기리보이 (Giriboy) – 술자리 (Let’s Drink)

Giriboy, along with Mad Clown and E Sens, is one the few rappers I respect not only for their rapping skills, but also for their artistic abilities and unique style. Yes, I listen to songs other than indie.

It’s been too long since I made a post. A part of it has to do with my returned obsession for hip hop songs, and I’ve just been busy in general… enjoying life. It looks like I’m finally getting used to adulthood and its lifestyle, setting my own goals, moving at my own pace, making sure to leave enough time for myself and others. Nothing too exciting, nothing too boring.
I went to the museum the other day. I thought of continuing my Grower/Shower series, but there really wasn’t anything new on display. There was, however, a collection on the top floor featuring artists from the “Stieglitz circle”, and a large portion of the collection was by Alfred Stieglitz’s own wife, Georgia O’Keeffe. Now, if you’ve ever been to a museum, chances are that you’ve come across at least one of her skulls or vagina flowers. Everyone loves them. I love them. But why? Is it the vibrant colors that stand out from all of Sheeler’s grey? Perhaps it’s the instinctive love we have for the very hollow we entered this world from. Whatever the reason, I wanted to find out. So I did something I thought I’d never do: I stopped and stared into the skull, pretending like I know art.

I don’t know. Symmetry? As someone who has given up games for the glory of symmetry, yes, definitely makes me happy.

Balance? It’s odd how the skull, even when it’s the largest object placed in the center of the piece, doesn’t really stand out. Nothing about this piece is intrusive, and it’s very easy to stare at.

That mountain? There are two things I appreciate the most in paintings: things that look so right but are actually wrong, and things that look so wrong but are actually right. A lot of the times these can be found in colors, shapes of light, or the ripples in the waters. That mountain is blue and yellow, but it looks so right. What else…

I don’t know. I didn’t know. I was standing there trying to figure out why it felt good to be staring at colored substances smeared on a piece of paper, but I couldn’t do it. Am I trying too hard to explain emotions with logic and reason again? Or it could be that I’m just not artistic enough to see past the surface. Maybe someone can tell me why, but until then, I’ll continue my mindless walks through museums.

Oh, and you know what’s more ridiculous than a video of a woman with a plate on her head eating canned spaghetti out of her left boob is? Three people watching and discussing about a video of a woman with a plate on her head eating canned spaghetti out of her left boob. That’s a level I never want to reach.

기리보이 – 술자리

I’ll be fine 걱정마
웃는 내가 보이잖아
아침이 밝기 전
마시자

눈물을 섭취해
상처는 전부 씻겨가겠지
I’ll be fine 괜찮아
걱정마

거짓말이 아니야
괜찮단 말이야
웃음꽃에 물을
왕창 줬단 말이야
일을 정리하면서
감정이란 것을 버렸어

신경이란 것을
쓰기 싫단 말이야
계속 그런 표정
지을 거면 말이야
30분만 더 있다가 일어나자

I’ll be fine 걱정마
잘 먹는 내가 보이잖아
공기밥 두 그릇
마시자

얼음판 세상은
국물에 전부 녹여가겠지
i’ll be fine 괜찮아
걱정마

거짓말이 아니야
괜찮단 말이야
웃음꽃에 물을
왕창 줬단 말이야
일을 정리하면서
감정이란 것을 버렸어

신경이란 것을
쓰기 싫단 말이야
계속 그런 표정
지을 거면 말이야
30분만 더 있다가 일어나자
Giriboy – Let’s Drink

I’ll be fine, don’t worry
Look, I’m still smiling
Let’s drink up
Before the sun rises

Soaked in tears
These scars will wash away
I’ll be fine, I am fine
Don’t worry

I’m not lying
I really am fine
I poured a ton of water
Onto my smile-flower
Working day and night
I threw away my feelings

I don’t want to think
I don’t want to care
If you’re going to look
At me that way
Just give me 30 more minutes

I’ll be fine, don’t worry
See how well I’m eating
More than ever
Let’s drink

A soup that melts this world
That has frozen over
I’ll be fine, I am fine
Don’t worry

I’m not lying
I really am fine
I poured a ton of water
Onto my smile-flower
Working day and night
I threw away my feelings

I don’t want to think
I don’t want to care
If you’re going to look
At me that way
Just give me 30 more minutes

Hey man! I just recently visited your blog while looking for some Korean songs’ translation, and I really appreciate not only your translations but also your thoughts and writings! I read very little Korean, but I’m a huge K-Indie music fan, so it’s really nice to find a blog with such neat and beautiful song translations, mitigating much of my frustration for not being able to understand the lyrics. Just wanna let you know how grateful I am. Looking forward to your updates and more recommended songs! : )
