Intro)
It’s like hoot hoot
Yeah yeah yeah
Hoot hoot
Yeah yeah yeah
Hoot hoot
Uh

Verse 1)
My owl-like eyes stay up all night like out of habit
Again, I write and spit rap, although I don’t know how to hit the jackpot
The songs I’ve released until now feed me
so I muster up strength and stay on my grind again

I had a big dream. I’d like for all people on earth to listen [to this], gain energy,
let their hidden dreams out, and earn money
I want to become a pioneer who takes his stuffed wallet,
goes abroad to earn inspiration, then comes back

to South Korea and does something big, I am going my own way1)Possible reference to Dok2 and The Quiett?
according to my own rhythm, put away prejudices
Don’t ever disturb me when I’m concentrated on my work, bitch, this is very important work
God asked me to do this work, [it’s] a new page in history, you just have to listen

You just have to feel it, I cast a spell like Harry
Aparecium, Alohomora2)Aparecium is the ‘Revealing Charm’ and Alohomora the ‘Unlocking Charm’ from Harry Potter (see previous and following line too).
I open up your closed heart, take a good look at your hidden dream
I’m a dream spokesman, I exist for your sake, uh

Hook)3)In Korean, ‘owl’ means ‘부엉’ (bueong) and ‘hoot hoot’ means ‘부엉부엉’ (bueongbueong).
Hoot hoot, yeah yeah yeah, today too we
Hoot hoot, yeah yeah yeah, today too we
Hoot hoot, yeah yeah yeah, cry like this
Hoot hoot

Bridge)
I work all night, this mothafuckin’ life
I have to do what I have to do, even if I die tomorrow
I concentrate on today, there is no tomorrow4)Possible reference/homage to The Quiett’s ‘Tomorrow’ (see previous and following line too)
Facing art, I have pupils like an owl, yeah that’s all I know

Verse 2: Donutman)
I’m awake like an owl, so it5)music doesn’t become my side job
I open my eyes widely, I’m concentrated every night and even
help other people with their work, asking others for help is not my thing
Instead of sitting still and just observing, like a scholar,

I walk on my two feet and work, I silently plow the field again
I’m very different from you mythomaniacs who are always just talk
Do I have to say it so you understand? You can see it at a glance
Don’t open your third eye but open your eyes to reality

Rappers who are like blind people, listen to this and think once more
Your mother is very sad after having seen you rap
“Real recognize real,” you say those words like a habit
but strangely, not even one person recognized you

I’ll sew up that thoughtless, busy mouth of yours, then I’ll apply Albothyl6)A type of healing ointment that was labeled ‘Medicine of Hell’ due to the strong pain felt when applying it.
Then I’ll finish it off by putting a bandage with a stylish Versace pattern around it
Like OVO,7)OVO looks like the eyes, nose and ‘lips’ of an owl my eyes, nose and lips8)Reference to Taeyang’s ‘눈, 코, 입’ [Eyes, Nose, Lips] are like an owl’s every night
then I nest in my studio and cry every night. It sounds like

Hook)

Bridge)
