잠자리의 집

상상은 여권이 필요없는 여행이다

프라이머리 ~ 3호선 매봉역 (피쳐링 빈지노, 팔로알토)


Primary, “Maebong Station, Line No. 3 (Featuring Beenzino, Paloalto)”

 

This is my unwind song. The instrumentals are chill, the rap flows nicely, and the meaning reminds me to take a step back to see the bigger picture. I first translated it almost a year ago, actually, but I had forgotten about it until I heard it play at my gym last night. I tried to fix up the translation a little bit, but it’s still pretty rough. Nevertheless, I couldn’t find a translation anywhere else.

 

한국어:

What time is it now?
너무 빨리 지나는 시간은
야속하게도 기다리지 않아
남기지 말자 아쉬움이란 거
한살이라도 더 젊을 때 달려
음악하는 게 뭐 대단한 건 아냐
정말 놀라운 건 이런 날 향한 사랑
살만한 삶이야
자그만한 아이가 다 커서
이런 랩을 하고 있으니까 말이야
어른이 됐지 ‘담배 끊어야지’라는 말
따위 의미 없는 버릇이 됐지
적응이 됐지 어이없는 일이 닥칠 때면
한땐 열을 내며 벼르곤 했지
친구놈은 연애 끝에 결혼을 했지
더 이상 자유가 없다며 넋두릴 뱉지
허나 표정은 절대 안 슬퍼했어
일 끝나고 만나자 매봉역 근처에서

시간은 참 빨라
어제와 오늘의 유행도 달라
시간이라는 화살은
얼마나 더 멀리 날아갈까?
시간을 아주 잠깐만 잡아 두고파
난 오늘밤만이라도
Yeah but it’s no, impossible.
Let it go man, let it go

흘러 흘러 흘러가 결국엔 흘러가

인생은 1절만 있는 게 아니지
계속 들어봐
어릴 땐 하나만 알고
크면 숫자가 늘어나
수년간 쉬지 않고 창작을 해내고
나니 많은 사람들이 날 아는데
때론 내 음악 덕에 여자들에게
멋진 남자가 돼서 웃긴 착각을 했네
그런 것도 다 한 때 란걸 알아서
그 순간을 즐겼지 본능을 따라서
누구는 제대로 시작도 못해본걸
난 꽤나 많이 누렸지 기분이 최고인걸
시간낭비지 미움이란 감정
난 이제 할거하면서 내 주변을 살펴
풋내기적엔 이런 게 다 희망사항
그때를 잊지 않고 감사해 항상
학창시절 때 작업실로 향하는
가벼웠던 발걸음
매봉역에서 개화산

시간은 참 빨라
어제와 오늘의 유행도 달라
시간이라는 화살은
얼마나 더 멀리 날아갈까?
시간을 아주 잠깐만 잡아 두고파
난 오늘밤만이라도
Yeah but it’s no, impossible
Let it go man, let it go

흘러 흘러 흘러가 결국엔 흘러가

밤늦게 3호선 지하철 타고
매봉역 앞에서 널 기다리는 중이야
외로워 마
우린 좋은 기억들을 나눌 수가 있잖아
그 에너지로 우린 바쁘게 또 일하다
내일을 또 기대하지
설레는 마음 잃지마
용기 없이 앞을 겁내던 날들도
지나고 나면
별거 아니란 걸 알지
그게 머리 아닌 가슴으로
삶이란 걸 알지
흘러 흘러가 결국엔 흘러가니
두려움은 두고가 떨지마
감지 말고 두 눈 뜨고 가
넘어져도 일어서면 돼
부끄러워 마
우린 여기까지 왔어
또 어디로 향할지
자갈길일지라도
서로 밝히며 나아가길
What time is it now?
여태 그래온 것처럼
또 달릴 시간

시간은 참 빨라
어제와 오늘의 유행도 달라
시간이라는 화살은
얼마나 더 멀리 날아갈까
시간을 아주 잠깐만 잡아 두고파
난 오늘밤만이라도
Yeah but it’s no, impossible
Let it go man, let it go

흘러 흘러 흘러가 결국엔 흘러가

시간은 참 빨라
어제와 오늘의 유행도 달라
시간이라는 화살은
얼마나 더 멀리 날아갈까
시간을 아주 잠깐만 잡아 두고파
난 오늘밤만이라도

 

English:

What time is it now?
Time passes too quickly
It doesn’t wait like promised
Let’s not leave regrets behind
We only have one life
and youth flees even faster
Making music isn’t anything amazing
What’s amazing is that the love coming to me
makes life worth living
That little kid is all grown up
so that’s why I’m doing this rap
I’ve become an adult, haven’t I?
Telling myself I should quit smoking
and other meaningless habits I’ve developed;
I’ve become used to them.
When I shut up about my inconsequential work,
I was on the lookout for something to open up.
Ultimately, my friends married their lovers
They spit out complaints about no longer being free
but their expressions weren’t sad in the least
After work ends, let’s meet around Maebong Station.

 

Time is quite fast
Today’s trends are different from yesterday’s
[How much further
will the arrow of time fly?]
I want to hold back time for just a moment
if even just for tonight
Yeah, but no, it’s impossible
Let it go, man let it go

Flows, it flows on, eventually it flows on
It eventually flows, flows on, eventually flows on
Flows, it flows on, eventually it flows on

Life isn’t comprised of just one verse, is it?
Keep listening
When you’re young, there’s only one thing you know:
that you will grow and get older
I’ve tirelessly created so many songs
for so many years without rest.
So many people recognize me, but
sometimes, through my music’s virtue
girls see me as a cool guy
and thus were amusingly deluded.
I know all of that is just a one-time thing
Those moments were enjoyable
I followed my instinct so
I couldn’t even try to properly start (dating)
I had quite a few joys, didn’t I? It felt the best
I hated wasting time
Now, as I work, I take care of those around me
This is what all rookies wish for
I never forget those times and am thankful
[In my school days,
my steps toward the studio were light]
at Maebong Station and Gaehwa Mountain

Time is quite fast
Today’s trends are different from yesterday’s
[How much further
will the arrow of time fly?]
I want to hold back time for just a moment
if even just for tonight
Yeah, but no, it’s impossible
Let it go, man let it go

Flows, it flows on, eventually it flows on
It eventually flows, flows on, eventually flows on
Flows, it flows on, eventually it flows on

Late at night, I get on the No. 3 subway line
I’m waiting for you in front of Maebong Station
Don’t feel lonely
We can share our good memories and
with that energy, work busily again
and anticipate tomorrow again
Don’t lose your fluttering heart.
The frightening days that we look ahead to without courage,
when those days pass,
you know we will never part.
[You know that is called living
not with your head but with your heart]
It flows, flows on, eventually it flows on
Hold onto your fear then let it go, don’t waver
Don’t close your eyes, open them and go
Even if you’re overwhelmed, it’s ok to stand up
Don’t be embarrassed
We’ve come this far
and we’re headed for somewhere new.
Even on a gravel road,
we’ll move forward as we discover ourselves.
What time is it now?
[It’s time to run again
like the things that have yet to come]

Time is quite fast
Today’s trends are different from yesterday’s
[How much further
will the arrow of time fly?]
I want to hold back time for just a moment
if even just for tonight
Yeah, but no, it’s impossible
Let it go, man let it go

Flows, it flows on, eventually it flows on
It eventually flows, flows on, eventually flows on
Flows, it flows on, eventually it flows on

Time is quite fast
Today’s trends are different from yesterday’s
[How much further
will the arrow of time fly?]
I want to hold back time for just a moment
if even just for tonight
