Swings ft. Paloalto – Upgrade 2020 (Prod. by Code Kunst) Show Me The Money 9

I’m far from perfect
And I’ve never wanted to be perfect
I just wanna get better every day
I have a lot of regrets, don’t wanna repeat my yesterdays
Really want to overcome my yesterdays
Now kids and their moms know who I am
Honestly it’s too much
I lived with emotion rather than rationale, without fear
But now I opened my eyes
I was frozen
Now I’m trying my best
So you can be my fan, so you won’t be embarrassed of me anymore
I’m not the only one getting criticized so I’m dressing up and losing weight
Although I’m not a model, I look pretty good now
That’s how I wanna get better
Don’t wanna lose to Corona
So I’m drinking a bottle of Corona
Sometimes, I wanna go away but I believe in myself till the end
Everyone struggles but they live life like a game
One mom fan told me her kid likes me
Now what do I do?
Kid, listen to uncle, you can make mistakes in life
It’s alright, no matter what anyone says
That’s what I want to tell the earth in 2020
Things got too cruel, everyone’s dying
Leaving people alone is also taking interest in them
So let’s all get better in our respective places

Upgrade 2020, yeah, this is dedicated
Through our trial and errors, we are educated
Upgrade 2020, yeah, every day is my birthday
Living like I’m born again, dying at night, returning tomorrow
Upgrade 2020, uh, this is dedicated
Through our trial and errors, we are levitated
Upgrade 2020, yeah, every day is my birthday
The me of today is different from yesterday, push it to the limit

When real hip-hop comes back
If my skills lack, then I’ll let it all go
But till that day comes, I’m the king of all lions
I make myself dangerous, always looking for that one punch
I get scared and nervous just like anyone else
But my specialty is, I don’t fall back just cuz I’m scared
This is hip-hop, this is realness
The world changes but there’s something that must stay constant
Hip-hop isn’t perfect either, it survives because it’s honest
Honesty is valuable, I hope I can keep it like a child
Show Me season 9, it’s still going
It’s because of the depth we protected
Making money comes after that
Art is dangerous, it’s a paradoxical healing
Do I sound like a geezer? Yea but rap
It’s not just about women, money and showing off
You need to know, if not, we’ll all fail
Be honest, you think we look like actors?
You think our fame will last forever?
But let me ask you, who’s keeping this season afloat?
I know your answer so hurry and be my fan
I’m not arrogant, just a student who’s filled with swag
Talking like the presidential election
Follow me so we can go to the future

Upgrade 2020, yeah, this is dedicated
Through our trial and errors, we are educated
Upgrade 2020, yeah, every day is my birthday
Living like I’m born again, dying at night, returning tomorrow
Upgrade 2020, uh, this is dedicated
Through our trial and errors, we are levitated
Upgrade 2020, yeah, every day is my birthday
The me of today is different from yesterday, push it to the limit

We’re not perfect, don’t ask others for things
Our values are different, it’s time to be generous now
Celebs on TV, so many of time so dumb
But that’s not something to kill them over, they all have panic disorders
Honestly, I lack so much, I need to see a shrink
Over 100 people I burned bridges with over things I said by mistake
I regret it a lot, I’m embarrassed by it
Only those who endured that have stayed by my side
I’m not worthy of saving anyone, I don’t have any power
But how many more people do you think are gonna leave?
I was shit on so much, I’ve fallen into a cycle of victimization
Hundreds of once true fans have become enemies
But there are many more reasons that life is good
Must I die if my flaws are revealed?
Thousands of cameras hover over me in the sky
Stop inputing coordinates, just take it for the memories

Stand alone never give up
I’m protecting myself with my voice
What’s noisy wasn’t the people
It was my heart
I ain’t gon’ lose, I ain’t gon’ lose
Baby, I ain’t gon’ lose
I can’t ever lose
Upgrade, must upgrade (to the top)

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