[LYRICS] Tablo - Airbag (Feat. Naul)

I need an airbag before I crash into the colossal sadness that is coming my way.

On nights I don’t want to go home, the taxi driver will purposely avoid the fastest paths. The chatty DJ on the radio won’t bring in guests that make me laugh or turn on songs that make me smile, conversations just get longer. I’d normally not want to listen to it and ask for the channel to be changed, but I don’t have a song in particular I want to listen to either. Keep talking and drown out the thoughts in my head. People laugh at words I can’t understand, and seeing as how the taxi driver, who normally has an expressionless face, is laughing along, it must be a popular punch line. Maybe I’m the only lonely island. In the end, a song requested by a listener is introduced. It’s a sad song that I once loved. Is that person alone, too, at a place where a long day falls into slumber?

I need an airbag before I crash into the colossal sadness that is coming my way.
I need an airbag. It’s too late to avoid it.

I have so many things I need to take care of; it’s hard for me to get drunk anymore. But it’s not like I’m avoiding the drinks, maybe it’s because I don’t want to be left alone. Is it just because I want to catch someone’s attention by being alone? Loneliness is so definite to me. If someone was to be by my side, would there be enough of me to share? It’s a question mark I don’t want to include. At that moment, I hear a voice through his call. The promise to meet up for drinks must have been canceled. He hangs up and grumbles, and my gaze becomes fixed to the family picture sloppily hanging by the meter. Do people lose themselves because they don’t have a home or a path to walk down? Or is it because even though they have many places to go, there is not one person waiting for them there?

I guess I’m all alone again.
I guess I’m all alone again.
I guess I’m all alone again.
Once again.

I’m dangerous right now.
I’m dangerous right now.
Don’t come to me.

I don’t know when it began to fall, but I look out the window and see the rain fall collect into puddles on the streets. Over the puddles, I see the reflection of an electronic display alerting drivers of a car accident. Why, why at this moment, do I suddenly tear as I’m reminded of you, you who’s probably living happily… Next to the term ‘death’ is the number one… Why does that number look so lonely.

It’s a night where I miss you dearly, and my heart slips with the rain.
I need you, yes I need you, my airbag.



Crack AU where Solas is literally that really cute fluffy “wolf” that’s you can see in his romance card.

Through some hand-wavey shenanigoats, Solas finds himself trapped in a shift form–and not a particularly useful one at that. Or perhaps, it’s more useful than his assumed persona as a wandering apostate–as a mutt, he’s unassuming enough to convince a kind-hearted Dalish elf to pick him up. Now under the alias of “Snowy”, he certainly needs to tweak a few of his plans, but thankfully, this Lavellan is more than happy to get him closer and closer to his missing orb…

Tablo’s lyric notebook revealed

Tablo‘s lyric notebook was revealed recently and it has been gaining attention from netizens.

Tablo’s new song “Airbag” has been performing well on the various digital charts after being released on October 14th. With the release of the song, Tablo’s notebook, which he has used in preparation for this new album, was revealed. The notebook contains the traces of his past 2 years and seems to indicate just how much meaning the new album holds for Tablo.

Before signing with YG Entertainment, Tablo prepared for his new album alone while going through the scandal where he was accused of lying about graduating from Stanford. The tough times he must have endured as well as the hard work he put into the album preparation are evident in his notebook. One page of the notebook is filled with lyrics that seem to be have been erased and rewritten several times, as if he had turned to music to escape from the difficult times.

“Airbag” features Tablo’s deep, insightful rap lyrics offset by an acoustic sound in the background, and features the haunting voice of Brown Eyed Soul’s Naul.

  • Nina:Her life just keeps getting more and more complicated day by day. Everyone around her starts dropping like flies. But for some reason she’s still in love with him, I think. I still don’t know why-
  • Paul:What do you mean?! Come on! She doesn’t know why?! I thought we had an understanding here.
  • Nina:I don’t know why. Elena may know why. I’m just trying to figure it out. I- to be honest- wouldn’t put up with- with either of you two!
  • Paul:But don’t you see how much I love you?
Do people lose themselves because they don’t have a home or a path to walk down? Or is it because even though they have many places to go, there is not one person waiting for them there? I need an airbag before I crash into the colossal sadness that is coming my way.
