but whats mind-blowing to me is the fact that bangtan listed ‘am i wrong’ as their album track but crediting only kevin moore (keb’ mo’s real name) as the writer & composer when they have basically recreated the whole song. no one else took credit like how past artists would ㅠㅠ
i find that very very endearing and downright humble, the whole staff producers too. cool team~
edit: wiki listed the WRITERS: kevin moore (cover), sam klempner, james reynolds, josh wilkinson, rap monster, supreme boi, gaeko, pdogg, ADORA, the PRODUCERS: kevin moore (cover), sam klempner, james reynolds, josh wilkinson.
regardless, i still think theyre a cool team~~
but lets, lets talk about how savage
the world’s goin’ crazy how about you how bout ya’ you think it is okay? i don’t.. think so even having ears, they don’t hear even having eyes, they don’t see in all of their hearts, there live fish and the name is selfish selfish
we’re all dogs, pigs, because we get angry we become dogs storks vs crow-tits it’s a war errday it’s a crazy world, yeah drives us all crazy that’s right, we’re all crazy all right now lets shout out MAYDAY MAYDAY
and direct the rappers are
that’s right kid you’ve gone crazy the fact that you’re not crazy in this crazy world makes you crazy (there’s hate) the entire earth and the sky and all around HELL YEAH (there’s hate) online or offline HELL YEAH
if you see the news and feel nothing if that comment means nothing if that hatred means nothing you’re not normal and that makes you abnormal
in case you dont know, yoongi was actually taking a jab at a government official who not long ago had made disparaging remarks during a meeting with newspaper reporters, at which he said that 99% of his country’s people are “like dogs and pigs.” i quote,
with whats going on in their very own country (as well as everywhere else around the world, for that matter) bangtan is basically saying how insane the world we’re living in is and how problematic the societal boundaries are. how ignorant and selfish ppl can be, because bystanders are just as wrong as the perpetrators, likewe’re living everyday with these fallacious moral values up our faces and yet, why wont we say anything?
i think the whole world has gone crazy i think the whole world is coming to an end oh why
you don’t say?
which is why when namjoon said
are you ready for this are you ready for this are you ready for this
its almost like hes jeering back at everyone with the same offensive thoughts, challenging the system, like, look, look at us, look at how we’d roll and try to make the world better, look at how we’ll try to change things for the better, even when we know how ugly it can get, even when we’re not ready. WE ARE.
and when the vocal line goes
did i, what? say something wrong? did i, what? lie about something? going crazy, crazy am i wrong? am i wrong? wherever i go the world’s gone crazy
i lost it at jimins craaaayjiii cos it sounded exactly like he lost it right there askjhd they still find it in themselves to stay true like
even if i walk in this crazy world’s path i still want to live longer i still want to keep looking for it, my belief/faith
so yes, i think its brilliant that they went with ‘am i wrong’ and 21st century girl’ (which is also another exceptional track) as follow-up songs in their promotion. ‘am i wrong’ as well as at least half of the songs from their wings album are quite frankly, a perfect response to the rude government official and to every insult they have ever gotten. like, damn genius, what a clever way to make a COMEBACK
I’ve been to a place this dark before. Nearly made the biggest mistake. But what was the mistake? Ever cutting myself in the first place or not cutting deep enough? Dear mom, I am so sorry. I’m so sorry that I fucked everything up. It’s not your fault. I’m not hungry. For the first time in months I don’t care about food. I don’t care about feeling the gap by eating or by hurting myself a little; the gap’s too wide now. I tried so hard to be someone everybody could like. But no matter how hard I try, I’ll always be the same ridiculous pointless blob. I’ll always hurt people and I’ll always let people down. I’m so sorry mom. I just hate myself so much more than I could ever love anything. I guess I did achieve one thing, I wrote the most boring suicide note in the history of the world. - rae earl
- i cried from the beginning to the end of this whole episode. this isnt a joke though..seriously…this episode hit me so hard…especially this part…it’s just so sad that rae, that anyone ever felt like this was the only solution…it’s so sad that so many people take their lives each day…it’s so sad that anyone ever felt so broken that it resulted to this…also hats off to everyone who helped out in this scene bc it was done so…hauntingly brilliant.
i am so sick of ppl who call mindless self indulgence, a band that is 50% strong, independent women, sexist, then call their white boy pop punk faves who write lyrics abt killing their ex girlfriends the cornerstones of feminism in the music industry
ahaha wait, what the heck…? how does UNDYNE know anything about all that…?
i think alphys more than anyone would be very understanding of when someone makes a mistake or keeps a secret. but just what kind of mistakes were happening when they were all underground…?
this is another page that was originally 2 pages of 3 and 4 panels respectively, then combined into 1. so it’s technically like getting two pages! i guess. sorry if it’s one-page updates for awhile. it’s a busy time of year!
