All the underdogs in the world

A day may come when we lose

But it is not today

Today we fight!

 

No not today

언젠가 꽃은 지겠지
Someday flowers will fall

But no not today

그 때가 오늘은 아니지
That day is not this day

No no not today

아직은 죽기엔 too good day
It is too good of a day to die

No no not today

no no no not today

 

그래 우리는 EXTRA
Yeah, we are extras
Extra here is a noun: a person engaged temporarily to fill out a scene in a movie or play, especially as one of a crowd.

But still part of this world

EXTRA plus ORDINARY

그것도 별 거 아녀
Even that’s not anything special

오늘은 절대 죽지 말아
Never die today

빛은 어둠을 뚫고 나가
Light penetrates the darkness

새 세상 너도 원해
You also want a new world

Oh baby yes I want it

 

날아갈 수 없음 뛰어
If you can’t fly, then run

Today we will survive

뛰어갈 수 없음 걸어
If you can’t run, then walk

Today we will survive

걸어갈 수 없음 기어
If you can’t walk, then crawl

기어서라도 gear up [gieoseolado gear up]
Even if you have to crawl, gear up
It seems pretty obvious that the above four Korean lines are inspired by one of the famous quotes by Martin Luther King Jr., “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” The same quote was used backward in A Supplementary Story: You Never Walk Alone.

겨눠 총! 조준! 발사!
Ready! Aim! Fire!

 

Not not today! Not not today!

Hey 뱁새들아 다 hands up
Hey underdogs, all hands up
뱁새 (baepsae; Korean crow-tits) refers to someone who tries hard to achieve something out of his league. Here it means underdogs who fight hard.

Hey 친구들아 다 hands up
Hey friends, all hands up

Hey 나를 믿는다면 hands up
Hey if you trust me, hands up

총! 조준! 발사!
Ready! Aim! Fire!

 

죽지 않아 묻지 마라 소리 질러 Not not today
We don’t die. Don’t ask, just shout! Not not today
묻지 마라 can also be interpreted as “don’t bury [us]” instead of “don’t ask.” 

꿇지 마라 울지 않아 손을 들어 Not not today
Don’t kneel down. We don’t cry. Raise your hands up! Not not today

Hey Not not today

총! 조준! 발사!
Ready! Aim! Fire!

 

Too hot, 성공을 doublin’ [deobeulling]
Too hot, doublin’ my success

Too hot 차트를 덤블링 [deombeulling]
Too hot tumbling on the chart
Tumbling as in gymnastics tumbling

Too high we on 트램펄린 [teulaempeollin]
Too high we’re on a trampoline

Too high 누가 좀 멈추길 [meomchugil]
Too high somebody better stop this

 

우린 할 수가 없었단다 실패
We couldn’t do it, failure

서로가 서롤 전부 믿었기에
because we trusted each other completely

What you say yeah

Not today yeah

오늘은 안 죽어 절대 yeah
We don’t die today, never yeah 

 

너의 곁에 나를 믿어
Trust me by your side

Together we won’t die

Trust that we are Bangtan
