You are the sun and I am just the planets Spinning around you
I’ve done nothing but listen to “The Last of the Real Ones” by Fall Out Boy ever since this post. I had to get it out of my system one way or another and it just turned into… whatever the heck I was trying to portray here lmao
Now that I think about it, this comeback is so clever? They mentioned that this comeback marks the end of Seventeen as “boys” and that this comeback reflects on all that they’ve done up until this point, and from the M/V, we can clearly see that from the props from Al1 teasers, as well as the references to the scenes they’ve done from the music videos leading up to this comeback.
The fact that this comeback is called CLAP means its the end of an “act” and they’re giving a round of applause for the end of their “play” which is Seventeen as boys from debut up till now.
I can’t wait to see what kind of image/sound they will give up in future comebacks, but for now I’ll enjoy this colorful era :’)
I got curious and translated the title of the OST ‘’ Yonaka Ni Kiku To Kowai ‘’
And that’s when all the piece came together.
Yonaka Ni Kiku To Kowai means something like:
‘’ I am scared when I hear it in the middle of the night. ‘’
The ‘’ I ‘’ here…. Is Shinsou.
Shinsou is scared when he hears ‘’it’’ in the middle of the night…
‘’ It ‘’ is all the noises you hear in the song. The laughing children, the whispers, the bloody screams… That’s what he hears everytime he tries to sleep. The voices from his past.. And because of them, he just cannot sleep. That’s where his bags comes from.
The humming in the background must be his mother’s lullaby. Because he wouldn’t be able to sleep at night, she would sing him to sleep. Her voice would cover the voices in his head….
