[Lyrics] Not Today

All the underdogs in the world
A day may come when we lose
But it is not today
Today we fight

No not today
언젠가 꽃은 지겠지
Someday flowers will wither
But no not today
그 때가 오늘은 아니지
The time is not today
No, no not today
아직은 죽기엔 too good day
It’s too good of a day to die yet
No, no not today no no no not today

그래 우리는 EXTRA
Yeah, we’re extra
But still part of this world
그것도 별 거 아녀
It’s not a big deal
오늘은 절대 죽지 말아
Definitely won’t die today
빛은 어둠을 뚫고 나가
The light pierces through the darkness
새 세상 너도 원해
You want a new world too
Oh baby yes I want it

날아갈 수 없음 뛰어
If you can’t fly, run
Today we will survive
뛰어갈 수 없음 걸어
If you can’t run, walk
Today we will survive
걸어갈 수 없음 기어
If you can’t walk, crawl
기어서라도 gear up
Even while crawling, gear up
겨눠 총 조준 발사
Ready, aim, fire

[Lyrics] 네시 (4 o’clock)

Listen to the song here.

어느 날 달에게
One day, I wrote
길고긴 편지를 썼어
a long letter to the moon
너보다 환하진 않지만
It won’t become brighter than you
작은 촛불을 켰어
But (I) lit a small candle

어스름한 공원에
In the park at twilight
노래하는 이름 모를 새
there’s a nameless singing bird
Where are you?
Oh you

왜 울고 있는지
Why are you crying
여긴 나와 너 뿐인데
When it’s just me and you here?
Me and you
Oh you

[Lyrics] Spring Day

I miss you
Because I’m voicing it like this, I miss you more
Even though I’m looking at photos of you all
I miss you
Time is too cold-hearted
I hate us
It’s becoming hard for us
to even see each other’s faces once
It’s completely winter here
Winter comes in August too
Time runs through my heart
Alone, on the snowy country train that’s left behind
(I’ll) take your hand and go to the other end of the earth
I want winter to end
How much longing has to fall down
like snow, will that spring day come?

Wandering in the void
Like a piece of dust, like a small piece of dust
If I were the flying snow
I’d be able to reach you
just a little more quickly

The snow falls from the trees
And little by little (you) go farther away
I miss you, I miss you
I miss you, I miss you
