BUZZ – Shadow

English lyrics

The unbearable things
That crush me as they happen
Are recurring again

Everyone remembers
Their bright future
That could never see the light

Break the submerged world
Break and keep fighting
Why is reality…

Cowardice in your obvious excuses
Concealing everything is useless
Everyone knows

Dissembler, you are a shadow
Even if you pretend not to
You lost control

Everyone watched
The coldly stretched out hands
You tried to hide

Break the submerged world
Break and keep fighting
Why is reality…

Cowardice in your obvious excuses
Concealing everything is useless
Everyone knows

Pray desperately
You have to come back into my arms

I can’t bring myself to let you go yet

Dissembler, you are a shadow
Even if you pretend not to
You lost control
You lost control
Break

Commentary

Break the submerged world
Break and keep fighting
Why is reality…

This part was really difficult to translate as there is almost no particle indicating what is the subject, the object, etc. So I didn’t even know if I had to take the whole paragraph as one sentence or not, or if I had to take into account the ‘Break’s. It is quite open to interpretation… If taken as a whole sentence without the ‘Break’s, I would have translated it as : Why is the truth fighting against a submerged world… something along those lines

I chose to translate 잠긴 세상 as “submerged world”, but it could mean “locked up world”, “closed world”.

Dissembler, you are a shadow

I don’t really know the pertinence of the word “dissembler” here. I actually found the word on an online dictionary and found it cool. It basically means “impostor”, “hypocrite”.
