잠자리의 집

상상은 여권이 필요없는 여행이다

코드쿤스트 ~ 파라슈트 (낙하산) (피쳐링 오혁과 도끼)

Code Kunst, “Parachute (feat. Oh Hyuk, Dok2)

 

YG Entertainment has changed in a big way the past few years, and, in my opinion, it hasn’t always been for the best. But the establishment of Tablo’s subsidiary label HIGHGRND has definitely been a positive, bringing together some massive talent and moving it to the forefront of the music scene. “Parachute” is just one song that demonstrates the creative talent of HIGHGRND, coupling producer Code Kunst’s skills with Oh Hyuk’s seductive vocals. And usually I’m not a fan of Dok2, but this song definitely made me stop and reconsider.

 

This talent naturally delves deeper than mere musicality, though. The creative lyricism is something that deserves to be translated a hundred times over despite (or perhaps because of?) its complexity. Youth should be something you throw yourself into; there is no knowing what your parachute is, or even if it exists, but faith in the parachute’s existence is the parachute itself.

 

 

한국어:

 

처음에는 왜 이런지 몰랐어

아, 당연히 모르지

하필 기억은 또 짧았어

딱, 바닥을 쳐보니

 

아니. 첨엔 참 어려웠어

도대체 뭐가 뭔지 모르겠으니

그래서 난 낙하산을 찾아

떨어질 땅을 기대하려 해

 

그 다음,

신호에 줄을 당겨

그 다음,

오늘 그리고 내일

그 다음,

감흥이 없는 무용담을 풀어야지

 

메케한게 번져 눈에 들어오네

난 고인물을 떠서 두눈을 닦아 fallin

애매하게 떠진 눈에 물이 찼네

감기던 눈을 떠서

한번 다시 닦아 fallin

 

메케한게 번져 눈에 들어오네

난 고인물을 떠서 두눈을 닦아 fallin

애매하게 떠진 눈에 물이 찼네

감기던 눈을 떠서

한번 다시 닦아 fallin, fallin

 

In back of the bach, in back of the ghost

Tinted windows, ambassador flow

Rose gold, clear diamonds, my platinum goals

내 태도는 여전해

안 내키는 건 하지도 않지만

내키면 청춘을 바칠 때까지

 

한 말을 또 하고 또 해, 난

말 많은 거 닥칠 때까지

인생은 한치도 모르지

딱 들이닥칠 때까진

뭐든 사랑해 왔네 내가 다칠 때까지

다 마칠 때까지 선은 긋지마

모르면 모르는대로

더는 묻지마

 

난 네 natural 8 뒤집는 pair, natural nine

Still a young rapper, outchea hustle and grind

Let’s get it till my pocket gets full, boi

As long as I’m alive I’mma do it, boi

Feel good, all my thangs so new, boi

Illionaire, HIGHGRND, no rules, boi

 

메케한게 번져 눈에 들어오네

난 고인물을 떠서 두눈을 닦아 fallin

애매하게 떠진 눈에 물이 찼네

감기던 눈을 떠서

한번 다시 닦아 fallin

 

메케한게 번져 눈에 들어오네

난 고인물을 떠서 두눈을 닦아 fallin

애매하게 떠진 눈에 물이 찼네

감기던 눈을 떠서

한번 다시 닦아 fallin, fallin

 

You win some, you lose some

Don’t hesitate, just do something

Just let it free, but never loose

I ain’t fallin, I be on my PARACHUTE

 

메케한게 번져 눈에 들어오네

난 고인물을 떠서 두눈을 닦아 fallin

애매하게 떠진 눈에 물이 찼네

감기던 눈을 떠서

English:

 

At first I didn’t know why I was like this

Oh, of course I didn’t know

Why was my memory of all things lacking?

I just hit the ground

 

No, at first it was quite difficult

I didn’t understand what exactly was what

So I searched for a parachute

I contemplated lying on the ground

 

Then, next

At the signal I pulled the string

Then, next

Today and tomorrow

Then, next

I’ll have to spin my uninspiring tale of adventure

 

Stinging, it spreads and gets into my eyes

I scoop up standing water and wipe my eyes, fallin

The water feels cold to my barely-open eyes

I open my eyes, heavy with sleep,

and again wipe them one more time, fallin

 

Stinging, it spreads and gets into my eyes

I scoop up standing water and wipe my eyes, fallin

The water feels cold to my barely-open eyes

I open my eyes, heavy with sleep,

and again wipe them one more time, fallin, fallin

 

In back of the bach, in back of the ghost

Tinted windows, ambassador flow

Rose gold, clear diamonds, my platinum goals

My attitude is always the same

I don’t do a single thing I don’t feel like doing

But if I feel so inclined, I offer my entire youth

 

I say one word then say it again

I keep speaking until I’m shut up

Life is not knowing a single thing

until you’re suddenly attacked

I came to love everything until I was hurt

Don’t draw a line until everything is over

If you don’t know, just do what you can

Don’t ask for more

 

I’m your natural 8 flipped pair, natural nine [1]

I’m still a young rapper, outchea hustle and grind

Let’s get it ‘til my pocket gets full, boi

As long as I’m alive I’mma do it, boi

Feel good, all my thangs so new, boi

Illionaire, HIGHGRND, no rules boi

 

Stinging, it spreads and gets into my eyes

I scoop up standing water and wipe my eyes, fallin

The water feels cold to my barely-open eyes

I open my eyes, heavy with sleep,

and again wipe them one more time, fallin

Ok, so I don’t play card games at all so I had to look this up, and it actually took a little bit of research. At first, a search for the terms “natural 8” or “natural 9” brought up Baccarat, but looking into it a little more showed that there is actually a traditional Korean card game, tujeon (투전), that resembles Baccarat. The version called gabo jabgi (가보 잡기) is particularly similar, which I think Dok2 might be referencing here.  [back]
