LY Tear Track 05: 낙원 (Paradise)

Lyric Translation
Marathon, Marathon
Life is long, travel slowly
42.195
At the end, it’s full of the paradises of your dreams
However, the real world is
different from what is promised
We have to race, have to accelerate, if
we signal our hazard lights
You, don’t even have a destination
Don’t even have scenery –
When you can’t breathe any longer,
you need to, you need to
It’s okay to pause
There’s no need to run without having reason
It’s okay to not have a dream
If there are brief moments in which you can feel happiness,
it’s okay to pause
Now I don’t race without knowing the destination
It’s okay to not have a dream, for
every breath you exhale is already paradise

We dream through other people (as if in debt)
We learn that we have to become great (as if a light)
Your dream, in fact a burden
If dreams can only be for the future,
what’s the dream I dreamt last night in bed?
Even if your dream goes by another name, it’s okay;
the laptop the buy next month,
or just sleeping and eating,
not doing anything but having heaps of money
As if dreams are impressive things
Just become anyone
We deserve a life
Whether it’s big or small, you’re still just you
However the real world is
different from what is promised
We have to race, have to accelerate, if
we signal our hazard lights
You, don’t even have a destination
Don’t even have scenery –
When you can’t breathe any longer,
you need to, you need to
It’s okay to pause
There’s no need to run without having reason
It’s okay to not have a dream
If there are brief moments in which you can feel happiness,
it’s okay to pause
Now I don’t race without knowing the destination
It’s okay to not have a dream, for
every breath you exhale is already paradise
I don’t have a dream
Dreaming dreams is oft scary
Just living like this,
surviving like this, that’s my small dream
Dreaming dreams, grasping dreams,
breathing breaths, it’s oft too much
The world says ‘so-and-so lives like this, so-and-so lives like that’
as they pour their curses on me
Yeah
The world has no right to curse me,
when the way in which to dream
was not even taught to me
For they were prettily crafted dreams, they’re tears of sleeptalking
I wake from those nightmares for you
Let’s try smiling every day now, in that paradise
It’s okay to pause
There’s no need to run without having reason
It’s okay to not have a dream, for
every breath you exhale is already paradise
Stop runnin’ for nothin’ my friend
Now end that foolish spring
Stop runnin’ for nothin’ my friend
Every breath you exhale is already paradise
