루싸이트 토끼 (Lucite Tokki) – 콩벌레 (Pill Bug) [Hangeul, Romanization & Translation]

 

A short, sweetly sad song from the Tokki’s latest LP “L+” (aka Lucite Tokki 4). The Lucite_Tokki_profilepiano accompaniment reminds me of a classical etude, or a Chopin Prelude… simple yet pensive. And the video is very moving. YeJin tells me the song is “kind of like a letter written to an old friend.” We hope this song touches your heart.

루싸이트 토끼 (Lucite Tokki) – 콩벌레 (Pill Bug)

태어나고 자라서 숨을 거두는 것까지

t’ae-eo na-go ja-ra-seo sum-eul geo-du-neun geo-kka-ji

모든 것이 자연스레 시작돼

mo-deun geo-shi ja-yeon-seu-re shi-jak-dwae

자연스레 이뤄지는 일인데

ja-yeon-seu-re i-rweo-ji-neun i-rin-de

왜 이렇게 믿기지가 않고 생각할수록

wae i-reot-ke mit-ki-ji-ga an-ko saeng-gak-har-su-rok

마음이 슬퍼질까

ma-eum-i seul-p’eo-jil-kka

 

우리 앞에 또 어떤 일들이 남아있을까

u-ri a-p’e ddo eo-ddeon il-deu-ri na-ma-i-seul-kka

아무것도 알 수 없어서 우리는

a-mu-geot-do ar su eop-seo-seo u-ri-neun

한참 동안 서로 얘길 나누다

han-cham dong-an seo-ro ae-kil na-nu-da

집으로 돌아가 잠들기 전에

ji-beu-ro do-ra-ga jam-deul-gi jeo-ne

 

콩벌레처럼 몸을 작게 더 작게 말아

k’ong-beor-le-cheo-reom mo-meul jak-ke teo jak-ke ma-ra

움추리고 몸서리치며 울기도 여러 날

um-chu-ri-go mom-seo-ch’i-myeo ul-gi-do yeo-reo nal

 

그래도 너무 걱정하지는 말자

keu-rae-do neo-mu keok-jeon-ha-ji-neun mal-ja

내 오래된 친구야

nae o-rae-dwoin ch’in-gu-ya

하나가 지나면 하나가 오듯이

ha-na-ga ji-na-myeon ha-na-ga o-deu-shi

슬픈 게 오는 만큼

seul-p’eun ke o-neun man-k’eum

기쁜 것도 오겠지 뭐

ki-bbeun geot-do o-gett-ji mweo

 

어떻게 될런지 지켜보자

eo-ddeo-ke dwoir-leon-ji ji-k’yeo-bo-ja

 

Translation:
Lucite Tokki – Pill Bug

From birth to death
Everything happens with its flows
But how improbable it is
And how sorrowful it is

What else would there be
What else would we know
Having a talk about it
Before going to bed

Shrink more and more like a pill bug
Shrink and shiver with the tears of many days

But let’s not worry too much about it
My old friend

One thing after another comes
As sorrow comes by
There will also be happiness

Let us leave them to flow
