CIX – Numb (순수의 시대)

Young face
But no expression
Rather than to dream
You learn how to give up

The line between good and evil is blurry
Lies sound like the truth
You know it’s wrong
But you turn your head as if you didn’t see

Everyone’s busy measuring
Covering their eyes and ears
The cruel pressure of silence
Can’t take it anymore, it’s suffocating

Ooh nah nah nah, lift up your head
Ooh my my my don’t just leave it alone

Let’s not be subdued
Let’s do something about it
Go now now now
Let’s go back to the start
To the age of innocence

Like the first time, let’s take a stance
Like the first time, let’s open our eyes again
Like the first time, dream your dreams
Let’s move everything here back to the start

I’m going numb
They don’t care no more
I’m going numb
They don’t care no more

Like the first time, let’s take a stance
Like the first time, let’s open our eyes again
Like the first time, dream your dreams
Let’s move everything here back to the start

This place
Has already become hell

A child who hasn’t been stepped on
Will soon be stepped on

Answers on a test (obvious answers)
Is the price of one’s life
It’s either first place or loser
Who is innocent of this?

Adults just overlook this
Calling our pain a rebellion
The indifference bruises the situation
Can’t take it anymore

Ooh nah nah nah, lift up your head
Ooh my my my don’t just leave it alone

Don’t be scared
Let’s make this right
Go now now now
Let’s go back to the start
To the age of innocence

I’m going numb
They don’t care no more
I’m going numb
They don’t care no more

Like the first time, let’s take a stance
Like the first time, let’s open our eyes again
Like the first time, dream your dreams
Let’s move everything here back to the start

Ooh everyday, everyone’s on the road to hell
Now the classroom is like a battlefriend, aiming for all our friends, bang
This grinding obedience grips us in chains
“Don’t resist, just smile”
Like a knot that hasn’t been fully tied
I’m always that offbeat
With a fight for cutting off worn out logic
What I want to discuss is the issue of innocence
What I want to save probably, it’s you

Ooh nah nah nah, lift up your head
Ooh my my my don’t just leave it alone

Like the first time, let’s take a stance
Like the first time, let’s open our eyes again
Like the first time, dream your dreams
Let’s move everything here back to the start

We gonna break this one

I’m going numb
They don’t care no more
I’m going numb
They don’t care no more

Like the first time, let’s take a stance
Like the first time, let’s open our eyes again
Like the first time, dream your dreams
Let’s move everything here back to the start

Hoping to be a bridge between k-pop music & k-pop fans who don't understand the Korean language.
