같은 날, 같은 달
Same day, same month

24/7 매번 반복되는 매 순간
24/7, every moment that always repeats itself

어중간한 내 삶
An ambiguous life of mine

20대의 백수는 내일이 두려워 참
A jobless twenty-something is afraid of tomorrow

웃기지 어릴 땐 뭐든 가능할거라 믿었었는데
Funny, right? When young, I used to believe that anything is possible

하루를 벌어 하루를 사는 게 빠듯하단 걸 느꼈을 때
Realizing that it’s hard even to live from hand to mouth,

내내 기분은 컨트롤 비트, 계속해서 다운되네
my mood is like Control beat, it keeps getting down
Note: There was a diss battle called “control diss battle” in Korean hip hop scene in the summer of 2013. Rappers involved in this battle used the beat from ‘Control,’ a song by Big Sean, featuring Kendrick Lamar and Jay Electronica (side note: ‘Control’ itself called out rappers by name and was responded with many diss tracks). Many well-known and rookie rappers participated in this battle (link to a Soompi article with timeline), and ‘I downloaded the Control beat’ became a popular slang meaning ‘to recriminate.’ In Konglish (Korean-style English), ‘download’ is often shortened to ‘down,’ which completes the wordplay here: “I keep feeling down like the Control beat gets down’ed.”

매일매일이 Ctrl C, Ctrl V 반복되네
Every day repeats itself like Ctrl C, Ctrl V

 

갈 길은 먼데 왜 난 제자리니
Why am I remaining in the same place when there’s a long way to go

답답해 소리쳐도 허공의 메아리
Even if I scream out of frustration, it only gets echoed in the empty sky

내일은 오늘보다는 뭔가 다르길
That tomorrow will be somewhat different from today,

난 애원할 뿐야
I can only beg

 

니 꿈을 따라가 like breaker
Follow your dream like breaker

부서진대도 oh better
Even if you crash, oh better

니 꿈을 따라가 like breaker
Follow your dream like breaker

무너진대도 oh 뒤로 달아나지마 never
Even if you collapse, oh don’t run back, never

 

해가 뜨기 전 새벽이 가장 어두우니까
Because the dawn right before the sunrise is the darkest,

먼 훗날에 넌 지금의 널 절대로 잊지 마
you, in the future, never forget yourself of now

지금 니가 어디 서 있든 잠시 쉬어가는 것일 뿐
Wherever you’re standing right now, you’re just taking a short break

포기하지 마 알잖아
Don’t give up, you know it

너무 멀어지진 마 tomorrow
Don’t get too far away, tomorrow

멀어지진 마 tomorrow
Don’t get far away, tomorrow

너무 멀어지진 마 tomorrow
Don’t get too far away, tomorrow

 

우리가 그토록 기다린 내일도 어느새 눈을 떠보면 어제의 이름이 돼
Tomorrow that we’ve waited for so badly soon becomes the name of yesterday as we open our eyes

내일은 오늘이 되고 오늘은 어제가 되고 내일은 어제가 되어 내 등 뒤에 서있네
Tomorrow becomes today, today becomes yesterday, and tomorrow becomes yesterday to stand behind my back

삶은 살아지는 게 아니라 살아내는 것, 그렇게 살아내다가 언젠간 사라지는 것
Life is not something you live along but something you live through, something you live through to get disappeared someday

멍 때리다간 너, 쓸려가 if you ain’t no got the guts, trust
If you keep spacing out, you’ll be swept away, if you ain’t no got the guts, trust

어차피 다 어제가 되고 말 텐데 하루하루가 뭔 의미겠어
It’ll all end up becoming yesterday What would each day mean anyway

행복해지고, 독해지고 싶었는데 왜 자꾸 약해지기만 하지 계속
I wanted to be happy, I wanted to be perseverant, but why do I keep becoming weaker

나 어디로 가, 여기로 가고 저기로 가도 난 항상 여기로 와
Where am I going, I try going here, going there, and to end up coming here all the time

그래 흘러가긴 하겠지 어디론가, 끝이 있긴 할까 이 미로가
Yeah, I’ll flow along to somewhere, would there ever be an end to this maze

 

갈 길은 먼데 왜 난 제자리니
Why am I remaining in the same place when there’s a long way to go

답답해 소리쳐도 허공의 메아리
Even if I scream out of frustration, it only gets echoed in the empty sky

내일은 오늘보다는 뭔가 다르길
That tomorrow will be somewhat different from today,

난 애원할 뿐야
I can only beg

 

니 꿈을 따라가 like breaker
Follow your dream like breaker

부서진대도 oh better
Even if you crash, oh better

니 꿈을 따라가 like breaker
Follow your dream like breaker

무너진대도 oh 뒤로 달아나지마 never
Even if you collapse, oh don’t run back, never

 

해가 뜨기 전 새벽이 가장 어두우니까
Because the dawn right before the sunrise is the darkest

먼 훗날에 넌 지금의 널 절대로 잊지 마
You, in the future, should never forget yourself of now

지금 니가 어디 서 있든 잠시 쉬어가는 것일 뿐
Wherever you’re standing right now, you’re just taking a short break

포기하지 마 알잖아
Don’t give up, you know

너무 멀어지진 마 tomorrow
Don’t get too far away, tomorrow

 

Tomorrow, 계속 걸어 멈추기엔 우린 아직 너무 어려
Tomorrow, keep walking, we’re still too young to stop

Tomorrow, 문을 열어 닫기엔 많은 것들이 눈에 보여
Tomorrow, open the door, we’re seeing too many things to close the door

어두운 밤이 지나면 밝은 아침도 있듯이,
Like there is a bright morning arriving after a dark night, 

알아서 내일이오면 밝은 빛이 비추니, 걱정은 하지 말아줘
there will be a bright light shining on you when tomorrow arrives, so don’t worry about a thing

이건 정지가 아닌 니 삶을 쉬어가는 잠시 동안의 일시 정지
This is not a stop but a pause for a brief rest in your life

엄지를 올리며 니 자신을 재생해 모두 보란 듯이
Raise your thumb and play yourself as if you’re showing yourself to everyone

 

니 꿈을 따라가 like breaker
Follow your dream like breaker

부서진대도 oh better
Even if you crash, oh better

니 꿈을 따라가 like breaker
Follow your dream like breaker

무너진대도 oh 뒤로 달아나지마 never
Even if you collapse, oh don’t run back, never

 

해가 뜨기 전 새벽이 가장 어두우니까
Because the dawn right before the sunrise is the darkest

먼 훗날에 넌 지금의 널 절대로 잊지 마
You, in the future, should never forget yourself of now

지금 니가 어디 서 있든 잠시 쉬어가는 것일 뿐
Wherever you’re standing right now, you’re just taking a short break

포기하지 마 알잖아
Don’t give up, you know

너무 멀어지진 마 tomorrow
Don’t get too far away, tomorrow

멀어지진 마 tomorrow
Don’t get far away, tomorrow

너무 멀어지진 마 tomorrow
Don’t get too far away, tomorrow
