Amen

 

Thank God that I can live

Thank God that I can breathe

Thank God that I can spit

Thank God that I can dream

이 아름답고도 추악한 세상을 볼 수 있어
I can see this beautiful yet hideously ugly world

누군가 죽어가는 때도 코를 골 수 있어
I can snore even when someone else is dying

나밖에 몰라, 그래 늘 기쁘거나 슬프거나
I know only myself, yeah always, no matter I’m happy or sad

누구로 다시 태어나고 싶냐 하면 난 나를 골라
When someone asks me who I’d want to born as in the next life, I’d choose myself

I can tell ya 내가 증명하지 못한다면
I can tell ya, if I fail to prove myself,

이 한 몸이 뒤진 후에 무덤에다 침을 뱉어
spit on my grave after I drop dead

Fuck you this is my own god rappin’

난 die legend 못 돼도 돼 cuz I’m my legend
It’s okay even if I fail to be a die legend cuz I’m my legend
Reference: Drunken Tiger – Die Legend (2007)

불엔 그림자가 없다는 사실을 너는 아니
Do you know that fire doesn’t cast a shadow?

그럼 불이 될 건지 빛이 될 건지. 그게 나의 question
Then my question is whether you’d be a fire or a light

난 불빛이 되리 또 낮엔 어둠이
I’ll become a firelight and, during the day, I’ll become a darkness
Wordplay (continued from the previous line): 불빛 (where 불 means fire and 빛 means light) is literally a light coming from a fire (or any source of lighting, to be more general). Because he is a “god,” instead of having to choose between fire and light, he can choose to become both.

환할 때 잠시 감고 남들 잘 때 다시 눈 뜨니
I briefly close my eyes when it’s bright and open them again when everyone else is asleep

고통을 느낀단 것조차도 I thank you
Even the fact that I feel the pain, I thank you

만약 신이란 게 있다면 I tell you
If there’s someone called a god, I tell you

 

Yo, this is god rap

종교 따위 없어 난 나의 신은 나이기에
I don’t have such thing as a religion because my god is myself

어떤 시련이 오든지 난 두 손을 모으지
No matter what trial comes to me, I put my two hands together

그리고 다시 내게 말해 Amen x3
and say it to myself, Amen Amen Amen

 

한 땐 나도 그저 너 같은 랩 지망생
I once used to be just a rapper wannabe like you,

아무나 쉽게 헐뜯고 쉽게 추앙했지 사이비처럼
easily slandering and easily worshiping anyone like a cult religion follower

그런 식으로 내 현실을 위로하고 싶었겠지
Perhaps that’s how I wanted to comfort myself in my reality

난 겨우 아마추어 랩퍼였을 뿐이니
because I was just an amateur rapper

난 다르다며, 내 취향은 싸구려가 아니라며
That I’m different, that my taste ain’t cheap,

거의 모두를 거부했지. 그게 멋인 줄 알았거든
I rejected almost everyone because I thought that was cool

예나 지금이나 믿음을 원하는 건 매한가지
Back then and now, I still want faith in the same way

그 땐 눈이 멀었지만 이젠 나는 나를 봤지
I was blind back then, but now I have seen myself

날 구원하는 것도, 날 밀어 넣는 적도
The thing that saves me, the enemy that pushes me,

까마득한 절벽도 다 전부 다 나야
the endless sheer drop, they are all me

어리석은 중생아 너도 신이 될 수 있어
Foolish human, you can also become a god
중생 (衆生; pronounced joongsaeng) is a Buddism terminology, meaning every living creature. In Buddism, it is said that every person has Buddha-nature within them that enables them to reach enlightenment and become a Buddha themselves. 

고개 똑바로 들고 지어봐 부처님의 미소
Hold your head up and put the smile of the Buddha on your face

예수님의 걸음, 알라신의 기도
The steps of Jesus, the prayers of Allah,

마리아의 사랑까지 모두 너의 안에 있어
the love of Maria, they are all in you

이건 무조건적 구원과 무조건적인 신봉
This is unconditional salvation and unconditional belief

나는 나의 신, 나의 세상. 내 모든 symbol
I’m my own god, my own world, my every symbol

 

Yo, this is god rap

종교 따위 없어 난 나의 신은 나이기에
I don’t have such thing as a religion because my god is myself

어떤 시련이 오든지 난 두 손을 모으지
No matter what trial comes to me, I put my two hands together

그리고 다시 내게 말해 Amen x3
and say it to myself, Amen Amen Amen
