Epik High – BLEED


I’m mad
Took me nights to write just one line
It’s different from 10 years ago when I had so much to say
What I want to say and what I can say decrease over time
Only expectations and heavy responsibilities come after me
My current address is on top of a cliff
I have to either shut my mouth and tremble in fear
Or scream beautifully
I miss it so much
Times when I built a tower from bottom up

Back then I had nothing
But now, I’m afraid things’ll get stolen
Back then I had nothing to lose
But now I have so much to lose
Back then I wanted this moment
Right now, I want to go back
Man, it’s killin’ my vibe
and trippin’ up my rhythm
Now if I bring things up, it’s just a ceilin
Only giving me headaches
I’m in a place where fantasy disappears
Now the meaning of under and over to me
never understood and always overthinkin’.

What doesn’t kill me
only makes me bloody,
so I just bleed on this breakbeat
Spit another 16

My holey heart gets filled with night
But the sun always rises
It goes on and on

What doesn’t kill me
only makes me bloody,
so I just bleed on this breakbeat
Spit another 16

My holey heart gets filled with night
But the sun always rises
It goes on and on

I feel sorry for my fans
Loving me is hard
Because they walk with me through my ups and downs
When it was easier to throw me away rather than protect me
you are here with me through the rise and falls
Here’s my heart, here’s my blood
Imma give you my all
Our smiles always wither even before it blooms
But even unbloomed flowers can make a garden if you gather them

I can’t empty my anxious heart so I empty my drink
Drunk with inspiration stronger than alcohol, I can’t sleep
In the end, because of the joy I’ll give to strangers and my greed
My family’s loneliness always gets pushed back
Not even telling them the simple words of I love you
But these 16 measures stick to me so closely
I promised them to go on a long and far vacation when the time comes
But again today, I’m staying up all night in front of my desk

What doesn’t kill me
only makes me bloody,
so I just bleed on this breakbeat.
Spit another 16.

My holey heart gets filled with night
But the sun always rises
It goes on and on

What doesn’t kill me
only makes me bloody,
so I just bleed on this breakbeat.
Spit another 16.

My holey heart gets filled with night
But the sun always rises
It goes on and on

Retirement, disbandment
These are words that always stay in my mouth year after year
But it’s the 14th year of not being able to say it
Sometimes with phlegm, sometimes with blood
I stay up all night coughing
There ain’t a fuckin’ paycheck
to make it worth the pain.
But again, I take a breath and get on stage
And again, I open my notebook and throw up words
When you bleed, I will bleed with ya
When I bleed, will u bleed with me?

What doesn’t kill me
only makes me bloody,
so I just bleed on this breakbeat.
Spit another 16.

My holey heart gets filled with night
But the sun always rises
It goes on and on

What doesn’t kill me
only makes me bloody,
so I just bleed on this breakbeat.
Spit another 16.

My holey heart gets filled with night
But the sun always rises
It goes on and on
