Alter Ego
Got The Beat Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You won't believe my dangerous
더 늦어버리기 전에
You're my one and only remedy

그리 멀지 않은 것 같애
지금 눈앞에 쌓인 risk
문득 임계점을 넘겨 휙
바로 boom, boom, boom 터지는 때
상처로 전부 뒤덮인 심장
잿빛을 빚어낸 누군가
아직 끝난 건 아니니까
쉽게 포기하지는 마
익숙해진 소중함이 숨긴
당연하지 않은 작은 불씨
한 번 더 되살려봐
위태롭게 허물어진 벽이
가련하게 막고 있는 위기
더 이상 피하지 마

I bring the doom, I bring the bless
그 선택은 다 내 손끝에
메마른 무채색 대지에 (대지에)
한 그루의 희망을 심는 일 (나에게 달렸어)
(Ayo) yeah, I could be evil
(Ayo) a villain and hero
(Ayo) just look at my, look at my
Alter, alter ego
Wait 'til you see my dangerous
까맣게 물든 네 손길
내게로 파고드는 덫 ooh-whoa
You won't believe my dangerous
더 늦어버리기 전에
You're my one and only remedy, ooh-whoa

La li la li la da da da da
Baby, you can handle it
곪기 시작한 deep pain
한 순간에 삼켜가 too fast
여전히 무심한 그 눈빛에
Feel like boom, boom, boom killin' that-ish
괜찮은 듯이 숨 쉬는 매일
시간은 tick tock
Gonna be crazy
눈앞에 다가온 현실을
똑바로 바라봐, 봐

한순간에 불어 닥칠 ending
이대로 다 외면하지 않길
이제는 선택할 time
한 순간에 막을 수도 없이
우리 앞에 닥쳐오는 끝을
두고 볼 순 없잖아

I bring the doom, I bring the bless
그 선택은 다 내 손끝에
메마른 무채색 대지에 (대지에)
한 그루의 희망을 심는 일 (나에게 달렸어)
(Ayo) yeah, I could be evil
(Ayo) a villain and hero
(Ayo) just look at my, look at my
Alter, alter ego
기나긴 fight 싸움 끝에 느껴봐 new air
멈추지 마 놓치지 마 마지막 기회
막아낼 수 있어 가까워진 끝
전부 지켜내지 못한다면 이대로는 cruel

I'm not lying, I'm just warning
Alter ego 이젠 깨워
기억하길 we can save it
Do you hear me? Do you feel me?
I bring the doom, I bring the bless
그 선택은 다 내 손끝에
메마른 무채색 대지에 (대지에)
한 그루의 희망을 심는 일 (나에게 달렸어)
(Ayo) yeah, I could be evil
(Ayo) a villain and hero
(Ayo) just look at my, look at my
Alter, alter ego
Wait 'til you see my dangerous
까맣게 물든 네 손길
내게로 파고드는 덫 ooh-whoa
You won't believe my dangerous




더 늦어버리기 전에
You're my one and only remedy, ooh-whoa

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Alter Ego" by Got The Beat delve into the inner conflict and duality within oneself, portrayed as a battle between good and evil, light and darkness. The singer conveys a sense of urgency and impending danger, warning of the risks and consequences that lie ahead if action is not taken promptly. The idea of an alter ego, a separate aspect of one's personality that can be either benevolent or malevolent, is explored throughout the song.


The imagery of a heart covered in wounds and a dark, looming presence symbolize the struggles and obstacles faced by the singer, hinting at a past filled with pain and challenges. Despite the darkness that surrounds them, there is a glimmer of hope and resilience that urges them not to give up easily. The lyrics emphasize the importance of recognizing and embracing the complexities within oneself, even when faced with daunting circumstances.


The concept of choice and consequence is a recurring theme in the song, as the singer acknowledges the power they hold in shaping their own destiny. They express a mix of confidence and vulnerability in their ability to influence the outcome of their actions, whether it leads to destruction or redemption. The internal struggle between embracing one's darker impulses and striving for goodness is a central conflict that adds depth and ambiguity to the narrative.


Ultimately, "Alter Ego" is a reflection on the nature of duality within the human psyche, exploring themes of self-discovery, inner turmoil, and the eternal battle between light and shadow. The lyrics paint a vivid picture of a protagonist grappling with their inner demons and striving to find balance and resolution within themselves.
