Wonstein – X (Butterfly)

I know, this is too personal of a story
But if it’s not now, no one’s gonna take interest
Are you there? Can you hear me?
All of you who are in a similar situation as me

No dab, no dab
Okay, no answer, no answer
Don’t avoid me, don’t turn away
Even if you deny me, accept this
because I’m X

I was afraid of people hating me
So I always hesitated as I was pushed forward
Making me say things I didn’t mean and when I snap out of it
X, X
No dab, no dab
Okay, no answer, no answer

In my point of view, everyone in this world
Usually has an attitude of either a rapper or a producer
Don’t be jealous, just focus on what I show you
You can feel a sense of kinship for me but don’t be sad
Just like I did for 10 years, caught up with inferiority complexes
You wear a mask but you tell others to take theirs off
I know I’m no better either
An artist who has never bought a single CD
If you saw the real me
Would you really be able to call me a genius that easily?
Every time it gets hard, I pull out my hair
Making those around me feel uncomfortable
Now I understand that quote I saw in the bathroom
The closer you get to perfection, the more painful it is
As you live, opportunities will find you
Heart fluttering stories that’ll prevent you from sleeping
Even though that hasn’t really changed my life
When I look back, there were words that weren’t easy to say
Have I grown up enough to notice those things now?
The thought of that makes me proud of myself but then again

No dab, no dab
Okay, no answer, no answer
Don’t avoid me, don’t turn away
Even if you deny me, accept this
because I’m X

Now I have the strength
To look at my enemies with pity
Let me see how innocent your intentions are
LET ME CHECK YA
I feel embarrassed
The only thing I can do right now
Is to jump into the biased perceptions
And spread positivity
In the end, the things I did for myself become things for you
And the things I did for you become things for me
As you could see, I at least tried to act nice
WE ARE THE ONE
As much as I used music, I’ve allowed myself
To disappear after leaving behind truthful reviews
Quietly
X X X X

Finally, they acknowledge that we’re different
Using the thing that is rhythm
I’m trying to escape from this spider web right now
While they all dance
No dab, no dab
Okay, no answer, no answer
No dab, no dab
Okay, no answer, no answer

I know you all felt at least once
That friends who leave won’t ever come back
This is what my grandma said to me from behind
As I was tying my shoelaces to leave the house, angry
You need to come back home before it’s too late
You need to come back home in time for dinner

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