지 뭐지 뭐지)

무의미함 속 해답은 없고

무식한 내 세상은 넓어

거울 속 나를 유혹하는

모든 거짓 증언들에 속지 말고

(제발 같이 빌어)


I've been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

평생 잠들기 전까지

공허함 속 의미를 찾지

I’ve been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

평생 잠들기 전까지

공허함 속 의미를 찾지

I've been thinking ‘bout my life

I've been thinking ‘bout my life

I've been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

Before I fall asleep forever

I’m trying to find feeling within this nothingness

I’ve been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

Before I fall asleep forever

I’m trying to find feeling within this nothingness


1999, the year I was born

I chose the pen since 100-day

But for 3 years I'm struggling

I do hip hop

I write down the lyrics

Learnt after 3 years of hardships

Not eloquent or overdone

But simply me

The truthful me

Usually I drag along, written with all of my heart

Even if I don't choose a topic

Every moment becomes one

"There's no reason for living"

I have trust in that

In the future my lyrics are collected, criticized by those around me


I've been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

Before I fall asleep forever

I’m trying to find feeling within this nothingness

I’ve been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

Before I fall asleep forever

I’m trying to find feeling within this nothingness


Why do we live? What’s the purpose?

Is it 42? Stop speaking nonsense

Time flows like water

In the blink of an eye, I'm dead

I don't want that

I don't want to die with regrets

I hate you who control my pockets

I don't want to erase my dreams for money

God gave us an option

Whatever road we take, selection

I knew since I was born

Don't push the brakes

Look forward and live for yourself


I've been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

Before I fall asleep forever

I’m trying to find feeling within this nothingness

I’ve been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

Before I fall asleep forever

I’m trying to find feeling within this nothingness


You have to be cooperative and kind

You can't be a loser

Since when was money the goal?

Since when did we serve it like a God?

This world I live in

That's its only goal

I hate myself being thrown around because of it

Let's talk about it

What have you been doing?

(Money money money)

What kind of a dream is that, do you have a job?

(What, what, what)

What's the worth

In life in the world

Refuses to recognize the solution

Everything that calls to me, it calls to me

(Please let's pray together)


I've been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

Before I fall asleep forever

I’m trying to find feeling within this nothingness

I’ve been thinking ‘bout my life

Is it better if I die?

Before I fall asleep forever

I’m trying to find feeling within this nothingness


I've been thinking ‘bout my life

I've been thinking ‘bout my life
